Lloyd & Maddy | Engaged {Downtown Canton in Baltimore, MD}

Maddy and Lloyd, I hate to say it, but your pup Melvin was the star of the show in your engagement session! We were watching the forecast all week for this session and thankfully the rain decided to stay away. We walked around Canton near the water and Melvin was all smiles. After taking pictures downtown, we finished the session at Sherwood Gardens! Even though all the tulips had finished blooming, the flower bushes were still showing off their beautiful colors.

It started with a delicious breakfast before a run at Oregon Ridge. Matty and Angel run this trail all the time together and stop at this cute bench to take pictures of the dogs. The bench made for the perfect spot for Matty to pop the question!
