For the past few months I have wanted to begin the process of becoming more of a destination wedding photographer and photographing Nick and Sarah’s wedding made me even more excited to start this part of my business! Nick and my husband, Nick, worked together here in Maryland at Fort Meade. When my husband was asked to be in his wedding, Nick and Sarah asked me if I would be up for photographing their wedding day! And I was so honored to be asked!
The day started out with a huge rain and wind storms hat rolled through early morning and ended up shutting off the power in the southern Kansas City area including the church and the hotels that guest were staying at. The guys had gone to a waterpark that morning and all of the groomsmen needed somewhere to shower.. Luckily Sarah’s moms house had power but I can’t imagine how much her water bill went up… The worst part, the power was out in the church and the A/C was not working. It was right around 90 degrees and straight sun all day! Luckily we had enough power from the generator so we could have lights. Even when complications arise, we find a way to make due and make everything work out.
It was such an honor to capture Nick and Sarah’s wedding day <3
This is the first time I have ever seen the bride and groom walk down the aisle together!! This was their first look <3
Huge shoutout to Chelsea, Sarah’s maid of honor, and her family for allowing us to use their property for portraits!! <3
This was the best way to end the evening. Nick had an idea to have all of their parental figures and grandparents stand around them while they sit at the piano. So much emotion and so much love surrounds Nick + Sarah <3
If you like this wedding, you would love to see another destination wedding that I photographed in Canada!
COVID-19 has definitely changed a lot this year in so many ways from how we style and celebrate milestones to how we socialize with friends and family. This past week Chandler asked me for some ideas of how to capture her birthday which just so happened to be the last day of her lock in […]
A little backstory before product photography came into my life… I started really getting into photographing other people when we were in Florida in 2015. We then moved to Maryland in December of 2015 and that is when my business grew. I had regular clients, weddings, second shot a lot of weddings, and finally began […]
I remember how terribly inconsistent I was with poses during an engagement session back when I started photography and my oh my.. Do you remember Anna? Back in July of 2016 I was invited to a styled shoot by a friend 30 minutes before it started. I ended up getting stuck in traffic on […]
One thing I have learned from this quarantine (as a family photographer) is that there is always more work that can be done to work on your craft. Even if that does not include shooting. I am going back through older sessions and came across this session with my best friend Natalie of Natalie Grace […]
If you are stationed in Germany, you have most likely been to Burg Lichtenberg at least a handful of times. This is one of my favorite castles to go to for family sessions. The kids love to run around and play and the adults can really take in the scenery around Burg Lichtenberg. Going to this […]
What is the first thing an engagement photographer thinks of when a client says they want to do their photos in Washington DC? Sunrise. Daily I go back and forth between whether or not I like sunrise or sunset better. I have to say though after Julie + Jordan’s engagement session, I prefer the lighting […]
