Matthew + Amanda's Engagement

  • Engagement ring picked out

  • Pinterest board for engagement photos

  • Nails painted

  • Etsy signs in car trunk ☑

Matthew and Amanda had their engagement pretty planned out and there was a time span set for when the proposal would happen. Plus Amanda knew she wanted it at a lighthouse or in DC. Matthew opted for the lighthouse route, and that's where I came in.



Matthew reached out a few months in advance and we planned the proposal around Amanda's birthday dinner. They'd walk around Concord Point Lighthouse, Matthew would propose, we'd take engagement photos, then they'd go out to celebrate!



I got there a few minutes early with Clarissa, my friend/occasional assistant, so we could walk around and get a lay of the land. It wasn't necessary to have Clarissa as a stand in model since (1) I was a stranger to Amanda and (2) it's common for photographers to frequent the lighthouse. Nonetheless, Clarissa kept me company and took behind the scenes footage!


Matthew texted me when they pulled in, I spotted them walking up to the lighthouse, and then it was time for the proposal!



After we made introductions, Amanda said "Let me go to my car, I have signs I want to use!" Since she knew the proposal was coming at some point, she had ordered signs off Etsy and was storing them in her car for when the moment struck, lol. I admire the preparation!!

This was my first time at the lighthouse in Havre de Grace- it was nice! It would have been beautiful during non-cloudy sunset. I don't think I've ever taken photos on the dock before and it was so fun!

Aren't they just adorable?!



And we ended the session with some lift photos, which they killed! That lift pose can be hard to pull off.



Congratulations Matthew + Amanda!!
