Nancy and John met at work in July of 2014, when both were working as diagnostic sonographers for the same company in Colorado and covering the same office that one day. After that meeting, their friendship developed over the year.
In July 2015, they vacationed in Crested Butte together, where their friendship evolved into something more.
Subsequently they planned a trip back East to Maryland and D.C. for May 2016 to visit family and to celebrate John’s birthday. Unfortunately, a month before their scheduled trip, Nancy stumbled down some steps and fractured both her left ankle and right foot. However, with John’s urging and reassurance, they proceeded with their trip, despite the fact that Nancy had bilateral leg casts and could only get around by wheelchair. They stayed with Nancy’s parents at their idyllic Magothy riverfront home.
On John’s birthday, the couple rolled (via wheelchair) around nearby historic Annapolis and ended at the Chart House on the Severn, where they met up with Nancy’s family to dine and celebrate John’s big day. Between dinner and dessert, he popped the question and presented her with a beautiful engagement ring! Nancy said yes! They celebrated their engagement with Nancy’s family over dessert. It was a warm and loving time.
The Venue: Home Backyard
The next morning, the newly engaged couple awoke to the sounds of the leaves rustling in the trees, the gentle waves of the Magothy lapping the shore, and the harmonious chirps of the birds, crickets, and cicadas in the trees of the neighboring parkland. It was lovely. So lovely, in fact, that they decided it would be the perfect setting for their small intimate wedding. Nancy’s parents agreed, and so, their dream became reality just a short four months later.
Steve and Caitlin met in medical school. He asked her out on several dates for sometime after that, but she didn’t take him seriously until he surprised her with a Valentine’s Day note.
Fast forward to 2.5 months later, they were supposed to be going to the beach to help his sister and partner picked out their rehearsal dinner venue. Before dinner, Caitlin and Steve were going to look at the sandcastle contest, but the next thing she knew they were alone at the beach, which was where he proposed. The best part was that Steve had gotten Caitlin’s family there as well so that they could all celebrate together.
The Venue: Chesapeake Bay Beach Club
Choosing the venue was a pretty easy decision for the couple. Steve and Caitlin immediately fell in love with the beautiful Chesapeake Bay Beach Club. From the moment they walked into the venue, they felt comfortable and cared for by their coordinator and the entire staff. Caitlin and Steve knew they would run the night seamlessly and went beyond their expectations. That doesn’t even mention how amazing the food was! It was a perfect weekend and they had amazing experiences with each vendors from beginning to the end.
Blake and Barbara had the quintessential post millennium meet cute since they found each other on a dating site. Their first date was on a Friday, followed by the second one on that Saturday, and by Sunday night they were three dates in and never looked back. They bonded over Star Trek, books and a shared belief that Blake was the funniest person in the world. Less than two years later Blake slipped a ring on Barbara’s finger. Despite this, on September 3rd, 2016 Blake and Barbara will be married at the Maryland Science Center, Baltimore.
Interestingly Barbara and Blake decided that instead of doing their engagement photo session elsewhere, they should do it at home. Their reason was simple but just right. One of their favorite things was spending time at home together, and they liked the idea of recording that, so that someday they’ll be able to look at these pictures and remember their first home together.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
