I had been talking back and forth with Dianne for almost a year trying to get her a portrait session set up. Our schedules were always out of sync. I was always glad to see her touch base every couple of months to see if I was still interested. Well, we were finally able to get a date that worked for both of us and she brought her boyfriend and his little boy. We met at Silver Lake Park in Dover and I was shocked (& delighted) to hear her British accent! We walked around the park shooting at different backgrounds and ended up with some great shots. Here are a few of my favorites:
I love being a Maryland Wedding Photographer! Especially for couples like Erica & Brandon. They were married at Kitty Knight House in Massey, MD (I’ll go anywhere!). They couldn’t have asked for a better day. The weather was absolutely gorgeous! I shot their engagement session a while back at a vineyard and I knew the wedding was going to be awesome. What a sweet couple! Brandon is a hoot!! Erica didn’t want me to shoot the girls at the salon so I went to Kitty Knight House early and started to see where I wanted to shoot later on. Once they showed up I got to work. I took care of the details and then got to work on the girls and guys getting ready. We did a little bridal boudoir as a surprise for Brandon and then got back to the wedding pics. The sun was crazy bright during the ceremony, but it was still beautiful. After the ceremony we snuck up to a farm with the Bridal party for portraits and then went back for the reception. The rest of the night was beautiful as well and I had a blast. What a great day, family, and friends! Here are some of my favorites from the day:
LaShawn wanted to set up a session to commemorate her & her husband’s 1st anniversary while staying in town at the Dover Downs Casino. We held the session at Silver Lake Park in Dover. It was a pleasure meeting them and we had a great time. I’m honored they chose me to document such a sweet moment in their lives. Here are some of my favorites:
Guess who was asked to shoot another maternity & newborn session? This guy! lol Leigh Ann was having another baby so we planned a maternity session and then after the baby came, I went back and photographed Baby Dos and his Big Sister Sam. Sam made sure to let me know that her pictures were going to be shot first. After Sammy’s fashion sesh I moved on to Baby Dos (his real name is Daniel, but big sissy calls him “Prince Charming”). We weren’t able to do the session within the first 10 days so Daniel was not super sleepy (that’s why we should do them so early). I think we got some great shots before he became cranky/hungry. We even snuck in a few of Daddy’s Boston Red Sox & New England Patriots collectibles for special Daddy shots. Take a look and leave a comment below if you like them.
There’s nothing like waiting until the last minute to shoot the engagement session right before the wedding! Anna was a little slow responding to me about scheduling her engagement session. She had a good reason though, she was planning her wedding! She finally got back with me about a time & place. Thank God! (The engagement session is practice for the wedding and to see who’s a blinker/squinter and to get to know each other and to get used to me being in your face all day.) We met at Silver Lake Park in Dover and even Anna’s parents tagged along to watch (I put her dad to work as my assistant!) We had some fun and eventually Jake relaxed and let his super model out. We got some great shots! If you agree, leave a comment below.
I do headshots too! Rhett Ruggerio conacted me to shoot new corporate headshots for Ruggerio Willson & Associates. We scheduled a session to take place at Legislative Hall in Dover to shoot them. Here are the selects:
That’s right, I want to expand my Destination Wedding Photography services to Mexico and work more during my slower winter months up here on the East Coast. Plus I want to go back to those beautiful beaches, great food, and wonderful people! In 2011 I went to Akumal (an hour South of Cancun) with my wife and two daughters and it was AMAZING! We had such a great time and can’t wait to get back!
I am willing to give one lucky couple free wedding photography coverage for their destination wedding in the Riviera Mia. This includes cities like: Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, Akumal, Tulum, etc. All you have to do is contact me with the details and if I’m not already booked and you’re a good fit, I’ll shoot your wedding for free! You will have to fly me out and put me up for two nights though (that’s probably less than $1,000!). How much time will you get? I’ll give you 10-12 hours of coverage and give you the photo files on disc and a beautiful wedding album too. If you want one of my custom Wedding Collections, I can do that, but at a reduced price. If you want to do a Day After session I’ll shoot that as well.
So, are you as excited as I am? Get in touch with me and lets get this going!
