WALTER + CHANTELE | ENGAGEMENT AT QUIET WATERS PARK | MARYLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER
This beautiful couple is getting married this upcoming Sunday in downtown DC and I am beyond honored to be their photographer. From day 01 of talking to Chantele via video chat about her and Walter's 10+ year journey together, I fell in love with their passion for each other. Their unmistakable bond, that began just as friends, has grown these soulmates together with a vigor for the incredible next chapter that lies ahead.
I met up with Walter + Chantele at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis on a heavy overcast day back in March. Chantele was absolutely gorgeous in her deep purple party dress and bright fushia shawl, smiling from ear to ear next to Walter, handsome and shy. Despite the winter chill still in the air, these two melted into each other effortlessly, bringing all the romance and warmth needed to their session.
Even though I loved my video conversation with Chantele prior, I was so looking forward to meeting them both in person, and for good reason. These two are some of the sweetest people I know. Getting to hear details about their wedding day like we were old friends, or trying to make them laugh when I knew they were freezing in front of the camera, brought a carefree quality to our connection. We were making memories together while documenting this amazing part of their love/wedding story - even when we huddled together to keep our distance from a pack of ~15 deer who crossed our path on the way to the bayside of QWP.
I have no doubt that these two were meant to be and that their DC Wedding will be stunning, intimate, and full of class - just like them. Congrats Walter + Chantele!
