Jenny & Rich’s Firefighter Engagement Photos at Middletown Overlook

Firefighter engagement photos were a first for me, and I hope not the last. I have such immense respect for everything they do, and it’s been a gift meeting several firefighters this year.

The Couple

Jenny and I met at the YMCA this year. In the midst of a pandemic, we both found ourselves working in-person at the Y. We’d chat every Tuesday, weaving our way through various topics of conversation and sometimes you just know you’re of like mind. One day we got to the topic of weddings, and I told her I was a photographer. She just so happened to be expecting a proposal in the next few months, so we obviously veered our talkative themes a’thataway. 

When Rich proposed on December 19th of this past year, he chose the beautiful Carroll Creek in Downtown Frederick, Maryland. Now, I’m not sure if you’ve ever stepped downtown in Frederick around the holidays, but let me just tell you that it is MAGICAL. They went out for an evening stroll looking at all of the boats, and that’s where he proposed! Her parents had come into town and everything, so it was pretty special.

Jenny and Rich have been together since 2015, and recently moved to Maryland. I have a special kind of respect for couples who moved here at the start of the pandemic, because they have yet to truly experience the area and meet people. Luckily, Rich has his firefighter community, and he serves in Frederick. We obviously had to incorporate this integral and meaningful part of their lives into their engagement photos!

I cannot wait for their wedding this upcoming fall, to happen in Northern Pennsylvania. Of course the first thing I thought of was “The Office”. I’m positive this will be entirely separate, but being near Scranton still makes me super excited. 

They plan to have little doughnuts at the cocktail bar and an antique firetruck, and it’s going to be a party to remember. 

The love these two share for one another is apparent, and what a joy it is to see people finding their person, and someone how feels like home.

"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."
