Baltimore's Star Spangled Sailabration

Baltimore celebrated the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 in the Inner Harbor & surrounding areas this weekend. I was lucky enough to get there to take part in the beautiful celebration & snapped some great photos of the tall ships and the Navy's Blue Angels during their amazing air show! The harbor was packed with visitors & the ships all had long lines to tour them, but we were still able to take a tour of the Mexican ship, which was just beautiful. It was a great event that brought a lot of business and tourists to Baltimore. I'm glad I was able to experience such an amazing display of patriotism. Hope you love the photos!

Gorgeous Details - Kent Island Wedding

Last weekend, I had a great opportunity to be a second photographer for a friend and colleague, Molly Humphrey. The bride, Trish, was amazing at choosing the more gorgeous decorations and flowers for her waterside reception on Kent Island, MD. I photographed the reception room as it was being set up, as well as the ceremony, and then I helped assist Molly with lighting for their formal photos.
I just wanted to showcase some of the beautiful details they had for their wedding to give others ideas for their big day! From the antique books piled on the tables with silver platters for the table numbers, to the personalized beer coozies, she left no part of the room untouched with her wedding theme. They even had sweet tea vodka & lemonade served to each guest in mason jars with fun pink & white straws as the ceremony ended! There is so much you can do to personalize your wedding day to match your personalities and bring everything together in a theme.
Congrats Trish & Chris on your wedding!

Matthew & Kathleen - Surprise Engagement

I embarked on the most exciting and nerve-wracking photo shoot of my career when I photographed my brother's surprise proposal to the amazing girl of his dreams. I'm so glad the photos are in focus and turned out, because with all of the crying and shaking I was doing, I was able to capture what most people do not have any record of - the day their lives change forever and they say "Yes" to marry the person of their dreams.
Kathleen had no idea that Matthew was proposing - she thought it was just a photo shoot we were doing so that she could surprise him with a canvas print on their anniversary. Little did she know, she was set up!
We spent the day roaming around Virginia in Yorktown & surrounding areas to capture their personalities and glowing smiles as that gorgeous ring flashed sparkle all over the place.
Kathleen & Matthew - I'm so glad I was able to be part of your special day and was able to capture the exciting time in your lives. I can't wait for the wedding!!! Congratulations!!!
