LOVE me some Tim Riddick Photography ~ one of my all-time alternative Washington, DC wedding photographers for sure. Thanks to him, I have Marissa & Trey’s beautiful, casual Maryland engagement session to share this afternoon!

Spring is a fab season for engagement session ~ and parks [personally] make one of the best engagement session locations. They are so full of beautiful, natural shots that really bring out a couple’s love & affection. Enjoy!

Marissa & Trey’s Brookside Gardens Engagement Session in Wheaton, MD

About the couple:

Trey and I met when I was 16 years old (over 7 years ago.) He was living in Miami at the time and we met through a friend, becoming inseparable immediately. We hung out as friends for months and one fateful night Trey asked me if I’d be his “girlfriend or something?” I laughed and we talked on the phone all night (I said yes of course) and since that night we have not gone to bed not as boyfriend and girlfriend or fiancées or, now husband and wife.

Just a few months into our relationship I moved with my mother to North Carolina, while Trey stayed behind in Miami. It was a tough few months but not long after he followed. We were together for 5 years when he popped the question.

Sometimes I really, really love super casual & laid-back proposal stories. Don’t get me wrong, the surprise/perfectly planned ones get me too, but there is something to be said about proposals that are just so naturally raw and casual.

We were visiting my family down in Miami and having dinner with my family at our favorite dinky restaurant in town. He asked me to go get him some condiments and I said no, you go. He said please would you? So I did. I came back and sure enough there was a small box on my plate of food. He clumsily spilled out of his chair on to one knee and asked me if I would marry him!? Without even answering I jumped into his arms and gave him a kiss (and then of course said yes!)

Congratulations Marissa & Trey ~ especially since your wedding was just a few weeks ago!! A special thanks to Tim Riddick Photography for sharing this beautiful Maryland engagement session!
