This past weekend Sandi and I had an awesome time with the recently engaged and soon to be Brittany and Marlin Hayman, at Batsto Village. We've been wanting to do a photo shoot at Batsto for a while now, and these two were the perfect couple to bring there. We got there a couple hours before sunset and shot until the sun went down over the historical village that dates back all the way to the 1700s.
I've known Brittany since she was a little girl with braces, as her mom was very close to mine, and she had spent many weekends staying with my mom once her family moved to Maryland. My mom and her were very close before she passed, even earning my mom the name of Aunt Nancy, so I was extremely happy to get the call from Britt asking me to shoot her engagement and wedding. It had been a while since seeing her, so it was nice to get to talk about how much she loved spending time with my mom and all the fun times they had together.
Britt and her fiance Marlin were a perfect fit for a shoot I had been planning for a while, being fun and energetic, having no problem letting me try a number of different setups and shots, which required us to walk the entire village, with them often having to be patient as I tried different settings to get each shot just the way I had pictured it in my head.
We had a great time walking around Batsto, listening to Britt tell us about all the plans she has for her big day, while Marlin did an excellent job of looking as excited as he could. We can't wait to shoot this wedding knowing how much my mom would be excited to be part of it if she was still here, most likely popping off shots with her own camera the entire time.
