trashing the dress

So I had to make a quick run back to Ohio, and the day after I decided this, S emailed me wanting to trash her dress. I told her the only afternoon I had available, and it happened to be the day before her divorce went through. Crazy, no? Well, we had an amazing time. I'd never shot at Sippo Lake before, but now I'm a huge fan. And despite a bruised tailbone, goose poop, and curious onlookers, we had a glorious time. And I love these pictures.






Look at her puppies! So adorable.






Woodland elf!






Love. Her. Eyes.






I don't know what the story is that is being told in this picture, but I like it.










Yesh. Don't mess with a girl who can kick your tail.


The eyes! They're amazing!






For the record, the water in all these shots was nastier than it looks, but she was game for anything. SO awesome.

the engagement of m&l

I'm in a tearing hurry, so I haven't much time to write anything, but trust me: this couple is awesome, I love them, we had a blast doing the shoot, and I can't wait for their wedding. Apparently L & I share an affinity for food, specifically sushi, laughing, and marrying guys who like to give us a hard time. Love it!






















the light! The perfect light!

the wedding of j&e

These two were married in a beach ceremony in Ocean City, and the reception followed at Lighthouse Sound. Every detail of this wedding was delightful, and E coordinated it all amazingly, especially considering she lives three hours away. These two are a blast! I loved hanging with them, meeting their wedding party, and generally having a grand old time. It. Was. Fabulous. But I'll let the pictures tell you.




Look at her eyes! I couldn't stop taking pictures, trying to capture the amazing color.





"want a mic?"
Yes, this would be bathroom karaoke.

don't you just want to hang out with her?
Don't you just want to chill with her? Trust me: you so do. She's awesome.




Lanterns!

the kiss
The kiss.

His little son joined them for the end of the first dance. Was awesome.

chucks!
So I loved his shoes, and totally followed him around all night trying to get a picture of both of our feet. This was the best I could do.

Now that's what I call dancing.

This has to be one of my favorite images ever. Look at the emotion in her eyes. Love it.


And look how her dad is just cradling her. It was so precious.

I was totally teasing e that she picked brunette bridesmaids on purpose to make herself stand out more. But seriously: awesome ladies!

the guys
These guys were hilarious.

There was actually a rescue WHILE we were shooting these images. I felt vaguely disrespectful continuing to shoot, but there you go. (Don't worry: everyone was fine.)

::only with laughter can you win::
So lovely.

::wedding:: of k&a

This couple, besides being adorable, are two of the warmest, most genuine people you'll ever meet. It was an incredible privilege to be in attendance at their wedding.
The ceremony was at First Baptist Church in Dover, (I think), and the reception was at the Sheraton. Both spaces were lovely, and we were able to stop at the governor's mansion for about 15 minutes to grab a few photos of the two of them. It was a gorgeous, gorgeous day.
