A Baltimore backyard wedding
Shannon and her sister, Darby, are very close, and they had so much fun getting Shannon dressed.
I stood outside in the rain to get some natural light for this portrait of Shannon. She was squatting in the doorway.
The flowers by Teresa Kastner of Floral Impressions were exquisite!
Oops! Dino almost dropped the ring. Nice catch.
The sun came out moments before the B&G exited the church at Loyola College Alumni Chapel. It was a miracle!
I passed this horse pasture on my way to Shannon’s house. I was SO EXCITED to be able to stop for pictures later to capture the scene with blue skies. The horses were frisky and came running right up to us.
I love this shot by Kathy! It’s very unusual to get a nice shot of the lineup before the intros. This one is gorgeous and really sets the scene.
Dino and his mom.
The Boticelli painting "Primavera" from my Italian Renaissance days in Florence came to mind when I saw the girls chatting under the willow tree.
Shannon’s dad, Pat, and his mom.
"Butterfly Kisses" for the last dance with dad.

An Annapolis Naval Academy Wedding
What an exciting time for these young lovers … they graduated from the Naval Academy and got married all in the same weekend! Sarah and Greg were commissioned as 2nd Lieutenants in the Marine Corps. Following basic training they will report to Pensacola, Florida, for flight training as Naval aviators.
Monica and I loved being able to help capture the memories of such an important day in the lives of this young and ambitious couple. And, oh, being surrounded by young men in uniform — what’s not to love about that?!
We had a few minutes to kill while hiding from Monica and the guys before the ceremony. Someone suggested we go over to the fountain for pictures. I got some cool shots of the girls through the cascading water, but this one is even more unusual.
Bridesmaid Daphne watches as Sarah and her mom share a special moment.
Cool lineup of the guys and use of wide angle by Monica!
Junior Groomsman Danny checks out the big boys and their toys.
Classic Monica ring shot!
I caught this shot while setting up for the ceremony. The USNA Chapel has such dramatic light streaming in through the high windows. I love how the light catches the texture of the monogram and casts dark shadows. The white gloves add to the drama.
It’s quite a trek to the altar.
Sarah’s mom requested this classic shot. It’s usually done before or after the ceremony, but I agreed to try it during the recessional even if the wedding party gets backed up ( I got yelled at, but it was worth it!)
The guys preparing to exit the church for the sword arch.
Walking over to Bancroft Hall for more pics before heading over to the reception at Yellowfin. We were in heaven with the soft, beautiful light and grandiose architecture.
Inka Browne of Great Expectations by Inka created the bouquets for the wedding!
Monica shot tight for the first dance.
I shot wide!
"You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling" performed by the groomsmen. Even better than Tom Cruise.

A multicultural wedding in Millersville, MD
Kim’s 4 nieces were too cute, looking in every direction!
The studly Oscar.
I just loved Cole’s look…a young Christopher Walken!
My assistant, Monica Hoeffelmurphy, hung out with the guys before the wedding…let’s hope that is not poison ivy!
Oscar looked like he had been sent to the back of the classroom for a timeout.
The afternoon sun offered some nice light in the church, with flowers provided by Weddingscapes.
Kim and Oscar looked lovely under this giant oak tree, although the pollen was a bit much for his allergies.
Monica, grabbed this nice shot of the rings.
These centerpieces just popped when we lit them.
Oscar and Kim taking their first dance.
Lining up for a look at the planes from BWI.
