MISA ME Photography bio picture
  • Hello and welcome to all things MISA ME! I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Annapolis, Maryland.

    My photos say it all but if I had to describe my style in three words they would be fresh and candid always with a touch of sun flare .

    I've meshed the best of both worlds into this "blogsite" where you'll find post after post and image after image of the beauty I see in those I photograph and the moments that make you melt.

    Capturing laughter on camera gets me right in the gut! I'll rock your portrait session and click away from beginning to end on your wedding day!

    Hope to see you on the flip side of my camera!

First Day of Spring

Mother nature, you’re a funny one indeed! Naturally, on the first day of spring I had planned to post some beautiful floral imagery. If you’re in the state of Maryland and looking outside you know why the images below are making an appearance instead. SNOW!?

These few snapshots are from a little weekend getaway my husband and I took to visit some family in the great state of New Hampshire. Its a very special place to us! My husband’s family always greets us with the warmest hug. They run an incredible farm, Almost There Farm, that they have built from the ground up. Horses, chickens, ducks, pups, horses, horses, did I say horses? The hard work and love they put into the farm is truly admirable. My husband’s cousin, Jack, took me on a mini tour during one of the many snowfalls this winter. I snapped as many shots as I could before my fingers literally froze. Major props to those of you who photograph regularly in colder parts of the world! They must make special gloves with mini hand warmers just for photographers. If not, patent pending!

Christiane

If you like MISA ME Photography on Facebook, you may notice one of the images from this post that I released as a preview. The image was accompanied by a saying that rings so true in my heart. “Beauty is the opposite of perfection – its confidence, charisma and character”. There is this belief that photography captures the outer beauty when in truth the essence of a beautiful image comes from one’s inner beauty bursting through. Its the laughter conveyed through a smile, the intimacy coming from the eyes and the confidence that starts to shine through once the bit of nerves dissipates. I truly believe that we all deserve an individual moment in front of the camera.  It captures one’s radiance, I promise! I’ve seen it every time. The timid, shy, or self conscious begin to blossom. You are beautiful! Allow yourself to see it, to feel it, to believe it.

Thank you, Christiane! For playing model for me during these crazy cold winter months.

Alan & Jane

Friends, I love winter. I don’t think there is anything more beautiful than that blanket of white, white snow. But by now, I think we’re all doing a little jig because spring is peeking through bit by bit. Buh-bye winter!  That happy thought also has me going “eeeek!” because I still have a few great fall engagement sessions and weddings to share. Jane and Alan’s being one of them. I love this session because of the obvious awesome couple. But also the variety in the backdrops! A park scene, boat docks, water, beach and bridge. What more could you ask for? Oh yes, the perfect sunset! Got it.

 

Sam & Claire’s Wedding

For those fond of high school sweetheart fairytales, this wedding is for you! A nighttime ceremony held at Targart Memorial Chapel in McDonough High School where the couple first met. A reception filled with stunning florals, gold chiavari chairs, and touches of elegance. The entire day went off without a hitch thanks to the incredible team of ladies with Eventi Planning! They held on tight to one of the best kept wedding secrets…the Orioles bird was set to make an appearance and surprise his #1 fan, Claire. Her expressions say it all!

Ricky & Mary’s Wedding

A delicious wedding just in time for today’s lunch break? You got it!

Sometimes the stars align perfectly. You watch your available weekends start to narrow down with a select few Saturdays free. Then, magically, the perfect couple comes along requesting the date you’re hoping will get scooped up next. Love that!

Mary and Ricky were that couple for me. The kindest individuals who together as Mr. & Mrs. shared one of the loveliest wedding days. The gardens had me swooning as did their sweet love. This first shot gets me right in the gut. The sun came out for a very short moment just as we were making out way back to their reception.
