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! They were introduced through mutual friends and connected over the fact that they both grew up in the same small town. The rest, as they say, is history. For their engagement shoot in […]

Get excited cuz this Linganore Winecellars engagement shoot features Sammy Stakem who in my unbiased opinion is one of the coolest people ever and has also been one of my best friends since 4th grade. If you need proof, below you will find a picture from my 4th grade birthday party in which I (the […]

After four reschedules and an engagement shoot that got cut in half due to the rain, I was starting to think that Jess and David were straight up cursed when it came to the weather.  Thankfully, our sixth try brought us a beautiful summer evening and I’m hopeful their luck holds out for their Lodges at […]

I tell Rebecca all the time that she is super lucky to have a wedding photographer for a sister.  While she readily agrees, at times I wonder if Gunnar does! Rebecca was my first model for my first senior shoot and was so talented at posing herself that she tricked me into thinking this whole […]

April shower bring May flowers and beautiful engagement shoots. When the weather started forecasting rain, rather than getting upset Phil and Laura Beth decided to embrace the rain in hopes to get more unique photos. They ended up getting the best of both worlds; as their shoot started out with a light drizzle only to […]

Maryland Winter Engagement Shoot

I love getting to photograph at new venues, so I was very excited when Ashley requested we do her and Chris’s engagement shoot at her father’s farm.  However, I had no idea just how gorgeous their farm would be!  As soon as Brent and I arrived we knew this was going to be a fantastic […]

I couldn’t have asked for a prettier day for Crystal and Ryan’s engagement shoot.  The sun was shining and the temperature was perfect.  Crystal and Ryan are such a cute couple and Crystal was all beautiful smiles.  Even though they were a little nervous at first – which is perfectly natural – after a few minutes […]

 I couldn’t have asked for better weather or a nicer couple for my first engagement shoot of the year.  Lori and Joe are so sweet and are a beautiful couple.  You would never guess that between the two of them they have eight children!  We had a lot of fun laughing and joking around while […]

Jake and Jackie wanted fall colors for their engagement shoot, but the weather seemed to have other ideas. After having to reschedule once with our rain date also predicting rain, we ended up switching dates again to an early Sunday morning.  After winding up in different parking lots, we finally found each other and hurried […]
