Megan, Pritpal & family | newborn documentary family photography | Bethesda, MD

I’ve had the pleasure of documenting several of Megan and Pritpal and family’s major life milestones. Their engagement, then their wedding, then moving into a beautiful new house, and last week I met a tiny new person they created out of thin air. Baby S was incredibly good for the whole shoot – not even falling asleep, as nine-day-old tiny people tend to do.

Jack makes an excellent big brother.

They have an amazing house. It was pretty awesome to shoot in when it was empty and now that they’ve filled it with some really sweet decor, it’s irresistible for compositions and things.

Stacy & Jeremy | Poe Museum wedding | Maymont Gardens | Richmond, VA

Stacy called me up a couple weeks ago about me photographing her wedding. She and her fiancé were through with planning and just wanted to be hitched already. And since there was a Rob Zombie concert happening in that night, Richmond seemed a fine place to tie the knot. We rocked out some pretty, then rolled over to the Edgar Allen Poe Museum to get these two wed.

We met up at Maymont Gardens, which is a truly beautiful place in the middle of Richmond. I must admit I don’t get down there too often but I’d go back to scope out the rest of the park.

A little stopover for some celebratory shots.

And it was wedding time. Richmond was in the midst of some enormous bike “race” that had half the city blocked off and closed down. So the Poe Museum wasn’t even open. Undeterred, these two hopped in the doorway and did their thing.

Anna & Justin | Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center | Eastern Shore, Maryland

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.
