Nicki & Brandon

I mean seriously, these two. I adored walking around Fed Hill with them the other day. I loved their idea to bring a couch up to Fed Hill park – it was literally perfection!! I couldn’t help but think they resembled Kate and William in some of these. Nicki and Brandon met on match and had their first date at Saute so it seemed only natural to end the session doing what they did on their first date – drinking orange crushes and being totally flirty right at the bar. These two are absolutely perfect for each other and I seriously cannot wait until their big day!

Huge thanks to XOXO Vintage Rentals for this awesome couch and for hauling it up all of those steps!

Ashley & Jiakai – Musket Ridge

This past weekend was a celebration of true love. Ashley and Jiakai’s wedding was a joining of two beautiful families that come from completely different places. It was beautiful to watch it all unfold. ┬áSo many happy tears were shed as Ashley walked down the aisle, clinging tightly to her dad. There were so many heartfelt words spoken at the reception while people held their glasses high to cheers them on their way. And then everyone danced the night away. It was absolute perfection.

Ashley and Jiakai – I hope you have an amazing time in Hawaii, Japan and China! It was an honor to be the one to document your day. I am so excited you two have each other to walk through this life with! I hope you face challenges head on and together and know you with each other, you will never be alone. Now, go get a drink with an umbrella straw.:-)

Lauren & Angelo

Yesterday I finally got to meet the mystery couple that booked me without even meeting with me and I absolutely adored them. They were so easy to talk to and wander around a pretty deserted, old Ellicott City this week. These two were total naturals in front of the camera. Angelo walked straight off the pages of some GQ catalog and Lauren looked just as darling as ever with this twinkle in her eyes that was so fun to capture. And the best part is that you can totally tell from the minute you meet these two that they are totally smitten with each other. And that just makes me gush with happiness. Hope you like the teasers!
