This couple here, they are what wedding photographers dreams are made of. John and Eric were referred my way via a photographer friend of mine, Stacey of Atomic Cheesecake Studios. We chatted briefly and with a fast approaching wedding, we decided quickly that we all wanted to work together. Eric and John met the old fashioned way, online, and the pair quickly moved in together and have traveled the world. I instantly fell head over heels for them as a couple and as people.
John and Eric are the type of people you instantly feel comfortable around and it was like I was hanging out with old friends on their wedding day. We luckily had full run of Gertrude’s, which is located at the Baltimore Museum of Art. The set up on the inside of that garden is unbelievable. The pair opted to do all photographs before the ceremony, which took pressure off after so the two could go mingle with their guests. Their first song was an acoustic version of the “Friends” theme song. Since the pair travel quite frequently, they had three different food stations set up with dishes inspired by their favorite places. They also had a gorgeous brownie bar for the dessert portion of the night.
I truly cannot say enough about these two. Their love for each other, the happy tears, the amazing family bonds that covered the wedding, it was one I will cherish throughout my entire career as a photographer.
I truly adore Eric and John and I look forward to being able to watch their lives grow together.
Now onto the good stuff… the photos!
Sara and Andrew’s engagement shoot… where do I even begin? This is one of those shoots where you have the most difficult time narrowing down images.
Sarah and Andrew are one of the cutest couples of all time. The way they look at each other how it’s like no one else exists, the way he leaned in to give her a kiss on command with no awkwardness shown and the smiles on their faces are enough to give any cynic the romantic feels.
We all decided to meet up at the boardwalk and Havre de Grace and just go with it. There wasn’t over planning, there wasn’t strict guidelines to the shoot, we literally just went and hung out. And the results are some of my favorite engagement shoots to date. I adore the pair and everything about them. I am so proud to be a part of their big day in May of 2016!
Here are some of the top images from the day!
A large majority of my client base are people I have known for ages and referrals from those clients. This one was no exception. I had clients sign up for this that I have known since I first picked up a camera, to a few brand new clients. The Mommy & Me shoot was very special because I have yet to do a shoot where it was just a Mom and her child/children.
Only in the past two years have I truly understood what it means to be in a Mom role. I have a step daughter and up until the point where she came into my life, I will honestly say, I didn’t think being a Mom looked “too hard.” I thought getting out there, going to work and taking life by the horns was much more difficult. Well little did I know an adorable little 3-year old would change my thoughts completely. You have to take yourself out of that number 1 position and make sure that little person is taken care of first. I could ramble on about all I have learned, but I will say I tip my hat to all of you Mom’s out there. It’s the toughest job around and I stand up an applaud you.
As you can see from the images below, each of my Mom’s had a different and unique style to their shoot. It’s whats made them all special
Happy (Belated) Mothers Day!
I recently had the pleasure of photographing a wedding of a wonderful lady I have known for quite some time. Ursula and I met several years ago through a mutual friend and she contacted me earlier this year about photographing her big day! Once we talked on the phone, we both realized it would be a perfect fit!
After I got involved and realized how much planning the families put into their wedding, I was instantly smitten with all the little details. The pair had thought out every last little piece. Down to the asparagus boutineer… yes, I said ASPARAGUS! It was gorgeous. There was origami died book paper adorning little details throughout the wedding, silver coated dinosaurs were scattered throughout the entire day, books upon books marked where people sat and decor, one of the most creative guest books I have ever seen was also set up at the wedding. One also extremely unique aspect this gorgeous wedding was a Lithuanian Šakotis cake. The family had it flown all the way in from Chicago.
Ursula and Josh are truly a match made for each other. The two could not stop smiling when they were around the other and their personalities went hand in hand. Everything about this wedding just put a huge smile on my face. The groom and groomsman walked down the isle to the Indiana Jones theme song, the bride walked down to the Game of Thrones theme song and once the two became one, they danced back down the isle to “Everything is Awesome” from the Lego Movie. I couldn’t be more happy to have been able to be a part of their story.
