Wedding: Emily + Tim, Part 1

Emily and Tim, the adorable couple that did their engagement photo session at University of Maryland at College Park, finally tied the knot!

I just love everything about this wedding, the getting ready, the ceremony, the dress, the bouquet, and most importantly the Bride, the Groom, the family, and the wedding party. They’re all so nice, so warm. 🙂

Portrait: Lindsay [Black & White]

I met Lindsay through my good photographer friend Sabawa. I meant to do a high school senior photo session of Lindsay, but it was too late. She just graduated.
Fortunately, she still wanted to do the session anyway. 🙂

The photos in this set are all in black and white, because it seems to fit the mood, the shadows, and the light.

High School Senior: Tyler

I met Tyler through his Dad, Todd. I knew Todd because his company was the one who fixed the drainage problem on my yard. They did a really good job and just in time to test it out with Hurricane Sandy! Check out their Web site here: http://www.baysideirrigation.com/.

When I met Tyler the first time, my first reaction was, “You really look like your, Dad!”

Tyler just smiled and said, “Yeah, a lot of people say that.” 🙂

Engagement: Casey + Todd

Casey and Todd found me online. Then they found out later that I photographed the weddings of their neighbor’s, and also the wedding of the sister of Casey’s friend! What a small world!

I love the story of how their relationship started. I’m quoting what Casey said here:

“My grandfather and Todd’s grandfather were business friends. Their sons (my father and Todd’s uncle) became best friends and boating buddies. So as we were growing up we saw a lot of each other. Todd is older than me, so he eventually went off to college and we lost touch throughout school. When Todd was in graduate school, my mother and Todd’s uncle teamed up and said we needed to see each other again. To make a very long story short, we went out for sushi one night and that was that! He proposed a year and a half ago in the same parking lot/parking spot that we parked in on our first date. It was raining that evening and we were actually on our way to happy hour… I was so upset his pants were getting wet from kneeling in the rain! I was actually so shocked I snatched the ring and sat on it and kept asking him if he was serious. Not exactly the response he was looking for. Ha!”

Wedding: Melissa + Matt, Part 1

Melissa and Matt, one of the cutest couple I’ve ever met. Even the engagement session at Old Town Ellicott City photos would make you think that they’re a cute couple. 🙂

Melissa and Matt finally tied their knot at Ostertag Vistas, a cool vintage, shabby-chique-esque, farm estate.

Family: Clancy

Introducing The Clancy family from Pennsylvania. 🙂

They came to Ocean City, Maryland, for a week long summer vacation. They also had decided that while in OC, they wanted to have their family portrait done there as well. So they searched online for family portrait photographers in Eastern Shore Maryland and found me.

I’m so glad that they picked me. I really had fun photographing them. I really enjoyed capturing their love and relationship between each other.

Engagement: Danielle + Josh

I just can’t get over how I loved doing Danielle and Josh’s engagement session. It was something that I had never done before. Because they both loved to cook, I suggested “Why not do a pre-wedding photo session where you both are cooking?” They loved the idea! I then couldn’t wait to do session with them.

I also love their story of how they met and finally got engaged. However, rather than have me tell the story, I’ll just quote what Josh told me:

Danielle and I first met at a restaurant called Sweet Basil in Vail, Colorado.  At the time I was a chef at the restaurant and Danielle showed up one day interviewing for a job as a cook in the kitchen. Once Danielle got hired I would walk by and see her cutting peaches and singing “Millions of Peaches” and would sing along to flirt with her. The secondary color at the wedding is peach because of this.  Once I left the restaurant we started dating spending our time skiing, hiking, and enjoying all the activities Colorado has to offer.  After a year of dating we moved to Boulder, CO and lived there for one year working at sister restaurants.  Since I am from Cape Cod, Massachusetts and Danielle is from Maryland, we decided that we both missed the East Coast and moved back to Baltimore near where Danielle was from. We got a black lab then, named Hula. In May and June, Danielle was out of town, so that gave me time to ring shop and come up with an idea for the proposal. It was Monday, June 13, 2011 and instead of walking home from work with Danielle, I went home “sick” early. When Danielle got home she followed a trail of red roses that I had left leading up to the roof top deck. She followed the roses up where I was waiting.  There on top of the roof deck I got down on one knee and asked Danielle if she would marry me and she said “Yes!”.

What a lovely and romantic story!

Anyway, here are some of my favorite images from the session. Check out what they were cooking. 🙂

Wedding: Kelly + Chris, Part 1

I finally got the honor of photographing Kelly and Chris’ wedding at Annapolis after their engagement photo session at Washington College last year. If you haven’t seen their engagement pictures, you should definitely check it out. They’re really cute. 🙂

I just loved to photograph this couple because they were playful and were not shy to show their playfulness and their affection in front of the camera. 🙂
