Maralize + Jesse \\ Ridley Creek State Park \\ Media, PA Anniversary Session

Maralize + Jesse were married this past January (brr!), but unfortunately ran out of time for a long portrait session on their wedding day. Maralize contacted me about an anniversary session where they could get back into their wedding finery, and of course I said yes – who would deny a girl a second chance to put on her wedding dress? Not I :)

We met up in Ridley Creek State Park, which is so, so pretty.

I’m thinking maybe all newlyweds should have anniversary sessions… because Maralize is GLOWING. Just sayin’. :)

Spring Round-Up

I want to love spring! It’s true. I like the idea of spring. But my runny, red, and sad nose just can’t get on board. At least the coming of spring means Rita’s is open, and I can ask Kealan if we can go get gelati every twenty minutes. He says yes at least 20% of the time.

Round-up time!

Sabrina's Brunch photo

We ate at some of our favorite places – Sabrina’s, and DC’s Founding Farmers. Farmers, we miss you SO much up here. Please bring your fried chicken salad to Philadelphia. Please.

We celebrated our friend (and former ADP bride!) Carolyn’s birthday at Frankford Hall, and everyone except me donned mustaches because true confessions: stickers give me major heebie jeebies.

‘Tis the season for showers! One baby, two bridal.

Jeff + Alex’s wedding is next month and I am molto excited :) I think Jeff is planning on wearing those fur feet, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Colby is Colby.

I tried to get pictures with him when we were out adventuring with Kealan, but it was mostly embarrassing for me (and him, apparently).

Shower season also means wedding season! My wedding season as a photographer starts SOON! But first, I got to start the season as a guest and a MOH :) First, Sara + Elijah:

Second, lady Becca and mister Chris. Cue: heart explosion.

My co-MOH and the best man were pretty pleased with our car decorating prowess. Definitely had to look up how to spell prowess.
