Bekah and Brandon were home on the Eastern Shore for a school break so we took full advantage of a beautiful Autumn day to squeeze in their engagement session.  I love photographing these two.  They make it so easy and that laugh of Bekah’s is so infectious it lights up my lens.  I cannot wait for their […]
