Sarah and Chip are two of the sweetest people I’ve had the pleasure of photographing! They’re both so thoughtful and kind and whenever I think of them, I smile… :)

Their wedding at the Cork Factory Hotel in Lancaster, Pennsylvania was so beautiful and fun! The Cork Factory is tucked downtown and has such a cool vibe, mixing history with a fresh modern taste. Sarah chose neutral tones with hints of green and peachy blush which highlighted the venue perfectly!

Tyler and I loved being a part of this special day… We actually went to high school with Chip and many of the guests so it was fun to see everyone and spend time celebrating their love together! Their last song was absolutely EPIC… not a seat was filled – everyone was on the dance floor and giving it their all! So much love to these two! Can’t wait to see what life brings you both. :) xoxo

This day was one that was anticipated for quite some time… These two have spent much their relationship long-distance due to the nature of their careers… Katie’s being an actress out in LA and his time being spent serving our country in the military (thank you!). But no matter how many miles separated them, they remained strong and grew in their love for each other.

Katie, her and Jake’s mom, and her maids all spent time getting ready for the day at the Loews Hotel in Annapolis. Katie’s headband and gown were absolutely beautiful, complimenting each other with their delicate beading and elegant details.

Once she was ready, it was time to leave for the ceremony at Historic Christ Church in Stevensville, Maryland, just across the Bay Bridge! I fell in love with this little chapel instantly… It was like a little gingerbread house! How adorable is this??

Their ceremony was sweet and intimate… led by a friend of Katie’s who led with such a heartfelt loving message to them. Following their sword arch in just a few drops of drizzle, we headed over to the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club!

Tyler and I were so excited to spend 4th of July weekend on Eastern Shore! We arrived to Bordeleau Winery in Eden, Maryland (just outside of Salisbury) and drove down their long lane that ran parallel to their vineyards. At the end of the lane was a big beautiful home, with a gorgeous tasting room building and a courtyard with a brick fireplace and gorgeous grassy area, set up for Francesca and Tyler’s reception with a big white tent!

Julie from A Touch of Jules (such a sweetheart and so organized and helpful!) greeted us, showed us upstairs to the room above the winery’s tasting room where Fran would get dressed, and gave us a recap of the day’s events. We settled in and took a little tour of the beautiful venue!

Francesca’s family has always vacationed on the Eastern Shore, and this was somewhere they enjoyed visiting, so they thought it would be the perfect place for the wedding and it was!

Mary and Patrick have known each other since middle school, and reconnected through mutual friends a few years ago! They got engaged at the University of Maryland Chapel in August of 2014. Mary has two older sisters who have both gotten married at that same Chapel, so naturally, it was the perfect place for she and Patrick to get married!

Mary teaches first grade, and Patrick works at Towson University. They’re both bright and fun and have personalities that really compliment one another! They love to be adventurous and active, whether it’s hiking or biking, playing tennis together, or cooking.

Their wedding day was happy, bright, and fun… just like them. Mary got ready at her parent’s house with her sisters and friends.

From the moment I met them, I just loved Amanda and Jesse. They have a natural cool vibe, kind and genuine hearts, and classic style with a twist. The Lord Baltimore Hotel was the perfect venue for them because it had a timeless feel with a modern edge and I felt like it’s details suited their tastes perfectly! The details of the day had hints of gold threaded throughout. The invitation, the belt of her gown, the table settings, even the accent decor in the ballroom was gold!

Amanda was getting ready all the way at the top in the 4th Penthouse Suite! The lighting was moody and interesting! I love her getting ready shots!

Kirsten Smith Photography, Family Photos, Kayak Trip, Maryland Photographer

For seven years now, the Smiths and Ippoliti’s (Tyler’s side) have all gone kayaking at Watermelon Park in Berryville, Virginia. It’s crazy to think that we’ve been doing this for that long now! We always have shirts printed by Uniform Graphix out of Westminster, Maryland (they do an amazing job!) with a different design each year. It’s always a blast and we just love being together…

You guys know Tori! Shei and Erik came last year too… Here’s a little peek at the shirt design that I drew this year! We don’t take our phones or cameras on the river with us anymore… As you can imagine, when we flip, technology floats to the bottom so until we invest in waterproof cameras, there’s no actual float footage but we have the best time… The park staff loads us up with the rented kayaks in two vans, and drop us off about 5 miles up the river. We then kayak until we’re done… about 4-5 hours depending on how fast the water is moving… This year it was moving fast so we got done quickly! More time to be together back at Mark and Tracy’s! This year we saw two Eagles (saw a couple last year too!) and a water snake which thankfully I did not see and did not find out about until close to the end… I am petrified of snakes and would have damn near fainted no doubt. Seven years floating and I’ve never seen one….. Phew. We also saw a heron and ducks… and a few fish jump up out of the water! We all float in packs… switching it up every so often as we go over the little rapids. It’s such a relaxing time and so fun to be together enjoying nature… Then we return to Tracy and Mark’s for part 2 of the day… Dinner and drinks!
Kirsten Smith Photography, Family Photos, Kayak Trip, Maryland Photographer
We LOVE these two to pieces!! They enrich our lives so much and we are so happy that they came to float with us again, and fit right in with our family! Kirsten Smith Photography, Family Photos, Kayak Trip, Maryland Photographer

We sat together for a while and told stories, had a few cocktails, and hung out until it was time for dinner. We all sleep over that night – hence the tents!

