001the first time that I ever visited the home of my friends, matt and frances, it occurred to me then that this would be a beautiful location for a wedding. many years have past since then and their property gets more gorgeous each time I’m there.. and that thought has always stuck with me. so earlier this year when frances asked me if I had the date open for her niece, clary’s, wedding, I looked and was thrilled that I was available. then I asked her where it was……. hooray!!! I was soon in touch with clary via email and we set up a date to not only meet at the farm to talk over where everything would be, but I would also photograph her and evan’s engagement session. after spending the afternoon with them, there venue didn’t even matter ~ I was just looking so forward to working with this awesome couple on their big day! clary is just such a lovely person and evan is hysterical.. plus they are huge dog lovers who wanted their pup, keeva, in most of their session. once wedding day arrived, kris and I met up at the farm and took our places alongside our bride and groom. the place was like a fairytale with lush tree canopies surrounding the ceremony site were clary and evan would promise forever to each other. once everyone gathered under the tent for the reception, the new mister and misses floated out onto the dance floor to share one of the most beautiful first dances we’ve ever seen ~ appropriate since dancing is such an important part of their love story. we couldn’t have been happier to share this day with all of you and wish you both all of the love and laughter in the world as you begin your life together.

1from the first time I met liz and greg, I was smitten with them. they are one of those couples who just click in a way that it kind of magical. they can be lost in a romantic moment and then seconds later, be silly and dissolve into giggles. I was so happy to hear that they had welcomed their son, robert, a year ago… today!! happy birthday little man :) but we hadn’t been able to get together until recently when they took their annual trip to the beaches of delaware.  I was thrilled to hear that greg’s family would be joining us as well – when I photographed their wedding 2 years ago, I came to know the hendlers and they are such wonderful people. as soon as I entered their condo, robert crawled over to me and up into my arms ~ a first, for sure! typically, the new girl with the glasses and big camera is viewed with skepticism.. at least for the first few minutes. but robert is such a confident and happy little boy and took it upon himself to take care of the introductions. and once we all got to the beach, it was so much fun photographing all of them as the sun dipped low in the sky. I had such a lovely evening and look so forward to working with all of you again soon! xoxo

1as summer turns into fall, I’ve been keeping the season alive here in the studio while editing some super fun family sessions from the last few weeks…. and it doesn’t get much more entertaining than the cornely family! from the first snap of big brother, quinn, as he went into lotus :) I knew that I was in for a treat. sister, olivia, was the wrangler of the bunch and such a wonderful little assistant. and the twins.. oh how I loved grady and sean! they were full of giggles, especially when together. the kids were visiting chincoteague with parents tanya and kieran, and were winding down their vacation when we got together for the session. everyone was exploring the marsh and the beach, finding sand crabs shells, displaying their treasures with excitement. once we got to the ocean side, there was an attempt to keep everyone dry as the family was going out for ice cream once we were done, but as soon as the kids got their feet in the water, all bets were off. I had such a fabulous time with all of you and look forward to your return to our little corner of the world.

001I’ve known this family my whole life – as kids, when I would come down to the shore to stay with my grandparents for the summer, wendy and cindy only lived two doors down and we grew up together. since moving back almost 16 years ago, things have changed a bit… marriages and kids and whole new families have happened. but I still live next door to matriarch, joanne, and right across the street from my childhood friend (#trifecta). I have photographed family photos, senior portraits, and even a back to school and prom photo with this bunch ~ but never a wedding. I first met bobby’s fiance’, yana, when I received a text from wendy several months ago.. it went a little something like this. ‘bobby and yana see atticus in your back yard and REALLY want to meet him!’  so I brought atti out front and soon an epic lovefest ensued :) more recently, I got another text from wendy informing that me yana’s mother was going to be visiting from russia and they wanted to get married while she was here. done! I couldn’t wait to spend such a happy day with all of them. it was a beautiful afternoon when I met up with everyone at the church – yana was so beautiful and her mother was clearly thrilled to be able to be here for their wedding. I am always so inspired to witness and capture the love of this big and beautiful family and to see they welcome yana as one of their own was so lovely. there are still 5 more of these kids that may get married down the road and I look forward to many more amazing days such as these. bobby and yana, I wish you so much love and happiness in your life together.. and a puppy, obviously a puppy! xoxo

001the first time I met tiffany and wes, it was at a dunkin’ donuts. we had made plans to get together while they were in town from pennsylvania to work on some wedding details. tiffany’s parents were with them as well and a meeting that would typically last about a half hour, became a hour long visit with new friends. they are my kind of couple… fun, creative, spontaneous, and silly in love. fast forward to wedding day, with many conversations in between, and it was exactly as I knew it would be ~ personal, heart felt, and lovely. as she got ready, tiffany (and her ladies), had to hold back tears several times… everyone was just so happy and excited and the day was perfect. before walking down the aisle, tiffany and wes exchanged cards while holding hands around a corner ~ keeping with traditional, but still having a moment that was just theirs. this was kind of the theme of the day.. spending time with the people that they loved, but also taking the time to stand back, take it all in, and be with each other – just the two of them. I am so grateful to have met such wonderful people and am so very happy for you! I wish you so much happiness, joy, and love in your life together xoxo
