Stephanie and Mike — Cape May Engagement Session

Posted by on Apr 14, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

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!

Little Goodall Photo Shoot

Posted by on Mar 31, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

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!

Audrey & Will — Winter Engagement Session

Posted by on Mar 20, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

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!

Charlie & Melody — Maternity Session

Posted by on Jan 21, 2015 in Blog | 1 comment

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.

Anastacia & Freddy Wedding — Nashville, TN

Posted by on Jan 11, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

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!

Christopher & Stephanie — The Point at Pintail Wedding

Posted by on Jan 5, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

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

Little Miss Charlie’s First Birthday!

Posted by on Dec 27, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

I rarely post event photos, but I couldn’t not share this one!

I recently had the pleasure of becoming friends with the So family through mutual friends. Kristen has since become someone I consider a friend and has such a beautiful family. Her and Bennett are such amazing parents and that is evident through the unbelievable personality in Charlie. She’s the sweetest little girl!

The party was held at their home in Laurel, with a lot of close friends and family. The theme color was pink with hints of winter time, like nut crackers and snow flakes. Charlie’s attire was ADORABLE. She had a white onesie that had “One” in gold sequence, a pink/gold tutu and pink leggins with hearts on the knee.

It’s getting to know people like this that keep me loving my job. Happy Birthday Charlie!!

OXOX

Kristen & Paul — Philadelphia Engagement Session

Posted by on Dec 23, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

What more needs to be said about Kristen and Paul than… have you seen the way these two look at each other?

It’s one of those things that makes you believe in true love. I met these two love birds through Kristen’s Mom and Elk Manor Winery, which is where the two love birds will be getting married next year!

We had such an awesome day when we shot their engagement session, however, it was one of the coldest days of the year. Despite the chilly weather, we managed to capture some of the most AWESOME chilly day engagement photos all over Philadelphia.

Congrats again on your engagement and I am looking forward to your beautiful wedding day in 2015!

Welcome to the B.O.B. Freak Show…

Posted by on Dec 13, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

Well this was a shoot that crept up out of a friend posting an American Horror Story Freak Show image on my Facebook. It got quite a lot of traction and a lot of girls were interested in being transformed into something a less typical than my “girlie sessions.” These were girls that were willing to let us take our creative control and turn them into characters in our vision of a Freak Show.

We were inspired from the television show that is airing, but we put our little sexy take on it. Caitlyn Meyer, hair and makeup goddess, took the helm and helped to create these awesome outfits spending days hunting down the perfect ensemble. Brandon Russell was there along the entire trip and helped put together the characters you see below.

We also had help from the INCREDIBLY talented Two Back Flats with the stunning hats and collars you see below.

Hair and Makeup: Caitlyn Meyer

Hats and Collars: Two Back Flats

Styling: Brandon Russell
Photo Assistant: Vanessa Funk
Hair and Makeup Assistant: Rachel Lane

Cast of Characters Include:
Clown
Snake Charmer
Ring Leader
Gypsy/Fortune Teller

All of the gorgeous ladies did an AMAZING job with this shoot channeling their inner actress and letting their guard down to allow us to create something we would be proud to show off.

So without further ado… the B.O.B. Freak Show Characters…

The Roland’s Family Photo Session

Posted by on Dec 9, 2014 in Blog | 1 comment

Where to begin with this family. Well for starters I have known Bryan and Tonya since I was 19 years old. Bryan has grown up and been best friends with my fiancé since they were kids. So needless to say this family holds a special place in my heart. They are like my own family.

We shot off these images on a terribly cold day in November and managed to knock out these shots in about 15 minutes with full cooperation of everyone involved. Lydia sure knows how to ham it up in front of the camera.

Without further ado… I present to you the Roland’s family photo shoot!
