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.

A vintage corvette, cherry blossoms, adorable pups and the Shore’s best ice cream.   Lindsey & Donnie’s engagement session was easy, relaxed and full of thoughtful details on a perfect Spring day.  I can’t wait to see what Kari Rider Events designs for their September wedding in Easton, Maryland.
