Nicole and Andreas wanted to do a fall engagement session. We had to keep pushing the date back as the fall color was very slow to peak this year. I had scouted out Oregon Ridge Park and Cylburn Arboretum but we finally settled on the Hampton National Historic Site. This 18th century estate was the largest private home in America when it was completed in 1790. I absolutely love shooting here since it has all sorts of wonderful trees, barns, stonework, and gardens. This was a fun session. I climbed some trees, rolled around in leaves, and even hopped into the Loch Raven Reservoir at the end of the day. If I’m filthy by the end of the day it usually means the session went really well.
