Tim & Mary Ellen {Grey Rock Mansion in Pikesville, MD)

Tim and Mary Ellen tied the knot last weekend at the beautiful Grey Rock Mansion in Pikesville, MD. Their wedding was a celebration full of joy and love. Mary Ellen was the ultimate DIY bride and handmade all of the decor! She even made the bridesmaids bouquet and her bouquet. Amazing! Their initials spell out TiME (Tim & Mary Ellen) so the theme was clocks and time. So creative!

Downtown Annapolis was the perfect place for Rob and Alyson's engagement session. They recently bought a house in the area and have a sailboat that they take out in the summer! We walked around downtown and even took some pictures on their boat. It was amazing!

John and Elizabeth are married!! These two tied the knot at Pier 5 Hotel in downtown Baltimore. They were able to share a First Look and take some portraits outside before the rain started! Elizabeths nephew was the ring bearer and he did such a good job. And then Elizabeth and John when through the sword arch for their exit!

day with their friends and family there to celebrate. It was supposed to rain but instead there was a beautiful sunset! It was scorching hot, but nothing stood in the way of the happiness these two had for each other in becoming husband and wife.

CrossFit + Pregnancy

CrossFit + Pregnancy

I had my 6 week postpartum check up with my OBGYN yesterday and I am officially cleared to workout again! I have been itching to workout since giving birth because it is a big stress reliever for me so getting the clear was exciting. Before I was pregnant, I had a regular routine of doing CrossFit at Nevermore a few times a week.

Payton's Newborn Session {Emily Gerald Photography}

It is always strange for us to be on the other side of the camera, but we have gotten used to it after being together for over seven years! I knew after we found out we were pregnant that Emily Gerald would be the perfect person to shoot our newborn session. She is a very talented baby + birth photographer based in Virginia and she is just the sweetest!

Why We Love the First Look on the Wedding Day

Why We Love the First Look on the Wedding Day

A lot of you have probably heard of the "First Look" on the wedding day. It has become more popular over the years for a lot of reasons! The First Look is when you choose to see each other on the wedding day before you walk down the aisle.

Maternity Milk Bath Shoot {Towson, MD}

Maternity Milk Bath Shoot {Towson, MD}

The past few weeks I have gone into full out "nesting" waiting for baby P to arrive in hopefully under 3 weeks! While we are waiting, I thought it would be fun to do a milk bath maternity session a few weeks before I was due since my belly would be very large. My good friend Hannah told me she would take the pictures and I was so excited!

Time is flying! I can't believe in less than 6 weeks we will be holding our baby girl. Last weekend, my mom and sister-in-law threw me a sweet baby shower to celebrate baby P! Kristy is one of the most creative people I know and she hand-made all of the decorations for the shower. 

Best of 2016 | Weddings

Best of 2016 | Weddings

What an amazing year it has been! Traveling up north to Cape Cod and also down south to South Carolina, we covered many states in the weddings we shot this year. We also experienced windy weddings, several rainy day weddings, and perfect autumn fall weddings! It was the perfect mix.

Behind the Scenes 2016!

Behind the Scenes 2016!

I look forward to post this blog every year! Kevin does a great job of taking behind the scenes pictures during the wedding day. It is cool to see the environment you are in when shooting and then the final picture next to it! In 2016 we decided to move from shooting 20+ weddings to capping at 15. This was the best decision we made for our business and family because we were able to really focus on each couple and still have time for our marriage throughout the year.

Eeek!! I am so excited about these images. My talented friend Hannah Leigh Photography took our maternity photos and they are amazing! I am so thankful for our little photography network and all of the friendships that have blossomed out of meeting up together. We wanted to do a few pictures at our house with Sadie in cozy outfits before heading over to Cromwell Valley Park!
