ERIC & TARAH: LOVELY MINT WEDDING AT LIBERTY MOUNTAIN RESORT IN FAIRFIELD, PA // MARYLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

As soon as we arrived, we were in love with the beauty of the lodge and were so excited for the surprisingly cool weather for a July day! It felt like we were shooting an early Spring or Fall wedding which was so out-of-the-norm for Maryland! Tarah and Eric’s day was authentic and genuine and so full of emotion! We absolutely loved their first look which left Eric totally in awe and speechless at the sight of his gorgeous bride. Then, we adventured around the lodge to find some amazing portrait locations and they were up for anything! The property itself doesn’t have a ton of tree coverage, so Tarah and Eric trusted us and trekked up a hill in to the woods, stood on the side of the driveway near a flower patch, and twirled around on the front patio of the lodge!

STEVE & MIKAELA: ADORABLY QUIRKY ECLECTIC WEDDING AT GREEN MEADOWS PETTING FARM IN IJAMSVILLE, MD // MARYLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Steve and Mikaela's wedding was equal parts elegant, quirky, and eclectic from her gorgeous and fairy-tale like dress, to details of their favorite Marvel Lego super heroes, a pinky promise during their ceremony, and a light saber battle surprise after their first dance. Mikaela wore a beautiful tiara that Steve gave to her when he proposed in Disney at the Be Our Guest restaurant!

CHRIS & KRISTEN: ENGAGEMENT SESSION AT PATAPSCO VALLEY STATE PARK // MARYLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

Where do we begin with a couple like Chris and Kristen? We were so excited to meet with them for their engagement session just a few weeks ago at Patapsco Valley State Park. This rainy day today has us wishing we could go back to this gorgeous day with them! Although it was a little chilly, the sun was shining and sparkled through the trees and off of the water.

CHRIS & DANIELLE: ENGAGEMENT SESSION AT MONTAGU MEADOWS IN CARROLL COUNTY, MD // MARYLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

Wow! We are less than a month away from Chris and Danielle's wedding day! It isn't typical that we would go back in time and write a blog post, but their engagement session was just so sweet and we couldn't resist sharing it! Not only is Montagu Meadows gorgeous and the weather was beautiful this day, but Chris and Danielle are also ridiculously photogenic! We don't even think they realize just how adorable they are in front of the camera and how easy they made our job that day!

ALEC & CLARA: ROMANTIC, VIBRANT, SNOWY ENGAGEMENT SESSION IN CARROLL COUNTY, MD // MARYLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

It feels really strange to us to be writing this blog post today when, just last week, we were with Alec and Clara in 6+ inches of snow capturing their engagement session! The sun might not be shining today but it is 64 degrees (correction, 66 degrees as we just checked our weather app again) here in MD which is a whirlwind from last week! But as most Marylander's know -- that's just how it is here! You could say instead, "Maryland is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get!".

ANDREW & SHANNON: ROCKY VIRGINA ENGAGEMENT SESSION // MARYLAND & VIRGINIA ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

Andrew and Shannon's engagement session was one of our last for the season and it couldn't have been more amazing! They were visiting their family in Maryland, for the Thanksgiving holiday, all the way from California! We searched for a location for their engagement session that could still give us a little bit of those "West Coast Vibes" here on the East Coast. When we found this spot, Andrew and Shannon fell in love with it just as much as we did and it was settled! Shannon and Andrew love to hike and be active, so they were up for a little adventure with us, and this magical place fit them so perfectly!

ALEC & CLARA: ADVENTUROUS ENGAGEMENT SESSION AT WEVERTON CLIFFS IN WEST VIRGINIA // MARYLAND & WEST VIRGINIA ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

We had the opportunity to work with Alec and Clara again last week and our hearts were melting during their entire session. They are the SWEETEST couple and they giggled and snuggled during the entire shoot whether we were posing them or not! That right there -- is a photographer's dream! Jimmy and I love seeing couples truly happy together; it makes our job all the more fun!
