Allen Pond Park Engagement Photos

Laughter & friendship. These two things will get a pair far. Being in front of a camera isn’t really a natural experience for most people, so going in I like to allow for “warm-up” time. When typing in that search box “engagement photographers DC”, keep in mind how a photographer makes you feel in those first few minutes of getting to know them. The best cure for camera shy jitters is acting a fool. I mean it! Acting a fool and being open to laughing at yourself and vulnerability is the cure! Imani and John were no strangers to my prompts of funny faces and picking each other up, as you will witness! It made for a grand evening at Allen Pond Park. We just jived, and it was a wonderful time to get to know them before their wedding this fall!

Allen Pond Park

We chose Allen Pond Park in Bowie, Maryland as a great central location. Sunset hits the lake just so, and it’s lovely. If you walk around the lake, you’ll find yourself in a heavily wooded area where sunlight streams through. Adventuring is a must, which is why sessions usually last between an hour and an hour and a half. You just never know what you’re going to find. 

When it comes to couples, each pair is different. One of my favorite parts of this job is getting to know you and read how your portraits should be captured. Imani and I quickly found out that we share a love of Harry Potter. She and John adore hiking with their daughter, Gia, and sweet pups! They are building a life together built on friendship, laughter, and family, and it is beautiful to witness. 

Next fall Imani and John’s Halloween Wedding is going to be AMAZING, and I am so revved to capture it! Check out a few favorites from our fall walk in Allen Pond Park!

"Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! Every single picture we got back was nothing short of perfect. Our families and friends were amazed at how great our photos turned out as well as the volume of photos we received. She made sure to capture moments that were special to us on our wedding day, as well as make time to get all of the family photos we wanted. Something that I found to be really helpful was how organized Sarah was. She sent us questionnaires to get to know us and even created a day of timeline so my partner and I, and our families and bridal parties, would know what to expect and when formal photos would be taken. Her attention to detail and caring nature ensured that our photos reflected not only our wedding day but our personalities as well. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work. She is a fantastic photographer and a great person to work with.

"...Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. She spent ample time talking with me about my vision of the day, provided a detailed itinerary to help me stay organized, and was a listening ear when I needed practical wedding advice. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine nature helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition, we are delighted with Sarah’s technical qualities as a photographer - her sense of mise-en-scène, attention to detail, and her remarkable ability to capture poignant and symbolic moments in an inter-cultural, inter-racial, pandemic wedding."

"Beyond being a good photographer, Sarah truly works to make her clients feel comfortable and special during her sessions. She is incredibly personable and there were never any awkward, empty moments during our session! My fiancee and I were truly in the moment and Sarah allowed us to have candid, special moments together while she captured them for us to remember forever...Our day was stress-free thanks to her detailed planning...I absolutely recommend Sarah for anyone and everyone. We are forever thankful for her openness and hard work."
