Engagement Shoot Downtown Frederick Tarek & Elizabeth

Tarek and Elizabeth are the second couple I’ve photographed who attended the small(ish) Walkersville High School but didn’t actually meet until years later!

Springfield Manor Winery & Distillery Wedding

If ever a wedding day could be considered, “perfect” it was Adam and Danielle’s Springfield Manor Winery & Distillery wedding.  Despite the fact that most of July has been downright miserable their day was beautiful; sunny, low 80s, with a gentle breeze. Danielle chose a lavender and teal color scheme and their decor was simple but
