Couples that are willing to make a an adventure out of their session are hands down awesome.  Add in these two ACTUALLY being completely awesome on their own and you end up with some of my favorite images of one of the goofiest (in the best possible way), most laid back couples ever.  Brittany and Ryan (and their fox-pup Katana) trekked out to Harper’s Ferry with me this past weekend to do a little exploring and catch a few shots. I’ve been playing around with the idea of offering “adventure” sessions (with the help of Megan at Reverie and Ramble) and forced these two good sports in to being guinea pigs, and it totally paid off. Already excited to spend their big day next May with these kids. Now for a look at their Harper’s Ferry engagement session.

These two.  After more than a decade together a lot of couples kind of fall into place, a kind of comfortableness that replaces romance.  But that is not even the slightest bit true of Tamara and Matt.  Their pure love just overflowed from these two in the form of tears from the moment they saw each other.  It was like seeing them when they fell in love as (barely) teenagers. Also, the dynamic between the two is just…fun. Like, they just genuinely get each other’s sense of humor and energy.  I have to say that I have never, EVER been so impressed with a couples dance skills as I was with Tamara and Matt.  Seriously, I could have just sat and watched them dance together all night (we’re talking a mix between Magic Mike and Patrick Swayze, all perfectly executed).  Tamara and Matt, you two are awesome together and I’m so stoked to share a little glimpse into your day.

I honestly can’t think of a more perfect spot to celebrate your marriage than on the spot that you plan to start your lives together.  Getting married on their own plot of land where soon they will build their home together was only one of the sweet, heartfelt details that made Heather and Hunter’s wedding so special.  From the tear filled vows to the heirloom dried flowers in her bouquet, love and honor was squeezed into every bit of the day.  I’m so glad that I was able to capture these two awesome people and party well into the night with them! Here’s a little look at their wedding amidst the woods under looming trees at their (soon to be) home in Spotsylvania.

Dress: That’s My Dress

Flowers: Bridgette Miller

I can honestly say that I think Allison and Hunter are one of the best matched couples I’ve ever met (not to mention laid back and fun)!  Just in the little time we spent together it was easy to see the perfect balance between the two.  I absolutely loved spending time with these two and witnessing such a cool dynamic, and have absolutely zero doubt that they are in for a very long, very fun marriage.

In case you haven’t noticed, I may or may not be just the smallest bit biased towards twins.  And an even bigger love for twin parents (solidarity, right?!).  So you can imagine how crazy excited I was to hear that Amanda and Tony were bringing their two new little girls down to Chincoteague and wanted some pictures.  It’s always so awesome to reunite with past couples and photograph them from weddings to new families.  And these two sweet little girls were the best. Seriously, so sweet-to the point that if I didn’t already have too many children I’d be all “Mike…more please…” But for real, I’m so happy for this new family and am so excited for the crazy love-filled life that’s coming their way.

Photographing seniors is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  It is so cool spending time with these young women, full of energy and optimism, and Jessie was no exception.  There are a ton of things that made this session awesome (um cotton candy sunset, vintage VW van?), but first let’s talk about those big brown eyes. As a fellow brown eyed lady I can’t help but have a little bias there, but seriously how gorgeous are they? Second, she spotted some pretty awesome walls and colors that really fit her personality and that I totally love.  AND she let me drag her into possibly the grossest muck, filled with all kinds of creatures, without a single complaint, which makes her the best.

Pockets on wedding gowns and groom’s that will carry their ladies shoes are two of my new favorite things. Just saying.
Venke and Heath’s gorgeous Herrington Bay wedding this past weekend was not only crazy fun but absolutely stunning. Every detail was covered-the bridesmaids even had robes in colors that somehow fit each one perfectly. Add in the fact that these two are total babes and have the most fun group of friends and family and I was in photographer’s heaven. As you know I totally suck at all this words business but that’s ok because this wedding is a real beaut to look at-

Vendors:

 

Dress: Allure

Flowers: Lillie Barrett

Venue/Catering: Herrington on the Bay

Cake: Sweet Sue’s Bakeshop

HMU: Debby Todd and Jeannine Jones

I met Hope this past week to commemorate one of the bigger events in any ladies life, the end of traditional schooling and her entrance into the “real” world (I hate that term, I mean what kind of world is it if it’s not always real? But you get the point). I drug her literally through waves and bugs for her session (real world prep, right?) and she was the absolute best sport. She is not only beautiful externally, but she has a sweet, intelligent soul and it’s very clear that whatever she decides to do she will excel at it, and I wish her nothing but the best.

Susan and Brandon are one of those couples where I knew immediately that I wanted to capture their wedding. They are both so sweet and open, and their laid back ceremony was both beautiful and personal. I am so excited to share a little peak at their ocean front ceremony from this past weekend. Enjoy!

Scotland2018_0018

Mike and I visited Scotland a year and a half ago and were instantly in love with the culture and amazing landscape.  Apparently we had nothing but great things to say about it because my parents decided it would be a perfect place for our family vacation this year!  This was the first family vacation for us in probably close to 10 years (?) and we were more than thrilled to be returning to Scotland, this time with my parents and sister to share it with.  Oh, and those three little boys of ours :).  This was their first time out of the country and their first flights, and they totally nailed it.  I had no doubt they would (*cough cough*). But seriously, they were amazing and I’m so glad I got to share something this amazing with them.  Now all they want to do is climb mountains and I am totally onboard with that.

Anyway, I rarely put personal posts on here so I thought I’d share a little bit of our album.  Enjoy!

The boys are always begging to climb “big mountains”, so naturally we had to pull over as soon as we entered the Highlands.

The Lost Valley.  We just drove by here last time and I swore if we ever made it back I was hiking here.  With three kids the hike was more of a mild stroll, but I am a happy lady.

The boys had three requests for this trip. First, eat shortbread cookies
(duh. I already planned on that being the staple of my diet here so done and done). Second, climb big mountains. And third, throw rocks in water.  Men of simple pleasures.

Until next time, Scotland…
FYI, our planning and itinerary was executed by my awesome sister, Megan, of Reverie and Ramble.  She is a genius at all things travel and coordination, so check her out if you’re in the market for a really unique, all encompassing, off the beaten path adventure (she found us a legit Speak Easy in the heart of Edinburgh, hidden entrance and all. Just saying…girl is good).
