The Belvedere : Abbey & Matt

I really enjoyed working with Abbey & Matt! They are a super sweet and laid back couple and they needed to be since they scheduled their wedding at the Belvedere the same day as Pride! It was actually pretty awesome since it made me do things a little differently than...

Pier 5 Hotel Wedding : Bunnie & Nolan

Bunnie & Nolan's ceremony was perfectly timed for a ridiculous thunderstorm... literally the officiant made an opening remark as the big fat rain drops started to fall. But as true as with life, after the rain, was the best rainbow EVER. Congrats to Bunnie & Nolan and...

Cattail Creek Country Club : Colleen & Peter

Colleen & Peter's wedding was gorgeous from the start. They were married at Colleen's family church, only 10 min from her parents house where the girls got ready. We arrived early and we had some time after the girls were lined up where Colleen and her dad were...

Molly & Rob

Molly & Rob got a beautiful day for their wedding at the Baltimore Basilica and The Engineers Club. I loved being a part of this awesome day with other amazing vendors,  Perry Hall Florist, Up Do's For I do's, all wonderfully coordinated by Kay of Prestigious...

Swan Harbor Farms Wedding : Jordan & Ryan

Swan Harbor Farms is one of the area's most picturesque locations for a wedding, no wonder Jordan and Ryan picked it. With a breeze off the bay and under an arch handmade by Ryan, the setting could not have been more perfect. Everyone enjoyed the views, while spending...

Ellicott City Lifestyle Newborn Photographer : Introducing Jackson

Here is two of my favorite sessions this year combined into one blog post. Kerry & Scott got married a couple years ago and I was over the moon when I heard they were expecting, and even more pumped that they wanted a maternity and newborn session. I love being a part...

Columbia Family Photographer : Le Family

Alex and Tuan had a great idea..a family photo session with both of their families. I had met Alex and Tuan when they were in the bridal party for one of my couples and was so thrilled when they asked me to do a more causal family photo session. We met at Centennial...

Lake George Club Wedding: Jess & Pete

Talk about a whirlwind weekend. I photographed a wedding on Friday then drove up to NY on Saturday to shoot Jess & Pete's wedding on Sunday. It was insane and exhausting but it was all worth it for this amazing couple. Sunday morning was sunny and crisp like a fall...

Fell Point Engagement : Abbey & Matt

I found Abbey & Matt drinking a beer at the bar we were supposed to meet in front of for their engagement session... but no beers were really needed for this couple to loosen up in front of the camera. They were adorable and I had a blast walking around the streets of...

Mansion at Valley Country Club : Abbey & Nick

Maybe it is because Abbey is the doppleganger of my best friend Holly (who also got married at the Mansion at Valley Country Club) right down to their look, mannerisms and plain goofiness but I fell in love with Abbey as soon as we met. It could also be that Abbey &...

Four Seasons Baltimore : Sienna & Josh

Some things are just meant to be... When Sienna & Josh exchanged their vows and rings, you could see it in their eyes; it was meant to be.  Their Four Seasons wedding was intimate and beautiful. Loved ones from near and far came to celebrate with them and witness the...

Cromwell Valley Maternity : Stacey, James, Carmen and Baby L

Stacey was glowing on the night of her maternity session at Cromwell Valley Park. I was so impressed with soon-to-be big sister Carmen. She did such a great job with photos! She rocked her "window" of being cooperative and then went home for bed so I was able to do a...

Hunt Valley Golf & Country Club : Kristyn & Tim

The day dawned a bit cloudy but ended with sparklers!  When you combine loving friends and family, a beautiful bride, a handsome groom and the most adorable flower girls and ring bearer, you have an amazing day. No amount of rain could wash away the smiles and...

Backyard Barn Wedding : Marna & Aaron

Small, intimate weddings might be my favorites. Aaron & Marna got married on Aaron's parents estate in Owings Mills... in a barn and it was the coolest barn EVER. My heart skipped a beat when I saw it. Marna looked stunning in a jeweled pink dress and I loved how they...

