Jess & Jim's Intimate, Summer Naval Academy Wedding (Annapolis, MD)

Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
I will not give you up this time
But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
And in your eyes you’re holding mine
— Ed Sheeran

This wedding was such a career highlight. I don’t often have a chance to photograph weddings of friends and this one was extra special, as my daughter was a guest. Plus, I loved all the wonderful little details - the fact that Jess’s sisters made her veil and the bouquets; Jess’s nieces having the time of their lives; close friends and family raising their glasses in celebration.

Jess and Jim dated as teenagers and drifted apart. And now they’ve found their way back to each other. For the last two years I’ve watched them date and joked with them about how they can’t stop smiling whenever they are together. And now they’re married. And still smiling. I’m so happy for them!

SO. MUCH. LOVE.
