2017 year in review | portraits + lifestyle

Yesterday I recapped the amazing weddings and couples I photographed in 2017, but I couldn’t finish a reflection on the year without sharing images from all of the portraits and lifestyle work I was able to do. I love shooting portraits just as much as I love documenting weddings and I think it’s because in all of it, photography is an honest art that documents humans as they are. It never fails to amaze me how beautiful people are when they allow their hearts to shine through their eyes and smiles and I am so grateful I have been able to document those moments and capture these gorgeous souls in an image.

alexa + mike | rockfield manor wedding

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!

morgan + sarah + erin | post-coffee baltimore portraits

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.

katelyn + garrett | library of congress engagement

so excited to share these! Katelyn and Garrett are Baltimore people, tying the knot with a small ceremony in Annapolis in October, and suggested the Library of Congress for their engagement shoot last spring. so basically, they're incredible. if their soft kindness, quiet love, and gracious willingness to be goofy and laugh at my constant stream of babble throughout our shoot doesn't speak something about how beautiful they are inside and out -- y'all, they brought me a bag of Baltimore coffee, the "Umma" blend from Dooby's, because they know how much I love coffee and because they said it reminded them of "Emma". I LOVE THEM A LOT.

alma + mike | sotterley plantation wedding

Alma and Mike. I feel like a broken record every time I try to write something about these two but I just keep coming back to an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and love. It feels like I've known them my entire life when in reality it's only been about a year since we connected. From Alma's first enthusiastic email, I knew they were going to hold a special place in my heart.
