Helen recently told me that she thought she and Jeff were incredibly awkward in front of the camera. If you gave me 1,000,000 adjectives to describe this couple, “awkward” would still be nowhere on the list. As I reformatted memory cards and printed schedules for their wedding today, I couldn’t resist looking back at and sharing a few favorite … See More

001-jennifer-mcmenamin-photography-baltimore-engagement-photos_0000It rained cats and dogs *during* Emily + Lou’s engagement session.

Baltimore engagement photos: Jessica + Josh

001-jennifer-mcmenamin-photography-baltimore-engagement-photos_0009Jessica decided that she wanted a puppy — the world’s cutest, fluffiest, most darling labradoodle, to be specific — instead of an engagement ring. So it was only fitting that she and Josh included Finley in their engagement photos. As I pack up gear and print schedules for their Peabody Library wedding today, I couldn’t resist looking back at … See More

01-Jennifer-McMenamin-Photography-DC-engagement-photosWith humidity levels routinely at their traditionally oppressive summer levels, it was a delight to look back at and remember the lovely brisk fall day last year when I met Kara + Jason in DC for their engagement session. Because Jason grew up in Florida where there is no fall foliage, he and Kara wanted to take advantage of … See More

001-KnippLingle_0323-0090_Jennifer-McMenamin-Photography-Baltimore-engagement-photosKaty + Mike wanted to shoot their engagement photos in the beautiful Baltimore County church in which she grew up. It’s where they would have chosen to exchange their vows if the Glyndon United Methodist Church wasn’t so far from the Four Seasons Hotel in Baltimore, where their reception will be held today. As I get ready for their … See More
