I met Rachel years ago when I visited Salisbury with my Big in my sorority, they cheered together so we quickly became friends! I was so thrilled when Rachel got engaged (I had a feeling it would happen soon!), and it was so fun strolling the quiet streets of Chestertown on Christmas Eve with Rachel […]

Colorful Winter Chestertown Engagement Session

This was a day I’ve been waiting for FOR.EVER. One of my favorite people (and my favorite calligrapher!) Amy got engaged!!!!!! Her *fiance* Will wanted her to be 100% surprised, which I thought would be difficult because Amy always expects everything. We decided to disguise it as a photoshoot with her best friend/my past bride […]

This is one of the most asked questions I get from couples, and I don’t blame them! Your engagement session is most likely the first time you and your boo have ever been photographed, so it can be a little intimidating. I also know that couples really want to thoroughly plan their engagement session because […]

Tips For Planning Your Engagement Session

This is kinda crazy…..but Jenny was my manager at the very last part-time job I ever worked (YogiCastle). She’s the same age as me, and went to my sisters high school, so we were pretty close when we worked together. I knew she had been dating Jarred for awhile, and when I saw they got […]

I seriously love when couples pick their engagement session locations, because there’s usually a good chance that its somewhere I have never been! Victoria & Steve met me at Allen Pond Park, close to their home, and I loved wandering around with them. This park is on my list of favorite places to shoot, it […]

Victoria & Steve | Allen Pond Park Engagement Session

Abby & Ryan live in Texas (which is also where they met!), but Ryan went to the Naval Academy, so they decided to do their engagement session here in Annapolis as a tribute to his military career! We had the absolute best day on the Yard, and these two have so much fun with each […]

Alex is one of my favorite wedding vendors and friends from Baltimore, and I was so excited when I found out she would be at Alt Summit with me!! We decided to do a quick portrait session in the pool at the Saguaro, and it was one of my favorite sessions ever! Colorful walls, Minni […]

Alex | Colorful Palm Springs Pool Party

Amy is a calligrapher in Maryland (one of my favorite calligraphers actually!) and when I found out she lives 2 blocks from me…..she automatically became my go-to gal to photograph whenever I am feeling inspired! So when it was snowing (and 20 degrees out….) I immediately begged her to let me photograph her and her […]

This has been a personal project in the back of my mind for quite some time! Call me crazy, but I LOVE these balloons so much. I’m sure the cashier at Party City thought they were pretty aggressive, ha! Amanda is my Little in my sorority, and she’s always my go-to when I need a […]

Alex & Lauren were SUCH naturals in front of the camera during their downtown Annapolis engagement session! The first 5-ish minutes of every session I usually spend it getting couples comfortable, but these two are so natural with each other and made my job so easy!
