shrine of st Anthony engagement Ellicott City md

On Friday I met up with Sierra and her fiancé Raymond for their engagement session at the GORGEOUS Shrine of St. Anthony in Ellicott City, MD. This was my first time there and I was in awe of the beautiful grounds surrounding the church. We were not able to go inside the church itself but we managed just fine taking photos outside of it and in the nearby gardens!

This session almost didn't happy because it was calling for thunderstorms all day, right up to the time of the session! Sierra is in medical school AND leaving for military training soon, so this was one of the only dates that worked, so rain or shine, we were going to get the job done. We just happened to get SO lucky with a beautiful sunset and not a drop of rain.

Check out the photos below to see what I'm talking about!
