We had such a good time with Alta and Kevin at their recent engagement session! We met up with them at Hayfields Country Club in Hunt Valley, Maryland, which is where we’ll be photographing their wedding in the fall as well. The weather was bitterly cold so we spent a majority of the time indoors – and given how pretty the venue is, it provided a lot of fun spaces for photos!

Alta and Kevin are such a cute couple and once they got comfy in front of the camera, we made our way through the mansion, stopping at various nooks and points of interest for photos. I loved the long staircase with the cherry blossom mural, and the entrance with the sparkling chandelier made the perfect backdrop to show off the dip they’ve been practicing. 🙂 It was also a great chance to visit the venue pre-wedding day and find spots for things like photographing dress details and making metal notes of great settings and light for bridal portraits.

As an added bonus, Hayfields overlooks one of our favorite places, Oregon Ridge Park. We’re so excited to come back in autumn when the grounds and trees will be full of color – perfect for outdoor portraits!
