Kent Manor Inn Wedding Photos | Kent Island Maryland Photographer | Kathleen and Eric

Ever since their early morning engagement photo session in downtown Annapolis, I really looked forward to working again with Kathleen, Eric, and their dog Clara for their wedding at Kent Manor Inn. They were a really nice and friendly bunch! Too bad Clara wouldn’t be joining the couple for their big day though. 🙂

The Venue: Kent Manor Inn

The couple were set on Kent Manor Inn because of its historic charm and scenic location on the water.  They also felt that the Thompson Dining Room provided the perfect setting for their intimate wedding.

Kent Manor Inn Wedding Photos | Kent Island Maryland Photographer | Jessica and Dan

Jessica and Dan’s engagement photo session at the Baltimore Rowing Club was one of the most unforgettable experience I ever had for any photo session I’ve ever done. It sure was like one-of-a-kind adventure I don’t think I would experience again, at least not in the near future. I would love to have the chance to do it again, of course! Nonetheless, after the fun we had during the pre-wedding session, I couldn’t wait to photograph their wedding at The Historic Kent Manor Inn. 🙂

The Venue: Kent Manor Inn

The couple chose Kent Manor Inn as their wedding venue for its natural beauty and simple elegance. Moreover, the management and staff made everything from the ceremony to the reception easy to plan with little stress!

Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore Wedding Photos | Baltimore Maryland Photographer | Katie and Scott

After our first meeting, I immediately knew that Katie and Scott are awesome couple. They’re both cool and very nice to work with especially during their Patterson Park Baltimore engagement photo session, so I couldn’t wait to meet them again at their wedding at Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore. I was also thrilled because it would be my first time to photograph a wedding at the venue.

The Venue: Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore

Katie and Scott were looking for a venue that was unique to Baltimore, and once they saw the Cobalt room at the Four Seasons Hotel, they knew right away it was perfect. They were astonished with the incredible view and knew that the hotel accommodations and food would be first class.

Kent Manor Inn Wedding Photos | Kent Island Maryland Photographer | Christine and Dan

Christine and Dan met through her cousin, Josh, and his wife Angie, in October 2013. Josh and Dan were co-workers at the time. They first met at Josh and Angie’s house in La Plata, MD at a party the couple organized to meet their new dog, Wendy. They finally had their first date about a couple of months later after the holiday season.

Both Christine and Dan love Disney World, so they decided to go together. On Friday, August 28th, 2015, they visited the Magic Kingdom. When they arrived at the park, Dan stopped and asked her to have their picture taken in front of the castle. Christine, knowing Dan, was confused and said, “You don’t like getting your picture taken.” He then turned to her, got down on one knee, and asked, “Will you marry me?” Of course, she said, “Yes!” Later that evening they had dinner reservations at ‘Ohana’s Polynesian Restaurant where Christine’s parents and Dan’s parents were secretly waiting for them to arrive. Dan made all the arrangements for their families without Christine’s knowledge.

The Venue: Kent Manor Inn

The couple chose Kent Manor Inn as their wedding venue because Christine have lived by the water her entire life and Dan is in the Navy. As soon as Christine visited Kent Manor, she fell in love. She knew that’s the exact place she would want to marry her best friend, added with all the better coordinators to make their special day as smooth as it could be.

Baltimore Rowing Club Engagement Photos | Baltimore Maryland Photographer | Jessica and Dan

Dan and Jessica met in college while they were on the rowing team. They got to know each other over 5 am car trips to the boat house and 7 am breakfasts every morning for almost a year and became very close friends. Shortly after the rowing season ended, they started dating as it was a natural extension of their friendship, and have been inseparable ever since!

Fast forward to 5 years later, Dan planned this beautiful weekend trip to Chincoteague. It was a beautiful day when they got there. He rented a little boat, drove Jessica out across the water to Assateague Island, and brought them right up to the ponies. Suddenly Dan got down on one knee and asked Jessica the most important question of her life.

Now, almost 6 years after they’ve been together, they thought that the perfect place for their engagement shoot would be the place where they met and grew to love each other, the Baltimore Rowing Club.

