Meaghan & Matt's Wedding

Meaghan & Matt's wedding was the perfect end to the year. We started out at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel where Meaghan & her bridesmaids & moms prepared for the day. Everyone looked stunning in their dresses - the girls chose their own favorite black cocktail dress & patent leather pumps to wear and they carried gorgeous white bouquets, while Meaghan stood stunning in a custom dress with an amazing lace bodice & straps & carried a bouquet of breathtaking red flowers. Saint Mary's Church was equally breathtaking! The second I walked into the cathedral, I was ecstatic. It definitely is the prettiest church I've ever photographed a wedding in! Even though we didn't have much time in the church for photos, Meaghan & Matt had a trolley pick up the bridal party after the ceremony that took us to the pier and downtown Annapolis for some fun bridal party photos & more relaxed images of the bride and groom together.
From the picture of Meaghan's grandfather pinned to her bouquet & the Irish handkerchief, to her "something blue" where her bridesmaids wrote notes on her wedding shoes, to the draped & beautifully lit reception ballroom and the cupcake bar that matched the wedding colors - Every aspect of the wedding was planned out perfectly!
Meaghan & Matt changed out of their wedding shoes into bride and groom Toms to dance the night away with their guests. And good thing they did, because I think they were on the dance floor more than any couple I've photographed! Matt was by far the best groom to be on the dance floor almost the entire night, and Meaghan amazed everyone with her awesome rapping skills - reciting every word to Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind!"
Meaghan & Matt - You two were awesome! Thank you for choosing me as your photographer. I hope you love these highlights, & I can't wait for you to see the rest of these wonderful photos! Congratulations!!!

Lizzie's Senior Portraits

Last weekend, I had the best morning spending it with Lizzie & her mom taking her senior portraits around her family farm. I could tell from the first second I met Lizzie, from her beautiful smile, that she was gorgeous both inside and out. Her sister, Sarah, helped her with her outfit choices & I think she got a lot of variety in her images. (Do you remember Sarah from her senior pics in 2008?)
I hope you love these photos Lizzie! Can't wait for you to see the rest! Congrats on your senior year!!!
