An Unbelievable Annapolis Engagement Session

Christa & Grant

There's something special about sunrise engagement sessions! I don't know if it's the way the world looks or what, but sunrise may be my new favorite photo time. Everything seems so soft and airy. Pair that with the Annapolis waterfront and - my goodness - it's Heaven! I think it's safe to say that Christa and Grant are phenomenal. Not only did they drive an hour for their session, but they were so full of energy for their engagement. They had no problems walking around Downtown Annapolis just exploring. The best part is that they were just as amped over cute doors as I am, haha! The true test of a BCP couple is being excited over interesting buildings and cobblestone ❤️. Every second of the morning spent with Christa and Grant was fun. Interestingly, they had never been to Annapolis before, so Shawn and I also got to be mini tour guides. We took them around Ego Alley, Main Street, the State House. We even saw Larry Hogan out in his yard walking - our very own Maryland celebrity sighting 😛. I'm so glad that Christa and Grant were staying in Annapolis for a little bit after the session, because it's so full of amazing things to see. One thing that is easy to say about these two is how they have such a wonderful spirit. About a week before the session, Christa emailed me saying how it might rain, but that they didn't want to reschedule, and were...

A Fall Wedding at the Annapolis Court House

Savanah & Douglas

Why does it feel like the leaves are just now changing? It's the middle of November, and we are now experiencing all of the beautiful yellow and orange trees. I'm honestly kind of glad it was delayed. It meant that the colors were in full effect for Savanah and Douglas's wedding at the Annapolis Court House. The perfect sunny glow lighting through the brancehs at the Maryland State House left me speechless more than a few times during portraits, haha! One of the many things I loved about Savanah and Douglas's wedding was how they injected tradition into it. Most couples think that by having their wedding at the court house, they can't do a lot of the things that take place at any other wedding. They feel they have to sacrifice bits and pieces of their dream day, but in reality, they don't. Savanah and Douglas proved that on their big day. Everything from their first look, to Savanah's walk down the aisle made their day one of a kind. They had a vision and they didn't fit their day into the typical elopement frame, which made us love them even more. This year has been such a joy in getting to know our couples. We get to experience one of the sweetest moments in a relationship and photograph it to keep memories forever! Even though we didn't get to spend as much time with Savanah and Douglas during the day, their love for each other shines. Just...

Sunrise and Capitals in this Downtown Annapolis Engagement

Emily & Matt

My love for Downtown Annapolis truly knows no bounds. Every time we meet a couple that says they live for the waterfront views, cute houses, and friendly people, I know that couple is stellar. Anyone with the dedication to do a photoshoot at sunrise (my preferred time for city sessions) is amazing. But these two are real trophy winners for waking up before sunrise, right after celebrating the Caps Stanley Cup win. The funny thing is, I actually met these two (along with Emily's mom) by total chance. Back in April, I was taking a tour of Main Street Ballroom to for the Big Fake Wedding. While touring it with two other vendors (Rachel Kendall Events and Flour De Casa), one of the site coordinators pulled me aside. She said a future Main Street couple had some questions. Enter: Emily and Matt. There was a level of comfort that I felt immediately when we all started chatting. The conversation flowed so naturally, and when I got home, I was greeted with an email from Emily asking me to be their wedding photographer! I still feel a multitude of emotions, but the one that takes up the most room is joy. Joy in getting being there for their big day, and joy that we made the random connection that we did. During their session we talked more about their wedding details, their love of the Washington Capitals, and the houses we would buy if we won the lottery. I'm pretty sure...

Kristy & Jonathan

An Annapolis Waterfront Engagement

I had been looking forward to Kristy and Jonathan's engagement session since we first started planning it in June. We had some trouble finding a date that worked for everyone, but when we finally were able to meet, it ended up being one of the most beautiful days of the summer. Their session kicked off at St. John's College, which was an amazing location with tons of intimate and romantic spots. From there, we wandered around the streets of Annapolis taking advantage of the gardens and all the cute side streets. Kristy and Jonathan are a really amazing couple. They are so laid back and - as everyone will see - adorable together! They have such fun personalities, which became really apparent when Jonathan changed into a button-up taco shirt. How fantastic is that? Their engagement session got Shawn and I even more pumped for their September wedding. They were discussing some of the details with us during our downtown stroll and I just know it's going to be a wonderful day!   ...

Katelyn & Zach

An Intimate Annapolis Court House Wedding

We have been so excited and ready for Katelyn and Zach's wedding at the Annapolis Court House. We worked with this couple before with family portraits a couple years ago, and have been looking forward to their wedding ever since. It was wonderful being able to see them again, and meet the rest of their family. Their wedding was small and intimate, with just the immediate family in attendance. That didn't make the day any less exciting for these two, though. Both of them were just as nervous as every other couple. Emma, their daughter, was especially adorable and seemed to be just as excited for them. She handled the responsibility of standing up next to them during the ceremony, and was sure to never stop grinning. You could tell how much she loves Katelyn and how happy she is for her dad. The sweet and concise ceremony packed in a lot of emotion, while providing lots of time for the celebration afterwards. Before they went off to Sorrento's with their family, though, we took the couple and Emma to the Maryland State House. They have such an aura of calm around them, which was the perfect style for the day. It almost felt like we were just spending a warm day in Annapolis with friends. Getting to share this experience was a wonderful change of pace from our normally hectic and exhausting weddings. This day was no exception to reminding me how much I love taking photos in Annapolis...

