Mike + Kelly

A Baltimore Wedding at The Belvedere
baltimore-downtown-wedding

We’re getting

closer and closer to the end of our wedding season and the more we shoot, the more we realize just how blessed we are with amazing clients! Mike and Kelly have been on our calendar for over a year now and their wedding day was all that I anticipated it to be. From the very beginning, it was full of excitement and a few tears. I think one of my favorite parts of the day was after the first look when we were shooting Mike and Kelly’s portraits and all of a sudden it hit Kelly that this was happening! It was her wedding day!! Tears of joy are the best! Michael and I absolutely loved spending the day with these two and their amazing friends and families. I don’t think downtown Baltimore has ever looked SO beautiful!! But of course I’m biased :) Mike and Kelly had an amazing wedding day. As Mike stood in front of 200 of his closest family and friends at the reception,

Nik + Lindy

A Washington DC Wedding | Sequoia

I have

to admit that I was a little nervous about this one. The government is shut down and Lindy has always dreamed of having portraits with the national monuments! However, despite the barricades and massive amount of tourists, we made it happen!! The only way to shoot portraits around DC on a weekend with a gov’t shut down is to have an amazing group of friends in your bridal party AND you have to have a stretch hummer! :) Michael and I loved riding around DC with Nik and Lindy and their best friends. As we sat in the limo and headed to their ceremony, I was reminded of just how awesome this job is. We get to spend so much time with our couples on their wedding day and that’s such a privilege!! Nik and Lindy are just amazing. They have a story that not many have. Dating for 9 years is quite an accomplishment and so their wedding day was SUCH a celebration!!

Patrick + Anna Maria

A Stevenson Ridge Wedding | Fredericksburg, VA

They

say you can tell a lot about a person by their friends. The more couples I meet and have the privilege of working with, the more I find this to be true. Pat and Anna were surrounded by incredible friends on Saturday and they were from ALL over the country. Awesome right?! It says a lot to have SO many people care about you so deeply that they will stop life for a long weekend, fly to another state and then dance the night away with you because you mean the world to them! As we were leaving, one of Anna’s bridesmaids came up to us in tears and thanked us for capturing her best friend’s special day so well. Those are the kinds of conversations we cherish and that give us motivation to finish out this season with a bang!! I just LOVE awesome bridal parties and awesome couples for that matter!!

Matt + Tara

A Verulam Farm Wedding

There

some venues that just take your breath away… Tara and Matt’s venue was one of those venues. From the moment we arrived, I was (like usual) getting nervous about all that we could accomplish here! The house, the driveways lined with trees changing colors and spectacular views were just amazing and I knew it was going to be the start of a beautiful day!! Matt and Tara went to CNU and so we have mutual friends that attended their wedding. We love these weddings! It’s such a win-win for us! We get to photograph a couple that we know AND we get to hangout with friends from school!! We love our job!! Throughout the day, there was a constant theme that seemed to float around conversations and toasts about the new Mr. and Mrs. Hayes.

Heath + Courtney

Thomas Birkby House Wedding | Leesburg, VA

Everyone

always asks the bride “So how are you feeling?!” Some brides are a little jittery and nervous and then some brides are like Courtney…. totally relaxed and ready to do this!! Courtney told her mom “People say that your wedding day is going to be awesome but this is literally the best day of my life”. She was surrounded by her closest friends and she was about to MARRY her best friend of all!! Heath couldn’t adore her more. During their first look, Heath handed Courtney a letter to read. As she read his words, she looked up at Michael and I and said “He’s so sweet!”. This was something we already knew. You can just tell by the way he looks at her that he wants nothing more than to make her happy. Their relationship started by a chance encounter at JMU… I believe Courtney’s dad mentioned during his toast that Heath and Courtney’s first interaction was over a spilled drink in class.
