kelly + sam :: engaged!

backstage pass.


sam + kelly :: engaged! :: university of maryland, college park.

i was absolutely thrilled when kelly wrote to tell me she + sam were engaged — he popped the question just weeks after kristi + jon’s awesome wedding where kelly was a bridesmaid! even more awesome, kelly is kristi’s younger sister — so fun! kelly + kristi (like most sisters) are similar in some ways, but very different in others. they are both gorgeous blondes and totally in love, with incredible, positive energy. however, while kristi + jon are total hams in front of the camera, kelly + sam are much more mellow (dare i say, camera shy?) — in fact, when i went back to look for pics of them at kristi + jon’s wedding i only had one photo of sam from the entire night! it was great to see them again, and i loved getting to know them better during our session.

they met and fell in love a few years ago while attending the university of maryland — they worked together at the performing arts center (which is how they first met) and so we started our session in the theatre. it was very cool to have all access to such a unique spot, and with so much meaning! from there we ran all over campus, chasing the sun and visiting some of their favorite spots — the mall + fountain, the sun dial, jim henson’s statue, the famed bronze testudo, and even a topiary version of the beloved mascot. it was a gorgeous summer evening and i’m so very excited for this fabulous couple!

a huge congrats to kelly + sam — enjoy!

  1. OMG love these pics from UMCP!!! Especially the one if the engagement ring on Testudo! That is awesome. Makes me want to go back to campus to walk around! Love your work girl!

  2. Kelly

    You did such an amazing job of capturing our love! And I love the blog! Anyone who knows Sam, knows it is incredibly difficult to get a photo of him (even though he photographs so well! When you’re that good looking, well… anyway!) We’re looking forward to the wedding! =)

    The photos are amazing, just like Kel and Sam!
