This weekend was an amazing one! Friday was full of inspiring and exciting meetings with two different photographer friends, Natalie of Natalie Franke Photography and Renee of Renee Hollingshead Photography. I met up with Natalie on Friday morning to start to plan more of our “Passport to the Pacific” trip that will take us up the coast of California, over to Hawaii, and finishing up in New Zealand. Of course we got off topic and she ended up convincing me to fly out to Las Vegas this February/March for WPPI! I can’t wait to be in the area during the conference and meet all sorts of incredible photographers. I’m excited to get all of that set up very soon! :)

Later that afternoon, I met up with Renee with the intention of just catching up and seeing what she’s been up to over the last month- but of course after talking about my recent Eurotrip, she caught the travel bug and we started talking about traveling somewhere together! She’s always wanted to go to Europe, and I’m so happy that her husband is letting me steal her away for a dream trip that we planned sitting in that little booth at Noodles & Company! Soooo…another travel announcement- we’re going to Europe and Africa!!

Renee and I will be meeting each other in Morocco this November right around Thanksgiving. We will be visiting Marrakech, and hopefully touring the Atlas Mountains! From there, we’ll fly to Madrid and Barcelona in Spain, Lisbon and Porto in Portugal, and finishing up for one night in Paris before heading back to Washington, DC. We’ll be gone for a little over two weeks and are hoping to take LOTS of amazing photos of people, places, and food while we’re over there! If you or anyone you know has been to any of these places, I’d love if you could comment or shoot me an email with suggestions on things to do! :)

After an exciting Friday, the weekend only got better, with Kelsey and Ryan’s perfect wedding day on Saturday, followed by a morning couples session with Amanda and Jess on Sunday morning. I can’t wait to share more of each of these! :)

Kelsey + Ryan | Annapolis, Maryland Wedding

One of the most fun, happy, incredible weddings I’ve ever shot! Ryan and Kelsey have been together for 10 years and finally tied the knot in downtown Annapolis on Saturday. Their wedding day was GORGEOUS and I’m excited to share more on the blog tomorrow!

Amanda + Jess | Odenton, Maryland Couples Session

Amanda and Jess have been together for three years! After buying a house together, we met up at the park where they had their first date to shoot some portraits to furnish their new home! They are the cutest.
