One of our main goals in everything that we do… in life really… is to spread love. To share happiness and not only be an example of love to the world, but to share examples of love with this world! It is not always about the perfect picture, or the perfect location, or the perfect light… it IS always about love.
As I was editing Ali and Phil’s Annapolis Engagement Session, there were so many moments where I just stopped and could not help but be reminded of the love they share. Ali and Phil are so easy going! They are go with the flow in the best kind of way and we just love that! Their engagement session consisted of a stroll around Annapolis on a beautiful summer evening and it was magical!
Ali and Phil… We hope these images are a lifelong reminder of the beautiful love you share. When you look at them, we want you to feel loved in an incredibly special way… because you are loved in that incredibly special way! ;)
With the launch of AMAZING Life Together months ago and our desire to truly use our talents in a meaningful way, we have had the absolutely incredible opportunity to meet some AMAZING couples and gift them with a photography session that not only leaves them with unforgettable memories but touches our hearts in big ways!
We usually walk into these sessions with a happy heart knowing we are capturing photos that our couples will cherish now and forever… but we always walk away with so so so much more than that happy heart! Photographing and filming couples who believe in their love and work really hard to make their relationship as AMAZING as it can be, inspires us in big ways!
Megan and Kyle participated in the AMAZING Life Together #AmazingSimpleLove Instagram (@amzlifetogether & @Liz_and_Ryan) challenge just a few weeks ago! They shared with us the simple things that they do together to make their marriage AMAZING! And in doing so, they were the lucky winners of the Anniversary photo session that we gave away!
Megan and Kyle live just a short drive from Chicago… so we met up with them while we were out there photographing Cathy and Jeff’s engagement session! They are incredible! and they shared their love story with us so that we could share it all with you over at AMAZING Life Together! Please take a moment to go see the photos from their Chicago Anniversary Session and read their love story! We know there is always something to be learned from everyone and we are so excited for the honor to be able to share it!!! Thank you Megan and Kyle for sharing your beautiful example of love with us!
I have always dreamed of living on a farm. Ryan always jokes with me that I don’t want to actually work on the farm, I just want to live in a farm house. ;) That might be true. However, after Una and Matt’s Butler’s Orchard Engagement Session… I am pretty much convinced, whether I have to work on it or not, living on a farm is definitely still a dream to me! ;)
Una and Matt proposed the idea of going blueberry picking for their engagement session and we could not have been more excited! What a super fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon… strolling through the beautiful blueberry fields while enjoying some blueberry soda and taste-testing just a few berries along the way!
Believe it or not, it is actually not very easy to find a farm who is willing to allow professional photographers on their property for a session like this! But Una and Matt struck gold when they found Butler’s! It was such a perfect location and they could not have been more accommodating! We are so grateful they were so willing to share their beautiful farm with us!
Just a side note… when we do live on our farm ;), we will definitely open up our property to share with others so everyone can enjoy the beauty and the peacefulness of it all too! ;)
Una and Matt- thank you for such a fun session! We loved strolling those fields with you and we cannot wait for your Kent Manor Inn wedding in just a few weeks! ;)

Here are just a few comments from our friends who joined us last year! Seriously… you should join us! ;)
From the moment we photographed TJ’s proposal to Carol exactly 1 year before their wedding day, we could not wait to photograph their wedding! There is something about witnessing a proposal that makes you feel a special connection to the couple. It is such an AMAZING moment in their lives and we were blessed to have the opportunity to not only witness it, but capture every emotion from that special day. I am pretty sure we were the only ones, besides the security guard who had a watchful eye on us ;), who witnessed that beautiful moment. We knew right then and there that their wedding would hold an extra special place in our hearts.
Exactly 1 year later, we were standing just yards away from their proposal location at Loyola University Maryland when Carol and TJ exchanged letters with each other (without seeing one another) just minutes before Carol walked down the aisle. As with the proposal, that moment was one that we will always remember. It was incredible to see the emotion just pour out of them. Between TJ’s tears and sniffles you could hear Carol’s sweet giggles as they read line by line. What a beautiful moment!
It truly is such an honor to be there to witness such incredible moments in couple’s lives. Carol and TJ are one of those couples who we know in our hearts prepared just as much (if not more) for their marriage as they did their wedding day! Their beautiful emotion is a testament to how incredibly meaningful these moments truly are! We are so grateful to have Carol and TJ in our lives!
How much fun are they?!? Carol and TJ surprised all of us by doing a quick change just before the reception was over! Carol and TJ are HUGE country fans and this was the PERFECT way to send them off to their honeymoon! ;) (seriously, I am pretty sure they have been to every single country concert in the area over the past few years! ;)… and did I mention that most of the tickets they won on the radio?!? ;) That is another whole super fun story! ;)). So much fun! and just another reason why we love these two so much! ;)
Huge thanks to everyone who helped make Carol and TJ’s wedding so special!
