  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 […]

This couple and I were made for each other. When planning their engagement session, Remi wanted to do something in Maryland but didn’t know what, so she asked me if there was anything I was really excited to shoot. I thought about if Ben and I were to get engaged again, what would we want […]

I absolutely love it when client suggest engagement locations. I had never heard of Chapman State Park but now, it’s one of my favorite places in the area. This venue has it all: a charming manor, tall grass fields and a small beach at the bottom of the hill. Lisa and Jason like to go […]

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 […]

After talking to Ashley and Sean, I KNEW they had to do their engagement session someplace epic and magical. Ashley does cos-play in her free time so I just knew that Cloisters Castle was the perfect setting for her Beauty and the Beast vibes. We traveled to Maryland and had the castle all to ourselves!

Shira & Brian are the sweetest pair. Their love is super natural and they both have a casual spirit about them that I love. We decided to snap engagement photos in one of their favorite places: Baltimore. These two got to love this city and it’s where their relationship blossomed. They would spend time walking around the waterfront and enjoying good food and scenic sunsets together. What a better way to celebrate your relationship than to commemorate your favorite spots together.

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.

Katie and Danny have been together for over four years. They met in school and have been through moves, new careers and are now husband and wife! Katie and Danny planned for a more laid back affair with a water overlook to be able to spend the most time with friends and family. These two planned a classic Maryland wedding complete with a beachfront cocktail hour, a live band and a ton of incredible food! The crab place cards were also the perfect Maryland touch for their Chesapeake Bay Beach Club wedding!

I swear it, Alex and Alyse have the BEST LUCK with photos! We walked to their favorite little pier in Baltimore only to find a historic boat show passing through! The rain held out for us as we heard cannons firing off in the distance! We ended our session at their favorite Ice Cream store, Baltimore Licks, where we got perfect parking and a lot of treats!

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.
