St. Matthew’s Cathedral and Iron Gate brunch wedding.

Emily Michael and Adam Buckalew, best known as Buck, met as neighbors near Union Station and […]
It’s wedding weekend for Charlotte and Ryan and we’re sharing some our favorite photos from their fall engagement session at the Aspen Institute Wye River Conference Center. The tree lined drive was on parade with vibrant shades of Autumn and we took full advantage of every golden leaf. We’re often asked if pets are welcome […]
The year passed by so quickly. It seems like we were just at this gorgeous property in Easton shooting Arden and Zak’s engagement session. Talbot County is full of so many hidden gems and this was the perfect setting for these two playful lovebirds. Their Eastern Shore wedding is this weekend and we’re so excited […]
Amanda and Jack are getting married this weekend and our family couldn’t be happier for them. We were Amanda’s host family while she was a fellow at the Trinity Fellows Academy. She holds a very special place in our hearts and we adore Jack. So it was extra special to photograph them for their engagement […]

The Eastern Shore is a vacation destination for so many in the surrounding areas of Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York City. So when I asked Jenny to help me shoot an engagement session for a couple visiting Easton for a few days, there was no suspicion. We got together a few minutes early and walked to the Historical […]
On a cold January day like today, Barb and her sailor, Nick, flew in from Charleston for their engagement session on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. There were Canadian geese, a spectacular sunset and a 19th century manor house that is the Inn at Perry Cabin . Despite our numb toes and fingers from the cold, St. […]
It doesn’t get much better on a cold, snow covered day than having George & Martha’s house all to yourselves to roam about and photograph a couple who makes you laugh through frozen fingertips and toes. Their fur babies got almost as much time in front of the lens and nearly stole the show with […]
