Laura & Jeff – Christmas Tree Farm Maternity Portraits



I’ve known Laura since freshman year of college in Texas (and if I tell you how many years that is I’ll feel old) and I’m honored to call her a good friend! Incidentally, she also happens to be a very talented wedding planner if you might need one. :) Anyway, I know just how wanted and loved this baby is, and I have zero doubts about how incredible Jeff and Laura will be at this parenting business. Congratulations guys!

Anna Marie & John – Grey Rock Mansion Baltimore Wedding Photography



Anna Marie has to be one of the most beautiful people I know, inside and out. She radiates enthusiasm and joy and always makes you feel special, even in simple conversation. I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for years, honestly. I photographed Anna Marie’s sister Kate’s wedding many moons ago, and the whole family has been giving me referrals ever since! It was so fun to see 4 or 5 of my past couples in attendance. And since I’ve seen Anna Marie at so many weddings over the years, I was really intrigued to see what hers would be like, and to get to know John a little better too! He is her perfect complement – steady and strong, and very clearly willing to move mountains for her. From happy tears to donuts, the wedding day did not disappoint and the excitement everyone shared was truly contagious. Together I think these two are unbreakable, and I’m so happy to see them finally hitched!

Marisa & Adam – Baltimore Maryland Engagement Photography



Marisa & Adam were incredibly warm and welcoming, despite our chilly 7:30 am meet time. We did some fun pictures in the lobby of their apartment building, then headed out to the farmer’s market, which was already bustling at 8:30am (who are these people who get up so early?! haha), then finished up in Federal Hill by the AVAM. I loved getting to see these guys interact in their home environment, and truly am so excited for their wedding next year! 2016-11-20_0015

Mini Sessions – Washington DC Family Portrait Photography



My first-ever set of mini sessions was a success! If you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about with this term, mini sessions are basically abbreviated portrait sessions for a cheaper price. This year, I’m offering them for $150 and you’ll receive 5 images of my choosing, with the option to view and purchase the rest. I saw lots of familiar faces (previous clients, yay!) and met some new ones, and now due to popular demand, I’m offering a second date for sessions – this Saturday, the 19th!  I have three slots left to fill – shoot me an email for more information or to sign up: emily@emilychastain.com. Turn-around time is 7-10 days so it is not too late for holiday cards. :)

Sara Kate & Tanner – Belmont Manor Elkridge Maryland Wedding Photography



This. Wedding. Was. Awesome. To the point that I would run out of adjectives if I tried to describe it, so instead of my usual paragraph blurb, I think I’ll just let the photos tell the story and interject when needed. :)

Tori & Sean – Savage Mill Engagement Photography



Tori and Sean were so pleasant and interesting to talk to, and walking around Savage Mill with them on a gorgeous November morning was really lovely. Not to mention, their red hair was awesome against the fall leaves! They were so patient with my attempts to get everything just right and making them crawl over rocks and brush and hide in the woods. It’s not easy being a model!

Sam & Al – Boston Wedding Photography



When Sam first contacted me about shooting her wedding in Boston, her vision was for a simple costume party/surprise ceremony. Of course I was immediately on board! But as things evolved, she and Al realized they wanted a few people from out of town to be able to attend and so they decided to do a small ceremony at the lovely Granite Links Golf Club in the morning, followed by brunch and then a Halloween party later in the evening. And it was perfect. The views were incredible, the party was full of epic costumes and it was at a brewery (Castle Island Brewing), so really a big win all the way around. :) These two are so fun and engaging – I loved seeing them interact and truly enjoy each other’s company.

Kelly & Mike – Patapsco State Park Maryland Engagement Photography



It was a gorgeous Sunday afternoon at Patapsco, and Kelly and Mike were serious model material with their expert cuddles and great chemistry. I had so much fun chatting about Greece and practicing the two Greek words I could remember from my trip there a couple of years ago. Haha. ευχαριστώ, guys!

Dawn & Ben – Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Maryland Wedding Photography



Dawn and Ben’s wedding day was full of smiles and happiness and, well, quite a bit of rain. It didn’t really stop all day, but we got out there and made the most of it, and lucked out with a totally awesome sunset!
