Heather + Mike – Ocean City, MD Wedding – April 2014

Mike and Heather were married in a small country church in Willards on a warm April day.  I long for that day to return as I was scrapping ice off of my windshield this morning.  Brrr…  They had a beautiful wedding.  From getting ready at one of the bridesmaid’s house, to the delightful ceremony at the Willards Methodist Church, to the rousing reception, it was all around a wonderful and picture perfect day.  Mike and Heather had carved out a large chunk of time for their photos.  So, we took advantage of that and did pictures at the church, at the jetty in Ocean City, and on a piece of private property in Willards that held special meaning for them.  The flowers by Kitty’s Flowers were amazing as usual and the Cake by Cake Art was beautiful.

Mike and Heather,

Amanda and I wish you the best as your begin your marriage and pray for a long and wonderful journey together.  Thank you for trusting us to capture your beautiful day.  It was an honor to be with you and share in it.  Enjoy the sneak peeks!  Sincerely -James and Amanda

Megan – Senior Portraits – Salisbury, MD senior portrait photographer

Meet Megan.  She is a senior in the Class of 2014 at The Salisbury School….go Dragons.  We got to spend an afternoon together this fall capturing her senior portraits.  It was so much fun taking these, trekking out into the middle of a field with a vintage chair I found for $5 at a local yard sale, stopping by a cool barn I know of in town, and just getting to hang out with her an her friend Alyssa was fantastic.  We are booking senior portrait sessions now for the Class of 2015 and we can still do portraits for the Class of 2014 if you haven’t had yours taken yet.  Enjoy these photos from Megan’s session and give us a call to book your portraits.

Mark and Kristina’s Engagement Portraits – {sneak peeks} – Salisbury, MD wedding photographer

Amanda and I met up with Mark and Kristina in downtown Salisbury a few days ago to capture their engagement portraits.  We have the honor of capturing their wedding day at UMES in July.  They are having a Harlem Renaissance themed wedding.  We can’t wait for their big day to arrive; getting to be part of it and capturing what will be an amazing day we can’t quite contain our excitement!

In the meantime, here are a few sneak peeks from the other night downtown.  We were photobombed by Sherman from the minor league baseball team during their session, it turned out to be Third Friday a big draw for downtown, but it was a gorgeous night and this couple was amazing and such a blast to be with.  Enjoy the sneak peeks.

Sarah – Senior Model Rep. Class of 2015 – Senior Portraits, Salisbury MD

I have the great pleasure of working with this beautiful Senior Model Rep. in the Class of 2015.  We spent a little time in the studio last week and then headed over to SU for some portraits outside.  Sarah is so much fun to be around and has been a joy to work with so far.

I am currently booking senior portrait sessions for the Class of 2015 already.  We only do a limited number of sessions a year, so don’t miss out on amazing portraits and a great experience having them done.  Ask Sarah how she has enjoyed being a model rep and about her experience with our studio so far.  It’s amazing!

Enjoy a few of Sarah’s sneak peeks.

Zoë – Senior Model Rep. Class of 2014 – Berlin, MD Senior Portraits

Zoë has been one of my amazing Model Reps. for my studio this year from the Class of 2014 at PHS.  We have had the chance to photograph her a lot during her senior year and a few days ago we made the last installment of her portrait images.  We met up in downtown Berlin, MD(voted best small town in America), to capture a few stylized portraits.  She brought some awesome outfits that she had found while on a shopping trip to NY City and the Atlantic Hotel was the perfect backdrop to finish up her portraits.  She fit right in to the 20′s era and Mom was a tremendous help.  Enjoy just a few of the sneak peeks from her 20′s themed session last week.

We are currently beginning to book senior portrait sessions for the Class of 2015 already.  I only do a limited number of sessions, so if you want to have amazing portraits, and a great experience while having them taken, contact me to set up your session.

Chelsea + Justin – Rockhall MD, Wedding – March 2014

Amanda and I absolutely ADORE our wedding clients.  We had been looking forward to Chelsea and Justin’s big day ever since they booked us and gave us the honor of capturing their wedding.  After lots of anticipation the day finally arrived and it was wonderful, beautiful, and packed with emotion and laughter.

They were married in a small Methodist church in Rock City, MD(as the locals call it), followed by a fun-filled reception at the Rock Hall Fire Hall Banquet facility.  Chelsea looked absolutely stunning in her beautiful gown.  We had a lovely spring day and the bridal party couldn’t have been more fun to work with.  Amanda and I wish you the best and we can’t wait for you to see all of the images we captured of your day.  Congrats!

Enjoy the sneak peeks!

Lauren + Moshe – Millsboro DE wedding photographer

Wedding season has started!  Last weekend was Lauren and Moshe’s wedding in Millsboro, DE.  We were super excited to photograph and capture their story for a number of reasons.  We knew it would be a special day; the foot washing they did during the ceremony, the fun we had with the bridal party, and getting to spend an amazing day with such a wonderful family made it an incredible experience for us! We loved the many special moments and the simple beauty of their day.

Amanda and I were honored to capture your story and we’re proud to share a few of your images on our blog.  We look forward to reliving your day with you when we meet you for your preview party in a few weeks!  Enjoy your honeymoon and we will see you soon!

 - James and Amanda

One of the most tender moments of the whole day. Lauren and Moshe washed each others feet as a symbol of their selfless love and commitment to one another.

Forget walking down the aisle after you are married...just pick her up and head for the door!

The beautiful bridal party.
