The temps are killer this week, so good thing I have plenty of pretty things to edit indoors!!
Long gone are the days of stiff, formal, posed engagement sessions— and AMEN to that! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Though these frames were taken over the course of just a few seconds, they are goofy, real, joy filled images that will be cherished forever! Just look at those smiles! It’s moments like these that make me so grateful to be behind the camera telling love stories 💛
It’s another wedding Saturday! Headed to southern Maryland today for what looks like a gorgeous day with some even more beautiful people! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wedding day tip: make sure your getting ready areas are well lit, preferably with natural light! If your bridal suite is lacking windows or doesn’t give you enough room to breathe and twirl around a bit, no worries— we will still be sure to find a spot to grab some dreamy, romantic getting ready and detail shots!
“And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Loving these long summer days and our adventures so far...and it’s just this beginning! Tell me what your days have been filled with lately! ☀️🌿 👨👩👦👦
Wrapping up some wedding editing before taking some much needed time off with family for the holiday! Cue the pretty images of happy dancing, sweet moments between bride and groom, celebratory hugs and cheers, and of course, the cake! 😊️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My favorite cake designs are clean and simple with stunning floral details that compliment the couples color palette! When it’s almost too pretty to eat, it’s a winner in my book! 🌸 🌿 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stunning cake from@amyssweetbakeshop from an @designsanctuary event at @rosewood_farms Flowers: @pennockfloral @dvflora @greenleafwholesale @ronalds.pampas.grass @sieckwrightfloralproducts @alexandrafarms Other Hosts: @freshdesignsflorist @shannonwellingtonwedding
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3 More Days Til Summer Vacation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Counting down the hours until this girl has some much needed time for rest and time for catching up on so many elements behind the scenes!
Headed out for another gorgeous wedding day Saturday, this time at the fabulous @tylergardenweddings! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wedding day tip: make sure to leave a bit of time before your ceremony to hide away and regroup after your first look or family formals. Leaving a little breathing room in between events throughout the day makes all the difference with staying relaxed and being able to live in the moment!
Life sure is a mystery sometimes, but thank God for the moments of clarity, where even the littlest of blessings is a glowing reminder of all we have to be thankful for! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I challenge you to take some time this week to acknowledge things you are grateful for. Be deliberate about it, even setting aside a few minutes a day to call to mind a thing or two of beauty in your life right now. Small acts of gratefulness can do wonders for the soul. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💛 thanks for yet another reminder @morganharpernichols
Getting all of my gear packed up for what is sure to be a beautiful wedding day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Saturday! 💐
Enjoyed a long weekend away with my crew, and feeling recharged and ready to take on the last 14 days before summer vacation officially begins! #bringonsummer !! 🙌🏼☀️
Happy Friday friends! I’m jumping on the #fridayintroduction bandwagon this morning to share a couple of my favorite things about weekends before we get on the road to enjoy a little weekend away with the fam! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ♡ Sleeping in a little on Saturdays, even though I have two high-energy human alarm clocks who get me up by 8 (hey, I’ll take it over the crazy hour I get up during the week!) ♡ Saturday soccer games with the littles ♡ When I’m not shooting a wedding, I always try to make time for things that bring me peace; extra devotional time, tending to my plant babies, creative projects, getting out out and exploring, or going for a long walk ♡ Sunday mornings at @citylightvineyard (where you might just find me behind the lens) ♡ Setting aside time each Sunday for a mini adventure with my boys, and weekly family dinner/game time ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are some of your favorite things to do on the weekend?
When the light and the location come together just as perfectly as these two will in September! 😍
Late night working on a pretty incredible engagement session! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💍💛
Warm days and sunny skies make me want to be out exploring! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who has big plans for a upcoming adventure— I would love to hear about it!
Engagement session tomorrow, and a wedding on Saturday! Tonight I’m prepping gear and dreaming of all the sweet moments and memories to be made! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #phillyweddingphotographer #mdwedding #mdphotographer #marylandwedding #marylandweddingphotographer #mdweddingphotographer #phillyengagementphotographer #phillyinlove #philadelphiaweddingphotographer #pennsylvaniawedding #paweddingphotographer #deweddingphotographer #deengagementphotographer #mccoyartwork #loveauthentic #weddinginspo #junebugweddings #liveinspired #stylemepretty #greenweddingshoes #oncewed #realwedding #aisleperfect #bridalinspo #tietheknot #elopementphotographer #destinationwedding #destinationweddingphotographer #destinationbride
