Hi, I'm Lauren! Welcome to my blog! I'm a Maryland wedding and portrait photographer that loves beautiful light and has an obsession with the water. This is my pretty little place to show off all of my most recent photography adventures and the stories behind them. So get comfy and have a look around!

Sarah + Jake : UMD / Newton White Mansion Wedding {Maryland Wedding Photographer}

Their first date was at the University of Maryland dining hall where they were both students.  And Jake said that, from the moment he saw Sarah’s green eyes, he hasn’t been able to get them off of his mind since.  He has fallen in love with her intelligence while she has fallen in love with his curiosity.  As Sarah’s Dad said in his speech, if there is a problem, Jake is there trying to solve it.  And if he can’t figure it out, he’ll go mull it over and research until he’s found the answer.  What an amazing trait this will be to carry over into being husband and wife.  No matter what may come along, Jake will never give up until he can figure it out and make it better.
These two have a true spark.  Full of life and genuine love.  As they said their vows and committed their lives to each other, Sarah and Jake smiled big and laughed aloud.  I really don’t think I have seen a bride smile and laugh as big as Sarah did throughout her wedding day.  Her happiness was contagious and I found myself smiling just as big behind my camera because of her.
And people….ummm….can we talk for one hot second about how gorgeous Sarah and Jake are?  Seriously.  SOO good looking.  Ok….I’m done  😉

Aside from an absolutely amazing bride and groom, I was so spoiled that day by the out of this world lineup of vendors I got to work with.  The venue was beautiful and the food was delish.  The flowers were vibrant and gorgeous.  Jacob of EventPro DJ is so much fun and throws the best parties.  It’s GUARANTEED to be a great time when he’s around.  And then there is Lee and his awesome team from Clickspark.  I’ve been watching his videos with tears streaming down my face for a long time now.  No other video team will make you feel so much emotion and such a connection with a bride and groom that you don’t even know than the Clickspark team will.  It was such an honor to work alongside them for the very first time that day and I hope I get to again!!   And a big thanks to B for being my second!!

That’s Sarah’s brother…..he’s an amazing singer and he sang two songs during their ceremony.  I want him to come sing to me every day.  😉This light.  Oh this light.  I never wanted to move from that spot.  Sarah, you are G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S.Sarah married a male model.  Seriously.  Good job girl  😉