Without further introduction… enjoy the beautiful photos that are Ursula and Josh’s BIG DAY!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing a Stephanie and Mike’s engagement session in Cape May, NJ!
It was quite a chilly day but we took the trolly around for a mini tour of the area and then followed up with a stop into their favorite little spot, Ugly Mugs. By the time we were done, we realized that there was a sudden snow storm and we high tailed it over to the beach to be able to capture some of my favorite engagement images to date!
I adore these two and am so thrilled to be able to be apart of their big day in October!
Congrats Steph & Mike!
I recently had the privileged of meeting a wonderfully talented lady named Molly Goodall at the American Made Trade Show in Washington DC in January. I was drawn to her booth because she had gorgeous photography showcasing the amazing clothing she designs and creates for little kids.
We got to talking and decided I would photograph a new item she has yet to have photographed. So after a few email exchanges the jacket reached my hands, all the way from Texas.
I then called on two friends to allow me the pleasure of photographing their adorable kids in the pink dinosaur jacket! Thank you Lydia and Ruth for being such fun little ones to photograph!
Here are some ofm y favorites from the photo shoot!
After a little down time I am back in full swing and headed into Spring Wedding and Engagement Session Season. Since today marks the first day of spring and the snow is falling, I figured what a better blog than my first engagement session of the year.
Audrey and Will opted to do a snowy engagement shoot, since their wedding will be held at the beach. So why not mix it up and give both sets of photos a completely different feel. Audrey and Will drove down to my studio in Chesapeake City, MD and we went straight to work on the shoot! The two were so much fun and up for literally anything, even rolling around in the snow!
Audrey had this wonderful smile that just being around her, put a smile on yours face. I cannot wait to be there and be able to capture their big day in May!
Now onto the photos!
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Charlie & Melody’s maternity session. Charlie has grown up with my fiancé and it was an honor to be able to work with the pair. The love these two have for each other is so sweet and kept a huge smile on my face the entire time.
I feel truly honored to be able to capture this special moment in their story. I cannot wait to meet the little Mr.
I had the amazing pleasure of traveling to Nashville, TN… aka my old hometown, last October to photograph a wedding of two absolutely lovely people, Anastacia and Freddy.
Through a round about way, I sort of brought their paths towards each other and once they met, the rest was inevitable. They were perfect for each other. So when they got engaged, I was very excited to be able to go back to my old stomping ground and photograph the big day.
The ceremony and reception were held at The Cordelle, a beautifully modern location rested in the heart of Nashville. The flowers were a mix of whites, creams and reds. Anastacia’s dress was one she made herself and her veil was her mother’s.
It was such a beautiful experience to see someone who defined a major part of my life while living in the south, move on to the next big chapter in her life. Stace and I have shared countless memories, from singing crappy pop-punk in our cars at the top of our lungs to drinking Honey Whiskey at Santa’s Pub in Nashville. She will always hold a spot in my heart. Congratulations to you both. It was an honor to be able to be a part of your day.
Without further ado… Here are images from their wedding!
Where do I even begin with these two. Well for starters, I have known Steph since she was a youngster. Her sister has been my lifelong best friend. Their family became like my family in college and I am thankful to know all of these loving people.
I have watched Steph grow up and become a beautiful woman. When I was introduced to Chris, it was very clear the two were perfect together. We photographed their engagement session last year with their dog Brewsky, all along Fells Point and Canton. As you can see from the photos below, Brew also made it into their wedding day.
Stephanie and Chris are such a lovely couple. Two of the sweetest people you will ever meet. Their big day was surrounded by loved ones on their families property at Pintail Point. The backdrop was stunning, the food and decor was one of the most gorgeous I have ever seen. This was all done by none other than Chef’s Expressions.
It was an honor to be able to capture their big day. Congrats again Steph & Chris!! I absolutely love you both and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you <3
