Derek’s sneak peeks – Senior Portrait Photographer, Salisbury MD

I got to spend the afternoon with Derek last week to capture his senior portraits.  I had the privilege of meeting the Scott family a few years back when his sister Carley was a model rep for my studio.  I love it when I get to photograph another sibling and continue to capture these special times in a family’s life.  Thanks for choosing me to create Derek’s portraits.  It was fun being with you.  I hope you have a great senior year and best of luck on the lax field this spring!!  Enjoy the sneak peeks.

Rachel’s Sneak Peeks – Salisbury Senior Portrait Photographer

Meet Rachel!  I had the joy of getting to meet her last week and capture her senior portraits.  We met up at the studio where we did a few with the hat she had with her, then headed to the pond in Allen, then out to the Cove for some pictures at the beach.  It turned out to be a beautiful night.  She was such a fun girl to hang out with and I love what we captured during her session.  One of my favorites from her portraits is the black and white a the end of this post, great look and I love the giggling one.  I wish you the best Rachel, as you go through your senior year.  Enjoy the sneak peeks!

Kristen + Corey – Baywood Greens Wedding

Amanda and I had the privilege of being with the Givens family once again for the wedding of their second son to his beautiful bride Kristen.  Kristen has been a guest at several of the weddings that we had photographed in the past and we were delighted when she chose us to capture their wedding day.  Everything took place at Baywood Greens in Delaware.  Talk about a beautiful spot to tie the knot and celebrate; Baywood is top notch and is certainly one the most beautiful venues around(they have the most amazing flowers around).  Plus the staff and event coordinators take great care of you and your bridal party throughout the day.

They were married in a simple ceremony outside underneath clear skies.  We spent some time capturing photos with the bridal party and family and then got the chance to photograph with Pop pop Given’s 1946 Ford.  Such a cool addition to the day and certainly fun to grab some pictures around such a meaningful automobile.  The entire day was punctuated with fun, beauty, good friends, and lots of laughter.  We loved catching the many moments that made up their amazing wedding day.  It was difficult to narrow down to just these few sneak peeks.  Enjoy them…..lots more to be seen at their preview party.  Congrats Kristen and Corey!  Thanks for trusting us to capture your day and the joy of being with your families once again!

James and Amanda

Jenna + Tony – Princess Anne Wedding

Amanda and I had the privilege of capturing Jenna and Tony’s wedding recently.  They were married in the First Baptist Church in Princess Anne in front of their friends and family.  After the ceremony and family portraits we headed down to the river in Pocomoke for some quick pictures at the dock and marina.  We then headed to the Pocomoke fire hall for their reception.  It was a beautiful day filled with great moments.  Congrats to Tony and Jenna on their lovely wedding day.  Enjoy the sneak peeks!

One of the coolest cakes I have seen. The dog on the right is actually a cake created by Miss Patty Cakes from Snow Hill. At first look I though it was Jenna and Tony’s dog on the cake table. Amazing!

Molly’s sneak peeks – Berlin, MD senior portrait photographer

I had the great pleasure of meeting Molly to create her senior portraits recently.  She is a senior in the Class of 2015 at Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin, MD.  She also swims and absolutely loves the beach.  For a portrait in the studio she brought one of the coolest bathing suits I’ve ever seen….the Maryland flag.  I even made a flower head band for her portraits in the studio.  Thanks to the City Florist for providing the flowers.

We spent time down at Assateague where she worked this summer and where she spends a lot of time at the beach.  I can’t blame her, it is an absolutely beautiful place.  We even popped over to the Sunset Grille for a small early morning session to catch the sunrise.  Enjoy these few sneak peeks and have a great senior year!!

Kendall’s sneak peeks – Berlin, MD senior portrait photographer

Meet Kendall!  She came all the way from Cumberland (3hr drive) for her senior portraits here at the beach.  We started in the studio then, headed the coolest small town in America, Berlin, MD for a quick stop and some portraits.  Then we hit the beach at Assateage to finish up her session.  We stepped onto the beach and the wind was howling!!  We managed to get a few in between the moments of rain and the steady gusting wind…less than ideal day at the beach.  She was fantastic through it all and I really enjoyed getting to meet her and capture her portraits.  Enjoy the sneak peeks.

Danielle’s senior portrait – sneak peeks- Salisbury, MD senior portrait photographer

This young lady was so much fun to hang out with the other night while we captured her senior portraits.  From her boyfriends classic car, the antique shotgun handed down to her by her grandfather, to her natural beauty, this was a fantastic session all around.  I got to photograph in some different out of the way places for this one and I am excited to share a few sneak peeks of what we were able to capture during her session.  Enjoy!
