Yesterday, we got to spend the most wonderful afternoon with Jen and Chris for their wedding at the Lorien Hotel & Spa. These two are fabulous, as always, and I couldn't wait to share a couple sneak peeks from their day!

The holiday season got the best of me, and I let my blogging fall to the wayside. I can't believe how many sessions I never posted! Back in October, I shot alongside Peter Bang for Sarah and Jason's wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. It was a beautiful Sunday on the beach in Annapolis. We luckily had perfect weather and a beautiful bride and groom! Here are a couple of my favorite images from the day.

I have been looking forward to this wedding since February. You may remember Lindsay and Derek's engagement session at the National Arboretum. I knew that if we had a blast outside in the middle of winter, their wedding on a gorgeous October day was going to be incredible. And it was. The skies were perfectly blue, Lindsay and Derek were incredibly excited for the day, and we even got to drive around in golf carts!
I have lots of favorites from the day, but here are just a few:
Love the fall colors!
Thanks to Jessica from J. Lindsay Hair Designs for doing such a great job on Lindsay's hair. She looked stunning!
Lindsay's dad was so proud!

Kaitlan is one of those people that lights up the room when she walks in. She always has a big smile and a kind word to share. Her happiness is contagious, and she attracts people to her like a magnet. I love that about her. I met Kaitlan at a JMU alumni event on Capitol Hill. Within seconds of meeting her, I knew that she was fabulous. That is why I was thrilled when she asked me to take engagement pictures of her and Adam.
Adam is a Marine, and went to the Naval Academy (where their wedding will be in May). Due to his career, he's been assigned all over the place, and their relationship has spanned many states. Long distance relationships make you cherish all the time you get to spend together, and I know that Kaitlan and Adam will be thankful when they are both living in South Carolina next year.
Kaitlan and Adam, you two are perfect for each other. Congratulations on your engagement! Your Annapolis wedding is going to be spectacular.

Tim and Kristen are two of my all-time favorite people. Brad and I have been friends with Tim longer than anyone else. I met him in fifth grade when we first moved to town. Tim has always been the guy that everyone befriends. He is fun, up for anything, thoughtful, loyal, and an all-around good guy. Having known Tim for such a long time, we knew that Kristen was special when we met her.
Early on in their relationship, we were invited to a party at her house. We had only met her once or twice at that point. We had not met any of her friends, so it was a safe bet that the only other person we'd know was Tim. Low and behold, we showed up and found out that Tim was at the beach and not attending the party. Rather than being awkward, Kristen welcomed us with open arms and took us around to meet every one of her friends. Not once did we feel like outsiders. She has a way of making people feel comfortable, like a life-long friend. It was at that party that I knew I wanted Tim to marry her.
Last month, Tim and Kristen got married at the Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast. It was the perfect day for the perfect couple to tie the knot.
Kristen's dress was amazing. I cannot get over the lace detailing. It suits Kristen well.
I don't think I've ever seen Tim as happy as he was that day.
Catching his first glimpse of Kristen.
[Did you notice Brad there on the left? I shot this wedding solo since Brad was the Best Man. He was thrilled to have that honor.]
She. was. RADIANT.
Kristen may be tired of me saying this, but she and her family look like they are from a TV show. Do you see her mom tucked in right behind the bouquet too? Yea, all of them are gorgeous! Her Dad was beaming all day. Such proud parents!
Tim had a broken foot, but was still able to rock our portrait session.
These two are so in love. In shined through in every shot.
This is one of my favorites.
Tim and Kristen, we love you immensely. We are thrilled to have been with you to celebrate your big day. We look forward to continue celebrating with you until we're all old and gray.

The weather was not super cooperative today, but we managed to get some fabulous photos of Juli and Thomas in between the rain showers for their lovely Annapolis wedding.
Here are a couple that I just had to share!
