Kim and Rodger’s Engagement Session in Baltimore

7 07 2009

I have to start out by saying I had a complete blast with Kim and Rodger. They are so comfortable with each other and with the love that they share; it was extremely easy to spend the afternoon with them.

This couple eats, breathes and sleeps Baltimore. So, it was no surprise when they told me that they wanted to have their e-session in Baltimore. We started on Federal Hill, stopped by their house (and I got to meet their adorable baby….doggy) and then over to Ft. McHenry. They really wanted to showcase their city of Baltimore as well as their love and I believe we accomplished just that!!

Here are some of my favorite images from our time together…

Aren’t they so super cute????….

Kim and Rodger, thanks so much for a great afternoon and for making my job fun and easy!! Thanks also for your patience waiting to see your images!!!

I am looking forward to your wedding; it’s going to be a magnificant day. Thanks so much for allowing me to document this awesome moment in your life. You are a fantastic couple!!





Engagement session on location…

24 04 2009

with Steeny and Jason. I had a blast with this great couple last weekend.

It was a beautiful day, a slight wind in the air, sunny with enough cloud coverage to make it a perfect day for photographing this fun couple.

It was wonderful watching these two interact together; they compliment each other nicely. They each showed great interest in the other and really seemed to appreciate one another.

Steeny had found me through a google search several months ago and together we worked on a special project for Jason. I already knew she was great in front of the camera. During their e-session, I quickly realized that Jason was comfortable (or did a great job faking it!!) in front of the camera as well.

And by the way……I’m always wondering if I’ll get a phone call from my couples the day after their e-session complaining about their kissing muscles being sore! Haven’t so far!

Here are some of my faves from our afternoon together…

KC and John’s engagement session in DC

20 04 2009

I had the pleasure of photographing KC and John last week in DC. They are Washingtonians so we started on Capitol Hill. Even though we knew that the cherry blossoms had come and gone, we worked our way to the Tidal Basin; it’s always worth the visit. We were racing against time so we had some fun parking and driving challenges but it was all good! These two were great to hang with and up for most any crazy suggestion that I had for them. I’m really looking forward to spending more time with them and photographing their wedding.

Here are some pictures of this awesome couple…

Introducing Megan and Jason…

18 10 2008

I had a wonderful time a couple of weeks ago with Megan and Jason. They are getting married next June so we got together for their engagement shoot. What a FUN and cute couple. Their day was full of laughter, hugs and kisses!

They live in Southern Maryland and liked the idea of shooting at Patapsco. In fact, Jason emailed me asking if I knew the Park and I was thrilled to say that it’s one of my very favorite places to take people!

Here are some of my favorites from our day…

Aren’t they soooo cute??

We ran into a group of fun people who were taking each other’s pictures. I saw this on the back of one of the couple’s shirts…I thought it was very appropriate for our occasion!!

Nothing like a little dancin’ on the railroad tracks…

When we were driving to another area of the Park, everything was looking somewhat familiar to Megan. She realized that this area was one of her stomping grounds in her high school days (sorry, I have no details to share 😉 ). She told us that just up the road was an area where there were faces on trees…yes, faces on trees. Were the faces carved…drawn with markers…how did the faces get on the trees?? It was the topic of conversation for awhile. We asked her a few more questions about the faces and continued on our way.

Once we wrapped for the day and we were heading back to the car, irony hit us. Because of the late afternoon sun through the leaves, as well as the yellow paint that marks the trail, the Park wished us farewell and good evening!!
Photobucket

Megan and Jason, thanks for a fun day. I really had a great time getting to know you both better. I’m thrilled that you enjoyed Patapsco. Your wedding day is going to be awesome and the start to a wonderful life together.

MaryEllen, thank you so much for referring me to Megan and Jason. Great people!! 😀





Katie and Scott make a trip from Massachusetts…

30 04 2008

and we were able to get together for their engagement session. Katie and I had spoken many times on the phone. Meeting Katie over the phone was like talking to an old friend, there was a genuine connection. I was really looking forward to meeting this awesome couple.
Photobucket

They have a fantastic love story that dates back to Katie moving to Florida to attend college. She met a guy named Chris on her second day of school and they became friends. Chris later introduced Katie to his best friend, Scott, when Scott visited from Boston. Fast forward…Scott and Katie now live in Boston and are awaiting their November wedding! That’s the abridged version!! Good job Chris!! 😀

We met at Ft. McHenry on a beautiful, sunny, cool day. Katie is from this area and I was so glad that she suggested this spot. I always like my couples to pick a place that means something to them whenever possible. Ft. McHenry has trails galore. Katie and Scott have run many races (a goal is the Boston Marathon!!) and have used this scenic area for training runs. They may be running the Baltimore Marathon just a few weeks before they get married!! 🙂 You can do it!!!