Annapolis Engagement Photos | Annapolis Maryland Photographer | Kelly and Dave

It all started with an online wink, followed by many messages and a few phone calls. Their first date was to Edgewater Restaurant where the crab cakes were to die for. Since they hit it off and had so much fun, Kelly & Dave continued with drinks, pool, and a little dancing. That one date turned into many dates and they were practically inseparable. Dave also got along very well with Kelly’s daughter, Caitlin. They all moved in together in Annapolis.

The past Easter before a planned trip to see both families, Dave surprised Kelly with a stunning present in her Easter egg! After saying yes and slipping that most beautiful ring on her finger, they had a newfound excitement for visiting their families that day.

Between Dave’s love of history as well as their own history of date nights and their first home being in Annapolis, it was only natural that they wanted their engagement pictures in downtown Annapolis. Moreover, they also spent lots of time hiking, playing softball, ice skating, and kayaking at Quiet Waters Park. Therefore, we also went to the park afterward for their engagement photo session.

Patterson Park Engagement Photos | Baltimore Maryland Photographer | Katie and Scott

Katie and Scott first met in the Summer of 2012 and bonded over their love of emo rock music at the Virgin FreeFest music festival. After a few weeks of getting to know each other, Scott asked Katie out on their first date where they went to Annabel Lee Tavern, an Edgar Allen Poe themed restaurant. Almost three years later, he organized a weekend trip to Gettysburg, PA for a 20 mile bicycle trip around the battlefield. Little did Katie know, Scott had a surprise! At the end of the bicycle trip, Scott proposed to Katie in an area called the Peach Orchard. They are looking forward to living happily ever after.

The couple chose Patterson Park because it has been a part of their lives since they have moved to Baltimore 5-6 years ago. They visit it a few times each month to go running, play tennis, or attend an event. The park is also very beautiful for the outdoor-loving Scott and Katie.

Annapolis Engagement Photos | Annapolis Maryland Photographer | Kathleen and Eric

Eric and Kathleen met in 2010 at Ryeligh’s Oyster in Baltimore, followed by their date at the Annapolis Summer Garden Theater where they saw the musical Chicago. In May 2015, the couple went for a weekend getaway in the mountains with their golden retriever, Clara.  After a full day of hiking in the Shenandoah Valley, Eric then proposed to Kathleen at the top of the mountain overlooking the valley. Their upcoming wedding will be an intimate affair in June 2016 at the Kent Manor Inn.

For the engagement photo session, Kathleen and Eric picked Annapolis for the obvious reason, because the city had special memories for them, especially the Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre. They also brought Clara so that she could be photographed with them as well!

Wye Island Engagement Photos | Queenstown Maryland Photographer | Brittany and Andy

Brittany and Andy met approximately four years ago while working for the Anne Arundel County Government, then began dating two years ago and had been together ever since. Andy’s dog, Kaizer, had been a very important part of both Andy and Brittany’s lives. So when he finally decided to pop the question, Kaizer had to be involved. The couple were headed out to dinner and Andy feigned Kaizer having an illness. Andy then asked Brittany to “check out” Kaizer to see what was wrong, and when the pooch came into the room, Brittany noticed that there was a large “growth” on Kaizer’s neck. Upon closer examination, she discovered that the “growth” was in fact a ring box containing the engagement ring of her dreams. Once Brittany, and Kaizer, calmed down, Andy was able to retrieve the ring from Kaizer’s neck, slip it on Brittany’s finger, and the rest – as they say – is history….

For the engagement photo session, Brittany and Andy picked Wye Island because it was scenic and conveniently not too far from their home. Andy also used to go to the Wye Island NRMA a long time ago for picnic and camping.

Hidden Creek Country Club Wedding Photos | Reston Virginia Photographer | Nita and Leo

Leo and Nita trusted me with the choice of location for their pre-wedding photos, somewhere with beautiful outdoor scenery in an area they had never been before. I immediately suggested that the engagement photography session should be at Quiet Waters Park, Annapolis, Maryland. They loved the place.

And now for their wedding, the couple picked a place closer to their home.

The Venue: Hidden Creek Country Club

When Nita and Leo were looking for wedding venues, they wanted it to be in Northern Virginia between Alexandria and Chantilly, with an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. Hidden Creek Country Club in Reston, Virginia seemed to fit their needs. Although when they first booked the venue, they were still unsure of how many guest would be invited, but since this venue was quite big and could accommodate their needs, they went ahead. They also liked that the ceremony site was overlooking the green golf field.
