These Harpers Ferry engagement photos were months in the making. Jordan and I texted back and forth about location, time, and outfits for months before we decided on the Maryland Heights Overlook at sunrise.Continue reading “Harpers Ferry Engagement Photos: Jordan and Conner”
Are you tired of seeing the name Ballenger Farm on my blog yet? I’m not! It is such a cute farm venue that can be transformed into anything magical. Someone even had a picnic wedding, and the photos looked like a scene out of a Jane Austen novel. But, enough gushing about Ballenger. On to the styled shoot and another great vendor: Blooming Arrow Events.Continue reading “Ballenger Farm Wedding, Hamilton Virginia: Fairytale Styled Shoot”
Norma and Breen love Halloween, so when they suggested wearing their Stranger Things costumes to their Harpers Ferry engagement photos session I was completely on board.Continue reading “Harpers Ferry Engagement Photos: Norma and Breen”
This very Harry Wedding styled shoot is brought to you by myself and Liz from Ballenger Farm. We had the idea of putting together a smaller shoot. Something everyone could attain. And, of course, we wanted it to be Harry Potter themed.Continue reading “A Very Harry Potter Wedding: Ballenger Farm, Hamilton Virginia”
“So, how did you two meet?”
“Well, it’s super redneck, but I asked her out over instagram.”
In case you didn’t know, it’s redneck to ask someone out over instagram. 😆 I guess I’m redneck too because I asked Charlie if she wanted to do an engagement session with me at Bears Den Overlook over instagram.
More couples in costume. That’s all I want in this world. Really. And, maybe, for the world to get it together.
I met Alyssa and Emely at a D.C. Cosplay Photo event back in March (pre-pandemic). They were dressed as anime characters. Forgive me, but I don’t remember the anime. BUT, point is I thought they were super cute. When I asked if they were a couple, they both looked at each other giggling and said, “yes!” I’m so glad they could join me in my adventure into taking renaissance couples portraits.
We took these photos on a summer evening in Harpers Ferry. As soon as they said they were going to be maidens, I pictured long hair tangled in grass and running through fields. So, off to the fields we went.Continue reading “Renaissance Couple Photoshoot, West Virginia: Alyssa and Emely”
Alyssa and Nick had plans for mountain views and waterfalls for their wedding in June, but then the pandemic happened. What I love most about these two is that they didn’t let that stop them. They still gathered all their best people around them and celebrated their love. Even though it wasn’t exactly what they wanted, it was still uniquely them. They worked hard on making their Hagerstown, Maryland backyard a beautiful space to hold a wedding ceremony.
When I first pulled up, guests were already gathering around the house and helping to get things in order. The atmosphere was one of love and celebration.
Sarah and Tyler met me at Baker Park in Frederick, Maryland on a beautiful summer evening in July. They were my first photoshoot back since the pandemic started, and I was really excited to start photographing couples again.
Baker Park packs a lot of punch in a small space as far as photos are concerned. You have the beautiful bell tower, the awesome stadium, the tunnels under the bridges, and everything was in bloom since it was the height of summer.
Sos, if you know anything about me or spent anytime on this blog, you know I love Legend of Zelda AND weddings.
If I was going to re-do my wedding, I’d probably add a touch of Zelda and an over top the flowy elven princess dress. But, alas, I had a normal basic bro wedding. So, I thought it would be fun to put together a Legend of Zelda wedding inspiration guide for couples looking to add a touch of Hyrule to their day. Since I didn’t and I can now live vicariously through you 🙂
Click, click, click. I was doing what we all do when we scroll through Netflix, looking at the images attached to the show to see if I wanted to *actually* watch any of them. When it comes to TV, I tend to judge a show by its cover.
Violet Evergarden stopped me mid-scroll, which is hard to accomplish. I was immediately drawn in by the wind-swept dress, letters, and artfully drawn light. I wasn’t really sure what I was getting into because I never read the synopsis. The story and the beautiful sun drenched scenes were totally bingeable.Continue reading “Violet Evergarden Cosplay Photoshoot”
Let’s talk Fandom Wedding Planning! I found out about Cristina, who runs Hermosa Weddings and Events, while scouring the internet for anything fandom related. I stumbled upon the Fandom Wedding Fair instagram page, which had a digital trail leading back to Cristina, a California and New York fandom wedding planner.Continue reading “How to have a Successful Fandom Wedding – From a Wedding Planner”
