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! :)

Lily & Craig – Baltimore Engagement Photography



Lily and Craig picked the coldest and windiest day of the year for their engagement shoot. But it’s when conditions are terrible but smiles abound anyway that I know they are a good match! I loved their positive attitudes and welcoming spirits. I really felt like I’ve known them for a long time. Plus Criag and Lily are hilarious… for example, Lily invented a hashtag for our time together – #crailmily. So catchy, right? It will probably be trending soon. ;-) 2017-02-19_0011

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

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!

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!

Lizett & Matt – Montogomery County Engagement Photography



Lizett’s smile and bubbly personality are contagious, and Matt is her perfect even-keeled counterpart. I had a great time walking around with these guys and their adorable dog Lucky!

Ashleigh & Brian – Potomac River Engagement Shoot



Brian warned me to wear sturdy shoes because there was a “little bit of hiking” involved… ha! More like rock climbing. Okay, I’m kind of exaggerating here, but you try crossing streams and rock scrambling with all your camera gear… I was sore the next day! But seriously, one of my favorite parts of being a photographer is getting to see everyone’s hidden gems around the area. I would have never known about this place without Brian taking us there but it was stunningly beautiful. This was such a fun way to spend a gorgeous morning, and Ashleigh and Brian were so easy to talk to, even as I was still waking up. :) Ashleigh is super talented and owns a custom invitation and stationery business, so make sure to check it out. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with for her epic New Year’s Eve wedding. (But no pressure! Haha.)

Samy & Nik – Lincoln Memorial Washington DC Photography



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!

Wendy & Richard – Baltimore Engagement Photography



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.

Becky & Eric – Historic Ellicott City Maryland Engagement Photography



Our original plan for Becky and Eric’s session was to meet at Patapsco, but it was such a lovely Sunday afternoon I think everyone else had the same idea! The park was actually closed because of all the people, so we quickly made a plan b and drove to Historic Ellicott City instead. And it was perfect. I love how you can get right down to the river there and everything was so nice and quiet and serene.
