Clara & Alec Liriodendron Mansion

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

Oh my goodness! This wedding season has been amazing. On Saturday we got to celebrate Clara and Alec in Bel Air at the Liriodendron Mansion, which just so happens to be one of our favorite venues! The architecture is amazing, there's a stunning staircase, and the sunsets are perfection. Honestly, it's just gorgeous all the time, no matter what!  I feel like we have been waiting for Clara and Alec's wedding day for forever! It's been over a year since their beautiful engagement session, and, to be real, I was ready for their wedding the second we got to the first location. These two are so incredibly sweet, hilarious, and easy to get along with. They have an incredible sense of humor that Clara's dad described as "unique", which really makes us adore them even more. They aren't afraid to be weird together, and if that's not the foundation of a great relationship - I don't what is, haha!  Their wedding day was filled with such a brilliant amount of happiness. Clara's bridesmaids kept her laughing and enjoying every moment, while Alec's guys chilled and chatted to keep Alec calm (they also struggled with the boutonnière a little :P). There were so many amazing moments during the day, including a serenade from one of Alec's groomsman and the private last dance just between the newlyweds. We loved every single second of their day, and are so honored that we got to capture it all for them...

Becca & Cassin Sherwood Forest

Engagement Photographers in Maryland

There are some session locations that feel straight out of a movie. Becca and Cassin's engagement happens to be one of those! Not only did they choose a sentimental location (Cassin's and his mom moved to Sherwood when Cassin was in high school), but they also picked one that is so friggin' gorgeous! Sherwood Forest is a community unlike any other. It's kind of like stepping back in time. There's summer living cabins, camp activities, their own postal service. It's truly idyllic. So knowing that this is also where Becca and Cassin are getting married, we did a [secret] little happy dance :P. Something important about Becca and Cassin: they are extremely easy-going. They were a little nervous before we started the session, but, man, their total relaxed nature made it easy to jump in and feel comfortable. They had fun with the poses, with each other, and NEVER showed those nerves. I kind of also attribute the lack of nerves to the golf cart ride chats between spots. We all got to know each other as individuals a bit better, which naturally will create a very comfy environment.  We cannot wait until September when we get to see these two again and celebrate their wedding. It's going to be a gorgeous day. I maybe, kind of, a little bit was freaking out when we got to peek through the windows of the ceremony and reception space. SO PRETTY! I have small problem containing my "too much" gene...

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...

Tori & Mason Kinder Farm Park

Engagement Photographers in Maryland

I. Am. Beyond. Obsessed! Tori and Mason's session at Kinder Farm Park is easily one of my favorites. Not only are these two friggin' cute together, but Tori is also one of my dearest friends. We've known each other since high school, which, for those of you who require numbers, is 10+ years. It's always such an honor to photograph any couple's wedding, but when it's friend's, there's a little extra magic involved. We absolutely adore Mason and Tori. They fit together so incredibly well, and it's no surprise that they are each other's match. There's something about the two of them that just makes you feel really comfortable. You can see it clearly in the photos, they are people you want and need to be friends with.  Their story is unique with the two of them meeting because of a study that Tori was conducting for grad school on twins (Mason and his brother were one..two? of her subjects). What followed were very long date nights and loads of romantic comedy moments. If it sounds like a movie that's because it should be, haha! There's going to be nothing better than seeing these two on their wedding day and witnessing one of their biggest moments together. Shawn and I are honored to be their photographers, but we're even more honored to know Tori and Mason, and call them friends. UGH! I've got to save some of this sap for the wedding blog! Enjoy their Kinder Farm Park...

Rachel & Jake Dulany's Overlook

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

This summer has just gotten even more amazing with Rachel and Jake's wedding at Dulany's Overlook. You can't ask for a more beautiful venue than Dulany's Overlook for ANY wedding season. It's really a perfect location, with a stunning view and so many photo spots. Honestly, I feel like whenever we return, there's a new place to discover and photograph! One things for sure: Rachel and Jake chose an amazing venue to kick off this next chapter of their life. We pretty much fell in love with Rachel and Jake from our first phone call. It was evident right from the beginning that they are calm, go-getters, and incredibly sweet. They have a fabulous relationship that we got to see at their engagement shoot. Then, on the wedding day, we got to experience and hear from the people that they hold near and dear to them. There was nothing but love for Jake and Rachel. From their Ketubah that was hand painted by Jake's mom, to their Rabbis who were all close friends, every piece of the day was filled with such deep appreciation and heart.  It's been an absolute joy getting to know Rachel and Jake. Reliving all of the moments from their wedding has been a major "WOW" time. My favorite moment? When the Captain Cookie truck pulled up immediately following our sunset photos. I've never seen a longer line form so quickly for ice cream sandwiches! Of course the ice cream sandwiches weren't my ONLY...

