I cannot believe it’s been over a year since I first met Kelsey and Travis! After months of planning, anticipation, and the craziest engagement session weather ever, their wedding day finally arrived. And seriously, it was a fairytale. From Kelsey’s stunning illusion backless gown, to the beautiful turquoise touches (my fave color!), every detail culminated […]
The wedding day timeline is one of the first things I discuss with potential AWP brides, and for good reason! You’ve been planning your wedding for months (if not years!), and having a timeline for the event is a critical way to ensure it’s everything you imagined it would be. Don’t be fooled – even […]
Oh, Jennifer and Chris. Their love story is twenty-five years in the making, and they threw the party of a lifetime on Saturday to celebrate it! From the moment I arrived at the venue, I knew I was with my people. Every single friend and family member was beaming with excitement and joy, thrilled that […]
Grab something yummy and settle in, because I’ve got a treat for you this evening! I met Rebecca and Anthony for their engagement session on Friday evening, and these two totally rocked it. This was my first time meeting Anthony, and right away the two of them reminded me of myself and my husband, Adam! Rebecca is bubbly and outgoing, while Anthony is more softspoken. They’re a perfect pair!
Jessica’s mom and I have known each other for years through work, and so I was thrilled when they contacted me about wedding and engagement portraits! Jess and her fiancé, Dayne, met at their alma mater, St. Mary’s College of Maryland. They both work at SMCM now and anyone from southern Maryland knows how gorgeous the campus is, so it was a no-brainer that we’d meet there for their engagement session!
Ahhh, the engagement session. It’s included with the signature AWP wedding collection, and for good reason! For most couples, this is your first time being professionally photographed together – or maybe even at all! It’s a chance for us to work together before the stressure (that’s stress + pressure) of the wedding day, and for you to feel confident and celebrate this milestone in your relationship. As a sweet bonus, the end result is beautiful portraits that aren’t in wedding day attire, and that ultimately may feel more natural and true to you.
Kara and I found each other on social media, and as soon as she hopped out of Joey’s truck on the evening of their engagement session, I knew she was my kind of girl! Kara and Joey are super laid back, love on each other constantly, and were just instantly wonderful to be around.
My grandmother’s health had in decline for awhile, and she made the heartbreaking decision to end treatment and come home under hospice care. With family gathered here in Maryland to help out and say goodbyes, my sister, Taylor, and her fiancé, David, put a wonderful plan in motion.
“What are you doing tomorrow at 2:30?”, she texted me, “David and I are getting married!”
And just like that, a beautiful wedding was planned in less than 18 hours’ notice, all so that our sweet Momo could be there to witness it.
