MICHAEL & BROOKE: LAKESIDE ENGAGEMENT SESSION AT CODORUS STATE PARK IN HANOVER, PA // MARYLAND ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

Do you know what we love? We love getting to know our couples and what they love to do together! When Brooke and Michael said that they love to kayak, we knew a park or lake engagement session would be perfect for them! Brooke and Michael have known each other since kindergarten and started dating in the 10th grade! Not only is it totally adorable that they are high school sweethearts, but they’ve been together for 8 years already and it is so sweet to see them anxiously await their wedding day after all these years together!

CHRIS & AMBER: INTIMATE DOWNTOWN BALTIMORE WEDDING // MARYLAND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

One of our favorite moments of the day was when Amber realized she had a beautiful butterfly pendant in her bouquet. When she was told that Chris had arranged for it to be added to her flowers, she was so touched by her soon-to-be sweet husband! For those of you who don’t know, Amber’s Gram always said that when she passed, she would become a butterfly, so the deep symbolism behind the beautiful pendant speaks volumes of Chris’ love for Amber and making sure that she knew her Gram was close by.

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!

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.

Wow! We are less than a month away from Chris and Danielle's wedding day!

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!
