Rachel and Larry just welcomed their sweet baby boy Bentley into the world about 3 weeks ago. He couldn’t wait to see the world so he surprised everyone by arriving 6 weeks early! What was so amazing to me is that he stayed awake the entire shoot and did not fuss once! This is one easy going, happy baby! Bentley’s nursery is filled with the cutest whale decor from signs to sheets to stuffed animals. I loved how he spent so much timing looking at his Mom and Dad who are already the best parents!

Kim and Adam tied the knot at the beautiful Black Walnut Point Inn in Tilghman Island, Maryland with an intimate group of 13 immediate family members in attendance. It was a day to remember as we watched a looming summer storm roll over Tilghman Island! The day started out with an exchange of gifts and first looks with the girls and Kim’s Dad which brought out some happy tears. The ceremony took place under a flower covered arbor overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. The storm brought everyone inside for dinner but afterwards we had the most beautiful sunset peaking under the clouds! First dances took place under the sailcloth tent and the evening ended with sparklers and a dip in the pool!

I am so excited to share our beautiful World is Your Oyster styled shoot that took place last fall. Thank you to Coastal Bride for the amazing feature!

Our inspiration for this Eastern Shore elegance inspired shoot came from a newly restored dovetail skipjack, the Dorothy Lee. The beautiful lines, wood trim, and the way it glides along the water allowed us to base this editorial shoot around the boat and the classic waterfront settings on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The color palette used was a neutral palette infused with pops of blue and camel brown to accent the water and skipjack lines. The design concept was to create a beautiful feminine and southern feeling while keeping masculine undertones present with the rich colors. The tablescape was set as an intimate table for two using gorgeous camel colored leather chairs adorned with beautiful floral garland of garden roses and winter peonies. The vintage mother-of-pearl flatware helped keep the coastal-shore inspired feel and the varied brass candlesticks created a soft glow on the table. The whimsical stationary and airy, monogrammed dinner napkins completed the look.

The models wore complimentary pieces – the bride in a Kate McDonald wedding dress and the groom in a custom suit with a Brackish Bowtie. The bowtie paired perfectly with the colors and textures of the setting! It was also a wonderful touch to the Eastern Shore of Maryland and seemed to be sun-kissed as the couple boarded the skipjack for their sunset cruise.

The catering, by Buckeye Mountain Farms, was presented using local ingredients and served on a recreated oyster bar. Rich colors from the foods were used to plate each dish to perfectly match the setting. Thank you all of the amazing vendors for putting this shoot together!

I can’t believe it has been 4 years since I photographed Sarah and Kevin’s wedding in Virginia! It was so good to hear from them and about Sarah’s new private children’s therapy business. We started out at Sarah’s new office where everything was perfectly arranged with a sand table and lots of fun toys. Kevin joined us next for a walk around the Del Ray area of Alexandria, a picture perfect spot with lots of neat hand painted murals. Their pups Hercules and Ellie joined us at the end and were loving all of the attention!

Ellyn and Nick are one of the sweetest couples I had the pleasure of photographing last weekend in Old Town Alexandria! Some of their first dates were over coffee, sushi at Momo, and ice cream at Pop’s. For their engagement shoot, we hit some of these memorable spots and picked up some cherry ice cream along the way. These two are planning a wedding at the beautiful Carlyle Club located in the historic Alexandria. I can’t wait to see everything come together and the smiles on their faces come wedding day!

stevensville-maryland-eastern-shore-family-photography-photo_0042

The Funck Family all traveled from Pennsylvania to stay on the eastern shore at a gorgeous waterfront home by the Chesapeake Bay. All 7 cousins were having a blast spending time together on the private beaches, playground, and pool. For their family session, we broke off into groups to document each individual family and got some fun shots of the entire group. I just loved the rock walls and sandy beaches, perfect for finding sea glass. Towards the end I saw some guilty faces on the girls and realized they had bottles of silly string behind their backs! You can guess what happened from there!
