I met with Rachel and Rafael early morning at Black Hill Park where they enjoy taking walks with their dog, Apollo. In addition to having engagement photos taken together as a couple, it was important for them to include their beloved, furry pet into some of the shots so this location was perfect. The park was illuminated with warm, morning light and created a lovely glow upon this sweet family. Rachel and Rafael are high school sweethearts and I admired the fun and laughter they shared during the session! I look forward to capturing their wedding in the fall!
Pey and Leon had their wedding at the beautiful Running Hare Vineyard, which is one of the prettiest vineyards in the area! Besides being stunning (Pey reminds me of a Chinese movie star), the bride has a beautiful heart and it’s easy to see why Leon adores her so much, who’s not so bad, himself! The wedding was an intimate affair and it was touching to see the bride and groom mingle and laugh with all of their guests throughout the day. The newlyweds made a lovely speech during the reception expressing their thanks to those who came and for sharing this special day with them. Pey and Leon were a dream to work with, as they are both sweet, respectful, and easygoing. Congratulations to this wonderful couple!

Erin and Kevin’s wedding at the Corpus Christi and Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore was truly a memorable event for everyone involved. From the first day that I met Erin and Kevin, I admired the love and chemistry that they shared, despite having dated for many years! They reminded me of a young couple in a new relationship, full of freshness and excitement. I saw it again during their engagement session and of course, on their wedding day! Seeing their joy reflected in the photos remind me of why I love my job so much; I just can’t wait to share the photos with them soon and show them how beautiful they are when they look at one another! Without further ado, here are some of my favorite moments from Erin and Kevin’s wedding. They are beautiful both inside and out and it was truly a joy working with this sweet couple!

I had the pleasure of meeting Mary and Ken when Mary’s coworker, who is a former bride of mine, recommended my photography services to her for her upcoming wedding. Upon meeting them for the first time, Mary and Ken were sweet and and very easy to be around. Their eyes lit up as they talked about their relationship and their plans for the wedding. The day was beautiful for their engagement session and as they both love plants and flowers, Brookside Gardens provided a perfect backdrop for their portraits. I’m looking forward to documenting their wedding this upcoming weekend!
It was such a treat to meet up with Xu, Max, Jordan and Kayla for the third year in a row for their family photos! The kids grew up so much and they excitedly ran around on the field and happily threw rocks into the creek. This family has such a great dynamic and it was easy to see how much the parents adore their children, and vice versa! Here are a few of my favorite images from their 2016 family session!
