This is probably one of my favorite sessions of the year so sorry for the oversharing! Daniel is actually technically my nephew (although he is our age). He and Jill got engaged this past year and started planning their chic DC wedding. Like all 2020 couples, COVID reared its ugly head and threw their plans […]

I was NOT going to do a behind the scenes  blog post this year, In fact, I HATE the way I look when I am working. This is not a glamorous job people. I sweat. My hair is a hot mess. My makeup runs. I have to wear these really unattractive shoes so my plantar […]

2019 Behind the Scenes | Washington DC Wedding Photographer | Personal Post

  2019, Wow. What a freakin’ ride. When I look back at this year, I kind of have to laugh. Starting this year, my word of the year was “Rest”. I did anything but rest. I came in from 2018 pretty worn down from my biggest year yet so, I raised my prices and vowed […]

A Year in Review 2019 | Destination Wedding Photographer Kir Tuben | Personal Post

What could be a better addition to an engagement shoot than a new puppy!? Vince got Nicole this darling pupper as a gift; he gave Nicole the collar first and she was utterly confused until she saw Zeppelin! These two actually live in Chicago but traveled back home to Maryland for a friend’s wedding. While […]

When Sarah from Intrigue Designs asks if you would like to take photos in her stunning floral workshop, you say YES! Intrigue is one of the world’s best floral designers and they host workshops all around the globe. This year, Sarah just so happened to host one at Prism in Annapolis! I loved the minimalism of the space and the white walls were the perfect accompaniment to all of the wildly creative blooms.

Maryland Engagement Session | Prism Annapolis Engagement | Intrigue Floral Design Workshop

This was my second magical engagement with this couple. You only get engaged once but who says you can only have one engagement session? Kathy had a super unique vision to create studio magic for her engagement party décor and then have a more natural outdoor session where they met and fell in love.

Courtney and Eddie are two people who just deserve to be married. Because of Eddie’s commitment to our country, these two have put miles on their relationship. They have Skyped and bought expensive plane tickets for years all over the states including Florida, DC and now finally are settled in their new home in North Carolina.

United States Naval Academy Wedding | USNA Wedding | Annapolis Wedding Photographer | Courtney and Eddie

This was my first time ever shooting in Annapolis! After much internet stalking, I decided that the Maryland Statehouse and Fleet Street were the quintessential spots for an Annapolis engagement session… and boy was I right! We started at the center of town and wandered around the stunning white columns of the house on the hill.

Annapolis Engagement | Maryland State House and Fleet Street Engagement | Katie and Danny

This is one of my favorite sessions ever, not only because I loved the location, but I love the couple as well! I met Cale and Lori in college and actually eventually ended up working with Cale. He was in my husbands fraternity and Lori was in the “tacos”- a friend group of very close friend/roommate Steph Robinson. I always feel honored when friends ask me to capture their love story! It is an awesome thing to be asked. When they texted, “would you be opposed to shooting on a boat?” my response was “well, duh.”
