I have literally been bursting at the seams to share this beautiful family’s portraits that we photographed in the Eastport neighborhood of Annapolis, MD. As a photographer, one of my favorite things to do is scout new locations to shoot. I love the ‘not so obvious’ spots. Hidden gems if you will! I used to live in Eastport and would visit this quiet dock area often. There is something so calming about sitting amongst the boats and watching the sun set over the Chesapeake Bay. Call me biased, but I think the Carey’s suit the location quite well!
If it isn’t already clear from the smiles on their faces, these two radiate happiness to all those around them. Chris and Laura married at Saints Peter and Paul Church in Easton followed by an amazing reception at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay. I couldn’t stop clicking! There was always one amazing heartfelt moment after the next to capture. Genuinely grateful to say I was part of the day they said “I do!”.

Meet Nicole and Joe! Naturally, the pair chose the United States Naval Academy for their engagement session as Joe is currently a midshipman. There is something so beautifully classic about the Academy. Buildings of grand stature, history and great pride. We began their session in front of Bancroft Hall and closed their session by wandering the quaint streets of Annapolis leading up to the State House.
The first thing on the agenda today is to wish you all a very happy Wednesday! The second is to feature this couple’s stunning wedding at Saint Mary’s Church and the United States Naval Academy Officer’s Club in Annapolis, MD. There is something that is so wonderfully beautiful and natural about these two when in front of the camera. Perfectly at ease. After getting to know them a little better following their engagement session I quickly learned their love for each other shares those very same qualities. Something to be admired!
While I’m certainly not wishing summer away, I can’t help but be excited for the fall. For photographers like myself it means family portrait season! Beautiful family after beautiful family to capture on camera before the holidays hit. I can’t even believe I just typed the word ‘holiday’. I also can’t get over how cute this little growing family is. I had the opportunity to photograph Caitlin and Matt at the beginning of their journey as parents so to see them year after year is such an amazing thing!
