It took months of planning  around crazy work schedules, but we finally found a day that worked for Alex & Marissa’s Patapsco State Park Engagement shoot. With their wedding only two weeks away, it was a nice chance for them to take a breath together and focus on their relationship. I had never been to […]

I started brainstorming, researching gardens, ruins, etc. and finally heard about Brookside Gardens. When I mentioned the possibility of a Brookside Gardens engagement shoot to Sammi it turned out that her […]

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 […]

Several months ago I posted the pictures from the awesome secret shoot of Frankie’s proposal to Kendra in downtown Frederick.  When we met to discuss their engagement session, Frankie and Kendra wanted to do something a little different that showcased their relationship and personalities.
