Lindsey and Doug have a really fun “how we met” story – their moms set them up and it actually worked out! Best friends from freshman year at college, Lindsey and Doug’s mothers kept in touch over the years and when Lindsey happened to move to PA for a new job, Doug’s mom was quick to invite her over for a family dinner. Doug was duly impressed, and a few days later Lindsey and Doug were attending a New Year’s Eve party together. And the rest, as they say, is history! (This is the abbreviated version, but I really enjoyed hearing the whole thing!)Continue reading ...
Katie and Eric’s Baltimore Pier 5 wedding could not have been more picture-perfect. Their chemistry was undeniable, and their first look was probably one of my favorites all year! I had so much fun walking around on the water with these two and their bridal party.Continue reading ...
Jen and Luke had the best sense of humor and attitudes on their sweltering wedding day. It was probably the hottest day of the year, but they survived it in style! I loved their sense of playfulness, and especially their hashtag: #letsgetbissi!Continue reading ...
Amanda and San made a beautiful baby! This little cutie Julia did so awesome – adorable and sleepy almost the entire time. Love that full head of hair!Continue reading ...
Samy and Nik were warm and inviting from the moment I met them, and they completely won me over by bringing me lots of chocolate goodies (which I’m actually eating as I type this.) They been married for a number of years now, but unfortunately haven’t been able to live in the same place due to school and work and life. So I knew these photos were special, meant to commemorate Samy’s time in DC before she moves and they turn the page on a new chapter of their lives. Once again, this city at sunrise does not disappoint!Continue reading ...
Sarah and Matt’s Belvedere wedding was classic and beautiful and very much “them.” Though dampened (only literally) by a monster storm, they didn’t let that stop the party! Matt spent a long three months carefully planning the perfect proposal and engagement for Sarah, and I know he will put that same attention and detail into their marriage! It’s easy to see how much these two adore each other.Continue reading ...
I was delighted when Caithlin and Mark contacted me for this family session, and excited to meet their new addition, Connor! I could not get over the full head of hair on this kiddo! So adorable.Continue reading ...
Molly and Vernon’s story started back in 2008 when she walked right up to him at a college bar and made him dance with her. Although they hit it off, the timing ended up not being quite right for them. But three years later, they reconnected when they randomly ran into each other at a football game and discovered the chemistry was just as strong! I really enjoyed getting to know these two better and hearing their story. They are so incredible sweet to each other and I have no doubt the love and respect they share will carry them through for a lifetime.

We might have picked the worst traffic day for our photo session, but Wendy + Richard + an awesome blue sky + lovely weather equaled a total success! Even after trekking all across downtown Baltimore, these two had such great attitudes and energy and smiles.Continue reading ...
Meredith and Joshua have to be some of the sweetest and kindest people I’ve ever met. They were pulled in about one million different directions on their wedding day, but never spoke an ill word or stopped smiling. I also loved that their “after party” was a trip to the local diner – in their wedding attire!
