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 […]

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.

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

We have some of the best sunsets here on the Eastern Shore.  Throw in a perfect Autumn day, a fun couple in love and a few bales of hay, you the makings of ballad straight out of Nashville.  Congratulations Katie & Robbie!

Bekah and Brandon were home on the Eastern Shore for a school break so we took full advantage of a beautiful Autumn day to squeeze in their engagement session.  I love photographing these two.  They make it so easy and that laugh of Bekah’s is so infectious it lights up my lens.  I cannot wait for their […]

It’s wedding week for Grace & Taylor!  Cannot wait to see these two say ‘I do”!  We were able to sneak in an engagement shoot just in time.  Throw in some puppy kisses from their adorable blood hound, a glistening sunset, the backdrop of Londonderry’s manor house and we have the perfect Autumn day.

There two really are the sweetest pair.  They were guests at a wedding I shot a couple of years ago.  I remember so clearly, setting up some bridal party shots when I turned and saw them in an embrace and snapped a couple of frames.  It was tender and playful and I’m the lucky photographer who gets […]
