i clicked with these two the second they walked into our first coffee date at Red Emma's in Baltimore. and when they suggested Rawlings Conservatory for their engagement session, i'm pretty sure i jumped up and down.
Casey is an incredible photographer in DC and we spent a morning last spring drinking coffee at Grace Street (because duh, of course our shoot started with coffee) and wandering through Georgetown capturing some images of her gorgeous self. casey, you are beyond stunning and i am so happy i got to photograph you! thanks for an amazing morning!
an hour of torrential downpour on their wedding day didn't even make them blink; Alexa and Mike are truly some of the most laid-back, kindhearted, genuine people i've ever met. their wedding day at Rockfield Manor in Bel Air, MD was an honor and joy to photograph. from a beautiful first look in gorgeous just-before-the-storm light to a Jewish tradition-filled ceremony and reception with loved ones close by, from a homemade ice cream bar to crazy and hilarious hours of dancing -- i had an absolute blast!
i absolutely loved getting to hang out with these two for a couple of hours on a Saturday evening in July, taking photos on the beautiful water in Pasadena, MD to celebrate their engagement and sticking around afterwards to photograph a little of their party at Sunset Cove with their close family and friends (complete with alllllll the cute decorations!). proposals never fail to get my heart racing and make me feel like a super ninja photographer, and the moments after are seriously some of the sweetest i've ever seen. thank you, Brandon and Courtney, for allowing me to be a part of such a special moment in your story!
if you've followed me a while, you probably know that i sometimes enjoy the beverage known as "coffee". these three ladies also sometimes enjoy said beverage and happen to be incredible photographers. after months of running into each other all at the same time at one Baltimore coffee shop or another, we decided to actually plan to get together last week. obviously, coffee was involved (Artifact Coffee, one of my favorites!), as was a photo spree afterwards in the beautiful Clipper Mill neighborhood next to Woodberry Kitchen.
