March 27, 2013 Maskell Family | Nottingham, MD Maternity and Family Session

This was my first time meeting Tom,...

March 18, 2013 Andrew and Jackie | Sunrise Trash the Dress Session | Cancun, Mexico

I met Andrew and Jackie at 5:45 am the day after their wedding (if you missed it on Friday-click here) for their trash the dress session. I was up all night backing up and culling images, they were up late partying. We were a very sleepy group, but it was well worth sacrificing a bit of sleep for the early morning light. Here are just some of my favorites from their morning-after "trash the dress" session. To learn more about...
