I had the opportunity this past week to spend the whole holiday break with this sweet, fun couple, and thought that instead of lumping our two days into one blog I’d split them up by days, so here we go!
Brittany, Kellen, and their friends and family traveled from literally all over the country for their special day. To show their appreciation and to commemorate such a big event in their lives they decided to involve everyone in one big fun session the day before their wedding, which was such a unique and sweet gesture. With so many of my couples coming from out of town to get married the first time I meet many of them in person is the day of their wedding, so it was really cool to not only get a chance to know Brittany and Kellen beforehand but to also meet their awesome bridal party and families.
Here are a few favorites from our lovely evening on Assateague.

And now for Brittany and Kellen’s wedding! There isn’t much to say besides that this day was absolutely perfect. From the beautiful details and flawless bride to the amazing sunset we were blessed with, I don’t think a single detail was overlooked. I don’t think I’ve heard a more heartfelt set of vows, and from the amount of tears I noticed I don’t think I was alone. Everything was absolutely perfect and I’m so glad I was welcomed into this big, supportive group o capture these memories. Here is a little glimpse into Brittany and Kellen’s Chincoteague wedding.

I had the honor of photographing the wedding of one of the most talented, intelligent couples this past weekend in Chincoteague and I could not be more thrilled to share a glimpse into their beautiful day. I don’t know if any two people could be more perfectly matched than Emmy and Harris. They both share a mutual passion (and skill) for music, arts, and higher education, while being completely down to Earth and easy going at the same time. Their ceremony was held at Robert Reed Park and boasted not only beautiful music but an intriguing, well articulated dialogue as well. We took a few minutes to explore downtown Chincoteague afterwards for some photos and then partied the rest of the night away at the Ropewalk Chincoteague (including a visit by one of my favorites, the Mr. Whippy ice cream truck, to top off some amazing Sugarbakers cookies). I stole them away from the party for a few minutes at sunset to capture one of those sunsets only Chincoteague seems to be able to pull off, and I am soooo glad we did! A gorgeous couple with a gorgeous setting is always a good idea :)
From the littlest details to the biggest, I loved every minute of last Saturday and am so excited to share Emmy and Harris’ wedding.

I’ve been excited to photograph Susan and John’s wedding since our earliest conversations, and am so excited to share their day now. Susan’s energy and laid back attitude shone through even in text, and paired with the planning she was putting into the day I could tell would be nothing short than what it was; simultaneously energetic and laid back, with a wonderful eye for detail all around.
Susan and John are a perfect fit for each other. Their personalities complement each other in every way, drawing friends and family in to one big, fun, outgoing group. The day started at the Fairfield Inn & Suites followed with a sweet, heartfelt ceremony at the Robert Reed Park in Chincoteague, and ended with panoramic views of the water from Ropewalk, Chincoteague. From start to finish it was full of excitement, love, and support, and I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to be a part of it all. Here’s a look at Susan and John’s wedding:

Having only knowledge of twin pregnancy has made this time around seem like the first. Which in most manners is pretty cool and totally weird. With the boys I had just about every pregnancy symptom imaginable due to the huge surge of hormones, and by 26 weeks I looked and felt like I was full term. This time around I feel absolutely tiny in comparison to pictures from the boys (I know it’s just one but I had prepped myself for the whole “everything stretches easier the second time” idea, and fully expected to start showing much earlier than close to 20 weeks). And with the exception of some pretty stubborn morning sickness I feel good, at least as good as anyone who is rapidly putting on weight while chasing two mini tornadoes around all day can feel.
Anyway, enough small talk and down to the real point of this post. With Baby 3 due in July I’ve had to make some big adjustments to my summer scheduling as far as weddings and lifestyle sessions are concerned. I will be on official maternity leave from early July through mid September, and have limited the amount of sessions I’ll be accepting in June to ensure that I can keep up with my workload before then. For anyone who has already booked, no worries you’re set. I have also left a small amount of sessions open for recurring clients in that June-July window, so if we meet every year please check in! If you’re a new client (thanks for checking my work out by the way!) I currently am only booking for a few dates in May, the first week of June, and anything post-September 22nd.
I’m so sorry for any inconvenience and to those of you who I either won’t have the pleasure of meeting this year or the opportunity to catch up with I hope to cross paths again!
Thanks so much for all of the love and support we’ve received, not just through this pregnancy but since the boys as well! All of my love to you all! -Allie
(oh, and because I bored you to death with all of those words here are a few pictures of my awkward self and my perpetually naked children. I swear they own clothes, though they will adamantly refuse to acknowledge that fact. Also please excuse all of the grumpiness-I snatched them about 3 seconds after naps before they were awake enough to protest :) )
