Anna and Justin were married at the incredibly beautiful Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center out on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. In my many years of shooting and the 100+ weddings I’ve seen, they were the first to have a fun run (the concept of running being fun is new as well!) and also the first to have an Easter egg hunt! They planned such a wonderful, relaxed, nature-filled day for their guests.
Look how much fun running is!
I was cracking up at the incredible hiding skills of the egg-hiders. To be fair, most of the kids were toddlers.
After a relaxing morning enjoying the scenery, weather and location, our heroes packed up and headed to the Kent Island Hilton Garden Inn.
While getting some nature scenes for Anna and Justin (you’ll see one below) during the morning, I went along their fun run route and scoped out this stunning pine grove. It was at the very top of my list to do portraits, and these two made no objections.
Many thanks, as always, to my intrepid second shooter Julia, who snagged the lovely portrait below.
When there’s a dock, you take photos on the dock.
After the toasts, and the eats, it was time for some hard-core partying and dancing.
So I have no idea what the backstory is here, but these necklaces with shotglasses on them were passed all over the dancefloor.
Their friends and family helped decorate the center.
And folks, they decimated the photobooth. I had to change batteries twice!
Congratulations, you guys!
