Last month, I had the pleasure of traveling to the Florida Keys to photograph a whole weekend of birthday fun for Dana + Scott. Since they share a birth date and had reached a milestone birthday, they decided to celebrate with their friends and family on Little Palm Island, a private, 5 1/2-acre oasis in the Atlantic Ocean with thatched-roof bungalows on … See More

Tucked into all the weddings and engagement sessions this spring, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing a couple of milestone birthday celebrations. (As one client told me of the importance of her 75th — an occasion for which all she wanted was great photos with her husband, children and grandchildren, “You can get married more than once.

The Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall — Weddings and Events Venue — Baltimore wedding photography


I recently had the pleasure of photographing an event at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall for the Baltimore chapter of NACE. Anyone who has attended a concert or show at the Meyerhoff knows about the venue’s extraordinary acoustics and sight lines for performances. But it turns out that it’s also a fabulous spot for a wedding or other special event. Just imagine your walk down the aisle to the stage during … See More

Kate Beck Events

My friend and event planner extraordinaire Kate Beck recently hosted a bridal happy hour in her new Ruxton office. Stylist Stephanie Bradshaw, who designed and decorated Kate’s new space and served as the featured vendor for the evening, shared some fun stories and tips. I had the pleasure of shooting a few photos for them.
There was a jazzy trio from Elan Artists. Gorgeous flowers by Amy Epstein of Crimson and Clover. Dresses from Garnish. Jewelry from Stella & Dot. Fun … See More

Crimson & Clover jewelry party!

I recently had the pleasure of photographing a jewelry party at the shop of floral designer extraordinaire Amy Epstein. Owner of Crimson & Clover Floral Design, she recently packed up her Canton location and moved to a much bigger spot in Roland Park. Amy and I have worked a couple of weddings together, most notably the peacock-themed nuptials of Lynn and Benoit. She and her team created some fabulous floral centerpieces for that November wedding as well as stunning arrangements … See More

Play ball!

As a weddings and portraits photographer, I don’t have an opportunity all that often to photograph sports. This comes much to the chagrin of my husband, who is a sports reporter for The Baltimore Sun and likes to pester me about why I never want to photograph what he’s interested in. I always figured that I would refine my sports shooting techniques when our future children take up lacrosse or soccer or football. But until then, I told him, he’ll … See More

Busy, busy, busy…

I have been a very bad blogger, lately — but a very busy photographer!
In the last six days, I have shot some silly photos with my husband during a quick week-day trip to Ocean City, two fabulous weddings, a darling 8-week-old baby boy and his parents, and a super fun baseball game under the broiling hot, ultra-humid sun between teams of boys from Baltimore and its sister city of Kawasaki, Japan. Whew! I literally have calluses forming on the thumb … See More
