The Naval Academy is still one of our favorite spots for wedding photography in Annapolis. It is a classic space for gorgeous wedding photos and classic never gets old! The day was planned by Jan Wise, who owns Going to the Chapel and she nailed the couples vision. The wedding was stunning and classic…just what they wanted! We couldn’t be happier for them.
If we had to pick one word to describe Katelyn & Michael’s wonderful wedding, it would be romantic! The couple held their ceremony at the United States Naval Academy Chapel and the love emanating from them as they recited their vows was visible to all. As they held hands and looked into each other’s eyes, Katelyn just couldn’t stop smiling at her new husband. Later, the bride and groom would walk through the gardens of the William Paca House & Gardens and take their seats for the wedding reception – we asked Katelyn about that moment and she says that looking out into the gardens with her new husband sitting next to her and all of their closest family and friends around them was the most beautiful moment of her life!

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!
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.
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.
