Brooke + Matt {sneak peeks} 8-31-2013 Berlin, MD wedding photographer

Brooke and Matt are just about the cutest couple that I have had the pleasure of photographing this year.  Bubbly Brooke, easy-going Matt, just plain fun and down to earth.  It was such a pleasure to capture their beautiful wedding day and be a part of this special moment in their lives.  They were recently married on the grounds of Lighthouse Sound  near Ocean City, MD.  Then they partied the night away with That DJ Guy providing the music and a rousing reception.  So many things came together for their special day that made it perfect, I feel I need to mention a few.  Ethan, from Event’s by Ethan, was their wedding planner and the reason everything ran so smoothly.  That DJ guy – Justin Darling, rocked the reception with fabulous lighting to great music that got people up dancing and made for a wonderful party.  The gourmet cupcakes were made by Cake Art; they were beautiful AND delicious.  Trisha and the other stylists at Accents Salon did a wonderful job with hair and makeup.  And I got to photograph all of that.  Enjoy the sneak peeks!

Brooke and Matt,

What a privilege to get to know you and to capture your wedding day.  It was an amazing day and I hope it was everything you had planned and hoped it would be.  Enjoy the sneak peeks and I am looking forward to your preview party in a few weeks.  Thanks for trusting me with you day.

Sincerely-James

I do...what an amazing location to exchange wedding vows. Lighthouse Sound is gorgeous around sunset.

Justin Darling aka That DJ Guy added the perfect ambiance to the reception. Uplighting, dancing on the clouds during Brooke and Matt's first dance, and projection near the cake. It was amazing how the room was transformed.
One last parting shot for the night.

Allison {sneak peeks} Senior Portraits, Salisbury MD senior portrait photographer

Take a beautiful and outgoing young lady and put her in the middle of a field of wildflowers and you get something magical.  I had the pleasure of meeting Allison the other day for her senior portraits.  Allison goes to Holly Grove and is in the Class of 2014.  She is a sweet young lady, talented actress, and natural beauty.  We spent the afternoon capturing images in my studio, then a local field filled with clover(what a beautiful aroma), then we headed to Belin, MD for some around an abandoned building.  We captured some cool portraits.

Allison-Thanks for having me capture these.  It was a pleasure meeting you and getting to know you a bit while we did this portraits.  I hope you have a great senior year.  Enjoy the sneak peeks.

Emily {sneak peeks} Senior Portraits, Salisbury Senior Portrait Photographer

You’ve already met Emily here on the blog.  She is another one of my b.e.a.utiful high school senior portrait model reps for the Class of 2014.  We met up last evening to capture a few images in the flowered fields around Salisbury.  Then we headed to the Atlantic Hotel in Berlin to do a few portraits with a different flavor than your normal senior portraits.  A few weeks back we took a few minutes to photograph over at SU to catch the tulips in bloom.  I’ve included a few from that session as well.

She will be singing at Open Mic Night next Friday night…come on out to hear her, she rocks.

Jamie and Ray’s Wedding {Sneak Peeks} Ocean City, MD Wedding Photographer May 5th, 2013

I would like you to meet an adorable couple that recently tied the knot.  Except for the 30mph winds and coolness of the afternoon, it was a beautiful May day.  Still, we had a wonderful time and it truly was a beautiful day.  They were married on the beach surrounded by their friends and family.  After the ceremony and pictures they partied the night away on the 22nd floor of the Golden Sands Club.

Vendors who helped make the day spectacular:

Congrats Jamie and Ray.  I had been looking forward to sharing in your wedding day for a long time.  Thanks for trusting me with capturing the moments and story of your day.  I loved every minute of it(except those agonizing minutes you were stuck in the elevator before the ceremony).  I wish you the best in your journey as husband and wife.  Enjoy the sneak peeks!
