Kristie's Big Day & Bridal Session - Teaser Photos!

I just wanted to take a moment and catch up on some blogging and post some killer wedding & bridal photos of Kristie & Corey.

A few weeks ago Kristie & I rocked the city of Annapolis, MD with a fun bridal session shot among the curious crowds, hot cars, Harley Davidsons, and fancy boats. Here are just a few images that gives you a sense of just how rad a bridal session can be. I like to get my brides out there and milk it for all it's worth. They've put a lot of effort and detail into their weddings, and the wedding gown is no exception. Marking that milestone of searching for and selecting the dress should be celebrated with a fun stress-free bridal session...because my bridal sessions totally rock!

Kristie just loved hamming it up!

She made all kinds of friends around town =)

The bikers were kind enough to let her have a seat!

Then came the boats... she got a Captain's attention too...

...and welcomed her aboard!

... and showed her off to passing boaters, LOL

When you're in Annapolis, you're in Naval Academy territory,
so we had to mark the occassion.

While we were roaming the streets, a group of young teens were fascinated by Kristie in her wedding gown and thought it was the coolest thing that we were shooting these!

Nothing better than the tasty late afternoon light spilling around her

Yes I had to indulge myself a little here...

We kept getting plenty of attention around every corner.
It was a beautiful day and everyone was out enjoying the weather.

Yep, Kristie "stopped" traffic!
The guy in the yellow shirt on the right was kind enough to do some traffic control for us.
Notice some of the folks in the background gawking, lol. At almost every bridal session I get asked if it's for a magazine or something. I usually say "yes" since I may submit the images to an actual magazine.

A hot car deserves a hot bride!

I love the Shelby 427 AC Cobras!!
The owner was so welcoming of the idea, I think he just wanted a photo of his car =)

One of my personal favorites...and Kristie's =)

Finally, here are just a few teaser images from their wedding. Despite the torrential downpours and strong winds, everyone had a blast! There was so much love & happiness surrounding these two! My good friend the lovely Sarah Hodzic (one of my favorite wedding photographers in the area!) joined me to second shoot. We had a great time together as always!

This image is indicative as to how crazy a fun loving and lively crowd can get at a reception!

The impressive fireworks display at the Herrington Harbour Marina wowed everyone!

Sarah & I knelt side-by-side to shoot the couple enjoying the show.
It was so great seeing these two soak it in.

And a big shout out to Kristie's parents who also celebrated their 28th wedding anniversary on the same date as Kristie & Corey's wedding. Congratulations!!!!!

More to come =)