FAMILY TREE: Tyler’s father’s name is Dan. He has Ryan (who lives in Florida), Tyler, and then Jarod. Dan’s sister Tracy and her hubby Mark are the Ippolit’s… His brother Matt and his girlfriend Cheryl also came along with Matt’s daughter Kellie, her boyfriend Jarrett, my brother Jesse and his gf Karlie, Tori and Erik, and Jarod’s gf Mary… FUN group!

We party hardy into the night… sleep over… and wake up to amazing coffee. Everything just tastes better in that house! Probably because we’re all together and all of the goodness is heightened. We hung all of our float shirts (yes, we’re missing a couple – we didn’t do shirts 2 of the 7 years…) on a tree for a photo – something kinda funny that Pop Pop used to do… Family story… now carried on through our own shenanigans… Kirsten Smith Photography, Family Photos, Kayak Trip, Maryland Photographer

This year will fly by and soon enough, it’ll be that time again….. This year has definitely topped the rest! Cheers to next year! And love you all…

Amanda and Joe met during their freshman year at Stevenson University and started dating during their senior year when they had a class together. He’d walk her to her car after class and she began to attend his lacrosse games to support her now-fiancé! That was over five years ago… Now they spend their time with their adorable black lab named Kona, snuggling on the couch by their fireplace or exploring the outdoors together. Amanda says that their signature lovey dovey phrase is, “I love doing life with you…” which I find to be just so absolutely special…

These two are so sweet, sophisticated in a fun and relaxed sort of way, and just so happy and content to be with each other… And it shows! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from our evening together!Ellicott City Engagement Session, Maryland Wedding Photographer, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com

Kona was such a good girl! She loved being able to run the path through the woods and cool off in the river! And can we just take a second to talk about a- Amanda’s gorgeous hair, and b- that ring??? Whew! #STUNNERALERT

These two are planning a June wedding this upcoming September at Springfield Manor in Thurmont, Maryland… And to say that I’m excited is quite the understatement! :) So excited for these two and to be on part of their journey with them…

XO!

Courtney and Kevin met about a decade ago, just before their Junior year of high school. Kevin was life-guarding at the Edward P. Thomas Memorial pool in Frederick, Maryland in Baker Park, and Courtney was on the dive team that practiced there. They went to different schools but would see each other while out and about or while hanging out with mutual friends… They started spending more time together just one-on-one, and “the rest is history” Courtney says! She said there was an instant connection and comfort while spending time together, and they knew it was meant to be. They  lived together throughout all four years of college and after graduation, saved up to buy a house in Frederick a couple years ago where they live with their cat, LeRoi.

(Remember Christa and Adam?? Kevin is Christa’s cousin and played guitar during their ceremony! They’re big Dave Matthews Band fans too, just like Christa and Adam are!)

They love the same music my hubby and I do, so we spent time talking about meeting some of our favorite bands, going to concerts, and went on and on about the reggae music scene while we walked around the park. It was such a pretty summer night! I absolutely loved hanging out with them… I just love when my couples enjoy the same vibes I do! :)

Here are a few of my favorites!

We took a walk down to the pool where they first met… It was so sweet to listen to them reminisce. The cute little elderly lady at the front desk, who’s been working that job for a LONGGGG tiiiime, still remembered them! They said everything looked and felt the same, and told a few stories about what they remember from their time spent there… I couldn’t help but want to dive right in! The water looked amazing!

Welcome to the world, Henry! Remember Megan & Alex from my 2014 wedding season? You may remember her grannysmith-apple bridesmaid’s dresses and adorable mint Kate Spade shoes… Or just how adorable this couple is together… Swoon! I just love them. Super chill, sweet couple. And yes, I say that about all my couples but they really are just that awesome…

Sweetheart Henry was born just a few weeks ago and made his photo debut along with his mommy and daddy, and big brother Boh… Look at those sweet little lips! He’s got the most beautiful skin and quiet little disposition… He did great! Of course we kept it simple and had him snuggle with mom and dad after I photographed his beautiful nursery…

Megan and Alex went to high school with Tyler and I. It’s amazing to think about how fast time flies… How it doesn’t see that long ago that we were all sitting next to each other in class… And now we’re all grown up, married, and doing the whole adulting thing…. :) I love how happy they are!

  • Kimberly Breeden- Bell - These are sooooo cute! Henry is such a little blessing! Can’t believe that you all know each other too. What a small world. Megan was one of my student interns in grad school at SPEECH PATHways and Tyler manages my building where SPEECH PATHways is at now and Kirsten took our family pics too!

Lauren and Jamie were married on a beautiful June day in Annapolis, Maryland. Lauren’s parents live in a beautiful home near the water just outside of Annapolis. When I arrived. Lauren had the wedding gowns of her grandmother, mother, sister, and her own on display along with her sister Meg’s daughter’s flower girl dress… Absolutely such a sweet and special photo op and I loved seeing the styles of all of the gowns. Aren’t they absolutely beautiful together? Lauren’s parents’ home is just gorgeous too with so many lovely details in their decor…Kirsten-Smith-Photography-Lauren-Jamie-Wedding-37Governor Calvert House Wedding, Annapolis Wedding, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, MarylandGovernor Calvert House Wedding, Annapolis Wedding, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, Maryland

Lauren and Jamie’s traditional ceremony at Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church was very sweet and so heartfelt. Rev. Dr. Susan DeWyngaert, their officiant, was so natural and kindhearted as she led, with a very personal thread throughout their ceremony. I loved the look of this church!Governor Calvert House Wedding, Annapolis Wedding, Kirsten Smith Photography, www.kirstensmithphotography.com, Maryland
