I recently met up with Kim and Ryan at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA for their engagement session. We spent a few hours exploring the perfectly landscaped gardens and we had a great time shooting throughout the afternoon. Longwood Gardens is one of my favorite locations for engagement sessions, and you really can't beat the endless variety of elegant gardens and romantic backdrops! No matter what season it is, there is always something beautiful in bloom and different to see. I can't wait for Kim and Ryan's Monterre Vineyards wedding next year! Here are some of my favorites from their gorgeous engagement session!Read More
Last month, I photographed a beautifully styled shoot designed by amazing wedding planner and designer Heather Benge of Heather Benge Events at the stunning George Peabody Library in Baltimore, MD. The George Peabody Library provided the perfect romantic backdrop for the elegant and modern style of this wedding inspiration shoot. Our bride Lissa Bergmann wore a beautiful strapless gown, and bridesmaids Katelyn Laremore and Alyssa Smith were styled to perfection in blush and gold gowns provided by Francesca's Bridal. Groom Erik Bergmann complemented the blush and gold color scheme with a blue suit and brown leather shoes.
The talented hair and makeup artists of Behind the Veil did an amazing job on the girls with a nice variety of hairstyles speckled with flowers and beautifully done makeup. J Starr's Flower Barn really tied the different parts of this shoot together with a stunning floral alter, a floral table arch and gorgeous bouquets made completely of locally grown flowers from Clear Ridge Nursery, Honeybee Flower Farm and Seaberry Farm. By incorporating the floral and metallic elements of this shoot, The Cake Studio made one of the most impressive cakes I have ever seen. The four tier cake featured contrasting textures, a metallic pop, and a fresh floral look of handmade fondant flowers. Check out some of my favorite photos from the shoot in the gallery below!Read More
A few weeks ago, I traveled down to Baltimore, Maryland for Melissa and Stephen's engagement session. This session had it all - a beautiful waterfront, historic architecture and an amazing view overlooking the city. And we couldn't have asked for better weather or a more gorgeous sunset! We started the engagement session in historic Federal Hill before taking a stroll around the Inner Harbor. We then headed up to the top of Federal Hill Park for a spectacular skyline view and watched the sun set over Charm City. Once the city lit up, we took a few night portraits and ended the session by the American Visionary Art Museum. Here are some of my favorites from their session.Read More
