I met Allie and Daniel last year when they approached me looking for wedding photographers in Annapolis to photograph their wedding. Over the course of time, I got to know them and fell in love with them. As a wedding photographer, I can easily fall in love. In love with people. In love with their character, their integrity, their inner and outer beauty. In love with who they are now and who they wish to grow into and be. In love with their love story. In love with their disposition and the energy that emanates around them.
Allie and Daniel met at University of Maryland for their undergrads before continuing on to pursuing graduate degrees and career tracks that keep them in Maryland! Daniel, who spent a considerable amount of time growing up in Europe, is now working as a technology engineer in New England. Allie, earned her Master’s degree in nutrition science and is currently set to begin her new job at the National Institute of Health. These two are the proverbial powerhouses. Great looks. Extroverted and outgoing. Brains. Great family and friend networks. They will do amazing things in life.
I should point out that Allie’s father, Andrew, was one of the sweetest Father’s-of-the-Bride I’ve seen in a long time. Despite being a man’s man, his unapologetic affection for his daughters is unambiguous. So much so, that despite our plans to have Allie and her dad enjoy an orchestrated “reveal”, Andrew couldn’t wait, and abruptly entered the bridal suite to lay his eyes on the joy of his life. With a smile beaming broadly from ear to ear, he couldn’t restrain himself from the joy he felt and pumped his fist with pride. These moments remind me of why I love my job – to have an opportunity to witness a private moment that is superlatively beautiful.
So join me and my amazing photography assistant (Ursula) in congratulating these love birds and viewing these “sneak peak” teaser shots from their wedding at the breathtaking Golf Club at South River wedding property!
