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!

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.

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!

Ashley & Mark – Piney Branch Golf Club Maryland Wedding Photography



Ashley & Mark had the absolute best attitudes about their rainy day wedding. I loved that they were down for all my ideas, including walking across the very wet grass to this awesome grove of trees. It was a lovely day, and the many tears and happiness made it even more beautiful. And talk about an epic dance party!

Becky & Eric – Silver Swan Wedding Photography



Becky and Eric had a super sweet wedding at the beautiful Silver Swan Bayside. It was never quite sunny, but it never rained either! And then right at sunset the sky got crazy cool and even though I had plenty of pictures, I made Becky and Eric come out for one last time and was so glad that I did. :)
