The strong ocean breeze and this endearing couple made for one of my favorite engagement sessions to date. The skies were dark and moody and I’m sure Venke and Heath were doing everything possible to keep their teeth from chattering, but you could never tell. Instead they bundled up, bundled in, and went with the flow. Definitely my kind of people! Windswept and in love, with the ocean roaring in the background and a cozy blanket. These two are so real and open and I can’t wait to be there next July to capture it all!

I had the best time exploring Jones Point Park with Morgan and Joe (and their sweet pup!) this past weekend. I’ve known Morgan since college and her sweet, effervescent personality is the type that makes you feel like you’ve been best friends your whole lives within minutes of meeting her. I’m so glad she has found her match in Joe, who’s personality seems to be the exact perfect counterpart to her own. I can’t wait to celebrate these two kind-hearted souls when they marry next spring!

Photographing Emily and Ryan’s waterfront wedding this Saturday was an absolute pleasure.
Despite some last minute hiccups, Emily was calm and sweet all day, simply excited to be marrying the love of her life. And everything came off perfectly. The ceremony was performed by her father and stepmother and was full of beautiful words and laughs, and they danced the rest of the night away with their energetic group of family and friends overlooking a stunning sunset at the Ropewalk. Here are a few favorites of Emily and Ryan and their perfect day.

Within minutes of arriving to Cody and Krista’s venue this past weekend I already knew this wedding would be a favorite. I’ve known Cody for a while now (he’s a long time friend of my husbands) and he could not have picked a more beautiful, evenly matched partner in Krista. Beyond being a complete stunner, she has a calmness and sense of humor that temper perfectly with Cody, making them such a joy to be around. And their wedding was nothing short of phenomenal.
Being local to the island, Krista and Cody looked within the Chincoteague community to pull together an absolutely stunning celebration. With the help of the groom’s mother and some wonderful friends and family no detail was overlooked, and no details lacked in Eastern Shore charm. From the pristine private residence where the reception and ceremony took place, to the locally made wine and beer, and even flowers cut from the groom’s mother’s garden, every minute detail screamed Krista and Cody. While most people know Chincoteague for the ocean and beaches, they showcased the lesser known beauty of their home; the soft marshes, pines, and still waters that reflect the true day to day beauty of this little town.
Their day was nothing short of incredible. Emotionally, there were more tears of joy than I could even capture, and more laughter than you can imagine. Visually, the enchanting decor and setting and Krista’s timeless style make for a photographer’s dream. And with that I’ll quit raving and let you see for yourselves.

There were so many unique, beautiful, and flat out fun things about Megan and Shawn’s wedding that I barely know where to start. We began the day at the 1848 Island Manor house on Chincoteague, a stunning, quaint venue that never disappoints. Megan and Shawn opted for a first look, with a hilarious twist involving Megan’s biggest “competition” for Shawn’s affections. The ceremony took place on Assateague Island with another really unique addition-the KOA Trolley delivered the guests and bridal party to the site making for a fun start to the ceremony. While the trolley and location were impressive enough alone, it was the couple’s emotional, heart felt vows that really stole the show. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many tears and smiles combined in one place. The reception followed back at the 1848 Island Manor House with an extremely fun, energetic crowd. Hilarious speeches and an awesome replacement to the glass clinking tradition, the “Pour Four More Oar” (as you can tell from the pictures it is definitely a party starter!) rounded out the events for the day, followed by tons of dancing, laughter, and hugs deep into the night.
