Stu + Abigail

Last month, Elina and I drove down to Maryland for one of the coldest weddings to date!  Nevertheless, it was just as beautiful and I absolutely loved it there! Walking on the beach in January…um yes please! The colors were amazing and the whole bridal party were such troopers…the girls walked in HEELS on the beach, in JANUARY! YES!

Hope you enjoy a few pictures from the day! Check out Elina’s site too…here!

Jesse + Jen [wedding]

This wedding day was extra special to photograph. Because it was my SISTER’S wedding!! As you could imagine, our house was in a whirlwind of preparation, flowers and decorations. It was a beautiful day…everything went so smoothly!! But I am not going to lie, I am glad all of the work is over! Ha! I love love LOVE looking back at all the pictures from the day…I even shed a few tears going though all the bridal portraits of my sister… she is so beautiful and she is a BRIDE! AH! It is very different not having her around, but I am so happy for her and my new brother!! Enjoy!

Bruck + Sylvia

Ah, this was such a beautiful and unique wedding day to document! The entire day reflected Bruck & Sylvia well! From sweet pre-ceremony notes that could melt a heart to a wonderful butterfly releasing after the ceremony, every part of the day demonstrated who they are and their love for each other. Small hints of the things that these two love were so evident throughout the day and gave a special glimpse into their passions and who they are.

This wedding was the last of three weddings for Elina and I in 7 days! Phew! Tiring, yes, but the love and joy from each of these weddings kept us energized!! Enjoy!

Preston + Katherine

This wedding day started off with smiles, hugs and SO much excitement! Katherine and her bridesmaids got ready for the big day at the Cottage and Loft…it was the most perfect place! The rest of the day continued to be just as wonderful. Gorgeous portrait locations, a stunning and fun bridal group, and English Country dance lessons…the day just kept getting better!!

Daniel + Amber

This was the first of three weddings Elina and I photographed in an eight day time frame…and this was such a beautiful wedding to start with!! It was such a pleasure to be a part of this authentic, joy filled day. Daniel and Amber, your love for each other was so apparent throughout the day, from the foot washing ceremony to the sweet smiles exchanged between you too! I wish you two all the best in the years to come!

A huge thanks to my girl Elina for asking me to second shoot with her…she is the best!! Check out her work here and here!

Benjamin + Jaclyn

Ben and Jaclyn- CONGRATULATIONS! It was such an honor to second shoot this wedding with my dear friend Julia! There where so many beautiful moments… Jaclyn’s daddy seeing her for the first time in her white gown, Ben and Jaclyn sharing a praying before the ceremony, and the encouraging and sweet words from the pastor, which had me tearing up a bit! It was all so beautiful! The rain falling couldn’t dim the radiant smiles of these two newlyweds! Wishing you both the best!!
