This was an engagement party for the books! The chic country farm theme was perfectly designed by Elle Ellinghaus Designs and her team. The best part of the evening was the amazing entertainment concert with a performance by the Osborne Brothers! The dogs loved running around and the kids had a blast with the popcorn ferris wheel and cotton candy bar.
Maddy and Lloyd, I hate to say it, but your pup Melvin was the star of the show in your engagement session! We were watching the forecast all week for this session and thankfully the rain decided to stay away. We walked around Canton near the water and Melvin was all smiles. After taking pictures downtown, we finished the session at Sherwood Gardens! Even though all the tulips had finished blooming, the flower bushes were still showing off their beautiful colors.
Steven and Gina got engaged last summer and they are getting married in 2020! They love visiting downtown Annapolis so it was the perfect location for their engagement session. After we took some photos downtown, we went to Quiet Waters Park to take a few pictures with their pups. They are adorable!
Chris and Lindy are MARRIED!! The forecast was calling for rain and they were nervous they would have to have the ceremony inside, but it decided to clear up right before Lindy walked down the aisle! When these two are together they are in their own little world and it is beautiful to watch. They had a morning wedding which meant it was only fitting to have brunch for lunch! The custom omelet and pancake/waffle bar was delicious. It was an amazing wedding!
Angel and Matty are MARRIED! Our first wedding of the year and it was a unique and beautiful day. Matty and Angel tied the knot and celebrated with friends and family on a gorgeous April day at the 2640 Space in Baltimore. Both of their dogs were also included in the celebration! The two pups walked down the aisle in adorable little dresses. They were so excited to see their humans become a family!
Josh and Hannah are getting married!! It felt like it was yesterday that I shot his brother Caleb’s wedding and Josh and Hannah were dating. These two love spending time outdoors together so Patapsco Valley State Park was the perfect location for their engagement session. It was a gorgeous day and a beautiful session.
There is so much love and joy between these two. While they were dating the were long distance and would cross the bridge to visit each other. This made Sandy Point State Park the perfect spot for their engagement session! It was a little chilly, but they didn’t care. They are so happy to be together and can’t wait to get married!
I still can’t believe Payton will be TWO this week! She has a few different TV shows she likes, but recently she has loved Sesame Street. So I thought it would be fun to throw her an Elmo birthday party! Rachel and I had fun pinning lots of ideas and creating our favorites. There is nothing like using cheap materials to make something adorable! As the weeks went by and more decorations for the party were added to the kitchen table, Payton would see them and say, “Elmo birthday!” It was so cute.
The last of our 2018 favorites! Each of these weddings were very different from each other but all incredible in their own way. I love seeing the way each of the couples display their style through their wedding details, colors, and decor! This is just the beginning of their love stories, and it was an honor to capture each one. It was also wonderful to work with each of their families! We continue to add new friends to our AGP couples each year and it makes our job such a blessing.
This was such a fun session! You may remember Julie from the Anniversary session I shot for her and Jason a few years ago or you may know her from her famous food + travel blog! Julie is the star behind Table for Two, and her recipes are AMAZING! She also has a cookbook called Dinner for Two that is a kitchen staple.
Jo loves the winter so she was excited to do her engagement session with Chris in December! However, it was 32 degrees and freezing outside the day we did their photos. But they were naturals behind the camera even in the cold. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next November! Chris and Joe have such a sweet relationship and the joy between them couldn’t be more evident.
This is always such a fun post to put together! I love looking back over the year and re-living all the sweet moments at each wedding through the images. I was pregnant this entire wedding season which made things interesting! As my belly grew each month, guests loved to make comments and give advice at each wedding. It was always entertaining!
This was my first photo session since having Hallie and it was the most beautiful fall day! Christian and Chelsea enjoy visiting Quiet Waters Park so it was the perfect spot for their engagement session. Chelsea’s parents also got married at the cute gazebo overlooking the water that you will see in the photos. It was so sweet!
I can’t believe Hallie has been with us for almost a month now! Time is going very slow, but also quickly at the same time. Kevin had his first full week back at work last week and I feel like I am finally settling into a bit of a routine with the girls at home. I am so thankful it is the off-season so that I can spend my days bonding with Payton and Hallie!
