Now I’d typically call this an Engagement Session but since Matt and Melissa were already married we’re calling it a Love Session! I had the honor of photographing their vow renewal ceremony but because most of the pictures they have are with their 4 kids they wanted some especially with the two of them!
The simple ceremony was at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis, MD and the weather was perfect! I’ve been working away at editing their ceremony pictures and I can’t wait to share them with you.
This post is being written because today is my parents 32nd wedding anniversary! Two years ago we threw them a combined birthday and anniversary party where I was in charge of getting pictures from over the years. I had so many but at the time I didn’t have these frames. So for some months after the photos stayed just on poster board. I decided last year that for Christmas I was going to redo our hallways photo collage as part of my Mom’s Christmas present. I really wish I had a before pictures of the frames that were up from the late 80s/early 90s. I wish I had better photos than these iphone pictures but you’ll get the idea!
I got these collage frames and some more set of frames to hang and my sister and I gave the hallway a fresh coat of paint!
With my dad help to hang them all evenly we got them all hung up before Christmas! 😉
The three center frames read “We may not have it all together, but together we have it all”, “In time of test, family is best” and the center frame holds my parents birthday, their anniversary in red, and then their children’s birthdays.
I had more frames left over so I started another collage grouping going up the wall, that hopefully over the years will be added too.
I can’t wait to finish editing these. There were so many good photos to choose from! Special thank you to all my help! Jodi from Cherry Tree Photography for doing some behind the sessions, Jen for Hair, Tonya for Make up, and Kelsey’s Kloset for wardrobe and accessories!
Yesterday was another sad day and we’re faced to mourn our country having another mass shooting.
Rest in Peace

I hope that the others with non fatal injuries recover as quickly as possible both physically and mentally. And always in times like these but also everyday, thank you to the dedicated police officers, medical staff and all other first responders who help save lives.
