Most of us have a list of things we’d like to do or change about ourselves before getting married. Sometimes there really are issues that need to be worked through, but more often than not, we are simply operating with expectations that are too high of ourselves and others pertaining to marriage. Some people end […]

Nestled in the quiet hills of Ellicott City, the Shrine of Saint Anthony is a perfect place for peaceful prayer. We enjoyed plenty of time there when we were dating and newly married, but after moving away we forgot something of its beauty. The silence wraps around you and invites you to see and enjoy […]

Pinchot State Park was looking beautiful at sunset. The lake glistened like a dream as the wispy clouds diffused the sun overhead.

The sun sent out its golden rays to cover every last blade of grass covering the rolling hills. Everything felt quite magical. Libby and Stephen had left their […]

At the start of Ann and Alex’s engagement session, Amy was dealing with a wardrobe malfunction: a stubborn button would simply not do its singular job of keeping together two sides of her dress. Ann happened to have, and offered to Amy, some double-sided tape, which fixed the situation and saved the day. The double-sided […]
