the 2010 season has brought me SO many blessings – amazing experiences, travel opportunities and couples like jenny & josh. when we met for their e-session at the national aquarium I knew that working with them on wedding day would be so much fun. and they also introduced me to my favorite new venue of the year – the peabody library. gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous – that’s all I can say! and when kristie and I got to the hotel to meet up with jenny, she was getting gorgeous herself – every detail was beautiful and her girls were so nice – we immediately felt like old friends.

I met up with sarah & tom on a picture perfect fall afternoon at her parent’s house. I knew by the winding roads I drove while approaching their house that this was going to be an idyllic location – and it surpassed my expectations! absolutely gorgeous – a weathered barn, a stream, rolling fields and trees ablaze with autumn color…. heaven. tom & sarah are pretty gorgeous too! AND  (those of you who know me, know how excited this makes me) they had their dog – berkely. this dog was made to strike a pose. at only a year and a half, he took direction SO well and was so much fun!

rachel and joe were married on a beautiful day on assateague island. surrounded by friends and family they celebrated in an intimate ceremony by the ocean. the ponys were everywhere – much to rachel & joe’s joy. they work with horses and it was the ponys that attracted them to an assateague wedding. the weather couldn’t have been more gorgeous – or the couple!

normally when I blog about a wedding I tell the story of the day from beginning to end and introduce you to the couple – and I will. because this is a couple of overflowing love and unwaivering devotion and everyone should learn just how amazing they are. but for now, I just wanted photos online for them and their families. helana, walt, sarina, jackie & sam – I’m sending you so much love and many many prayers.

I’ve been hannah’s official paparazzi ever since her mom stephanie’s maternity session – and this year her cousin caden was able to join our session. to see hannah’s beach session from last year click here. well as usual, hannah was adorable and SO easy to work with, plus having the addition of parents steph & jeff, aunt teri and caden – we had a blast! the friendships that I’ve had with all of these wonderful people is the top reason I love what I do. I shot steph & jeff’s wedding a week before I got married and they became have remained amazing friends. I feel so blessed not only to form such incredible relationships with my client’s but also documenting them as their lives and families grow!

to say this wedding was amazing and fun is an understatement – I even attended the after party – holla! alicyn and doug are just an incredible couple and truly best friends. you could feel it all day as she was getting ready in the bridal suite of the fountains to when I snuck away for a bit with the guys to create a special surpise for alicyn. they were both giddy & smiling all day & night!

the guys and I raced down to the salisbury mall to shoot a reservoir dogs-esque photo that was later printed and given to alicyn at the reception – how cool is that?

I usually don’t do engagement sessions on 2 different days, but given what our schedules were jen, brad & I decided to do half of their session on the beach when they were down here last month and then in baltimore when I was up there. to see their beach session click here I already knew that they were great to work with and a lot of fun to hang out with. baltimore was no different – it was even better! we started off at fells point and then drove up to the washington monument – supposedly closed, but we found an open gate – sshhh don’t tell.

I knew that I really liked lindsey the first time we met – not only is she a fellow upstater (as I explained in their e-session post) but she was just laid back and easy going – plus we met at bay country bakery – yum! then when I met tom at the e-session, I knew their wedding would be a blast! these two love having fun together and it’s very obvious that there life together will be filled with much laughter! because see, during this wedding – not only was I blessed to have an amazing couple, venue (the fabulous easton club) & weather – but I also manually transported golf carts and got pumpkins thrown at me – yep… it was THAT kind of wedding!!! the kind I love

0051

lindsey has the most gorgeous eyes – I could spend a whole day photographing her!

this is the cart we moved to a better spot – it took me, 2 bridesmaids and lindsey herself to get it where we wanted it. liv took some photos of this happening – much to my chagrin :) she loves taking photos of me when I least expect becaue she knows I hate it!

0782

any time I see happy & emotional tears start to happen I am all over it! always gets me misty

married!

so here’s where the pumpkins come in – if you live on the shore, you’re probably familiar with punkin’ chunkin’ – well this whole crew goes together each year, so lindsey & tom brought small pumpkins for them to do a few photos with – great idea!

2551

and then me, being the genius that I am suggested “why don’t you throw them for a few?” these are the shots where you focus in, count down, close your eyes and start shooting!

I loved spending the day with you, your friends and family – it was such a great day! and trust me, I will being calling you to poke fun at the local school districts when they close down for an inch of snow this winter. puh-leeze!!!

within 5 minutes of getting to kate’s room, there were tears. not stressed out tears, not “my flowers are the wrong color” tears, but the tears I love to see on wedding day – tears that signify the love, excitement and importance of this day. see liv and I got our gear in and then a card was presented to kate from mike. as she opened it, she laughed at the cover  and the beginning read that he wasn’t a man of many words – but that’s all I know of the letter. what I do know is that were a lot of other words – words of love that brought kate to tears and I knew how special this day would be.

fall at green hill country club is always a beautiful setting – but add an amazing couple on their wedding day with all of their friends and family and it becomes magical. ever since witnessing the love & chemistry between ellie and matt during their e-session at pemberton park, I couldn’t wait to work with them on the big day. as I spent time with both of them while they were getting ready, the excitement was electric.

green hill is always great about making multiple golf carts available for the bridal party so that we can explore the grounds for great locations to shoot. it was so much fun with everyone in a convoy and it almost became a game of bumper cars!