Celebrations at the Bay : Megan & Tyler

It was a beautiful day on the water for this lucky couple. I've been waiting to shoot this wedding for a long time. Between Helen and I, we have photographed 6 of their friends weddings along with a one more scheduled for July so needless to say.. we know the crew....

Backyard Extravaganza : Emily & Ryan

The heavens were looking down on this awesome couple for their wedding day. The first day of scattered sun in almost 2 weeks and just as the officiant announced them as husband and wife, the warm sun shined down on them. Pam with Elizabeth Bailey Events worked...

Swan Harbor Farm Engagement : Angela & David

Angela & David's engagement session was so much fun. I need to photograph at Swan Harbor more often. What a gorgeous location! I did not know that you can shoot engagement sessions there until Angela suggested it, but I have photographed there a few times for...

Towson Newborn Photographer : James

Welcome to the world James. I am a little late in blogging their session since it got caught up in the mix of holiday crazieness but better late than never. Congrats to this adorable family on one cute baby...

Mt Airy Maternity : Lindsey & Rob

Lindsey & Steve are so excited for their little bundle to arrive and I was so happy to go out to their Mt Airy home to photograph these parents to be. Shortly after our shoot, little McKenzie arrived happy and healthy. Stayed tuned for her baby...

Elkridge Furnance Inn : Matt & Meredith

Small and simple is sometimes the best. Under blooming trees, besides a quiet creek, Matt and Meredith exchanged their vows. The intimate ceremony at the Elkridge Furnace Inn was perfect, witnessed and celebrated by their family. Best wishes for a lifetime of...

Country Club of Maryland Wedding : Gretchen & Matt

It was a wedding of multiples. A twin married a triplet! Gretchen & Matt might be the sweetest and most laid back couple. It was a great no-stress wedding day with a super fun group of friends that made up their bridal party. These two avid hikers incorporated their...

Maternity & Newborn Photography : Max

I got to see Christina & Craig's gorge new home with taking their maternity photos. It will be the most fun house to grow up- and good thing because not long after their session, Max joined the world and he is just a bundle of cuteness. Congratulations to the Wyatts...

Cromwell Valley Engagement : Abbey & Nick

Abbey & Nick coordinated so well for their engagement session a couple weeks ago at Cromwell Valley Park. Abbey reminds me so much of my best friend Holly that I kept having to remind myself that it wasn't her! Abbey & Nick are the sweetest couple- so I am letting it...

Baltimore Newborn and Family Photographer : Meet Kate

  Sweet Baby Kate. I am so happy I was able to photograph your mom, dad and crazy twin brothers last fall while you were still cooking and then again once you broke into this beautiful world. Good luck little lady and stay strong! &...

Patterson Park Family Photographer : Murray Family

Stacey bought a gift certificate for her parents back at Christmas and we finally got around to scheduling it last fall. What a great gift idea to give her parents! We were able to get every combination possible and still leave time for some fun ones too! What a great...

Timonium Lifestyle Newborn Photographer : Charlie

I was so excited to hear that Maggie was due with a little babe. I photographed Brad & Maggie's wedding a couple years ago and it was one of the most fun weddings. With my own little Charlie, how can you not love another one! Congratulations to this new little family...

Family Photography : Garappolo Family

We got a gorgeous day for the Garappolo's fall family session last year with all of the beautiful fall foliage and colors. Check out their session...

Fall Mini-Family Sessions : Towson, MD

A couple times a year I offer mini-sessions. It is a pretty amazing concept. Kids don't last long for photos so if you are just looking for a few amazing shots, mini-sessions are the way to go. 20 min long, we rock through them fast while the kiddos are still in great...

Baltimore Birth Photographer : Aedan

I have had 3 kiddos of my own but watching someone give birth is a completely different experience. I felt like wonder woman pushing my own kids out, but being witness to someone else, wow, just wow. Women are amazing. Theresa is my husband Mark's best friend and I...

Camden Yards Engagement : Jen & Dan

Back when the leaves were in their fall glory, I met up with Jen and Dan for their engagement session. They are big Orioles fans so we wandered around Camden Yards for a bit before finishing off in Federal Hill where they had just closed on their first home together....

