The marina in St. Michael’s was the perfect backdrop for Megan & Brandon’s December engagement session.  We laughed through the frigid temperatures and discovered Brandon’s hidden talents as fierce fashion model.  Cannot believe their wedding is here already!  Cheers to a wedding day filled with laughter and maybe a few happy tears.  xo

January, record breaking temperatures and unbearable wind chills.  That’s what Becky & Joe braved for their engagement session at the Westin in downtown Annapolis.  Despite the cold, my heart was warmed by witnessing Joe’s inexpressibly sweet tenderness and affection for Becky.  She radiates as a woman who’s “found the one whom her soul loves’.  I cannot wait to see […]

This weekend these two remarkable people are tying the knot and I’m the lucky girl who gets to document the love, joy well wishes of their family and friends.  When Darian emailed to tell me he was engaged, I thought “what a lucky girl”, but after meeting Holly I knew he was the lucky one. […]
