Ahh I am so excited to share this post with you!! A few months in the making and finally my brother Luke and future sister Rachel are engaged! Luke planned the perfect proposal for Rachel with a romantic sunset sail, a heartfelt letter, and a Mrs. box with a stunning ring inside.
Kyle and Kaitlyn tied the knot overlooking the water at Herrington on the Bay on a gorgeous fall day. Their adorable pup Norman wore a bowtie and cufflinks around his paws as he walked down the aisle! Kyle and Kaitlyn have a beautiful love for one another that is selfless and full of joy. It was a fabulous celebration!
Shawn and Elise are married!! It was a beautiful fall day at Chanteclaire Farm as these two tied the knot overlooking the lake. They shared a tearful First Look before the ceremony and were full of joy the entire day. Both Shawn and Elise are also big WVU fans so they both wore stylish socks for the wedding. It was adorable! Their cute pup Cole was also at the wedding for a few pictures. He had a bandana around his neck that said, “My humans are getting married.”. So cute!
Scott and Taylor got engaged this summer and are getting married in November at the Elkridge Country Club! We started their engagement session at the Hampton National Historic Site in Towson and finished the session at their home. It was a gorgeous evening with a beautiful golden hour and lots of laughs. These two are adorable and it was a blast taking photos of them!
Lloyd and Madeline said, “I do” as the sun was setting at Wye RIver Conference Center in Queenstown, Maryland. Before the ceremony, they shared a beautiful first look and exchanged personal vows with one another. There were happy tears and many laughs! The details were extraordinary with brushed gold flatware, rose wine glasses, and greenery designed by Steelcut Flower Co..
Sometimes I blog personal posts just to have an online journal of our trips. But I know some of you like to see our fam together so that is why I am sharing! We had a blast in Maine this year, especially because it was our first time taking the girls. I grew up going to my great grandfather’s cabin in South Addison, ME since I was a little girl. And my dad went for months in the summer when he was little as well. It is also a very special place for me because it is where Kevin proposed! It was so fun to take Payton the spot where Kevin asked me to marry him 6 years ago.
Josh and Hannah are finally married! It was a wonderful celebration at St. Moses Church with their friends and family in attendance. Josh, his brothers, and dad performed a beautiful worship song together which was very special. There were many tears of joy! Josh and Hannah danced the night away at The Accelerator Space under the hanging lights and everyone had a blast celebrating the newlyweds.
Engagement shoots are a great way to get to know your photographer and learn how to be more comfortable in front of the camera. William and Jennifer are naturals and are so in love with each other. We did their engagement session at Hayfields Country Club in Cockeysville where their wedding will be this fall. It was a gorgeous golden hour and we had so much fun taking the golf cart to the willow tree, by the pond, and all around the golf course!
What a trip! Our little family takes an annual beach trip every summer and it is always one of the highlights of my year. We like going to a different Airbnb every year to explore new places and this year we chose Emerald Isle in North Carolina. It was a long drive but completely worth it! A lot of people asked me for tips for taking babies to the beach so I wanted to share a few things that were helpful to bring and do while we were there!
Cameron and Kelsey are married!! It was a romantic and beautiful summer afternoon as these two said, “I do” under the weeping willow trees at Pond View Farm. Cameron and Kelsey shared a sweet First Look and were full of joy when we were taking their portraits. The slate blue bridesmaid dresses and poppy flowers in the bouquet made for simple and classic details. Kelsey’s mom also hand-cut all of the circular menus on the plates and designed the craft beer sign! It was an amazing day!
This was a wedding for the books! Jessica and Leo tied the knot at the beautiful William Paca House in downtown Annapolis on a warm summer day. First they shared a First Look at the statehouse before meeting their bridal party at the venue. The entire day Leo and Jessica were laughing with each other and had the best day becoming husband and wife. They were a joy to photograph!
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!