Maternity : Keri & Blake

One of my good friends Keri is having a baby (and since I got bad at blogging over the winter, she had him and he is 4 months old already).. but back in November I got to capture her adorable belly. Blake's parents have this gorgeous farm on the Eastern Shore so it...

Inner Harbor Winter Engagement : Sienna & Josh

The blizzard of 2016 may have delayed this engagement session, but getting the chance to hang out with these two was worth the wait! Sienna & Josh are terrific together and made my job easy! I am looking forward to their Four Seasons wedding! The Inner Harbor is going...

Forrest Hill Newborn Photographer : Rory

I got to spend the morning with this amazing family that had just welcomed their second son, Rory. Big brother Calen was excited about his new brother and miraculously we got some photos of them together, which is no easy feat! Congratulations to this adorable little...

Hampton Mansion : Dickinson Family

I was so very excited to add this family to my calendar this year, my sister Megan and her family. My god-daughter Amelia was born last October so this year was the first time we got to do a family session for the fall. She is just turned 1 and is the biggest delight!...

Towson Family Photographer : Deremeik Family

This family is one of my favorites all year to photograph. It helps that it is my sister Annie and her family and I have had a camera in their faces their entire lives... they clearly know the drill. We met up one night at Hampton Mansion, my new favorite place to...

Silver Spring Newborn : Amelia

Amelia is one of the cutest little babes and I was so excited to be able to meet her a few weeks after she was born. Her parents, Caroline & Mike, are a MLP couple and I was so excited to see them again and help welcome their new addition to their...

Hampton Mansion Engagement: Kristyn & Tim

As fall was waning and holiday activity was picking up, I caught up with Kristyn and Tim at the Hampton Mansion for their engagement session. The weather was almost perfect... (OK, it was chilly)! Having the mansion and the grounds almost exclusively to ourselves was...

Jerusalem Mill Engagement : Jordan & Ryan

We have been fortunate to have some beautiful foliage this fall.  As it happened, Jordan and Ryan picked the absolute most perfect day to take their engagement photos!  I met up with them at Jerusalem Mill Village, which was basically "their back yard," since these...

Four Seasons Rooftop Proposal : Becca & Brandon

I always get the most nervous for proposals. I am always so afraid I am going to wreck the whole surprise. Brandon's proposal to his girlfriend Becca was pretty perfect though. He got down on one knee on the rooftop at the Four Seasons in Baltimore surprising her when...

Kate & Tony : Towson Golf & Country Club Wedding

Some day, Kate and Tony will tell their children how they fell in love as college athletes (with the love of the same sport). They will tell them about their amazing wedding, one chilly day in November. Then, they will show them these photos! The day started out with...

Wedding at Tabrizi’s : Carrie & Shawn

Carrie & Shawn's winter wedding turned out to be on a windy but gorgeous sunny day. Carrie was the perfect bride... laid back, care-free and just plain happy. Carrie & Shawn had their first look at Raven's Stadium, right in front of the Ray Lewis statue... a pretty...

Snowy Engagement : Emily & Ryan

Emily and Ryan are the sweetest couple and I was pumped to kick off my 2016 engagement sessions with them- so of course cue the blizzard and a snowy engagement session. They are getting married this coming spring at Emily's parents home so they wanted me to come out...

Joie & Nick : Turf Valley Wedding

Joie & Nick were the perfect couple to close out my 2015 wedding season, although I had just gotten over that miserable stomach bug and was running on vapors, I couldn't have gotten through it if it wasn't for this sweet couple. St Paul's School was the perfect...

Kate & Tony : Towson Golf & Country Club Wedding

Some day, Kate and Tony will tell their children how they fell in love as college athletes (with the love of the same sport). They will tell them about their amazing wedding, one chilly day in November. Then, they will show them these photos! The day started out with...

Nicholette & Ben : Backyard Barn Wedding

Nicholette... your dreamy. Enough said. Ben, your pretty handsome too! To say Ben knows everyone is an understatement, so who better to have a stellar party than a guy that knows everyone. There were so many touches that made their wedding so unique too. Ben &...
