Pinchot State Park was looking beautiful at sunset. The lake glistened like a dream as the wispy clouds diffused the sun overhead. The trees were just starting to put forth the first buds of spring, and the air smelled so fresh. We arrived well-rested and eager to shoot Emily and Brock’s engagement session. In deciding […]

Emily and Brock

Champagne bubbled in tall glasses. Family and friends turned their attention first to the matron of honor, then to the best man, then to members of the bride and groom’s family. The room was silent so as to not miss a word from speech givers. The best man and matron of honor often know the […]

Mr. and Mrs. Morie

Lights and candles sparkled throughout the barn. A colorful sunset illuminated the sky beyond the mountains. Friends and family selected their own seats in the beautiful and comfortable space. The evening was filled with so much joy.  Fr. Diego stood with a microphone in one hand and a gift in the other. As he shared […]

Mr. and Mrs. Coli

The church was filled with friends and joy. Abby and Christian sat perpendicular to the congregation, and their love and excitement for each other and marriage was evident. Father Petri’s voice filled the room as he reflected on the most basic and fundamental truths of our faith, and of marriage. Like the first paragraph of […]

Mr. and Mrs. Obuchowski

Amy headed to the hotel lobby with Claire and her bridesmaids. The limo to the church had arrived. Everyone climbed on board. It wouldn’t be long now. Patrick was already at the church waiting for the start of their nuptial Mass. Kyle was there with him. Amy sat with Claire’s mom, Victoria, and as they […]

Mr. and Mrs. Moran

As we parked at the church parking lot, we looked for Abby and Christian’s car. Just then they pulled in and parked next to us. This wasn’t a typical location for us to first meet our clients. We were at the church where they will be married and celebrate at their reception in October. After […]

Abby & Christian

Our relationship with Hayley and Chris is unique compared to most of our other couples. For one, we knew them before they became clients, and two, they live here in Emmitsburg with us. These two things have allowed us more time than usual to get to know them and the story of their relationship before […]

Hayley & Chris’s Engagement Session

DC is a quiet city at 6 in the morning. At the start of Claire and Patrick’s engagement session, the pink morning sky stretched widely across the historical buildings and monuments. A few zealous souls climbed up and down the stairs of the Jefferson Memorial, getting in that daily cardio, but for the most part, […]

Claire & Patrick

Libby took a seat on a chair in the middle of the dance floor. Stephen stood ten paces across the room. His eyes locked on his new bride. Men from his Catholic fraternity huddled behind him. Libby’s eyes shone with the brightest twinkle as she looked from her husband to his friends. The room was […]

Mr. & Mrs. Racz

The excitement and joy from the nuptial Mass still clung to the air. We hid from the hot sun with Roxio and Alexis on the side of the church. The small strip of shade provided great relief and a moment’s rest. Alexis held in his hands a box. It was a long rectangular box, and […]
