Katie and Boomer are my neighbors, and really nice, awesome people. I first met Boomer when he came over 1 day to help my fiance Kyle with a project. Boomer is not his real name; just a nickname that he's gone by since a kid. It took us a little bit to get used to calling him that, but we're used to it now. We exchanged conversation, finding out that he's a Steelers fan and talking about how they'd beat our Ravens that year. Then we met Katie, and after quickly becoming friends and hanging out with them, I just love them together. They are a perfect fit for each other, and we couldn't be happier for them. When we got their save the date, we laughed because under their photos they combined their names and added 1 of those signs you'd see in a comic book with the word KABOOM in capitals. I loved it!
My fiance and I will be at their wedding next month, but since we will be guests not photographers, we wanted to do a mini photo session with them. We've thrown out the idea once or twice before, but could never get our schedules right to do one. We finally got a chance to take them out to Susquehanna St. Park in Havre de Grace, by the old mill. It was such a gorgeous day and just the right temperature; thankfully the rain decided to stay under wraps that day. When we arrived, there were a few families down by the mill and adjoining house, so we started up on the hill at the main house and the old church. By the time we finished up there, we had the mill to ourselves for photos.
Kyle and I took turns shooting them, so while he was up, I was his light stand and vice-versa.
I was cleaning up our gear about to move to the next spot where Kyle was setting up. As I stood up, I saw this and immediately snapped a few; good thing I didn't put my camera away yet! I'm pretty sure they didn't even know I took these until later.
Katie & Boomer, congratulations again, and we can't wait for you guys to tie the knot next month!
