Mary Catherine & Eric | Engaged

How sweet are Mary Catherine and Eric?! 

They have this kind, comfortable, easy-going way about them which was a dream to photograph.  I truly enjoyed their romantic, garden engagement session at the beautiful Cylburn Arboretum, in Baltimore.  

I am so excited for their big day coming up this weekend at Antrim 1844 in Taneytown, MD----- can't wait :)

Jen and Jon | Married!

What an honor and pleasure to photograph Jen and Jon's heartfelt, stunning, backyard wedding.  As soon as Jen and Jon told me about their vision for their wedding photography I knew we were a perfect match.  I was so excited by their idea of walking through downtown Silver Spring and taking bride and groom portraits through a number of landmarks, each location being where memorable parts of their story developed.  I loved the ample time I had to focus on their couples portraits and to see their joy in literally walking down memory lane.  Their love was so full of laugher, joy, and and what caught my attention the most was their friendship. It meant the world to me to be a part of their big day.

Taylor & John | Engaged

Taylor & John | Engaged

John and Taylor's downtown frederick engagement session along the beautiful newly renovated Carroll Creek Canal reminded me how much wonder and charm there is right here in Frederick, MD.  I am so excited for their up coming August wedding at the stunning Stone Manor Country Club.  What a great idea that Taylor had her make up trail with Heather Rea Style Studio the day of her engagement session. I couldn't be more excited about their wedding, congrats Taylor and John! 

Lisa + Rob | Engagement

Take a peak at Rob and Lisa's beautiful engagement session AND 3 great reasons so do an engagement session before the big day! 

Matt + Meghan | Wedding

              Meghan and Matt's elegant, sophisticated classic DC wedding was simply breath-taking.  The wedding was held at the beautiful Oxen Hill Manor, in Maryland overlooking the National Harbor.  The wedding was themed with lovely whites, blues and purples and their wedding details all tied in together so well, and it was more then a joy to be the wedding photographer

Break Free and Dance

I am excited to share Lexie Thrash’s custom energy filled Frederick dance portait session. 

Like many of my sessions Lexie and I started out with a cup of coffee and I asked her about her life, her dancing, and what it is she wanted to express in her portraits.  As she got ready in my office I saw a light in her as she talked about her zeal for dance. Working with Lexie on her Frederick, Maryland, modern dance shoot reminded me of what it is like to stand on that edge right before you break free…

Arizona Sunshine: Janeth & Jermaine

I am so grateful that I got to meet and photograph this kindhearted, seriously fashionable, and sweet couple. It was during their wonderful engagement session that I realized for the first time that this was my element; this was what I was in love with – photographing true love.  I just sigh as I look back through their collection and feel the effortless love that shines through. Thank you Janeth and Jermaine, I will never for