Tori & Mason Historic Ogle Hall

Wedding Photographers in Annapolis, Maryland

Where do I even start with Tori and Mason's wedding day?! It was gorgeous, intimate, and full of silly moments all around Annapolis. I kind of feel like we took an amazing tour of downtown Annapolis from Calvert House, to Historic Ogle Hall, to Blackwall Hitch. We saw it all with Tori and Mason, and it was the best day ever! Tori and Mason's wedding fit them SO well! It was calm, personal, and beautiful. Their officiant was Mason's brother, their guest list was close family, and their reception dinner was filled with inside jokes. These two light up a room with the way they look at each other, one glance their way and you can tell they are the most amazing complement to each other. They both are hysterical, caring, and have interesting passions that can spark a million conversations (seriously, Mason's history knowledge is INSANE - in a good way). Seeing everyone shower them with so much love was incredible.  Being able to witness and photograph Tori and Mason's wedding is something I've looked forward to since last August. I talked a little bit about it in their engagement blog post, but Tori and I have been friends since high school. Being able to see one of my oldest and dearest friends find her perfect person sends me right over the moon. We will forever be cheering on their marriage, and looking forward to watching this next chapter of their lives! And to Tori and Mason, we...

Becca & Cassin Sherwood Forest Clubhouse

Wedding Photographers in Annapolis

Becca and Cassin are married! We couldn't be any more excited for these two! From the second we met for their engagement session, we knew they were calming, fun, and dog lovers :P! Basically a mix of all of our favorite personality types, haha! For their engagement session, we got the chance to photograph around their wedding venue. It was so great to see the area with these two before their wedding, and even better ON their wedding. These two really outdid themselves with the style and design of their day. Becca and her mom did a lot of the designing of both the ceremony and reception spaces. Each space had a classic forest vibe, and with the sunshine coming in during their ceremony...Oh my goodness, gloriousness! Every element was so well thought out. From the venue to the reception music, this day was 100% Becca and Cassin.  We loved getting to spend the day with Becca and Cassin. Seeing them celebrate with their family and friends is really what made the day that much greater. I kid you not, their dance floor was filled from beginning to end. They couldn't have asked for a more perfect day, and we are so happy we got to witness it! Thank you so much, Becca and Cassin, you two are phenomenal, and we hope you're having an AMAZING time in Jamaica! Some amazing highlights from the day! Becca said that the second she saw the chandeliers in the ceremony space...

Kati & Chris

A Stunning Engagement in Annapolis, Maryland

We met up with Kati and Chris on a cool November morning at St. John's College in Annapolis. Though it was a sunrise session, these two showed up with bright smiles and a wonderful positive glow around them. They also brought along their sweet goldendoodle, Dempsey, who is so goofy and charming that you cannot help but laugh when you see him. We were just into the first few minutes of the session when the cops came and hauled us off to campus jail... Just kidding! Although we did have to take Dempsey off campus grounds, the security guard was totally nice about it and even hung around for a little to talk to us about how adorable dogs are. (Shout out to that awesome guy!) Once we stepped off campus, Dempsey he made his triumphantly adorable return for the rest of the session :). Shawn and I loved wandering around downtown with these three, chatting about how nice of a day it was and about their proposal. Kati and Chris showed us just how crazy their height difference with a reenactment of Chris on one knee (so funny!). We made stops at the State House, Ego Alley, and then the William Paca House and Gardens. There was some construction  going on out front of the house, which meant that the workers on this fall day got a nice little glimpse of romance, haha. Kati and Chris are so cute and fit together so well that they look...

A Naval Academy Engagement You'll Absolutely Love

Eliza & Taylor

Even though the summer is coming to a close, the amazing engagement sessions are just starting! Sunday morning we met up with Eliza and Taylor in Annapolis. The morning was bright and the air was cool. It was arguably the best August morning ever. Eliza and Taylor were incredibly charming the second we met up with them. They came relaxed and ready to have an incredible session. Conversation came easily and was very revitalizing despite having to wake up before the sun even started to appear. We never miss an opportunity to be out by the water for our Annapolis engagement sessions. But we always longingly look at the great waterfront rocks over in the Naval Academy. Shawn and I have just never had the opportunity to go past security to have a session there, but Eliza and Taylor were the perfect ones to explore with. Taylor is a Marine and Eliza's brother goes to the Naval Academy, so they both had a ton of knowledge about the area and various interesting facts. It felt like a tour with some friends in addition to a session! There were so many spectacular places at the Naval Academy, including a gorgeous fountain, lots of greenery, and some very awe-inspiring buildings. We even experienced reveille as the academy began its Sunday. Afterwards, we took a trip outside to downtown Annapolis and the Statehouse for some more great photos. These two didn't need any instruction on how to pose, and were like pros as...
