The USNA traditions with the old Hollywood vibe had us drooling over all the photo ops for Caroline and Matt! Let’s start with the versatile yet stylish wedding dress! Its delicate and beautiful lace jacket was worn over the silk ball gown to emulate a Grace Kelly/Kate Middleton look. It was modern yet classic all in one! And then there was the beautiful antique car paired with the grand architecture of the Westin. It created a scene
Lise and John’s Naval Academy wedding was a little different than most – in part due to the amazing fog which created a dreamy atmosphere for their shoot. As if the USNA couldn’t be any more of a beautiful location, the soft light and the haze really upped the ante; the vibe was totally otherworldly in the best of ways. The creamy hues of the academy walls, Lise’s wedding dress and bouquet created a cohesive color palette which seemed to unify everything. One of our favorite things about Lise and John was their complete comfort around one another and the realness of their connection. While they look incredible during posed shots, the real magic was caught in the candid moments in-between. Congratulations to John and Lise!
As we nearing the end of 2016, we wanted to take time to step back and reflect on some of the truly incredible wedding moments we’ve captured over the year. Everything from beautiful bride and groom portraits, wedding day details and decor to magical ceremony and reception venues. Our journey has been amazing – indescribably so – and we’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of our couples for the opportunity to be part of your story!
We first met Christina and Daniel during their engagement session and it has been an absolute pleasure being there to capture their wedding journey from start to finish! They are truly one of the kindest, easygoing couples we’ve ever met! The wedding, held at the USNA and Silver Swan, was a dazzling event filled with so many sweet moments and impressive details. The only aspect of the day that didn’t shine was the sun, as it rained the majority of the day. However, Christina and Daniel kept their composure and fully embraced the day despite the oscillating rain showers. It couldn’t have been any more beautiful – rain and all!
An early spring wedding at the United States Naval Academy makes for some pretty beautiful wedding photos. They spent the day enjoying themselves and you could tell by their genuine happiness that they are surrounded by amazing family and friends. We wish them all the happiness in the world! Congratulations Bridget and Joel.
Here we are — already a full week into our 2016 journey and couldn’t be any more excited about what the year ahead has in store for us. 2015 was seriously amazing and we want to take some time to reflect back on what ended up being our best year ever for wedding photography. We had the opportunity to meet so many incredible couples, shoot in a diverse range of enchanting venues (from ballrooms to barns!) and do a lot of really unique things with our work which resulted in countless memorable moments. We are so grateful to have gotten the chance to form bonds and work with each of our couples + amazing vendors! Having them trust in our creative vision and allow us share and capture their most important memories and details is so special to us. Below we’ve selected a small sampling of some of our favorite wedding day moments of 2015. […]
Of all of the USNA weddings that we’ve photographed over the years, Yvonne and Jack’s has to be the cutest! It was a beautiful ceremony followed by an intimate gathering at the Severn Inn. Jack and Yvonne’s story is evidence that love never dies and you are never too old to fall in love.

The lines to this love song that John first played for Maggie couldn’t be any more appropriate in light of the tale to how they first met! We opened our 2015 wedding season in January with this lovely couple in what was a classic Annapolis naval wedding followed by an elegant reception at the Loews Hotel.
