Amanda and Clay’s hipster barn wedding was totally my jam! Held at Clay’s family estate, his mom worked tirelessly to create a rustic and hipster chic environment that was a big hit with the guests. Family and friends gathered from all over, including Florida and Colorado. Amanda and Clay have, after all, settled in Colorado in the gorgeous mountains! They infused their cool, outdoorsy style into every detail of the wedding. Check out the “honeymoon suite” below!

Capturing weddings of friends and their relatives always adds a special dimension. Amanda’s mom and I developed science curriculum together at Frederick Community College! As you can see, Amanda has so much mama love in her heart. <3 Pam is an amazing mama and scientist! Proud to be her friend.

These detail and  getting ready shots you see first are some of my favorites. They give the artist the best chance at being creative with capturing those pre-wedding jitters and all the chaos that leads to the ceremony! Months and months (and sometimes years) of planning come down to these last couple hours that culminate in a ritual where you pledge your love forever to the person standing in front of you. You want to remember those feelings, I promise! And, your photos will retell your wedding day story.

These two amazing little humans rock my world and make my heart so happy. I take this mom thing pretty seriously and escaping to spend moments with them at the ocean… my heart explodes. These tiny features are changing, and they constantly remind me that they’re growing up. Family trips are my favorite way to stop time and just revel in how amazing they are.

So here are three of my fave things: my dynamic duo. the ocean.

Ohhhhh Harper’s Ferry you slay! I’m always on the hunt for new and adventurous locations for engagement sessions. Harper’s Ferry has been one of my favorite tiny towns to getaway to. The cool, hipster vibe downtown and the gorgeous sunset perfectly complemented Morgan and Brody’s fun-loving energy. Look at that sweet nose kiss!

Brody called me off a recommendation from his friend and one of my rockstar clients. We chatted and got the ball rolling on the engagement session and wedding package. The thing that stuck with me was when Brody mentioned that he didn’t feel photogenic. I think, myself included, that it’s tough to feel comfortable in front of the camera. I take my job in making you relax and have fun SERIOUSLY. Your photo session is not just about great images, it’s also about the EXPERIENCE. An upbeat, relaxed photo session is my goal each and every time. And these two are such a blast! I can’t wait to capture their wedding next summer!

Side note: Brody gifted these dresses to Morgan. Great taste, Brody! 😀

Spahr and family have been using me as their Deep Creek and Cumberland family photographer since 2014. This is our FOURTH year capturing these littles and it’s quickly become a favorite annual tradition of mine! It’s my Spahr+Audrey+Bennett time where we run, play, and they share their love with me. We switch up locations and outfits each year, but really the amount of fun we have remains incredible. What better way to capture your real kiddos than romping around with some blossoms in the background? Next year, guys, I say we got to the beach!

Oh, sweet family! So happy to see you again!

Bennett does tricks! Each year he shows me what he’s learned! He did this one last year too. 😀
