These two, Alan & Brittany, are just wonderful!  I had such a great time walking and getting to know them a little last Wednesday at First Landing State park during their engagement session.   Alan is so tall; 6 foot 9 inches to be exact, yet Brittany fit so perfectly together with him.  He is […]

My mind goes back to the first time I ever spoke with Luisa on the phone.  We talked for what seemed like an hour.  I am a horrible phone talker…I am awkward, I often talk way too fast, interrupt out of nervousness and well I just don’t like to do it.  Luisa made me feel […]

I met Melanie last fall at the Founders Inn Show Bride wedding show and I immediately fell in love with her.  Melanie is one of those people who make you see the world in a happier way. Her positive and joyful spirit is one of my favorite things about her!  We instantly hit it off.  […]

This was a fun engagement session…really almost all are for some reason or another.  Nick and NaTasha wanted to start at their condos with their two little dogs, Annabelle and Princess Leia.  These little girls were so fun and reminded me of small kids.  First, they weren’t really interested in taking photos at all and […]

For the first time ever something embarrassing happened to me during an engagement session.  My sugar dropped mid-way through.  I sorta panicked.  I am not sure if it was the extreme heat or the fact that we’ve been eating healthy in our house and it was dinner time.  For whatever reason though, it dropped.  I […]

I have to say I pretty much love all my engagement sessions, but this one I adored.  Not just because of the awesome couple I photographed, but because I lost my horrible phone! Yeah.  It was the Samsung Galaxy 7s and I hated that thing; purely! So much! I am glad it is gone and […]

If you love hot engaged couples..yes, I said “hot engaged couples” then you will definitely love Chris and Gabby’s engagement session at the Chesapeake Arbetorum last Friday. These two got some special treatment from us.  We never ever do engagement sessions on Friday nights…why, well because that is our date night!  So, instead of Jake […]

We met this sweet couple, Paul & Erin at the Obici House Wedding show this past May.  They already had wedding photographers booked for their wedding in August in Long Island, New York; Erin is from there.  But they wanted engagement photos, so they could showcase at their wedding.  So, we got the honor to […]

The “kissy kissy” couple is the perfect way to describe Nate & Allie.  Every moment we stopped they were….well, kissing! Like seriously…anytime I would switch a lens or be in my camera bag for something they were making out in the background.  I thought it was perfect….I mean, isn’t it suppose to be that way?! […]

Chris and Belle.  Where do I start?  How about the day we first met them at the Founder’s Inn ShowBride Show in November.  They were some of the last people that stopped by our booth.  We immediately fell in love with them. I am not sure if it was because of their amazing proposal story […]
