Engagement sessions are such a sweet look into a couples’ beginning. Ive been smiling since the moment I took these images! Kara and Matt’s engagement session was set against a stunning farm backdrop overflowing with greenery and wide open fields. Not to mention the take-your-breath-away sunset that shined through at the very end of the day. Their wedding day will most definitely be an event to remember!
I’ve said it once (probably twice, or more!), how great it is when my profession connects me with people I’ve met and befriended along this little journey we call life. Its amazing to see the beautiful families that have been established, hear about the adventures taken, and to then have the opportunity to photograph these wonderful individuals. Scott and Melissa have brought into this world the sweetest little bundle of joy, Vivian. We walked along the landscapes at the United States Naval Academy and captured some priceless moments. They are only this small once! There really isn’t a look filled with more love than that of a new parent admiring their tiny newborn baby.
Oooo, this engagement session gives me goosebumps! Mt. Vernon has such a romantic air to it. Its like walking through an old world dream. The cobblestone streets, grand statues, perfectly manicured parks lined with row after row of brownstone homes. It was most definitely the perfect compliment to this pair! The love between them is just so beautifully natural. Speaking of natural, imagine magnolia trees scattered throughout the park with the softest pink blossoms covering every inch of the ground and limbs above. Dreamy indeed!
Truthfully, I don’t know where to start in describing just how awesome Adam and Tessa are and how incredibly happy I was to be a part of their day. Everything was chock full of Baltimore city charm, smiles from ear to ear, and dancing…lots and lots of dancing! Shoes off and everything! Not to mention that immediately following the ceremony the pair made a little detour to a local shop to snag some brews for their bridal party. Definitely made for a unique, super fun memory and moment on camera. The wide angle shot I snagged of these two on Federal Hill literally made my heart skip a beat. A favorite for sure!

Imagine a wedding with a bridal party grinning ear to ear, beautifully crafted bouquets accented with pops of anemones, the most incredible venue featuring views overlooking the Chesapeake Bay at sunset, and a ridiculously happy photographer (yours truly!) zig-zagging all over the place because there is truly so many beautiful moments and details to capture I can’t contain myself.
