Sandy + Kevin // Baltmore Wedding at AVAM

Sandy + Kevin were married two weeks ago, in an epic Baltimore rainstorm. They got ready, did a first look, and then the rain started!

They made their way to the American Visionary Art Museum in a torrential downpour and tied the knot, Kevin cracking continuous jokes the entire time. And Sandy, looking stunning in a gorgeous sleeveless wedding gown, couldn’t contain her laughter. I just absolutely love these two people and their wedding was wonderful!

Theirs was a true Baltimore wedding: Orange Crushes for all, pit beef, crabcakes, random weather phenomenon, inner harbor views, great guest outfits, huge dance party!

Enough chitchat; photographs commence!

Amanda + Jason // Richmond Virginia Wedding

This wedding was a beautiful whirlwind!

I met Amanda and Jason about a year ago while I was still living in Richmond, and immediately vibed with Amanda’s supercool attitude and Jason’s super sarcastic attitude! I just instantly loved these people and we immediately set up a date for an engagement session for a few months down the line (which you can refresh your memory on right over here).

I had a lot of fun with them and I knew their wedding would be incredible. Spoiler alert IT WAS!!!!

They were married at Historic Tredegar in Richmond Virginia, a beautiful almost-riverside historic building complex. Tredegar used to produce large cannons during the Civil War, and now houses a great Civil War museum. The open spacious environment inside and the absolutely perfect day outside provided a backdrop for this gorgeous wedding. I won’t say much more, just that I can’t get enough of these two and I’m so glad that I was there to witness their vows and celebrate their love! On to the photos!!

crazy // strange // great // 2018

Well, that was a year alright.

A crazy, strange, great 2018. Let’s break that down:

Crazy: what even happened this year?! Abbi + I traveled all over the country with family, and went back to Italy for a third time! I flew to California for a few weddings, and moved to Baltimore Maryland! A LOT of traveling. We’re both really loving Baltimore so you should come visit!! It is actually an awesome town. Just gotta dodge the horrible drivers.

Strange: this year saw less overall bookings than previous years, so I used it as a time to do some thinking about what’s been successful and unsuccessful and what I need to work on personally + professionally in the coming months and years. A new website is in the works and I’m…pretty dang excited about it! I’ve also tried some cool new stuff this year…more on that below.

Great: The weddings I was privileged to be a part of this year and the people that I’ve met along the way have made this an incredible year. I love photography, because when done well, it has the power to paint an emotional canvas of a whole life in each image. Looking back on all of the moments in these amazing people’s lives, I feel honored to be doing what I’m doing; to have a perspective on those moments. The trust you put into a photographer is In the images below you’ll see a whole lot of things in addition to my weddings and engagements. It’s been interesting to try to stretch myself a little this year. Political stuff, editorial events, travel photos; I’ve even done some newborn, baby, and family sessions this year, one of which was for a couple whose wedding I photographed three years ago! It’s so exciting to see these people going through another amazing stage of life and to reconnect after so long.
