I’m a huge fan of “different.” Trying something new, going against the norm, standing out in some way…in my photography, it gives me a thrill and renewed sense of creativity! When it comes to portrait sessions, locations like local parks are normally thought to be best. And what about weddings? A church ceremony followed by a ballroom reception can be pretty normal. But what about a waterskiing engagement session and mountaintop wedding with just 20 guests? Those are different, and those are adventures that I highly encourage!  




Heather and Nic Renae and Josh’s Destination Wedding In The Bahamas It was my first wedding outside the U.S. Oceanfront condos, a white sandy beach, turquoise blue waters, snorkeling the morning of the wedding, and paying $30 for bologna sandwiches and a bag of chips. It was a beyond-beautiful adventure that I was so honored to capture! The Post »
Casey Jo and Ryan Mary and Tyler’s Mountaintop Wedding Ceremony What mattered most was that they get married at Dolly Sods where they got engaged. They both wore hiking sandals as part of their bride-groom attire and said “I do” on top of a mountain in front of a small group of family and friends. A late-evening dinner followed in a cabin (after some portraits in the rain!) and a large reception was celebrated two months later. It’s really a great idea, and it was an awesome adventure to experience! The Post »
Mary Ann & Matt Savanna’s Snowy Maternity Session While a lot of people seem to be “afraid” of pictures in the cold and snow, Savanna was not. Even pregnant and sometimes uncomfortable, she was up for the adventure! We met at the beautiful Swallow Falls State Park in Garrett County, MD and embraced the wintry conditions. And that produced some of my favorite maternity portraits of all time! The Post »
Danielle and Eric Lauren and Brad’s Waterskiing Engagement Session We decided to meet at 6:30am because it’s best to ski on Deep Creek Lake early in the morning. We snapped some portraits on shore as the sun was rising and then the adventure! I hooked up my zoom lens and Lauren and Brad strapped on their skis and wakeboard. It was one of the coolest, most exciting sessions I’ve photographed! The Post »
