The Oaks Wedding | Eastern Shore Wedding | Maryland Weddings |Elisabeth + Sam

 

“Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday….

This is the quote that Elisabeth + Sam had up at their wedding – their amazing wedding that took place at The Oaks in Royal Oak, MD. They definitely made humor a big part of their day and if you know where this quote came from – then you know humor. It came from the movie The Princess Bride, obviously one of their favorites and one of mine as well!  I shoot at The Oaks 2 – 3 times a year and love it there so much! Every wedding is so uniquely different and when you shoot at the same location for different weddings – it really is amazing how the details and personalities of the couple come across in the pictures and make it special. This wedding had such amazing details and Elisabeth + Sam were such a pleasure to shoot. I was so excited that there were still leaves on the big trees out in front of the Oaks where we did most of their pictures. We set up a photobooth there as well and their friends and families had a blast!

Engagement Session | Virginia Weddings | Kayla + Ryan

Kayla + Ryan met me down in Old Town Clifton, VA on a July evening to do their engagement session.  I hadn’t been down there for a few years – and I fell in love with this funky little area all over again. There isn’t much there – just a few shops and restaurants and lots of charm. Everywhere I turned we found great spots.  I can’t wait to shoot their amazing wedding next June at Congressional Country Club. Here are more than a few of my favorite shots!

Family Portraits ~ Katie + Joel

Katie + Joel and their two beautiful children have been friends though playgroups with my son for about 4 years, then they moved recently – right accross the street which has been so amazing! They asked me to do some family portraits for them and Katie’s parents as well as her sister and her daughter, so we went over to foxhill park in Bowie. We got to see tons of canadian geese (along with lots of poop!)  – plus two families of parents with chicks walking around.  It was a beautiful spot to get some amazing candid shots of the whole family. I love how fun and natural they turned out!

Baby Matteo ~

Aida + Matt were married in 2011 – they had such a beautiful wedding! I felt so lucky to be able to be a part of their wedding day and now they recently welcomed their first son – Matteo.  What a little cutie! He weighed just 4 lbs 60z when he was born – just a tiny lttle dude – but very healthy! I was so happy that they asked me to come by and get some shots of him this small. They grow up so fast!

The Oaks Wedding Photography | Maryland Wedding Photography | Julie + Adam

“Together is a wonderful place to be” – was the quote that Julie + Adam displayed on a vintage chalkboard on their wedding day. It was the day before hurricane Sandy hit, all was still and the light was incredible – the kind of light every photographer hopes for. Just bright enough with a cloud blanket filtering the sun, to let through a soft enveloping glow that wraps your subjects so perfectly… Both Missy and I arrived at the Oaks – one of our favorite venues – and it was like coming home, because everyone at the Oaks is so, so nice. It is a wonderful place for a wedding – very peaceful and intimate. I always love going there – it reminds me of an old New England House – with lots of nooks and crannies to get lost in. Julie’s Family actually owns a samll house in St. Michael’s MD, so they are very familiar with the area.

Julie + Adam had a first look at the corner of the famous Red Barn on The Oaks property – then we did all the pictures of family and bridal party right there. They had their ceremony on the lawn, along with the cocktail hour – then went inside for dinner and dancing. I was in love with Julie’s bouquets that she purchased on Etsy – hand made flowers that had such amazing texture and detail. They were very unique and personal, and fit perfectly with the vintage feel of the day. They ended the night with an exit through sparklers out in front of The Oaks. Congrats you two – thanks for allowing both Missy and I to document your day!
