Craig & Christine's Wedding

I couldn't help but post this many photos of Craig & Christine's wedding. I took SO many photos of their beautiful fall day. Their wedding colors stood out perfectly against the golf course grounds and changing colors of the trees overlooking the ceremony site.
Craig & Christine got married at the Links in Gettysburg last weekend. We were looking forward to their wedding since last year when they booked me and after we had so much fun during their engagement session last fall. You might recognize a few of the bridal party members as well, as both Rebekah & Alex, and Liv & Andy were all part of the bridal party, as well as past clients of mine! My brother, Matthew, was also in the bridal party, along with some other great friends of Craig & Christine. All of the bridal party was especially awesome, because they all stood on the edge of the bridge on the golf course for me to get some amazing photos with the sunset and reception site in the background. I could tell they were hesitant about my idea, but were up for it none the less!
And I loved how happy both Craig and Christine both looked. Christine's dress looked amazing on her, and I could tell that Craig was having a good time at his wedding because he was out there on the dance floor most of the night!!! And those bright orange heels that Christine wore peeked out from under her dress to bring such a pop of color to the photos.
I'm so happy for you both. I hope you had an amazing time in Jamaica, and I hope you love each and every one of these photos. There are so many more that I want to share, but these are some of my very favorites! Congrats to you both!!!

Kerry & Chris ~ Engaged!

I told myself that I could only blog eight photos, and these are just the start of the fun images I took of Kerry & Chris to document their engagement together. Kerry is one of my best friends...we met in college, lived on the same floor our freshman year, and continued our friendship into "real" life :) I remember meeting Chris for the first time and thinking what a great guy he is for Kerry. Since I knew them so well, it was easy for me to photograph them. I knew they would be up for anything, and I tried a few new styles with this shoot (which included laying on a boat dock in white capris, being hoisted up into a boat on a lift, laying in a pumpkin patch, and jumping in the middle of a street, so I took advantage of that & we had an amazing time!
We started at Chris' childhood home in Annapolis for the maritime images and finished at Papa John's farm in Glen Burnie, MD for our autumn themed photos. And of course, we had to add in a little bit of Raven's love too!!! :)
I was so honored when Kerry asked me if I would take engagement photos for her and Chris. I am also honored to be a bridesmaid in their wedding next September (2 days after Matt & my anniversary!!!) and I'm so excited for the fun planning & get-togethers to take place in the next year. I hope you both love these photos, and there are many more that I think you will fall in love with! Thanks for letting me document your love & cuteness!!! :) Love you guys!

Erica & Andrew ~ Engagement

Erica & Andrew started out my Sunday morning right. We met at Starbucks in Towson, and Erica had my favorite drink waiting for me. I knew it was going to be a great day :) Erica knows me well...having been an photo intern for us at Towson a few years ago & now a freelance photographer, she knew how much better I operate with a good cup of coffee ;)
The sun was shining and it actually warmed up quickly while we were out taking pictures. We started at Loch Raven Reservoir where we found spots of beautiful morning light and dew on grass that made for some beautiful highlights in the photos. The two of them were so funny and were constantly making each other crack up.
After we walked & drove around the woods & scenic spots around the reservoir, we headed to Towson's football stadium, where they met in marching band & had some fun playing aroud with photos on the football field and stands. Erica & Andrew are both in the same fraternity family, so they wore their letters proudly & were all smiles as we finished up their session.
It was so hard to choose a few of my favorites to showcase on the blog. I know you guys are probably busting to see these images, and I hope you love them. Erica, I hope you get used to being in front of the camera instead of the operator, because you were beautiful, and I know your wedding photos will be just as awesome! :)

Happy Birthday Momma!!!

Something's gotta change, because the most recent photo I have of mom & I together is from Thanksgiving of last year when we went to the Macy's Day Parade. While I love the photo, I learned that we need to take more pictures of us together!
Today is my mom's birthday, and I'm so sad that I'm missing celebrating with her. I'm working all day at Towson because it's family weekend. (Kind of ironic that I'm going to be spending time with other families, but not my own) :( Anyway, my amazing hubby is there hanging out for the day, and I know that I'll get to see her a lot once it gets colder and the semester at TU slows down a bit.
Mom, I hope you have a Wonderful Birthday! I Love You!!! :)
