Quiet Waters Park – Sandi + Michael

One of my absolute favorite things about my job is spending my time with happy, joyful people. Sandi and Michael are just those people. These two love to laugh and play around and they are just so stinking cute! The first time I met them I knew that they were a fun couple and that any place they went must always be filled with laughter.:)I was so excited to meet up with them again for their engagement session in Quiet Waters Park!! I’m so grateful to them for introducing me to this gorgeous location (and for giving me a tip about ice skating there come winter;)!).

You can just tell how joyful these two are from their pictures! I can’t imagine how big the smiles are going to be on their wedding day!

 

Sandi and Michael, thank you so much for the laughs on a Sunday afternoon, the privilege of photographing such a joyful, good-looking couple and for picking me to photograph your wedding! I’m so excited for all the laughter, jokes, and great memories to come at your wedding in a little over a week!!

Annapolis Engagement – Dani + Casey

Dani and Casey are absolutely, hands-down one of the most adorable couples I know! These two have known each other practically forever and they act like the cutest best friends (who are getting married next fall! yay!!).  They’re from Virginia but decided to meet me in Annapolis and they really enjoyed the area. They both love the water and Dani especially loved all the brick buildings! I adore these two and their love for each other is absolutely inspiring and so easy to see!:)

The story behind the blanket Dani brought to the session is incredibly cute! The blanket used to belong to Dani’s grandfather and back when these lovebirds went on their first date, Dani brought it along. The blanket ended up going home with Casey and apparently it took Dani a couple years more of dates to get it back!:)I absolutely loved getting to photograph them with something that was such a cute detail of their relationship!!

I’m so happy I got to photography these two! Dani and Casey, you two are the sweetest cuties — I’m so happy for you both and wish you the absolute best!:)<3

Annapolis – Mini Session with Kate

When Kate contacted me about taking a few snaps of her for her graduate school program, I was excited to stretch myself a bit for something I haven’t done before — headshot-type pictures! And when Kate said she wanted to take them in Annapolis I was even more excited!! Annapolis is such a gorgeous place for pictures and if you walk around a bit you can get some variety in the background of your pictures that is amazing! We only had a half hour but we still got to walk around a bit and it was great getting to talk to Kate and hear about her job, her graduate program and her love for Annapolis! This girl seriously has the most gorgeous blue eyes and she’s so easy to photograph–she’s a natural!:) 
  Good luck in grad school, Kate!! Can’t wait to hang out in Annapolis with you again!:)  jm

Bucket List Blessings: The J* Workshop – DC

Welcome, friends, to the first installment of Bucket List Blessings! Last year was amazing in so many ways, not the least of which was starting Jeana M. Photography! This year is shaping up to be even more fantastic than last year and I’m so excited to share all of these blessings with you all.:DFirst off: the Jasmine Star Workshop in DC! I was so incredibly excited when I saw the announcement for the traveling J* Workshops and when I found out that I would be able to go I was downright ecstatic!! Seriously, are you seeing all these exclamation marks?? (Apologies to all of my friends and family who had to deal with my random outbursts–“I’m going to a Jasmine Star Workshop! Guys, it’s happening! Guys, it’s next month! It’s next week–what am I going to wear?!”) When the day finally came, I was incredibly nervous but also so thrilled to get the show on the road!!

 

I met so many amazing photographers, more than a few of them locals (yay!), learned an incredible amount of things (so many notes!), and took some pictures of an adorable couple (giggles + kisses!). I was so inspired hearing Jasmine talk about her passion for her business and hearing so many different perspectives and I look forward to shaking things up a bit. It was a great reminder to keep things fresh!!

 

 

Seriously, how gorgeous and in love are these two?! They were just naturals.

 

 

 

 

 

It was also amazing to meet JD, Jasmine’s hubby and teammate! When I wanted to up my assisting game and prep myself to be the best second shooter I could be, I watched JD’s (and Jasmine’s) Creative Live second shooting course. After that, I packed up my gear bag with first aid, bobby pins, safety pins, spare water bottles, spare snacks, and tissues and wowed the photographer I was assisting with my ready-for-anything attitude! Watching these two work together was a definite highlight.

 

 

 

Thank you so much Jasmine and JD for coming out to DC and sharing your knowledge and experiences with us! And thank you to all the other workshop participants for your traveling and sharing your amazing perspectives with the workshop!! You all made it amazing!

 

Extra thank you’s go out to those who helped make the shoot fabulous:

-Brian and Ana (our ridiculously good-looking couple!)

-Kristine Marie Artistry (kristinemarieartistry.com)

-Ashley from Up Do’s for I Do’s (updosforidos.com)
