Yes I know its officially March, but January is a time warp and February is a short month.. so thats my excuse for waiting SOOO long to publish this post! I am so excited to share a few of my favorite images from the past years wedding season! Thank you so much to all of these couples who trusted me to walk alongside them during such an incredible day in their lives!
First up! An intimate bridal session with the stunning Mary Shea! She wore two sentimental dresses during her wedding day and wanted to make sure she had plenty of images to honor them! The first is her Culebra, Island gown. She purchased this dress for her original, tropical destination wedding plan! Sadly hurricane season devastated the island and left her scrambling for a new stateside venue! This is where her second dress comes in. With the switch to a more traditional church wedding and elegant reception she decided to recreate her gown using her mothers wedding dress as a base! Check them out below!

LAUREN & JOHN: King Family Vineyard
My first of many wedding this year at King Family Vineyard featured Lauren and John, a fun loving military couple who has waited years to put together their dream wedding! This intimate family wedding was filled with blush accents, fresh pressed uniforms, and the most touching first look! I am so excited to be able to share in a small part of their story.
JOHN & MELISSA: Wisdom Oak Winery
John and Melissa’s wedding day was filled with so may heartfelt moments! Their venue Wisdom Oak winery is only about 15 minutes from my house, so throughout the last few months of venue scouting, engagement photos, and wine tastings, it has become one of my favorite spots in town! It was amazing to see these two families effortlessly blend together, , their ceremony and reception were so filled with love, laughter, and a true understanding of their story!
MARY SHEA & NICK: Eastern Shore Wedding
Over the past year I have done 5 photoshoots with Nick and Mary Shea, engagement pics, puppy photoshoots, bachelorette parities, bridal portraits… lets just say they are seasoned pros in front of the camera! I have know Mary Shea and Nick for the last 3 years and was so fortunate to get to experience their wedding day as a photographer and a guest! Their Eastern Shore wedding was the perfect mix of elegant details, hand crafted items, and sentimental family touches. I loved every minute of this day and am so excited to share some of the highlights below!
SHELLY MILKS (LITWILER): Boars Head Bridal Session
This golden hour bridal session was so special to me! Shelly and I attended College together as Field Hockey teammates, roommates, margarita buddies, and everything in between! In college I was constantly doing my teammates hair and makeup when we went out and this was just another excuse to get dolled up! Shelly and I had so much fun getting to play dress up in her full wedding! Don’t let the sun fool you this session was taken on a CHILLY spring day, and we had to take breaks to wrap up in a blanket between locations! Shelly was a champ.. as usual and I am so thankful to have been a part of this amazing time in my best friends life!
ALI & BRYAN: Meriweather Springs Vineyard
Ali and Bryans wedding day was the perfect way to close out a jam packed spring and summer of photoshoots! This might have been the most relaxed Ive ever felt on a wedding day! Most wedding days are filled with unpredictable weather, last minute time changes, and all sorts of shuffling going on behind the scenes, but this day was different! The combination of Bryan and Ali’s laid back personalities, and their families pitching in with setting up the details made for the perfect wedding day!
