Fall Engagement Session with Kristan and Tyler | Maryland Wedding Photographer

All of this frigid January weather with its snowstorms and bitter cold spurts makes me wish we were still in the season of corn mazes, pumpkin patches, and drinking warm apple cider in cozy sweaters. Kristan and Tyler's engagement session at the Baltimore County Agricultural Center seemed like the perfect shoot to feature on the blog for those of you who want to daydream about fall, and possibly pick up some of your own ideas about what you might want for your engagement photos!

Emily and Matt's wedding at the Baltimore Museum of Art was sophisticated and classic, from Emily's stunning Sareh Nouri gown to the ornate stone steps of their venue. Their wedding was the perfect black tie affair, complete with a band and even a live painter painting the reception throughout the night! Having a live painter paint during the reception was such a unique way of capturing the night and paired perfectly with the art museum venue.

Behind the Scenes | 2017 Wrap-up | Baltimore Wedding Photographer

Well, here we are. The end of another amazing year in business! I still feel like I need to pinch myself on the regular to make sure that this isn't a dream! Working with awesome couples, being  a part of amazing weddings, and everything that goes along with this is seriously a dream come true.

This year I actually have enough behind the scenes photos to write one of these super fun posts! I always look forward to my photogra-friends posting theirs- so here's mine! You'll see my belly grow throughout the season. You'll see variations of my famous messy bun. You'll see my love affair with my Holdfast Moneymaker. You'll definitely see me asking a group of groomsmen to empty their pockets for photos and what happened because of that! You'll see me helping grandma, fixing a broken bustle, hanging with livestock, wrangling children... you name it!

So grab a chair, a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, and get comfy! Photo overload coming your way in 3.... 2.... 1....

Leslie and Dan | Pond View Farm Wedding | Maryland Wedding Photographer

I can't get enough of the contrast between purple wedding accents and the lush greenery of a rustic outdoor venue. Leslie and Dan's wedding at Pond View Farm in White Hall, Maryland, was full of vibrant purples and green backdrops. It was the perfect summer day with just the right temperature, especially for August. I loved shooting every minute of it!

Engagement Session on the NCR Trail with Jon and Stephanie | Maryland Wedding Photographer

Stephanie and Jon are such an adventure-loving couple. They love being outdoors so much that for one of their first dates, they rode bikes on the NCR trail. Because of their history with the NCR trail, Stephanie and Jon decided to shoot their engagement photos there! We had a blast adventuring on the trail and capturing some amazing shots of Stephanie and Jon with their adorable Boston Terrier Ginny during the sunny fall afternoon.

Travis is such a big part of my life (pun intended) that I thought I really ought to share a little more about him! Travis came to us almost four years ago in December. I have ALWAYS been a dog person and have had dogs literally my entire life. I've had english bulldogs, labs, and mutts, but Travis is my first mastiff! And let me tell you, I am completely infatuated with him!

Caitlyn and Shaun | Fall Engagement Session | Maryland Wedding

Just in time for Halloween, it's finally starting to feel like fall in Maryland! I've been incredibly busy with doubleheader wedding weekends, attending the AKP retreat in Baltimore, and preparing for the newest member of our little family, but I'm so excited for spending my in-between moments indulging in all things fall - I'm talking pumpkin spice, hot apple ciders, snuggling by the fireplace...enjoying the sweater weather season while I can.

Casey and Nate | Cork Factory Hotel Wedding | Maryland Wedding Photographer

Casey and Nate tied the knot at one of my new favorite venues in Lancaster, the Cork Factory Hotel! Lancaster is quickly becoming a popular area for brides looking for rustic wedding venues. This place had everything - exposed brick, aged wood, and a completely open space with vaulted ceilings for their beautiful ceremony and reception. The little details of the wedding were perfect for the space, from the hanging flowers and chandeliers to the ornate, oversized Edison light bulbs incorporated into the decor. Everywhere you looked, Casey and Nate's wedding was gorgeous!

A Open Letter to Chip and Joanna Gaines | Maryland Wedding Photographer

I admire the ambition you both have towards following your dreams. An idea will pop into your heads and if it feels right, you make the next move. Whatever obstacles are in your way, you always overcome them with grace. I think everyone can learn from your positivity and determination. That houseboat that didn't float, that farm that you waited and waited for, and those silos that didn't look like much from the outside, but you had vision and now it's more than you ever could have imagined. You've created a brand, a lifestyle, and you've set an example that if you put your mind to it and stay true to yourselves, you can accomplish anything you dream up.

Brooke and Morgan Shoot With Their Dogs | Maryland Family Photographer

I don't think it could get any cuter than this shoot for sisters Brooke and Morgan and their dogs Scarlet, Gus and Milo! I've known Brooke and Morgan for years while their dad and I were volunteer firefighters together. Brooke and I also both wore the Ms. Fire Prevention crown! I even owe the adoption of our dog, Travis, to Brooke. Brooke is a Virginia Tech grad who works in the agricultural field and Morgan is a women's soccer coach at Loyola. I was over the moon when they reached out to take some photos with their adorable pups!

Jess and Mike Engagement Session in Fells Point | Maryland Wedding Photographer

Fells Point in Baltimore is such a dynamic and exciting place to shoot engagement sessions. There are cobblestone and worn brick, a picturesque waterfront, and iconic landmarks like the Knoll Lighthouse. Jess, Mike and I took advantage of a gorgeous sunny spring day and explored Fells Point to find the perfect shots for their engagement session! As we were shooting, passers-by cheered them on and talked about how adorable they and their happy and energetic golden retriever pup Bailey were. The three of them looked like a perfect little family!
