These two tug at my heart-strings.  They are the sweetest couple and so completely, head over heels in love it.  We spent a perfect, Saturday morning spreading that love around downtown Annapolis.  Sunday is the big day and I cannot wait to capture their commitment, joy and all their family and friends gathered to celebrate.

St. Matthews Cathedral & Iron Gate Wedding

St. Matthew’s Cathedral and Iron Gate brunch wedding. What started as casual date-night conversation over dinner under the wisteria canopy and beside the warm fire pits at Iron Gate turned into an idyllic wedding at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle.

This beautiful, bright, sweet girl graduates today.  I was under Caroline’s spell 2 minutes into our shoot.  She has a quiet charm and thoughtful look in her eye that immediately puts you at ease and makes you want to gather her up in your arms with a great big hug.  I’m so thankful I had this opportunity to document […]

I love working with dads and their kids for the women in their life.  I especially love it when they’re as cool and fun as these three.  If you’ve ever had the chance to visit Rise Up Coffee, you’ve no doubt seen Noah at the roaster making everything within a block smell like heaven.  Since […]

Pretty in pink.  A favorite movie of this 80’s child but also what kept running through my head when Katelyn stepped out in her senior prom dress for her session at The River House.  We grabbed a few casual photos before hand that showed off her softer side.  Then on to a golden, sunlit field  where we […]

This weekend I had the privilege of photographing CASA’s annual fundraiser at the beautiful Hemmersley Farm.  If you’re unfamiliar with CASA, please take a minute to visit their website to learn about this organization that does so much for neglected and abused children.   With Preakness as inspiration for this year’s theme, there were plenty of beautiful hats […]

  I’ve been holding onto these until Bekah returned from her semester in Africa not knowing they would serve as pre-engagement photos!  Brandon proposed the moment she landed!  We’re so over joyed for them.  These images were shot on what was probably the coldest day of the longest winter.  We were frozen through. Popsicles were […]

Everything. Absolutely everything was perfect for Kelly & Chris’s wedding day at Sunset Crest Manor in Chantilly, VA.  I can’t wait to share more.  It’s been so wonderful watching their love bloom since meeting at the Trinity Forum Academy and an honor to be there to capture the celebration with their closest family and friends.

KELLY + CHRIS!  The big day has finally arrived.  Tomorrow, everyone they love and who loves them will gather together to witness their vows for a lifetime of joy and commitment.  To celebrate love and the best that these two wonderful people bring out in each other.  To share in the anticipation and excitement for the […]

A 1700’s country estate for the backdrop, a son home from boarding school, Grandmother visiting from Virginia, sunset on a beautiful day, lots of good ole belly laughs and love filled smiles.  It was the perfect way to kick off the spring portrait season.  A big hug to the Spurry family for being so wonderful to work […]

This weekend we celebrated the 40th birthday of our friend, Brooke.  A ladies only, and fun dinner at Level in Annapolis on Saturday then her husband surprised her with a spa day at The Inn At Perry Cabin.  I wish I had  taken a couple of photos, because you’d never know this gorgeous and always […]

Pink, Flowers and Fashion -- a Bridal Shower in Maryland

Capturing Christa’s bridal shower was such a joy. She is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. I love when there’s an opportunity to meet family and friends of the couple prior to the wedding day. In addition to being really helpful, it makes the big day even more fun for us.
