Joe & Wendy Tie the Knot

I’m going to back track to my last wedding of 2008…Joe & Wendy.  I had forgotten how beautiful their photos were!  It was a rainy Saturday (which no bride wants to wake up to), but with an afternoon wedding, the sky had a chance to do a little clearing.  The ceremony was on the shore in Easton, and I grabbed these first two post-ceremony:

I think this one has a magazine feel to it…

Thank you guys SOoo much…you were AWESOME!

Greg & JJ Tie the Knot!

These two are so much fun…and the day of their wedding finally arrived!  JJ looked amazing, and was all smiles all day.  Here she is in the limo headed to the church (note the reflections of her mom, mother in law, and step-daughter in the window):

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Greg was super-handsome in his tux:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ceremony at Baldwin Memorial United Methodist Church was so nice.  Here they are outside the church:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Greg and his guys goofing off after the ceremony:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The reception at Celebrations on the Bay was great…the tent looked great thanks to the amazing flowers done by a friend of JJ’s mom and the aqua water glasses…nice details…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Greg’s daughter, Kayla, gave a toast that had everyone in the whole place crying.  She is wise beyond her 11 years…what a sweet girl.  This is JJ’s reaction to Kayla saying how much she loved her and how she couldn’t be more excited about finally having her in their family…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the new look of the Smith family:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And Mr. Jared sure knows how do drop the moves on the dance floor…look at the guy on the left in awe of the coolness…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here is my ring shot…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you guys so much for choosing me to capture your big day!  The wedding was so much fun…you have an awesome family, and a great group of friends.  Here’s to a lifetime of smiles…

 

Ernie & Amanda’s Wedding

It was a beautiful day for a wedding…plenty of sun, plenty of friends, and plenty of fun!  Here they are after the ceremony:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ernie’s grand-dad and his friends had a collection of antique cars to escort the bridal party to the reception…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They tried the ol’ switcheroo when they cut the cake and got thr brida party instead of eachother:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But ended up getting it on each other anyway…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dance floor was packed all night…can you guess what was playing when I took this one?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ernie works for Rusty, so we wanted to be sure to get an HRMotorcars staff shot (while everyone was clean and handsome) 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for including me in your big day!  It was great!

 

 

 

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!

 

Stephen & Carmen’s Wedding

I have known Stephen since, forever, I guess.  He and Carmen dated back in high school, but they went their seperate ways, married other people and had families.  Both have found themselves single again, and ended up finding eachother again, and they tied the knot yesterday!  Carmen looked gorgeous, and Stephen most handsome (despite the 100 degree heat in a three piece suit).  Here they are after the ceremony:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a very intimate wedding, which I thought was lovely.  And the great thing about a small group is being able to get a photo of everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had some time to get some nice romantic shots after the ceremony.  This is one of my favorites:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a girl after my own heart…couldn’t wait to get into the chocolate cake!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you guys so much for having me!  Here’s to happily ever after…

 

Sweet Treats

I have been working on and off (mostly off) for almost 10 months trying to get an album made for Brock & Anne Hale.  It has been a long road, but their beautiful, stainless steel covered album arrived Wednesday.  Anne came this morning to pick it up, and as a thank you, brought me four decadent cupcakes from The Baltimore Cupcake Company.  Take a look at these works of art:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The flavors are (from top left clockwise): Very Strawberry, Mermaid Margarita, Cookies & Cream & Kaluah & Cream.  Anne says I have to eat them today, I mean, my family should help me eat them today, because they won’t be the same tomorrow.  I can report that Very Strawberry is resting comfortably in my tummy…it was delish!  Wow…I hope the others make it til everyone else gets home!   But check out the website…there is a different line up of flavors every day of the week! 

Be sure to check them out if you are in the Fort Ave neighborhood!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And thank you, Anne, for such a sweet treat!  🙂
