In April, I hiked up to Stony Man Summit in Shenandoah National Park with Rachel and Brandon for their anniversary portrait session! These two lovebirds celebrate their fourth anniversary later this month so they put on their wedding attire and hit the trail in paisley and lace! The weather was perfect — 70 degrees, clear skies, and incredible colors over the valley as the sun went down.

Rachel and I are big planners when it comes to our hiking dates and mountaintop photo ops. We discussed options like putting her dress on at the trailhead or waiting until we reached the summit to make it easier for her to walk, and exchanged way too many texts about flower crowns. So, when I walked into Skyland, I was quite surprised to see her already dressed and ready to go with hiking boots under her dress! It was quite a scene: I was gasping at seeing her in her wedding dress once again and the barista was ooing, ahhing, and shouting “congratulations” from behind the coffee bar! We joked that it was their wedding day throughout the session and even toasted with champagne!

I’m so happy for these two as they celebrate another year as Mr + Mrs! And I’m very grateful for yet another opportunity to photograph one of my first wedding couples! These two have been with me since the beginning five years ago! Happy Anniversary, B+R!

Late last month, I met Megan and Hayes for a maternity portrait session in the mountain town of Harper’s Ferry. Despite the crisp morning air (read: cold, windy, goosebumps), we walked along the water’s edge catching up on work and school and talking nurseries and baby planning. Where do I start with these two?! First, Hayes is my cousin and these two trusted in me to photograph their wedding way back in 2014 (my first wedding ever)! I’ve also captured their engagement in the fields where they went to college, their adorable and lively foster girls who lived with them for a year, their rescued pet pigs, and now this special time as they await the arrival of their baby boy. I couldn’t be more excited for these two as they start this next adventure together! Congratulations! Can’t wait to meet your little one!

Earlier this month, I met Katie and Karl at the Howard County Conservancy for a maternity portrait session before their first baby makes his or her appearance. That’s right, the baby’s gender will be a surprise to them! How exciting! I was so glad to finally meet these two, who are my cousin Laura’s in-laws, after hearing about their moves from state-to-state and family happenings over the years. As we walked through the fields, they never stopped smiling and laughing and their sweet and fun-loving nature definitely shows in these photos! Congratulations to Katie and Karl – can’t wait to hear when Baby B enters the world!
