Kim & Jason TTD

Well, since Facebook has taken over and the blog has been neglected, I think I am down to like 8 readers.  And since Kim and Jason are two of those frustrated, neglected souls, the least I can do is post photos of them from their Trash the Dress session yesterday.  It was Africa hot yesterday, but we got some gret stuff and had some good laughs getting it.

One of the first shots of the afternoon:

We stopped at Rita’s for some cool refreshment and caught the attention of management, who came outside to take their own photos to send to corporate.  We each walked away with smiles and free Rita’s in hand.  THANK YOU to the girls at the Odenton Rita’s!!

Then we stopped at an unnamed rival school that boasts a pretty sweet field and took some fun pics:

And just in case we forget which anniversary we are celebrating:

Then it was off to Ben Oaks, where Kim & Jason had their first kiss.  DSC_0504

 

Then Kim really wanted a water shot, but she was a little afraid of crabs.  Here’s what happens when she suspects a crab is underfoot:

And I got this great shot of just Kim at the beginning of the night:

I had a great time, you two.  Love you both!

Steve & Shelane’s TTD

I have known Shelane for, gosh…13 years?  She was a bright-eyed, sweet girl when I first met her…her dad & I worked together at the Picture People back in the day.  He taught me a lot about shooting weddings, and I have both her parents to thank for thinking outside of the retail-studio box.  But back to Shelane…she has since grown up, become an outstanding teacher, and married her high school sweetheart.  She & Steve are celebrating thier 5 year anniversary in a few weeks, so in honor of that, we did a Trash the Dress session at Patapsco Valley State Park.  What a great way to get back to work after vacation!  This is one of my favorite images of the day…the light was just yummy…

There was a lot of giggling going on…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We headed up the Cascade Falls Trail, and got some very romantic stuff…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shelane was up for anything, so we totally soaked her and got some real sexy stuff…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you guys so much for indulging me…you were awesome! 

 

Kendra & Brian’s TTD

Brian & Kendra celebrated thier 5 year anniversary this past winter, so as a belated gift, Kendra arranged for a Trash the Dress session.  We had great weather, and gorgeous light Wednesday night, and we got some amazing shots.  It is days like this that renew my love for my job!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There was an awful lot of kissing going on…but it made for great photos! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is that light great or what?!  And I guess my subjects were pretty okay, too…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then we headed over to a little fishing/swimming hole for some water shots.  Brian figured, if we were getting wet, we should REALLY get wet…love Kendra’s reaction:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is where we start the ‘bow-wow-chicka-bow-wow” music in the background:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You guys were great, and you should know that these are only the beginning.  And shout-out to all of you with dresses collecting dust in your closet…get it out, and lets get to work!!  Too much fun!
