When you start the morning of your engagement session by signing a contract for a beautiful new home, that is quite the start to an all-american day. And lucky for me, Michelle and Tyler chose Frederick to call home. Frederick is known for its rich history and with this classic couple, To celebrate their new home we traveled off the beaten path to take in the beautiful views Frederick offers. Michelle and Tyler are such a fun loving pair and we had so much fun enjoying the sunset together. With the apple tree, the mountains and the fields, I am a true sucker for this backdrop. Michelle certainly added to the fun with her classic style…the white tulle skirt, pearls and heels. And fortunately Tyler has some great taste too! If the session isn’t proof enough, just take a look at that gorgeous custom quatrefoil engagement ring!! Michelle and Tyler congratulations on your new home and welcome to the neighborhood! I can’t wait for your wedding!

When Meghan first contacted me she told me two things… her wedding was going to be romantic…and her dogs were going to be there. She is someone who knows exactly what she wants and her wedding was to her exact specifications. Fortunately for me she has impeccable taste and shooting her day was absolutely wonderful, pups and all. The guests were led from the ceremony to the reception by a bagpiper where they were greeted with a live band and great food. Of course the wine was wonderful too. Maryland is not the first place that comes to mind when you think of vineyards and at times I wasn’t sure we had left the land of crabs and Old Bay for sweet southern California. Meghan and Brett recently left the Old Line State for a new adventure living in Texas. Congratulations you two…Maryland is going to miss you!

If it isn’t obvious already, this wedding was fun. Fun. Fun. Fun. Elizabeth and Random met as children in their neighborhood and have been best friends ever since. They are laid back, kind and know how to throw a good party. Their friends and family knew how to enjoy themselves too and the day can be described as one big celebration. Often weddings are romantic and serious, but as evidenced by the father of the bride in the red nose, this wedding party knew how to just enjoy themselves. Elizabeth and Random, I could not be happier for the two of you and I know this is just one gorgeous day in the lifetime you have ahead together. Cheers.

Rob reached out to me just a few weeks before him and Pamela’s wedding day. I had recently photographed a wedding in which he was a groomsmen and he wanted to know if I was available. It was a Friday garden wedding with just family…read 6 people including the bride and groom. My response was when and where? I absolutely love large weddings, but these little gems have their own little place in my heart. Pamela wore a gorgeous white skirt from Anthropologie and adorable kitten heels from Kate Spade. These two were so laid back and we enjoyed exploring the gardens for some gorgeous portraits following their ceremony. Congratulations you two! I hope your marriage is as wonderful as your wedding day.
