Alexa was one of the very first brides to book me for 2017 and from her initial excited email i knew she was going to be an absolute pleasure and beauty to photograph -- and even that, i found out, was an understatement. a first coffee date spent gushing over her dress, countless emails with pictures of their dogs as a "PS", a frisbee- and netflix-reference-filled engagement session -- these two are incredible.
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!
Alexa and Mike, thank you for everything. i am humbled beyond words and i cannot express how much I love you two! happy sixth week of marriage!
(and thank you to the incredible Olivia Reed for being an amazing second shooter -- some of the images here are hers!)
