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 […]

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.

You’ve heard it a million times – your wedding day goes by in the blink of an eye. The months (or years!) of planning and preparation will be over before you know it, and the next day, all you’ll have is your groom and your photographs. It’s my job to make sure the latter are […]

They say that if you don’t like the weather in Maryland just wait ten minutes, and that’s exactly how Kelsey and Travis’s engagement session went. We met at the historic London Town & Garden on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon. Then it began to rain, but the sun was still shining. Then, the skies opened and […]
