Rain was in the forecast that day and dark, black clouds could be seen in the distance. But when I entered Jessie’s childhood home in Mount Airy, MD where she was getting ready for her special day, her smile lit up the room and wiped away my worries about the impending storms. There was hustle and bustle as Jessie finished getting her makeup ready, as Sarah shot some details, as the bridesmaids got into their dresses, and as the family put together all of the final touches, but joy just radiated throughout the room!
In the backyard they had set up for the ceremony with a handmade arbor, and the sun shone bright throughout the ceremony as Mike and Jessie said their I-do’s! The rain didn’t come until well into the reception, after these two were officially husband and wife! Even in the pouring rain, this sweet couple danced the night away under the cover of the backyard shed, surrounded by their loved ones!
Thank you so much to Sarah of Photos by Sarah Beth for having me as her second shooter that day, and to Jessie and Mike for being so kind and welcoming! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and joy!

And now for a special announcement! After learning so much from Sarah, and as I continue learning through the International Academy of Wedding Photographers, I feel confident to start booking my own weddings! If you, or someone you know, are getting married in 2016, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or just to chat! I would love to work with you!
