This past Saturday, my husband and I photographed Liz and Lenny’s wedding in Baltimore. They are a perfect example of photography couples becoming wonderful friends! Since many months ago, when we met up in Annapolis to do E-pics (and realized the dock was completely under construction) then met up at the Inner Harbor for E-pics *round 2*, we have really come to love this couple! The wedding just completed an awesome journey through the past year of planning the wedding.
We began the day at the Hampton Inn taking getting ready pictures, followed by the ceremony at a Baptist church, and a reception at Windows on the Bay. It was the most adorable day – the excitement, even when Liz was yelling at her sister, was absolutely amazing and there were so many moments throughout the day that I had to remind myself I was actually working and to cut out the tearing up.
I don’t know how we are going to narrow down pictures for their album because it could be argued that almost every one of them plays an integral role in telling their fairytale. Here are a few…
Liz’s friends told me this was a staple picture — apparently this is a daily process…
Something ‘blue’ from Lenny!
Windows on the Bay
Jason took this picture … he’s awesome!
Lenny’s mom teared up … and when she saw my camera, she wasn’t happy that the moment would last forever…
Best cake EVER!
Love the flower girl … she was beautiful!
Yesterday afternoon, I met up with a friend I work with and her two brothers to take some photos as a present to their parents. We ended up with a beautiful afternoon (right before a horrendous wind storm) so we definitely lucked out! Definitely a fun family!
We’ve been on the road so much recently that I keep neglecting to put up a few pictures I took when my husband and I were at my parents’ house for a few days. I’ll give some explanations under each picture:
Ciana constantly sticks her tongue out … she’s about 5 months old in this picture.
Tongue out again….
Kona, our new puppy, trying to cuddle up to her big sister – Leia, on the other hand, is not convinced they were meant to be best friends yet…
These are my dad’s two boxers – Kona was fascinated by them! We joked that she thinks if she keeps eating, she will get to be their size. Too bad she’s done growing.
Kona ended up leaping over the baby gate to snuggle up to the boys when they were napping one evening. We couldn’t find her and then looking in there and she was laying right between them.
In the late afternoon, I met up with my school’s principal and her family at Occoquan Regional Park. It was a beautiful location … apparently many other people think the same! Once we met up, we shot at a few different locations, trying to avoid the crowds of boat enthusiasts. With the oldest son home from college and the next in line heading to college in the fall, it was the perfect opportunity to get some of those last family portraits before pulling everyone from different locations!
I spent this afternoon with the Evans family – all 16 of them! What a wonderful family!! I can’t say enough about how cool it was to watch the interactions between siblings, in laws, and cousins through the generations. Coming from a big family, I loved every minute of it! Here are just a few of the shots from the day – too many to choose from!
Yesterday morning, I had the pleasure of spending an hour with an almost-one-year-old named Carter. She is such a little explorer and it was so fun to walk around with a camera, exploring with her! We have some great pictures to show off at her birthday party in a couple of weeks – here are some of my favorites…
