the reception of j&b

These two were married a couple of months ago in Connecticut because it's not yet legal for them to marry here in Maryland. However, they chose to celebrate their union with a gorgeous, perfectly detailed reception at the Hyatt in Cambridge, Maryland. It's a lovely space, they staff was perfect, and everything was simply lovely. I felt incredibly privileged to be able to take the photos; these two are good friends of ours, so I wasn't just a photographer, I was also a guest. Only their nearest and dearest were present, and the whole event was a glorious celebration of a couple that's been together for 11 years.

Before the reception started, we took family photos with their adopted son.

We all loved this sign. 

The suite was gorgeous. 

T is a total rockstar. And a ham. He loved mugging for the camera.

I love this photo so much. The emotion is, to me, perfect.

esession: j&d

J put a lot of thought into these photos, choosing locations with special meaning and carefully selecting props. It really shows in the pictures, I think. I love when couples bring their own unique perspective to the shoot; it makes it that much easier to capture THEM. We had tons of fun getting these images; D was certainly developing his eye and kept coming up with creative, unique, and very solid suggestions. Altogether, I love them, and can't wait for their January wedding!

the wedding of c&m

These two got married in Kent Island at the old Ferry Landing, and I think it was the first wedding there since it's been refurbished. It was a gorgeous location, and I could have spent hours taking pictures, but that's not what stands out in my mind. The one thing that colors this day with a gorgeous glow is the incredible joy that was present. Past the perfect weather, the lovely wedding party, the crazy dancing, the exquisite details; beyond all that was joy and great laughter. It was a privilege and an honor to be the one to try to capture all that.

yes, that would be the bay bridge behind them

::sneakiest peek::

So today I shot the senior photos of my youngest cousin, and now I officially feel old. I took her older sister's senior photos, I've taken her pictures before, three years ago, and she's grown up so much since then that I really can't believe that she's a senior in HIGH SCHOOL. Where has the time gone? (Also: let us all pause and compare the difference that three years has made in my photography. Just. Wow.) Anyway, she looks so freaking beautiful; I had to share just a couple of my favorites from the dozens of good ones.
