I’m excited to introduce you to #REHPlovebirds, Nicole and Chris’ Shrine of St. Anthony engagement photos in Ellicot City, Maryland!
I met Nicole and Chris through their friends, Cecilia and Stephen, who you may remember from their classic winter wedding this past January. Cecilia and Stephen were sweet enough to refer me to their friends after their engagement and I’m so excited they did! Nicole and Chris are a wonderful couple and you can see that plain as day in their Shrine of St. Anthony engagement photos!
This session is extra special because the location where we did the shoot has special meaning to the couple. Very special meaning. The grounds of the shrine was where Chris first told Nicole he loved her, which made it the perfect place to pop the question! That’s right, Nicole and Chris were engaged at this very location, which made the choice to do their engagement photos here a no-brainer.
Chris, The Romantic
Chris created a super romantic experience for Nicole when he proposed at the Shrine. He had friends help him drape a covered pathway in twinkly lights and line the walkway with candles. And he proposed at night so all of the lights really let off a romantic vibe. We didn’t recreate the proposal for their Shrine of St. Anthony engagement photos, but not to worry, we snapped a photo in the same place where Chris popped the question.
Congratulations and best wishes, love birds! I’m excited for your wedding in May!
