Kaitlin & Jon – Terrapin Beach Park Engagement Photography



What a great sunset! I felt like I was at the perfect place to watch it at Terrapin Beach Park, and with some awesome people who kept me laughing throughout our shoot. Kaitlin is one of these people you can’t help but like, and immediately feel like you’ve known for longer than you actually have. Jon is notoriously not a fan of having his photo taken, but he could not have been nicer about it, and patiently indulged me and all my oddball ideas. Kaitlin told a funny story about how she knew something was up when Jon was about to propose simply because he was the one to suggest they take a photo together! But seriously, I had so much fun with these two (and their adorable dog Maddie and dog wrangler/friend Alison) and come on, how could I not in a setting this gorgeous?!

Taylor Family – Baltimore Family Portrait Photographer



This was a treat. I loved getting to see Matt and Jenn again, five years after their wedding, and meeting their two beautiful children! We hung out, ran through sprinklers, and I even got to share in some ice cream. It was summer family fun at its best and I felt honored to be there to capture it!

Sarah & Dave – Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant Wedding Photography



Sarah and Dave had the sweetest ceremony in front of all their family and friends at the Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant in Alexandria. Dave’s big family and Sarah’s small one combined to celebrate with quite the entourage of nieces and nephews and lots of love and laughter. I witnessed so many great moments and heartfelt emotion between these two. One of my favorite parts was the red cardinal that made an appearance (and quite a noise!) during their ceremony.

Elizabeth & Curt – Running Hare Vineyard Wedding Photographer



The first thing most people notice when they look at Elizabeth and Curt is their serious height difference. And being so good-natured, they took a lot of gentle teasing about it during the toasts and throughout their wedding day. But when I looked at them, beaming and happy, it wasn’t the only thing I saw. I saw the way Curt grins when he looks at Elizabeth, and I saw how she is at ease and totally herself in his presence. I saw joy in their companionship and a clear, strong bond. And that speaks volumes, not inches.

Marisa & Adam – Baltimore Museum of Industry Wedding



From start to finish, this day was pure fun. I loved that Marisa and Adam wanted to embrace the quirky coolness of the Baltimore Museum of Industry and do most of their photos inside, because it challenged me to shoot some truly unique images. (Plus it was super windy outside and nobody wants a crazy windblown look.) The bridal party kept me laughing with their antics, and let’s not forget the reception – you know it’s a good wedding when there’s an epic pants rip!

Wendy & Richard – Linganore Winery Wedding Photography



Wendy and Richard’s vision for a sunny and warm wedding day at Linganore Winecellars was a little crushed when the weather turned up cold and rainy all day long. But they didn’t let it get them down, and instead embraced whatever ideas I had for making pretty pictures, including using every patio and covered area on site. Haha. But seriously, we all had such a great time and I loved seeing their smiles and optimism! As always, Bobby Dawson of ID Pro DJ kept the dance floor full and the party hopping (not that this crowd needed any encouragement!)

Becky & Ryan – Belvedere Baltimore Wedding Photography



Becky and Ryan brought great energy to their wedding day, and I loved the relaxed time we had doing their portraits! Everyone was awesomely calm and easy-going and I kept thinking, “what a great group of people” pretty much every few minutes. But of course I expected nothing less – I photographed Becky’s cousin’s wedding a couple years ago, and her brother’s wedding not too long before that! I am always so honored to be invited back by a family, especially one as lovely as Becky’s.

Ashley & Jeff – Myrtle Beach South Carolina Wedding Photography



Ashley and Jeff’s wedding at the Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach was the perfect start to my wedding season. Always fun to kick it off with a destination weekend! :) Though breezy and chilly conditions made us bundle up all weekend, we were rewarded with a lovely sky and sunset on the wedding day! Ashley and Jeff personalized everything with little touches for their guests, including some fun Harry Potter details.

Sarah & Jon – Mt Washington Mill Dye House Baltimore Wedding Photography



I’ve been looking forward to Sarah and Jon’s wedding for a while! Not only because their venue (Mt. Washington Mill Dye House) is awesome and it was my first time there, but also because of Sarah’s story and the deep love I know she and Jon share. We had fun playing around with red and green smoke bombs across the street, hollering at their adorable pug, and of course setting up some epic night shots.

Sarah & Dave – Jefferson Memorial DC Cherry Blossom Engagement



It’s cherry blossom season again, guys! Although I don’t know what blooms are actually left out there after our “snow.” But Sarah and Dave got their session in just before everything froze, and we scrounged up a couple of early blossoms and combined it with sunrise at the Jefferson for a truly beautiful morning. These two told me repeatedly how awkward they are to photograph, but I think I proved them wrong! :)
