I really, really, really wanted dry skies for them. After one curve ball, I didn’t want them to deal with […]

Featured on the blog today is Tara and Alex’s engagement session at Sherwood Gardens. I met Tara in 2014 at Casey and Jordan’s wedding.

The couple also brought […]

Christine and Keith were married on April 16th at one of the most beautiful churches on the east coast, St. Mary’s church in Annapolis. Waiting for the ceremony to start can feel like an eternity when you are the one walking down the aisle. So to help pass the time and settle the pre-ceremony nerves, Christine’s parents told […]

In February I took my annual winter escape south to spend time with my folks, who live a little over an hour north of Orlando. I needed a serious thawing and decided I would start my trip much farther south where flip-flop weather was a guarantee. I booked a one way flight for $43 and with my […]

Watching the snow fall today got me thinking about Allison and Sean’s beautiful winter wedding. They were married a couple years ago at the Naval Academy Chapel during a blizzard. Nearly 24 inches of snow accumulated in 24 hours, but just about everyone made it to the chapel and their venue the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club. I was shooting […]
