Jim & Jess – St Michael’s Engagement Session

Jul 18, 2012

Monday, I had the pleasure of going on a little journey to St Michael’s, Maryland to photograph Jim and Jess’ engagement session. I met Jim through one of my biggest fans in this world, Jessica whose wedding I photographed back in February (you should also thank her for being solely responsible for me bringing back my wrap ups). Anyway, back to Jess and Jim. I could not think of two people better for each other. They have such a sweet and tender emotional connection that shines through in the photos. Both make each other laugh and it is so easy to tell that they love each other unconditionally. I am super bummed that I am already booked for their wedding next May but was honored to have the opportunity to photograph their engagement session.

We started the day off on land owned by a friend of theirs right on the water. It was absolutely beautiful and a perfect backdrop for their photos. And I am posting a ton of these because I don’t get to on their wedding day. 🙂



We spent some time outside on the streets of St Michaels. Such a cute little town.

After a few outdoor shots, we wandered into Eastern Shore Brewing company to cool off and grab a drink! It made for a great way to end the day. 🙂


I love these last two.

    Dani, I can’t even convey how beautiful these are. You captured Jim and my spirit in friendship and love so perfectly. Working with you was wonderful, and even though you can’t do the wedding I definitely look forward to working with you to capture other important events in our lives 🙂

    So many things to love about this session. The shot with the huge tree in the background is gorgeous! Love the playful yet romantic images of the couple at the bar. Great work (as always)!

    So I just wanted to say that I got the disk today with all our pictures on it and they are AMAZING. Seriously, for anyone reading this who is thinking of going with Dani Leigh, her photos are incredible and the special packaging for the CD is so beautiful we can actually display it in our living room. So wonderful! Thank you Dani!
