Middletown Overlook Engagement with Photographer Frederick MD, Sarah Laughland Photography

Sunsets are a perk of living this life. Whatever a day may bring, staying for that sunset makes it worth it. Since becoming a photographer, I’ve become keenly aware of weather patterns and how different sunsets fill the sky. It’s made me stop and give gratitude more often. What a wonderful side effect of noticing your surroundings!

Photographer Frederick MD

When scheduling sessions, you’re always wishing for that bright orange sunset. The most beautiful light is the the kind that scatters light evenly in a glow across the land. We were gifted just that on this day for Michele and Adam’s engagement session! A stunning sky awaited us at the Middletown Overlook in Frederick, so we embraced it with open arms!

Michele and I have known one another for years, and getting to document a little of their love story was such a joy. Michele and Adam have a beautiful daughter, and I am over the moon excited to capture photos of all of them next fall at their wedding!

The Session

We met a mystical dude who left us little notes on our car, which was just an added bonus to the grand evening. When we got there he was feeding ants juice, so we knew it was a good sign for the evening! 😂

We started wondering in what looked a lot like Ireland, and made it to the overlook just in time for sunset. Michele and Adam ended the evening in true celebratory style, popping champagne, heyyyyyy 🙂

Check their amazing engagement session and let me know what you think! Looking for an engagement photographer willing to climb on things to get the perfect shot who also loves a good laugh? Fill out my contact form and let’s talk!

"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."