Here are some of my favorites from our fantastic time together. I look at the colors of these pictures and how bright and vibrant they are and instantly see the parallels to Katie and Scott’s personalities. They are fun-laid-back-enjoy-life type of people with vibrant, loving personalities.

Photobucket

They were always laughing with one another…

unless they were kissing…

I cued the birds 😉

So cute of Katie. She’s as warm and friendly as this picture illustrates…

Hilarious…

(no disrespect intended to Major George Armistead) 😉

Katie and Scott, thank you for interviewing me and choosing me to document this incredible time of your life. It was great spending time with you both. Scott, you’re a great man, I know you’ll be a terrific husband! A bonus was to be able to meet your father and grandfather Katie! I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of your families and your friends.

Jenna and Charity, thanks for referring me!





13 more days until Karen and Scott get married…

27 04 2008

and we met up at University of Maryland to spend some time together for their engagement shoot. Photographers Robin Single and Debbie Scalise are going to be photographing their ceremony for me so they met with us as well. It was fun working with both of them and I know they will capture the beauty and magic of Karen and Scott’s ceremony.

Okay, let’s get started with University of Maryland vs. Duke. Scott graduated from U of MD. Karen brought a few “props” with her for their campus photoshoot. U of MD has the Terrapin as their mascot. My husband went to U of MD also, and I never quite understood their slogan, “Fear the Turtle”…like who can’t run from a turtle!!!…pahleeeezzee!!!! 😉 Here’s the future husband and wife team posing with the big, bad turtle…check out who’s wearing the Duke Blue Devil horns….
Photobucket
Scott, when Johnny saw this picture, he said “He let that happen??” 😀

Karen and Scott are really fun to work with. They are fun, smart, sexy and easy going! Aren’t they gorgeous…
Photobucket

Here are just a few of my favorites from our afternoon together…

…way to go Debs.

Puddles are great…

And of course, I always love the silhouette when I can get one…

Thanks for a fun afternoon! Karen, you a one smart and beautiful woman, Scott you represent the Sigma Chi’s well! It’s been really nice getting to know you over the last few months and working with you both. I’m looking forward to seeing you at your reception! I hope these next couple of weeks are enjoyable and relaxing for you.

Robin and Debs, your pictures from the e-session are amazing. I appreciate you working with me and consider it an honor! Thanks.

Mary and Walter, thank you for referring me to another awesome couple! xoxo





Meghan and Jay’s fun engagement session…

21 04 2008

What a blast I had when I got together with Meghan and Jay for their engagement session. They are so much fun. Meghan’s smile is contagious…Jay is a prince who treats her like a princess…and together they make one fantastic couple!

We met on Main Street in Annapolis and I couldn’t have asked for better lighting. It was a beautiful afternoon with a beautiful couple. A slight breeze filled the air while the sun seemed to assist me at all the right times!
Photobucket

I made a subtle 😉 suggestion that they share a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream cone…there was no arm twisting needed!
Photobucket

Photobucket

There are so many awesome places (read:  streets) to dance!!!! Jay was amazing, never complained, out loud 😉  , when I found yet another great place for him to show us his fancy footwork.  Here he is in the middle of Main Street illustrating his finesse while Meghan gets a little sassy…
Photobucket

I LOVE this picture! Jay was wooing Meghan with his fine repertoire of Rap songs while dancing…and…well…
Photobucket

A little more sass from Meghan…
Photobucket

Love, love this one. The sky was a gorgeous backdrop for this awesome couple.
Photobucket

We ended our evening together with a really yummy dinner and great conversation at the Harbor House on the docks. Thanks so much Meghan and Jay for a fun and wonderful afternoon and evening. How lucky I am to be able to document this wonderful time in your lives…thanks for the honor.

Your wedding day is going to be spectacular!…so is your life together.
