Alex and Bethany were referred to me by Derek+Diane, and I am over the moon that I get to work with these two love birds. Love oozes from every cell in their beings and being their Cumberland Wedding Photographer this Fall is a dream! These two chose StoneBridge as their venue to celebrate with their closest friends and family.

We decided to capture their engagement session at Deep Creek Lake! Nothing beats wind in your hair, water at your feet, and the sun shining down on you! The entire reason to have an engagement session, besides the memories and documentation of your love, is to practice! This meeting gives me the chance to see the two of you and how you react to my camera in the mix. Let’s face it, for the most part, taking pictures can be stressful and a bit scary. I mean… will I look okay in front of the lens? Engagement sessions give me the opportunity to find your best angles and to determine how much prompting and un-posing you may need on your wedding day. I say un-posing because while I am completely hands-on and will guide you, I aim for candid-style shots that show authentic connections. You’ll see very few photos, if any, where the couple is cheesing at the camera because that isn’t what I do. 😉 I want real and raw, because THOSE are the moments you’ll cherish forever!

Seeeeeeeee the nose bump and smiles? I mean, this is what it is ALLLLL about!

  • Seriously stunning engagement photos! I love how you captured their genuine love and all the little details alongside. The black and whites are some of my favorites!ReplyCancel

This incredible family has been documenting their lives with me for years! First with Nathan, the big brother here, and now with little brother Ben. Christina and Josh are two incredible humans, and I’m so honored to provide these memories for their family.

I wondered how Nate was going to react to his new little brother. Christina said at first, Nathan didn’t pay too much attention but seemed to warm up a bit. I related to her with the story of when Colin (my youngest) was born, his brother Declan took one look at the baby and said, “No.” Simple. And firm. Ha! They’re the best of friends now, and I hope the same comes true for these adorable brothers. Congrats, Christina and Josh! You make beautiful babies!

Whoa, gorgeous family! Capturing Cumberland and Deep Creek Lake maternity photography is quite a treat because not only do I get to spend time with a glowing mama, but we also played at sunset. Bonus: In a few weeks I’ll get to snuggle her new baby! Maternity sessions are such an important way to document this huge milestone in your life. Glowing mama and growing family! Your littles will want to look back on these moments, and your photographs will show them just how excited the family was for their arrival. Maternity sessions are typically captured between 32 and 36 weeks, and we can go as easy as you need or be as adventurous as you want! I’ll help you select a location – in your home or outdoors – and outfits! This process is meant to be FUN and EASY, so I’ll hold your hand! What are you waiting for?!

 

You think Little Miss Delaney is excited about her baby bro? Yup. You betcha!

Harper’s mama and I met at a wedding I captured in Gaithersburg. We excitedly discussed her pregnancy and potentially capturing newborn memories. Sarah contacted me several months after the wedding, and she discussed the floral headband she wanted to use for her baby’s session. Being the lover of all thing nature, I was ecstatic to include such whimsical elements into the session. Doesn’t Harper make the sweetest little flower child??

This sweet bug didn’t want to sleep at first, but again, I always win out on this. Warmth, full tummies, and snuggles always soothe these littles to sleep. Harper was fast asleep for the rest of her session. Isn’t she a sweetpea?!
