Grasonville, MD Wedding Photography {Beth & John}

I first met Beth and John at a wedding I photographed a few years ago.  John was the brother of the bride, and was in the bridal party.  Over the years I have photographed three weddings within this family and it has been such an honor!  I have loved seeing each of them get married and grow their families.  Seeing all three couples at Beth and John's wedding -- hugs all around!  It's amazing how time flies.  

Located at Prospect Bay in Grasonville, MD, their day was spectacularly beautiful.  The sun was out, the sky was blue, and their wedding colors were perfect for a spring wedding.  We even sped off during the reception to catch the tail end of a colorful sunset on the bay!  

Congratulations Beth & John!!

Beth is a beauty!


I just love it when my couples opt for a first look.  It allows us to take lots of photos before the reception so that they can really enjoy the party with their family and friends!
...and a look like this is priceless!
So happy!
LOVE




What a fun bridal party!!  You know the reception was a blast!
Family <3
The ladies
and the gents :)

The 4 lovely sisters!
John seeing his bride walk down the aisle.  One of my favorite moments in each wedding.






MARRIED!
See the ring pop?  So adorable.
Yay for cupcakes!!
Their kids prepared the cutest speeches.  There wasn't a dry eye in the room (including me)!

Congratulations again you two <3

Downtown Annapolis Engagement Photography {Ana & Ben}

Oh my goodness, I absolutely love these two!   They are witty, upbeat, fun, and have an awesome sense of humor.  We probably had too much fun a few weeks ago during their photo session.  I knew after her first email to me that I wanted to work with Ana.  I'm pretty sure that every email and conversation I've had with her has made me smile.  These two are my kind of peeps!   

A few weeks before our scheduled engagement session Ana emailed me and broke some BIG NEWS!  She and Ben are EXPECTING!!!  Our engagement session became a combination engagement & maternity photo session!  I've been holding onto their photos and keeping them on the D-L, but I can now shout this from the rooftops since Ana made the big announcement via Instagram.  

It was an amazing experience to capture not only the the excitement of these two getting married, but also the anticipation of adding a third member to their family.  So much love.

Ana & Ben - congratulations again!  x2 ;-)  I can't wait to photograph your wedding in a few short weeks!
Hello baby bump!!


Her ring is a stunner!!
LOVE

Stunning!
...and those eyes!!!

Angel and Max decided to do a first look (love!!) so they could see each other before the ceremony and allow plenty of time for photos with their bridal party.
