Emily & Zach | Woodend Nature Sanctuary Wedding | Silver Spring, MD

Emily and Zach were married at one of my favorite venues in the area, Woodend Nature Sanctuary. Not ones to let a little rain get them down, they had an emotional and very sweet ceremony filled with tears and laughter and then danced the night away. These two really know how to take care of each other.

Big shout-out to Katie from The Plannery, who helped make Emily and Zach’s day totally beautiful and flawless. She is such a great planner, guys – hire her.

Thanks, as always, to the wonderful Julia for all the great extra angles and chilling-with-the-boys time.

The “bridal suite” at Woodend is really pretty and it has this ginormous mirror for excellent composition and also checking-yourself-out-ness.

A few hugs before Emily rushed off to first look.

Shawn, Randall & Baby R | Maryland Documentary Family Photography

One of the joys of being a part of such a big moment in my clients’ lives is watching them grow from there. I come in at a big transition, and sometimes I get called back in for other changes, like new additions. Shawn and Randall had Baby R just a couple weeks before I came to their house to do a few portraits and document a little sliver of their lives as new parents.

We shot in their home, as that is where new parents spend all of their time. I believe the “normal” is beautiful – the wonder, discovery, gratitude and also the exhaustion, the spit-ups, the poopy diapers. Life is short. Photos help. Doggies too.

(S&R – don’t worry. I gave you a ton of color photos too. I just thought the black and white worked well for the setting.)
