Myra and Jeff’s first engagement session was rained out. That is Maryland spring for you. But we lucked out with an overcast day for a lovely engagement shoot in the country. I love shooting close to home because I know these locations like the back of my hand. I love the textures of barns and fields and have a private residence that I can use anytime for styled shoots! Myra and Jeff are going to be a blast to shoot on their wedding day! They are one of those couples that have a sweet love between them. He adores her and she cherishes him. It is precious. This was Myra’s first ever professional photo shoot. She did her own makeup!!! I think she should go pro! I am going to have her do mine one day just for fun because I think she looks stunning everytime I see her (which I hope is more often since she is moving close to me). Marcie of Celebrating Love by Marcie styled the shoot for us with sneak peek elements of the styling she will be doing for their wedding in July. I love adding some styling and props to an engagement shoot for some flavor. We had a great time and I can’t wait for the wedding this summer!
Sometimes I get a little behind on blogging. Real life. I have had a past few weeks of non stop sessions and weddings and I am looking forward to next week’s peace and quiet 🙂 In the meantime, here is a preview of what is coming up on the blog.
Jason and Rebecca had a picture perfect Maryland wedding. They have been a super fun couple to photograph (see their engagement session) and Jason’s last name is my maiden name (our moms even have the same first name and now Rebecca has the same name as my sister before marriage- wild!). Crystal Chesapeake Bay sparkling in the background and guests enjoying cocktails on the deck of the Tavern Ballroom at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in perfect May weather. I loved Rebecca’s simple elegance throughout her decor choices from the deep purple paper items to the blue vanda orchids to the crepe rosettes on the bridesmaids dresses. She attached charms with photos of her dad to her shoes so he could walk her down the aisle (teary moment for me). She radiated happiness all day long and danced her heart out! Jason truly basked in Rebecca’s beauty and his adoration of her was evident all night. I love seeing couples truly in love!!! It just makes my day that much easier in documenting their best day!
Ryan & Corinne were married on a sunny, warm April weekend on the Chesapeake Bay. They had their first look in a grove of trees in front of the church. Ryan’s eyes said it all! Corinne was lovely in her gown (with her sparkling Sperry’s underneath). After a traditional ceremony, we headed to the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club for a grand reception in the Sunset Ballroom. Corinne and Ryan had so much fun together on their wedding day! They were always together and dancing! So fun to watch them enjoy their day. Check out all of the cool bicycle details from the invites, to the cake topper, to the seating chart/favors! I was looking forward to these details after we planned for some bicycle shots in their engagement shoot!
I also had the pleasure of Mary Brunst second shooting for the day which was so fun! Thank you, Mary, for your fun photos of Ryan and the guys before the ceremony.
