This dreamy, ethereal engagement session at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, MD was photographed by Hannah Bjorndal on Thursday, August 23, 2018. Hannah is a Washington, D.C. wedding photographer who has photographed engagements worldwide in places like Tamarindo, Costa Rica, Paris, France & Miami, Florida. She photographs engagements locally, nationally & internationally and is available for wedding photography worldwide.
Again and again and again I am so, so grateful for the wonderful couples with whom I work. Continually, I’m delighted and amazed by my engaged couples! Chelsea and Mark have quickly found a place in this photographer’s heart, and I am SO excited that I’m their photographer!
A little bit of backstory: I originally met Chelsea and Mark over two years ago, at Healy & Steve’s wedding. Healy & Steve have been some of the best, kindest and most gracious clients I could have asked for, and they’ve referred me some incredible couples (like Rachel & Greg!). When Chelsea & Mark inquired about my photography last winter, I KNEW that we were a great fit before we even met up for wedding-talk! I’m pretty sure we talked for 2+ hours about anything and everything before we even got around to wedding talk. These two are so much fun and have been a delight to work with every step of the way!
As a couple, these two have got it. You can tell – even after just spending a few minutes with them – that they are such a perfect fit for one another. It’s so much fun to photograph a couple that has so much chemistry and who are also so comfortable with one another! This might embarass Mark, but . . . at one point in our session, I heard Chelsea say jokingly, “pretend you love me!” and Mark responded, with SO much love in his voice, “I don’t have to.” They may not have realized I even heard this, but it made my heart so happy! What a beautiful picture of their relationship: jokes + genuine love. Does it get any better?
I’m so so so excited to share these with you! Enjoy!!!
