Mark and Jody truly had the quintessential summer wedding. Their laid back beach nuptials under the setting sun had me melting. Jody’s flower selection was so clever! Each bridesmaids’ bouquet was beautifully crafted with a single type of flower while her bouquet was a fun collaboration of all the florals in a colorful summery shades.
So, sometimes the best laid plans don’t go…well…exactly as planned. Like that one time I planned an awesome engagement session with Zac and Dani at a dreamy bayside location and our cars got locked in the parking lot! After a little “knock, knock, whose there” and a few conversations with some friendly neighbors…freedom!
But rewind that thought, back to the photography portion of the evening. Eeeek, it was perfect! Zac and Dani’s adorable pup Ozzy may have stolen the spotlight once or twice. I swear he winked at the camera.
Their wedding took place this past Saturday. Its a gorgeous one I can’t wait to share!
Love it patient, love is kind, and sometimes love comes in the form of the cutest little boy who’s cheeks you just want to pinch and pinch some more! Even better…this family is expecting baby number 2. Such a sweet idea to spend some time having photographs take of their family of three before it grows.
You know those weddings where everything looks perfectly easy and beautiful. The bride is as calm as can be. The groom, happy, surrounded by his buddies awaiting his beautiful bride. That was this wedding! It was such a breath of fresh air. No crazy running around. Instead everyone was soaking it all in. Every bit of laughter, every moment. Even the rain, perfectly timed to start at the onset of their ceremony, didn’t stir up the slightest bit of worry. I simply loved it!
I remember the first time Elizabeth with the Capital Gazette asked me if I would provide a photograph for the cover of the Gazette’s magazine, Capital Style. She probably would have chuckled at the face I made from behind the computer screen while reading her email. Excitement and awe mixed with a screeching “eeeek!” (the good squeal, not the bad!). I couldn’t believe it. It was truly a bucket list moment. Fast forward multiple covers later (I can’t even believe I get to type that!) and I was sent on more of an “assignment” type shoot. I was asked to photograph the lovely Christina of the Proper Hunt. An incredible blog filled with fashion, DIY projects, interior design, and Christina’s fab finds. When shooting the cover of a magazine there are a lot of things I have to keep in mind. Most importantly, leaving enough space for headers and text. But that doesn’t mean I can’t squeeze in a few landscape style shots and “for fun” images that express my creativity. Including black and whites.
Did I mention she also has a super cute family that I got to photograph a few weeks back. I’m bursting with excitement to share that one! Stay tuned.
So here she is guys and dolls!
