Brittany & Mark – Mount Vernon Inn Wedding Photography

Brittany and Mark have the sweetest, kindest dispositions, and it was no surprise to learn that they met doing something for other people – City Year. Their wedding at the lovely Mount Vernon Inn had a lot of memorable moments, but my favorite was their first dance when halfway through the DJ switched up the music and they went nuts on the dance floor with the whole bridal party. Such a fun way to kick off the reception!

Lexa & Don – Antrim 1844 Maryland Wedding Photography

Meredith & Anthony – Kent Manor Inn Wedding Photography

Meredith and Anthony’s wedding wins the award for “rainiest wedding day of the year” for sure! We had to laugh at the irony because it also downpoured during Meredith and Anthony’s engagement session. Just when I thought a rainy engagement would guarantee a sunny wedding day… I was wrong. But they didn’t let it stop them from smiling and having fun! We utilized the great porch space at the beautiful Kent Manor Inn and eventually just braved it with some umbrellas and plastic bags over our gear and made some truly unique images.

Elizabeth & Curt – Great Falls Virginia Engagement Photography

Elizabeth and Curt have a certain ease and comfort with each other that is hard to miss. They were up for anything I suggested (including some gentle rock climbing) and nailed the snuggle sessions I made them do. Great Falls offered the perfect variety of backdrops – couldn’t have asked for a better day!

Liana & Zach – Spring Hill Manor Wedding Photography

What an incredible day! It was a bit of a roller coaster, weather-wise, but I’ve never seen a bride as chill as Liana. She smiled the whole entire time and nothing at all phased her. This was one of those times that doing a First Look and seeing each other before the ceremony was key. Watching the storm roll toward us in the sky was like watching a ticking countdown and it did not disappoint. Crazy wind and rain so the ceremony was moved indoors, but after it passed we lucked out with one of the most amazing sunsets. Still can’t get over it! And Liana and Zach were the perfect couple for such an occasion because they are the best models, really. So sweet and loving to one another, and super natural in front of the camera.

Winger Family – Annapolis Family Photography

Lindsay and Josh are some of the kindest and best people I know, and I’m privileged to call them my friends. It’s such a treat seeing their kids grow up in real life and from behind the lens! We all just ran around the backyard for these, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

Dooley Family – Annapolis Baby Photography

I love this family! It’s always heartwarming to see past couples I’ve photographed doing so well, and an honor to meet their new little ones. Macklin is just the cutest with his blue eyes and red hair. And look at that smile!

Shannon & John – Maryland Renaissance Festival Engagement Photography

This session will always be a memorable one for me because I nearly died in a hot air balloon the same morning. (Ok, ok, I exaggerate, but it was a pretty exciting landing.) As it sometimes happens in life, my perfectly planned morning did not go as planned, and I had to call Shannon and John and beg to delay the shoot by an hour. Fortunately, they were nothing but kind and understanding, and welcomed the extra time. Whew! With that resolved, I could focus on their awesome engagement shoot location – the Maryland Renaissance Festival grounds in the off-season! What a neat experience. It’s actually where Shannon and John met, and a big part of their lives every year (John is in a band and a show). It could not have been more perfect for these two (or me – photographer’s dream) and we all had a blast walking around and sharing some cider and snacks they came prepared with. Thanks for the opportunity, guys!

Christen & Stephen – Herrington on the Bay Wedding Photography

I have one word for you – FIREWORKS! So awesome. And that wasn’t the only thing giving off sparks – Christen and Stephen had a few of their own. Not to mention they are so sweet and kind… their wedding day was one I wish I could shoot over and over again!

Ashley & Mark – Lake Linganore Engagement Photography

When I suggested Ashley and Mark pick a spot for their engagement photos that had special meaning for them, they immediately thought of Lake Linganore. I had never been, but always welcome the opportunity to shoot somewhere new. They have this awesome lake and beach in their neighborhood and it was perfect! Ashley worried that there wouldn’t be enough spots to work with, but not the case at all. We even found bamboo! :)
