Jakob and Megan – Winter Engagement

 

 

The first day of winter was extremely cold, but we still had fun heading out to Tyaskin to squeeze in some engagement portraits just before the holidays. Spending time with a fantastic couple like Jake and Megan is our favorite way to close out 2014! Enjoy this peek into the fun we had, and we look forward to capturing their big day in June of this year!

Lauren + Kenny – a Chickberry Farms Wedding 2014

Years ago I had photographed the wedding of Zach and Melinda, who’s family owns the property where the lovely, rustic, country wedding of Kenny and Lauren took place.  They had another venue booked, but the original place fell through so they ended up getting to have their wedding at Chickberry Farms in DE.

It was a great combination of amazing people, relaxed atmosphere, and some wonderful surprises that lead to a beautiful and fun wedding day.  Tiffany and I were excited to share in the day with them and to capture many special moments for these wonderful clients.

Lauren and Kenny – thank you for your trust in us and for allowing us the opportunity to be with you on this most important day of your lives.  It was a wonderful day and we loved every minute of it.  We enjoyed meeting your friends and family and the flash mob dance at your reception.  We are so happy for your new lives together and your new family.  Congrats and we hope that your marriage will be a wonderful journey.  Enjoy the sneak peeks!   We hope that they remind you of your amazing day.

Sincerely-James and Tiffany

Garrett + Emily – Salisbury, MD wedding

I am particularly close to this wedding, having known Emily since we were both young. I was more than thrilled when she and Garrett came to us to do their wedding! It’s been wonderful seeing their love grow and working with them leading up to this day.  It was like springtime in the middle of October. As Emily walked the aisle on her father’s arm, she kept the happiest grin.  Garret whispered to her “you’re gorgeous” and my heart nearly melted. The ceremony was held at Asbury United Methodist church in Salisbury, and the reception at The Fountains.

Emily and Garrett, we want to thank you! Thank you for putting your trust in James and me to document this amazing time in your lives. What an honor it was to be a part of the celebration! Love you both and wish you many many of the happiest times!

-Amanda & James

Erin + Logan – Laurel, DE 2014 Wedding

The October weddings continue to roll on for us, but this one was our first October wedding of this year.  Let me just say it’s not a real wedding till the police show up.  Well, they were already there actually.  Logan being an officer, along with several of the guests and groomsmen.  The Laurel police did, however, show up and kindly let us use a cruiser for a quick photo with the girls before the ceremony.  Logan and Erin were married in the Methodist church in downtown Laurel and then partied with friends and family at the Laurel Fire Hall.

It was a beautiful October day and such a wonderful gathering of friends and family.  The Karaoke machine was running hot all night at the reception, which is fitting, since they met at a Karaoke night.  Logan took the mike and wowed the crowd with “Don’t Stop Believing”…what a great addition to the fun of the evening.  And it was one of the best cake smashes ever(way to go Erin).

Congrats to Erin and Logan!  We wish you many many many years of happiness in your new life together.  Thanks for letting us be a part of it and for the honor of capturing your story and the moments of your wedding day.  Enjoy the sneak peeks!  – James and Amanda

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!

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!

Mary Beth + Evan – Ocean View Wedding August 2014

Some days simply don’t feel like work when you get to spend time with an amazing couple, their family and friends, and do what you absolutely love.  Amanda and I had the privilege of capturing one of the best weddings of our year.  We loved it because Evan and Mary Beth were a joy to work with.  They let us exercise our creative muscles and trusted us to capture the many moments that made their day beautiful and timeless.  We also loved it because their story is a deep one, already full of greatness.  We can’t wait to see what is in store for them now that they have become husband and wife.

Mary Beth got ready at her Father-in-law’s house in Ocean View(which is also where the reception took place).  After getting ready and capturing the bridal party together we headed to the beach in Bethany.  A lovely ceremony, some pictures at the beach, then we headed back to Ocean View for an incredibly fun reception.  Eric, from That DJ Guy, was at the helm for the rest of the evening and created an atmosphere where everyone could enjoy themselves.  We were greeted by an absolutely gorgeous sunset as the evening descended, which we couldn’t pass up that opportunity for photos on the pier.  Congrats to Mary Beth and Evan.  We pray you will enjoy many years as husband and wife.  We are so thankful for having been part of your day and for trusting us to capture your wedding story for you and your family.  Enjoy these few sneak peeks, we look forward to sharing all of your images with you soon!
