I love photographing weddings where we have worked with the family before. For us it was Colby’s wedding a few years back. Colby just happens to be the sister of Courtney, the bride. Stay with me, the C names can throw you off. I think it says a ton about how much trust we build with clients when they ask us to come back to capture another of their daughter’s weddings. By the way, it is truly an honor to have been be part of two beautiful Foxwell weddings.
Courtney and Shannon were married at their friends beautiful property on the water in Cambridge, MD. This wedding caught us by surprise when Shannon, during the ceremony, asked Liza(Courtney’s 7 year old daughter) if he could be her step-dad. It was like a whole other proposal in the midst of a beautiful wedding ceremony. I am a sensitive person anyway and I simply lost it during that exchange. I’m glad, at times, that I can hide myself behind my camera. It was incredibly sweet and was one of the most humble things that I have ever seen a groom do. Way to go Shannon!! Oh…by the way, Liza said yes and off they all went to party the night away. These are just a few of the images that Amanda and I captured during their beautiful day. Enjoy the sneak peeks and we cannot wait to show you the whole story of your day at your preview party.
Thank you for trusting us with your story and your day. You and your families have been awesome and we count you as dear friends. Sincerely – James and Amanda
Courtney’s beautiful flowers and her stunning dress waiting for her to finish with her makeup.
Shannon getting ready and Courtney being helped into her dress by her sister Colby and Krista, one of her bride’s maids.
This was one of the sweetest ring bearers we have had the pleasure of meeting….look at those eyes, wow!
Courtney’s daughter, Liza as her junior brides maid. Courtney’s dad’s navigating the walk to the altar, and the cute flower girl showing proper flower tossing technique…through the handle of the basket.
Amanda captured Shannon catching his first glimpse of his beautiful bride as she was escorted by her dads at the start of the ceremony. I love this sequence and the range of emotions.
Liza…will you allow me to be your step-dad? YESSSSSS! Now where did I put that tissue?
Yeah! we are married…let’s celebrate!
A couple of shots of the bride and groom. Courtney was absolutely stunning in her gown. Shannon…you’re not so bad yourself!
Hanging out with the girls.

Like I said before…stunning. Amanda captured the image on the left using a little whisp of Courtney’s veil….love it!
Good looking and fun bridal party!
First dances…yes, there is a tear rolling down Courtney’s cheek.
