Alie and Dane are Married! Patuxent River, MD | May 22, 2010

I think it is beyond reasonable to say that on May 22, 2010, the photographer at a certain (awesome) event was more nervous than the bride at that said event. Alie pulled up to the church in multicolored socks, soccer cleats and a veil in her hair. I asked her if she was nervous, she shrugged her shoulders and replied, "Naaaah, but wait! This is your first wedding! You must be nervous! Girl, you're gonna do great!" Can you believe that she was more concerned about if I was nervous than herself? Alie, you are not only a fantastic person, but a fantastic bride! But this whole situation gets better- she married the love of her life that day, Dane, and I was lucky enough to witness it all! How amazing is this job?! I get to capture one of the most important days in people's lives.

Not only are Dane and Alie amazing, cool people- their families and friends are too! They were all so nice and inviting! I think this might've had to do with the fact that some of them are from my hometown (what up, Manalapan!?)- it's a small small world!

The girls all made their bouquets before the wedding- I think that's a great way to add a personal touch!

I LOVE the next two pictures! Dane just looked so so happy to be standing up there. As soon as Alie started walking down the aisle, a huge smile spread across his face. Priceless.


One of the funniest moments of the night: Alie forgetting her bouquet when she walked down the aisle, but none of that mattered. She laughed and whispered loudly down the aisle, making fun of her mistake, but as soon as she caught a good glimpse of Dane, she rushed down to the aisle to meet her soon-to-be husband. :)


Yay, she got her bouquet! (Yes, that rhymes)


Of course it started to pour once we got to the beautiful Patuxent River Naval Base, where the reception was to be held, but after that rain, the lighting was perfect. Couldn't have asked for better light!

Love this next picture!





Seriously, how cute are they?!



Walking around in mud in cute shoes is a big no-no, so luckily Cara, my awesome sister/second shooter, offered to lend Alie her shoes for a little while.


Work it, work it!








First dance as Mr. and Mrs. Taylor!

This last shot basically sums up the fun and laid-back night. These two are just awesome. :)

Alie and Dane, thank you so so much for letting me spend this day with you, your families and your friends. Your day was special to me on so many levels, and I will never forget it. You are both incredible people and I know you'll make each other very happy for many many years to come. Congratulations!

Memorial Day in Philly!

Fishing, hockey, barbeques.

Ok, one of those things is not like the others. I'll give you a hint- ok, no, I'll just tell you. Fishing? Hockey? Psssh, this girl doesn't usually do that. Barbeques? Ohhh yeah, I looove barbeques.

But regardless of whether or not I usually go fishing (or maybe just watch someone fish) or watch hockey (and pretend to know what's going on), I had an awesome time doing ALL of it in Philly this weekend.

Tom and I had fun following Joe around like the paparazzi (cue GaGa here...)- he was definitely a good sport, until he went all i'm-going-to-shave-my-head-like-Britney crazy. He just couldn't handle...what a shame.


And of course I had to get some shots of Tom with his new awesome camera (I'm not jealous. Ok, yes I am)

I had to trek down a steep muddy hill in a dress and flip flops to get down to the water, but it was totally worth it.

What I didn't include in that list was kickball, beer, sightseeing, and Mets bashing. I don't think you have to guess which one of those I was NOT pleased about. Whatever, they're just jealous of my awesome team. ;)


The next day Tom, Pat and I walked around downtown just snapping some pictures. I just can't get enough of this city. :)

Ohh, and then I got to see them play an aweeesome game of kickball!


I was sad to say goodbye to Philly, but I'll be back soon! After getting back to DC, I met up with Kaelyn for some headshots! Here's a sneak peek! :) The shoot was full of boom box, salsa dancing, old pickup trucks goodness!


And, of course, the weekend was memorable because we were celebrating our Freedom. Our Freedom that so many people take for granted.
Our Freedom that we owe to the men and women serving our country so selflessly.
Thank you for everything you do.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and remembered to thank someone who served or is currently serving in the military.
