Stefanie & Doug – Naval Academy / Loews Annapolis Wedding Photography



Stefanie and Doug told me they just wanted a few good pictures, nothing too crazy or time-consuming. What they didn’t tell me was how freakin’ photogenic they would be! The way Doug looks at Stefanie is what every girl hopes for. This wedding was a true joy to photograph, and I’m pretty sure I was smiling nonstop looking at their photos.

Aedan and Rosie – Newborn Photos



Heather and Jason were one of my couples from three years ago and it was a pleasure to see them again! They now have beautiful twin babies – Aedan and Rosie. After a long stay in the NICU, everyone is finally home and doing great. I was so honored that Heather asked me to take some photos, because she is quite a talented photographer herself. I loved capturing all the joy and tenderness in this family, and I have no doubt that Heather and Jason will be (and already are!) awesome parents.

Jaci & Josh – Alexandria Family Session



Jaci and Josh and I all went to college together! I say this with an exclamation point because it is pretty unusual for me to know anyone in this area who went to my tiny little Abilene Christian University in Texas. (Okay, it’s not that tiny, but still…) I didn’t know Josh too well, but Jaci and I were in the journalism program together, and we shared some classes and school newspaper time. Jaci reached out to me recently to see if I’d be interested in doing an updated family portrait for them (they’ve been married five years) and I was thrilled because I hadn’t even realized they were close by! So we did more of a lifestyle shoot where I came to their house and petted their adorable golden doodle Clementine and we tried to recreate some of the things they enjoy doing together – drinking coffee, hanging out on the couch, and going for walks in their neighborhood. It was so fun to see these guys and I hope it’s not another decade before we do it again! Haha.

Katie & Rich – Herrington on the Bay Maryland Wedding Photography



Katie and Rich’s wedding was beautiful and crazy and fun all mixed into one day. I knew I was in for some laughs from the very beginning with this crowd. And sure enough, I was not disappointed. From the hilarious email Katie’s mom sent me, to her dad carrying around and dancing with a GoPro all day, to Rich’s brother borrowing my camera at the reception for a good ten minutes and taking photos… awesome day.

Liana & Zach – Wilmington, DE and Nemours Mansion Engagement Shoot



We started off this hot and humid morning with some photos around the DuPont Environmental Education Center in Wilmington, Delaware. Check out the bridge and those views! I figured out pretty quickly that Liana and Zach have very sweet and positive attitudes, and I’m pretty sure they are both geniuses which they downplay completely. Our next stop was the Nemours Mansion, the 300-acre country estate of Alfred DuPont, and holy moly was this place gorgeous. I could have shot there all day, but we were limited to an hour (although I did nearly get to extend my stay as the woman with the golf cart tried to drive off without me on it.)

Annie & Jeremy – Kent Manor Inn Wedding Photography



I feel like we nailed this one. Annie and Jeremy’s wedding day was not only beautiful, it was emotional too. Annie’s mother flew all the way from China to be at the wedding, and I welled up more than a few times watching her and Annie interact, and then gave up holding back when they danced together. The whole day was flawless, and seriously, these are some pretty pictures! (If I do say so myself.) :)

Paola & James – Odyssey Cruise Washington DC Wedding Photography



I loved this wedding! The intimate setting, the beautiful sunset cruise on the boat, the gorgeous nighttime photos we got… it was perfection. Pao and James are great together, and I loved how they let me pull them out repeatedly for some photos off the back of the boat as the sky got prettier and prettier. The food was some of the best I had all year, and it was such a treat to get to see DC from the water. Special thanks to my awesome second shooter Jennifer Smutek for rocking out some awesome shots at this wedding!

Sarah & Matt – Baltimore Harbor East Engagement Photography



Sarah and Matt wanted a clear sunny morning for their engagement photos, and patience and persistence finally paid off! After a few weather-related rescheduled dates, we picked the most perfect morning for a shoot. I had a total blast walking around Baltimore with these two – they were up for anything so we did a lot of wandering around their neighborhood and I found some neat new spots. They were completely at ease and comfortable in front of the camera, which made me super stoked for their wedding day!

Amanda & Jake – Savage Mill Maryland Engagement Photography



How have I never photographed at Savage Mill before?! This place blew my mind. I’d visited, but seeing it through my lens was a different story. So many neat nooks and crannies!

Heather & Justin – Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Kent Island Wedding Photography



I felt like I clicked with Heather from the first time we met. She is just so incredibly sweet and genuinely likable. I couldn’t wait to meet Justin at the engagement shoot to see who this guy was who had scored such an awesome catch. Turns out he is equally likable, and it was no surprise to me that they would have a wedding with 200+ guests and manage to make them all feel special. The toasts were some of the best I’ve ever heard, and the dance party was one of the most epic I’ve ever photographed. Seriously. They went crowd surfing, guys. This was a day for the record books for sure.
