Maryland Countryside Engagement Photos: Allison & Ben

Engagements

Maryland Countryside Engagement Photos

It’s safe to say the fall colors in Maryland’s countryside were showing off for us last week! The leaves all popped just a couple days before Allison and Ben’s engagement session, and I was thrilled about the timing. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, and it’s the best when the weather cooperates too!

They chose their friend’s family farm for their location, which was a wonderful decision. From the white fences to the barn to the open field lined with trees, everywhere we turned was a gorgeous backdrop. Such a perfect spot to capture some sweet moments between these two!!

Allison and Ben also brought their adorable pup, Debo! I have to say, I don’t know if I’ve ever witnessed a dog having this much fun at a session. He was cracking us up!! In between running around and exploring, he did pose for a few photos and did a great job. Such a good boy!

Congratulations, Allison & Ben! Enjoy some of my favorite moments below!! I can’t wait to see you again in the spring as you officially become husband and wife!
