Sweet Hairafter | Head shots

We photographed something different for a change! These beautiful ladies are all clients/friends of the talented hair stylists, Denise Sharpe + Kylie Hoben, of Sweet Hairafter in Bethesda, MD. Denise + Kylie needed some new portfolio shots for their website, and we were happy to capture their gorgeous work! With the help of a team of makeup artists and assistants, they worked fast and furiously to give these ladies fabulous new looks and then send them our way to be photographed. We set up our backdrop and off-camera lighting in a nearby hallway and shot away for a few hours. We're so happy with the results. Denise is a dear friend of mine and has cut my hair for years - she also did my hair for our wedding! If you're a future bride or just need a great new stylist, definitely check out Sweet Hairafter!

Sara + Zack | A Rehearsal Dinner on the Chesapeake Bay

Bringing their native Maryland and Louisiana roots together, Sara + Zack held their rehearsal dinner on a beautiful, summer evening at the Regatta Pavilion Room at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay in Cambridge, MD. The ever-amazing team from Ritzy Bee Events coordinated all of the details and everything ran perfectly, as always. Nautical inspired centerpieces, refreshing cocktails, freshly picked crabs in Old Bay-rimmed martini glasses, hilarious speeches, spiked milkshakes, popcorn, and s'mores...it was a night to remember.

Deirdre + Scott | Engaged

Fells Point Engagement, Maria Vicencio Photography

We've photographed Scott's family a few times and love working with them, so we were happy when we heard he was engaged to Deirdre and they wanted us to photograph the wedding, too! We spent a brisk afternoon with Deirdre + Scott in Fells Point and walked to their favorite spots, including the bar where they had their first date. We even got a few shots with Scott's other love - his Harley. We can't wait for their wedding in October!

Cory + Patrick | A Woodlawn Manor Wedding

The forecast was calling for rain on Cory + Patrick's wedding day, but Cory told her family she wasn't worried. She explained that she had emailed God at god.com about the weather and it would be fine. Turns out He listened, and the rain held off for them :) The day started at the Hyatt Regency in Bethesda where Cory relaxed and watched football while getting her hair + makeup done, and Patrick hung out at Guapo's with his boys. Then they traveled to Woodlawn Manor, a gorgeous historic property in Sandy Spring, MD. The sun peeked out and Cory + Patrick were married by Patrick's uncle in a touching ceremony, outside in front of the gazebo like they had always wanted. The night ended with juicy pulled pork + BBQ chicken sandwiches, mini-cheesecakes, and an AMAZING dance party. It was an awesome celebration.

Missy + Tu | Engaged

Hallcrest Vineyards

My dear cousin Missy is getting married to her wonderful fiance, Tu, at the end of this month. We love them both and were honored when they asked us to take their engagement pictures in California! We made the most of our 2 days with them and visited their favorite places, including Hallcrest Vineyards in Santa Cruz, the Redwood Forest, downtown Oakland, and Peju Winery in Napa. It was an amazing weekend! I can't wait for their wedding celebration in a few weeks!

Jamie + Joey | Fall Fun

Yes, we are alive! :) Thank you for visiting our neglected blog! 2011 was a super busy year, and it ended with me in the hospital for a few weeks due to complications from routine surgery. Thankfully, I am fully recovered and feeling great! We're very excited for this year and getting to work with even more amazing couples and families. We are so blessed. Lots to share, but for now, here's a fun moment from Jamie + Joey's fall wedding at Antrim 1844. Their bridal party rocked.

All monies raised will support the Down Syndrome Network of Montgomery County (check out Vinnie's pic on their homepage!), The ARC of Montgomery County, and the NDSS. Please consider donating to this important cause - any amount will help!

To donate, visit our personal fundraising page HERE. Thanks for your support!

Here are some pictures of our lovable, huggable Vinnie at his first five Buddy Walks from 2006 to 2010.

Sara + Zack | Engaged

NYC engagement session

Sara + Zack met during their freshman year at University of Pennsylvania and fell in love. Seven years later, Zack took Sara to Rome and surprised her with an incredible proposal. What's even more incredible is Zack flew both of their families out to Rome, so they could surprise Sara and take part in the celebration, as well. The story is amazing. We love these two and are so happy for them! They live in NYC, so we thought an engagement session at their favorite spots in the city would be fitting. Their wedding was earlier this month in Cambridge, MD - we can't wait to share those pics, too!

Engagement session at the National Gallery of Art, Maria Vicencio Photography

We spent an awesome morning with Meghan + Ajay over Memorial Day weekend. We met them at the WWII Memorial where they had their first date. Then bagels and silliness ensued. We absolutely loved hanging out with these two!


Ajay proposed to Meghan over bagels, and they eat them every Saturday. So of course we had to include bagels in their pics :)



They originally wanted to have their wedding at a museum, so the National Gallery of Art was a perfect location to end their session. We're officially in love with this place.


Their miming skills are ridiculously awesome.


Meghan + Ajay - can't wait for next summer! :)
