Stories From Behind The Lens

Emily contacted me a simple request “We need family photos of us and Charlotte.” Charlotte is their new dog and I fully support and appreciate that when you introduce a new family member, you need to update your family photos! The extra fun treat was that Rob gifted the session to her for her birthday. […]

Kristen’s connection to Lake Winnipesaukee is really personal. She has been coming to her grandparents lake house her whole life. When it came time to pick a location for their wedding- well it was no hard choice. This is also a practical thing- both of their families are in the New England area so New […]

Laura and Phil have become one of those couples where I’m just a little bummed their wedding is over- only because I don’t have an excuse to see them anymore. However the beauty and joy of their day was just overwhelming. The theme of their day seemed to be calm. When I arrived, Laura and […]

The Rawilngs Conservatory is one of those amazing hidden gems of Baltimore that many people forget exists. It’s timeliness, romantic, and impressive- so perfect for engagement sessions. Inside are different ecosystems for different plants. This also allows us to get really unique and different styles of photography. This is something Ashley and Sean know really […]

When we arrived at Kristen’s parent’s home, the mood was relaxed and calm. The girls were finishing up their hair and makeup. Kristen’s maid of honor shows me to the master bedroom. Laid out on the best in a neat row are all of Kristen’s details. Invitation, shoes, 2 ring boxes, picked to coordinate, her […]

Everyone asks “How do you handle rain on a wedding day”. This is how…. First you should know, Matt cared a lot about this day- he has a great eye for detail and a vision of what the day should look like. I know some called it groom-zilla tendencies but I would not agree. He […]

Kristen and Brett are a very well loved couple- it was a theme that felt ever present during their Lodge at Little Seneca Creek wedding. At every point, their friends and family would throw their arms around them (yay for vaccinated weddings!) and squeeze them. Many times as they broke away, there would be happy […]
