When I meet up with couples for engagement photos, none of the locations are secret or require special private access. I suppose it’s a risk that one time we’ll be over run with people everywhere, but over the years I’ve learned to know which places are both secluded from masses of people and beautiful settings. Ida Lee Park is one of those gems!
Kelli and Aaron came in from Maryland and trusted my recommendation of where to meet. As we wandered around, I loved hearing about how they met and their ambitious wedding plans. Kelli is planning to have a fairy tale themed wedding that is showcased through a more grown up vision. Fairy tales and good stories are how she and Aaron first connected. Harry Potter is a shared favorite, so it was meaningful to them to incorporate some of those elements into their photos.
I loved showing this personal side of them, so I hope you too enjoy some of the highlights from Kelli and Aaron’s engagement photos at Ida Lee Park!
