aj1last year I had the honor of traveling to charleston, south carolina for adrianne and jimmy’s intimate destination wedding. it was by far one of the most beautiful and memorable events that I’ve ever photographed – by the time I left to come back home, I felt as though I had been hugged tightly into this amazing family and it was wonderful. that alone would have been enough.. more than enough. but fortunately, adrianne and jimmy wanted to do it all again here on the shore so that they could include the many friends and family who weren’t able to make the journey south last fall. the room at fager’s was filling up quickly with all of their guests, some of whom hadn’t seen each other in ages and lovely little reunions were happening everywhere. as adrianne and jimmy entered the beautifully decorated space as the already-married-mr-and-mrs-oh, cheers and applause welcomed them. after a ‘renewing’ of their vows.. concentrating on the important stuff of marriage, you know.. like video games and shoe purchases, they made their way around the reception. the sun was setting and that famous fager’s view was so perfect for their portraits – I thought it was so cool to have these in addition to their charleston photos.. different, yet full of the same love and joy that radiated from them the day they were wed. I am so very happy that I was able to share in yet another special day of your journey together and to see your family and friends again was so awesome.. especially mama charlene :) I wish you so much love and happiness and am so grateful to call you friends – love you!

anytime any of my clients say that they want to include their dogs in their session, I am always very pleased. in the case of sarah and kevin, there were three adorable pups who were joining in :) I met them all at their home which is also where the wedding is going to be held next month. after having a ‘getting-to-know’ you meet and greet with their dogs (their pomeranian, gizmo, immediately became my new best friend), we headed out to their gorgeous back yard. sometimes photographing multiple pets can be a challenge, but these three were so awesome. and sarah and kevin.. they are so much fun! they clearly have such a great time together and had me laughing the whole time. there are even some pictures, which are being saved for wedding day, that are some of the most original and hysterical I’ve ever shot. sarah and kevin’s love, humor, and enthusiasm are infectious and I know that their wedding is going to be such a wonderful day – I can’t wait to see them all again soon!

1this time of year, you never know what the weather is going to do.. and unlike other couples where rescheduling isn’t too much of a problem, with kate and nelson, we had a small window. both kate and nelson are from the eastern shore and have known each other forever. they both attended the salisbury school but went separate ways for college.. years later, while both were home, sparks flew and they’ve been together ever since. currently they are living in kentucky but are getting married here, at the ocean pines yacht club this december, and this was one of the few visits to maryland that they were making before the big day. fortunately, the day was beautiful, a little windy.. but the sun was shining and kate and nelson had so many great locations in their mind for the session. I like to think that I know a majority of the back roads and tucked away spots along the shore, but they took me to some of the prettiest places I’ve ever seen. I had such a great time getting to know them both better as we walked from place to place.. they are such a cute couple and clearly adore each other. I am so excited to see them again and so happy to be a part of their journey to becoming husband and wife!
