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….

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…

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!

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

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…

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…

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

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.

A fun engagement session with Aubrey and Eric…

29 03 2008

Tracy and I met with Aubrey and Eric last weekend for their e-session.  We had so much fun photographing them.

We went to Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis.  It was a beautiful, sunny day.   I love the opportunity to get to know my brides and grooms better and these e-sessions are a fantastic way to do just that.

Here are some of my favorites from our afternoon together…

When we first arrived, the wind put a slight chill through the air so we were all bundled…

Becky and Trevor in love….

6 11 2007

Tracy and I were able to spend a morning with Becky and Trevor last week.  They’ll be getting married in March and we can not WAIT for their wedding…these two are just awesome; we had a great time with them.

If I blogged every picture that was adorable of them, the blog would go on for 10 miles!  They were either laughing with one another or kissing and just having fun.

Introducing Becky and Trevor (aka:  adorable and adorable)…
