Elizabeth & Curt – Running Hare Vineyard Wedding Photographer



The first thing most people notice when they look at Elizabeth and Curt is their serious height difference. And being so good-natured, they took a lot of gentle teasing about it during the toasts and throughout their wedding day. But when I looked at them, beaming and happy, it wasn’t the only thing I saw. I saw the way Curt grins when he looks at Elizabeth, and I saw how she is at ease and totally herself in his presence. I saw joy in their companionship and a clear, strong bond. And that speaks volumes, not inches.

Marisa & Adam – Baltimore Museum of Industry Wedding



From start to finish, this day was pure fun. I loved that Marisa and Adam wanted to embrace the quirky coolness of the Baltimore Museum of Industry and do most of their photos inside, because it challenged me to shoot some truly unique images. (Plus it was super windy outside and nobody wants a crazy windblown look.) The bridal party kept me laughing with their antics, and let’s not forget the reception – you know it’s a good wedding when there’s an epic pants rip!

Wendy & Richard – Linganore Winery Wedding Photography



Wendy and Richard’s vision for a sunny and warm wedding day at Linganore Winecellars was a little crushed when the weather turned up cold and rainy all day long. But they didn’t let it get them down, and instead embraced whatever ideas I had for making pretty pictures, including using every patio and covered area on site. Haha. But seriously, we all had such a great time and I loved seeing their smiles and optimism! As always, Bobby Dawson of ID Pro DJ kept the dance floor full and the party hopping (not that this crowd needed any encouragement!)

Becky & Ryan – Belvedere Baltimore Wedding Photography



Becky and Ryan brought great energy to their wedding day, and I loved the relaxed time we had doing their portraits! Everyone was awesomely calm and easy-going and I kept thinking, “what a great group of people” pretty much every few minutes. But of course I expected nothing less – I photographed Becky’s cousin’s wedding a couple years ago, and her brother’s wedding not too long before that! I am always so honored to be invited back by a family, especially one as lovely as Becky’s.

Ashley & Jeff – Myrtle Beach South Carolina Wedding Photography



Ashley and Jeff’s wedding at the Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach was the perfect start to my wedding season. Always fun to kick it off with a destination weekend! :) Though breezy and chilly conditions made us bundle up all weekend, we were rewarded with a lovely sky and sunset on the wedding day! Ashley and Jeff personalized everything with little touches for their guests, including some fun Harry Potter details.

Sarah & Jon – Mt Washington Mill Dye House Baltimore Wedding Photography



I’ve been looking forward to Sarah and Jon’s wedding for a while! Not only because their venue (Mt. Washington Mill Dye House) is awesome and it was my first time there, but also because of Sarah’s story and the deep love I know she and Jon share. We had fun playing around with red and green smoke bombs across the street, hollering at their adorable pug, and of course setting up some epic night shots.

Lizett & Matthew – Kenwood Country Club Bethesda Wedding Photography



Lizett has one of the biggest happiest smiles I’ve ever seen, and Matt can’t help but smile back when he looks at her. (Just at her though, not so much at me. Haha.) They are really cute together, and although it was freeeeezing the day of their wedding, we braved some neat photos with the old car and fun night shots until I couldn’t feel my fingers any longer. Worth it!

Lisa & Dan – Sandals Negril Jamaica Destination Wedding Photography



I’ve been off the blogging scene for a little while now, because, life. And I have a few other incredible weddings I will definitely get around to posting because they are too good not to share. But in the meantime, take this warm and sunny Jamaica wedding to brighten up your winter day!

Lisa and Dan invited me out to be their destination wedding photographer after seeing the work I did at Lisa’s brother’s wedding in St. Lucia a few years ago. (Love this family – they totally have the right idea with the destination weddings.) It was so much fun to enjoy a few days in the sun, see everyone again, and make some new friends. The sand was clean, the water was clear, and the weather was awesome. (I’ll spare you my diatribe about the Jamaican mosquitoes.) Thanks for having me out, 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!
