Kelley & Tom

Fall 2016 – Maryland Wedding

Kelley and Tom, you two are amazing!! From an engagement shoot that included your sweet pup ( laughter and sneezing too) to an incredible September wedding- I am just so honored to have spent this time with you both and thank you tremendously. You two have the most positive energy  and your wedding day was unbelievably fun, picturesque and welcoming. Such love was in the room- and wow- as Kelley walked down the aisle, arm and arm with her lovely father, Tom’s reaction, was just astounding….

After some fun on the docks, the night welcomed all K and T’s awesome friends and family into a warmly lit room where Kelleys father gave a truly endearing, thoughtful & heartfelt speech. K’s lovely sister added to the magic with a poignant toast, and Toms brother of course had the crowd roaring with his childhood memory! Followed by Mr.McCord’s prayer, a lovely masterful tradition, guests ate yummy food at tables adorned with awesome succulents and antiqued vessels. And then of course the dancing- such epic fun!! So many great moments by the fire, family hanging out time, cheerleading performances recorded on video, haha it was just so fun !!  K and T, I cannot thank you enough for welcoming me into your day, and I just loved every minute of it.

Therese & Eric

Fall 2016 – Maryland Wedding

Therese and Eric are so much fun! I had a blast spending time with this pair throughout the year. From a very sweet engagement session by their home in Charm City- to an epic wedding ceremony and party to follow at Bulle Rock, in Havre De Grace… I could not be more thankful to have been invited along to take some snaps of their magic!

T & E are so charming, inviting, giving, warm, super fun, and they can both laugh and DANCE like crazy- such a great reception – love flowing through the air- and what awesome friendships they have with the sweetest people, and such kind family  too  and cheers to everyone for traveling great distances)!

I could not be more thankful for the honor of spending time with these two, and all of their guests- truly thank you! Here are just a few pics from Therese and Eric’s wedding day and I look forward to posting more soon.

Congrats Therese and Eric! XOXO

Bronwyn & Chris

Summer 2016 – Maryland Wedding

Bronwyn and Chris are a magical couple. I am in awe of their warmth and welcoming spirit.  From a close family friend officiating, to vows being shared under a pair of picturesque trees at the family-run Pond View Farm, to Bronwyn and her fathers walk down the aisle.

Their wedding welcomed so many friends and family- such a magnetic atmosphere, with loved ones traveling from across the ocean… The night ended in a beautiful barn aglow in amber light- with the sound of Michael Jackson pouring through the speakers, an insanely packed dance floor pulsating and King of the North being chanted wildly!

I just am sharing a few slivers for now as there were so many moments to this day… the pair of trees that bend to one another, the way Bronwyn’s best friends looked at her when they saw her dressed, Chris’ smile when he greeted Bronwyn’s fathers hand….so much more to come….so many thanks to you both!

Joan & John

Summer 2016 – Maryland Wedding

I want to thank this kind couple, Joan and John, and their amazing family ever so much for allowing me to photograph with them on their wedding day-  a hot/steamy/awesome early August Maryland afternoon, filled with such emotional, candid speeches, poetic glances and an adventure to the waterfront.

The Bride, looking absolutely radiant and joined by her daughter, granddaughter and mother was finishing the final touches on her wardrobe when I met her.  John was heading off to the church with his brother to await her arrival. It was the early afternoon when they walked arm and arm down the aisle, welcomed by friends and family from near and far into an intimate ceremony, sealed by a communion, a kiss and many cheers.

After John and Joan’s celebration, we took a walk out to the water to shoot a few photographs. I was struck by their kindness and ease with one another. It felt ever poignant to be at the waters calm edge- the two hand in hand, beaming and subtle – a new tide.

J & J then ventured into their Havre De Grace reception at the Decoy Museum. Greeted by an enthusiastic roar from the crowd, truly kind speeches and prayer followed (John your brother is lovely, and almost began a riot when talking about football, and Joan, your son and daughter are amazing- I felt so misty eyed!!)…laughter, stories, picture sharing, and partying ensued, and as always the night ended too soon. I wish you so much LOVE and congratulations, and thank you Joan and John.

Here are just a few pics below, looking forward to sharing more soon!
