evan & evette: old ellicott city engagement session {maryland engagement photographer}

Sometimes you meet a couple and you can just tell they were meant to be. I had the pleasure of photographing Evan, Evette, and their daughter Jade earlier this month. As a photographer, you get a chance to step back and just let your subjects be themselves. Watching Evan and Evette behind the lens, I could tell they had a strong bond and most importantly, a friendship and love for each other that glowed. This positive energy made for a great photo session and of course beautiful images.

I met Evan and Evette through an amazing and talented photographer friend Jeri Houseworth. Evan and Evette live in Maryland but are getting married this summer in New Jersey. Jeri is photographing their wedding but recommended me to photograph their local engagement session (thanks Jeri!).

After some discussion via email and phone, we settled on a location- Old Ellicott City. It was a blistery cold day but we managed to capture some great images. The couple’s beautiful daughter, Jade, also came along for the session and she was such a trooper! Even though it was freezing out, Jade always kept a smile!

Here are a few sneak peek images from the session!


I love photographing in Old Ellicott, the area is rich in history and the variety of colors and textures are always fun to experiment with!



Evan is originally from New Jersey and Evette is from Texas. They first met through match.com and had found a great connection and after a few dates the rest they say is history. BTW, Evan and Evette are the THIRD couple I’ve had the pleasure of photographing who’ve met through Match! A true testament that the site does work! :)


We found an old theatre off of Main Street that had a big letter “E” in the middle. Couldn’t have been more perfect for Evan & Evette! We stopped traffic to snag this image!



sneak peek: baby grover {maryland newborn photographer}

I had the pleasure of photographing little baby Grover a few weeks ago. Grover’s mom, Eve, contacted me a couple months before her due date in order to schedule a newborn session (love how well prepared she was!) We tentatively set a date and waited and waited for baby’s arrival. Mom and dad left the baby’s sex a surprise until delivery date! I can imagine the anticipation!  As you can tell from the sneak peeks- Grover was so worth the wait! He is a handsome little boy with a full head of hair and pinch worthy cheeks!

I was so thankful to have my sister, Phuong, assist on this shoot. She is not only a great photographer, but a baby whisperer and dog wrangler! We definitely wanted to get a shot of Baby Grover with his four legged older brother Seamus :)  

Congratulations Eve & Joey! Hope you enjoy the sneak peeks- many more photos to come!
