Tiffani & Matt | Chesapeake Bay Wedding at The Oaks Waterfront Inn

Working with clients like Matt & Tiffani reminds me why I love telling wedding stories.  The professional relationship was easy, they were fun to talk to, they loved great photography, and they welcomed me into their family.  Tiffani’s family treated me like I was their friend who had lived a few houses down on their street.  This started when I first met Tiffani and her family when I was photographing her sister’s wedding about 5 years ago.  I went on to photograph one of her sister’s friend’s wedding a few years later. This is what is so fun about my job. I am invited into a couple’s life for a season to capture one of the most important days of their life.  I get to tell the story they will experience for the rest of their lives. Oh yeah, and somewhere along the way I make new friends. Alas, here are some of my favorites from Matt & Tiffani’s Chesapeake Bay wedding.

The future of wedding storytelling.

As a visual storyteller I want you to feel connected to every story that I tell, just as if you were there. I’ve been thinking about how to better do this for my wedding clients and I was reminded of what a friend of mine, who is a Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist, said “I don’t care how I reach you, only that I do.” This means embracing new tools beyond the still photograph and look at what is on the leading edge of storytelling for photojournalists. This means motion, sound, and most importantly this means story. So I’ve combined the poignancy of the still image and the intimacy of video to tell Jeremy and Meghan’s wedding story. I see this as the future for all who consider themselves a wedding storyteller. I’m ready for the future and I’m loving it.

John & Trang’s Wedding Pictures part III – The bride & groom

Part I of John & Trang’s wedding photographs focussed on the bride. Part II centered on the groom, and now without further adu I give you the final installment–the bride and groom together celebrating their marriage. Their wedding was celebrated at the Hyatt Regency on the Chesapeake bay in Cambridge, Maryland. It was a beautiful day! Enjoy!

John & Trang’s Wedding Celebration part I

Some weddings are just plain fun–through and through. This was the case with Trang & Johnny’s wedding late this summer. The great time we had during their early morning engagement session should have been a hint for me. There are countless factors that make wedding celebrations fun. Instead of trying to list them all out I’m just going to try and show that in some of the pictures of Trang and the ladies. Johnny and the men are next.

Trang and her sisters–the epitome of fun!

One of my favorite bouquet toss photos of all time.

TJ & Heather: Part 3

Heather (the bride) sent me such a sweet note last night to remind me how much she is enjoying her wedding photographs. She gave me permission to share a little of it with all of you. Enjoy!

“I can’t tell you how happy we are both with all the pictures. You will also be happy to know my Dad is also a big fan!! We are so blessed to not only have you as a friend, but you got to share in one of the most precious moments in our lives…and you saw it from both sides. We will be forever thankful for you capturing the day so perfectly. When I saw part two a bit ago I couldn’t believe it. I have seen these pictures multiple times and never put all of them together! People have told me by looking at the pictures they felt as though they were there (I tried to convince them of the heat factor as well but really didn’t work well!)”


I’m so glad you’re being richly blessed by my pictures! Yes, it was so hot that day. I would venture to say it was even “India hot” as one of my professors from photography school would say (India during August is the hottest place I’ve ever been in the world.) Here is the last group of my personal favorites from your wedding. I hope everyone else enjoys them half as much as I enjoyed telling your wedding story.

TJ & Heather: Part 2

I had the luxury of spending twelve hours with TJ and Heather on their wedding day. This gave me some time for some unique photographs that I know will add an awesome creative element to their wedding album. The first six photographs were before the wedding and before they had seen each other. So they were shot at different times so it took some pre-visualization to make sure I got it all to line up.

TJ & Heather: Part 1

Enough stories about politics and hurricanes! Lets get back on track with the wedding stories. What better way to jump back into wedding storytelling than with TJ and Heather’s awesome wedding held at the breathtakingly beautiful Veritas Vineyards nestled at the feet of the Shenandoah mountains near Charlottesville, Va. This wedding was so beautiful for many reasons. Too many to mention in words, so I’ll let some photographs from their wedding story speak into the beauty of this day. Stay tuned! I have two more follow-up posts of TJ and Heather to come!
