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.

Julia & Alex | The Oaks Waterfront Inn wedding | Easton, MD

Julia and Alex were married at The Oaks Waterfront Inn near Easton, MD with an absolutely spectacular outdoor ceremony overlooking the lake. Julia and I go all the way back to college, where we shared an apartment, and her wedding rounded up tons of folks I hadn’t seen in years. I was photographing their escort cards going “Oh hey! Wow, she’s coming!” Also, shooting a friend’s wedding is different than shooting a near-stranger’s wedding. While editing this set of images, I was struck frequently with a compulsion to email Julia yet another preview going “LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL YOU ARE!!” I managed to hold back until right now. Julia and Alex:


We started the day at Serendipity Salon and Spa in St. Michaels, Maryland. It’s the most adorable hair salon possible, but then again, everything in St. Michaels is adorable.

Love Point at Kent Island | Eastern Shore wedding

I’m so pleased to share this beautiful wedding I second shot with Jessica Shepard late last year. The couple was so adorable and joyous and I loved their beachy decorations (and orange touches!). One quick note – before you fall in love with this venue (as I did), know that they have had some serious problems and are currently closed. Too bad – it was such a lovely place for these happy kids:

I don’t often go out to the Eastern Shore – not sure why, just don’t get that many folks asking about it (though I would love to do a beach wedding this year!). So it was really nice to be by the water. Here’s the view from the bride’s hotel suite:

Love Point at Kent Island really was a gorgeous venue. I had to stop the car on the drive in and take some photos.
