This lovely couple, now engaged, were referred to us thru Patrick’s grandfather, who used to be a wedding photographer and is part of our MDPPA chapter (Maryland Professional Photographers of America). For that, Les Henig, we have to thank you! What a beautiful gift of meeting these two amazing souls you have shared with us! We are so excited for their wedding The Mansion at the Valley Country Club, this upcoming August! Check out their beautiful engagement session and love story interview below.
This past weekend, we had the wonderful opportunity to travel to beautiful Martinsburg, West Virginia.

We cannot wait for their September 2018 wedding, at The Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown, WV

Natalia and her husband Nikolay were able to live a fairy tale in a magical Beauty and The Beast stylized photoshoot.
Using two locations, All That Shines Events, LLC and Baker Park in Frederick, MD; we were able to capture the most breathtaking moments between Natalia and Nikolay. You can truly see the love they have shared throughout the day.
Just as Beauty had a little help from Lumiere, Wardrobe, Mrs. Potts, and Cogsworth to create her special look for the ball, Natalia had some amazing vendors to help get her look just right. Special thanks to All That Shines Events, LLC for all the amazing planning and sharing their space for the filming, Spa Noa & Brush Strokes Salon for hair and makeup, April Toney’s Chloe & Isabel Boutique for the “Parisian Belle” by Chloe jewelry, and Flowers by Angels for the beautiful flower arrangements. Natalia looked stunningly gorgeous in her Angelaicos gown making her a true Belle and Nikolay, like a modern day Beast in his Prince Zamira tuxedo.
Jhoann and Anh – observe how also their names are a good match! This beautiful young couple is madly in love, and now they are engaged. When the time was right to start making the arrangements to their wedding day, we met for a consultation and they shared the desire to do their session in a Theater, that was when I definitely knew I really wanted to be this couple’s storyteller. And that is how we ended up having their session at the amazing Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick, MD. That sure made us all VERY excited.
