mary + justin | annapolis yacht club

Last Saturday, I headed up to Annapolis for Mary and Justin’s gorgeous wedding at the Annapolis Yacht Club. I don’t work in Annapolis very often, and it’s such a fun change when I do! It was a hot (HOT!) day, but that didn’t stop Mary and Justin from enjoying every moment of their wedding celebration. They are so sweet and so very much in love. And I really enjoyed getting to know both of their families! The day was full of love, and I felt honored to be there capturing everything.

I started the day at Mary’s sister’s home where all the girls were getting ready. Mary looked absolutely gorgeous!

Love these adorable kids!


Despite the heat, we were still able to drive around Annapolis for some fun photos with the bridal party. Annapolis is just so pretty!

So beautiful.

And Justin looked so handsome.

Mary’s dad passed away seven years ago, and he was dearly missed last Saturday. When Mary was much younger, her dad attended a wedding at the Yacht Club, and he said that it was the best wedding he ever attended. He loved the laid back atmosphere and the way that all the guests were able to mingle. Mary and Justin’s wedding celebration had that same feel, and I think Mary’s dad’s presence was felt all day.

Guests signed the back of puzzle pieces with advice for Mary and Justin to read on their first anniversary. Such a fun idea!

Right around sunset, we went back outside for a few more quick portraits. The light was so lovely!

Seriously, Mary? You’re stunning.


The reception was a blast!

    Kristen, these are just pure magic. You can’t even tell that the temperature was well over 100 degrees! I love every single photo, but the portraits on the docks are breathtaking. You nailed it!