Rachel & Jake Rock Creek Park

Engagement Photographers in Maryland

I am so excited to share Rachel and Jake's engagement session! In June we met up at Rock Creek Park in Washington DC for a gorgeous evening. This park is so cool. There's so many different mill areas, hidden monuments, and a beautiful river. It's an amazing spot that I'm really happy Rachel and Jake introduced us to.  We have been looking forward to meeting Rachel and Jake for months. We actually had an earlier session date scheduled, but with the crazy weather of Maryland, it got pushed back. Thankfully, the end of June was much better with its rain and we were able to FINALLY meet. These two are as sweet and kind as we imagined they would be. They are so easy to chat with! Strolling around Rock Creek Park with them we got to know them so much better, which as everyone knows, is the reason we love engagement shoots! Now that we are in the wedding month for Rachel and Jake, I am so happy to share their engagement session and kick up the celebrating to a new level! This time next week, Rachel and Jake will be Mr. & Mrs. and I for one, cannot wait! Cheers to the wedding countdown <3. Enjoy their Rock Creek Park Engagement ...

Stephanie & Marko's Rocklands Farm Wedding

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

Summer is here and the weddings are STUNNING! We cannot contain our excitement over Stephanie and Marko's Rocklands Farm wedding! The weather was sheer perfection, and these two were a treat to hang out with!  One of our favorite moments from Stephanie and Marko's day was, hands down, their first look. I think it must be the anticipation that makes every first look unique and fun. There's the waiting, the nerves, the reveal, and finally the moment you get to see each other. It's a rush of emotions at that very moment that make a first look so special. The second that Marko saw Stephanie, the smile on his face was ginourmous. He was so giddy and excited, and we couldn't help but have this reaction affect us similarly. We cannot thank these two enough for allowing us to capture their long awaited day. These two have been together for 8 years, and it was mentioned on more than one occasion how their union was a long time coming. We feel so honored to have been their photographers. They've already been building a spectacular life together, and we hope this latest chapter is their best one yet! Cheers to Marko and Stephanie!  Enjoy their Rocklands Farms wedding! Vendors that made this day AH-MAZING!

Becca & Will's Baltimore City Wedding

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

So we've been waiting for Becca and Will's wedding for what feels like forever. We knew it was going to have all of our favorite things: Will and Becca, Baltimore City, and cotton candy. Is there anything more you actually need? Everything from their ceremony at St. Joseph's Monastery Parish, a church that is extremely special to Becca, to their intimate reception at La Cuchara was fantastic. There was so much friendship and love. Honestly, their day could be the poster for wedding happiness. From our first meeting with Will and Becca, we had a feeling their day would be spectacular. We chatted about food, New York, and....Dungeons and Dragons. I would say the second Will asked us about D&D is the moment we realized these two were going to be a very special couple to us. Since our initial meeting, we have all become for real friends. Sounds weird to say "for real" but our hope with all of our couples is that we legitimately get the chance to hang out and have fun outside of "business". Will and Becca have shown us it can happen, and that come wedding time, we are friends watching friends get married instead of photographer and client. AND we even have the honor of being Becca's first D&D group :P.  Will and Becca have a very special relationship. They complete each other in a way that people don't often get to see. Both of them...

Tony & Rafaela's Springfield Manor Wedding

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

So when the weather says all day rain, what that means in Maryland is that there is a 10% chance of rain for exactly 2 hours. Tony and Rafaela's day will forever be a memorable one. From the tornado watch, to Tony's face FULLY going into the cake, it is a day that we will not forget. Pulling up to the venue, Springfield Manor, with a light drizzle and a light breeze, we knew it was going to be a great wedding. Regardless of what the weather said, we knew the day would be unique.  We've known Tony and his family for almost 5 years now. His sister, Christina, found us in 2014, and ever since that first email in March, we have been welcomed into such a miraculous family. We adore them so much, and they feel so much like our own family. So when Tony reached out about photographing his wedding. Oh my goodness, I started crying happy tears over JUST the engagement! Once I got myself together, I knew there was nothing in this world that would keep Shawn and I from Tony and Rafaela's wedding day. What a completely spectacular day. Like I mentioned, it was supposed to rain the entire day, but that didn't end up happening. About 30 minutes before the ceremony, the rain stopped and then sun peeked out for a little bit. Everything Tony and Rafaela had been dreaming of for their wedding went off without a hitch! They even got...
