Leah & Eric - Thurmont, MD Wedding Photograper

Leah and Eric are fun. Their wedding? Also fun. See for yourself if you don't believe me!

I love this look on Eric's face when he sees Leah for the first time:

As if their totally awesome venue with a vineyard and a rustic barn wasn't already enough, we drove the Model T over to a covered bridge and did some photos there too! I was in photographer heaven. :)

Leah had a unique idea for a "Truth Booth" at the reception. Guests could choose props and leave a video message for the bride and groom. Photo booths are neat, but this was my first time seeing a video booth! What a great idea!

A Personal Note...

Wow! I can hardly believe how busy I am already this year. And the weddings keep coming! I am so thankful for all of my awesome clients and friends who continue to support, promote and refer me. Seriously - it's amazing! I feel incredibly blessed at how quickly and exponentially my business has grown. There's been a lot of hard work and prayer, and God has answered in ways I could never have imagined two short years ago.

On a personal level, life is great too. I recently got engaged myself, so I now know what being a bride really feels like! As Paul and I like to say, we're not perfect, but we're perfect for each other. And I couldn't be happier about marrying him next year in Maui, Hawaii! The first question I always get is "Well, who's going to shoot your wedding?" We don't have much else planned or locked down yet, but getting a photographer was pretty much the very first thing I did. I'm super excited that Stacie and Darek of Stacie Tatum Photography will be photographing my wedding. I've known Stacie for nine years now (geez, really? has it been nine years?) and have always admired her work.

I really love it. I wanted something a little bit unique, and I think this totally fits me.

And here's one of my favorite pictures of Paul and me. It's from over two years ago, but I still love it. I'm looking forward to having our engagement photos taken by Kate of Kate Fine Art Photography next month. She is awesome and I have no doubt she'll do a bang-up job! I'm so lucky to have all these talented photographer friends. :)

King Family - Harrisonburg Family Portraits

I love it when I get to be the photographer for my friends! It brings me so much joy to capture priceless moments for the special people in my life, as cheesy as that sounds. And what a good-looking family this one is! :)

Kristen & Chris - Towson Golf and Country Club Wedding Photography

Kristen and Chris are a delightfully well-matched couple. After spending the day with both of them, it's easy to see why they get along so well. I was especially impressed at their good attitudes in the midst of a full day of solid April showers thunderstorms! The rain did let up for maybe ten minutes during the reception... long enough to sneak outside for a few quick photos. Speaking of receptions, theirs was a party if I've ever seen one. The band (Doctor's Orders) was awesome - really professional and engaging with the guests.

Ceremony: Cathedral of Mary Our Queen
Reception: Towson Golf and Country Club
