Baby Burke #2 On the Way! | Washington, DC Family and Maternity Photographer

Today’s the day!  My sister, brother-in-law, and niece are welcoming a little baby into their adorable family today, and I am so excited to meet the little one! It’s crazy to think that just a few years ago, I was sitting at the edge of my seat at work impatiently waiting for a phone call/email/ANYTHING to announce the birth of Allie!  Tomorrow will be a little different, though, I’ll be finding out whether I’ll be spoiling a little niece or nephew! The anticipation is KILLING ME!

In honor of the little kiddo and his/her awesome family, I wanted to post a few of my film and digital photos from their session at the Tidal Basin!  Congrats, Burke Family!  I absolutely can’t wait to meet my niece or nephew today!! 😀  They’ll be SO loved!:)

Steph, your photography is absolutely beautiful! Cara and her family do make the best subjects though! Can’t wait to see the ones you will take once their newest one arrives.

P.S. Can’t wait to see your little boy too!

Luv Annette

Ashley & John are Married! | A Tropical Ocho Rios, Jamaica Wedding | Destination Wedding Photography

It has taken me waaaaay too long to post this gorgeous wedding, but work, house renovations, preparing for the baby, and life have basically kept me from blogging these last few months! I know, I know…excuses, excuses.  I have so many amazing weddings and shoots to share with you all, and I just had to start with Ashley and John’s Jamaican wedding!  It’s always been a dream of mine to shoot a destination wedding, so when Ashley, a sweet friend from high school, contacted me- I just knew Jaeson and I had to be there!

Jaeson and I arrived at the gorgeous Sandals Royal Plantation Resort in Ocho Rios and just knew we had hit the jackpot.  There were so many beautiful locations for photos, and we were about to spend the next few days celebrating the love between Ashley and John with their amazing family and friends. Everyone was so great to be around, and we just loved getting to know everyone.

Ashley and John could make a complete stranger feel like a best friend in a matter of minutes and I just love that about them! Their enthusiasm and happiness are just infectious, and it was so clear everyone that flew down to Jamaica felt the same way.   The day was just perfect, and Jaeson and I consider ourselves to be so lucky, and are so grateful that we were there to witness it all!

Here are a few of my faves from the day-

Rachel & Toly are Married! | Maryvale Castle, Maryland Wedding Photographer

Brides almost always have plans change before or on the wedding day- a certain type of flower isn’t available for the bouquets, the menu needs to change slightly, we need to push back the schedule by a half hour.  While things like that might make it seem like the world is quite possibly ending, most brides are amenable to such changes.  But when your whole wedding comes to a halt just 72 hours before the wedding day, how does one even begin to start completely re-planning a day it took a year to piece together?  Rachel & Toly were put to the ultimate test- just 72 hours before their wedding, they were told that the venue could no longer host their wedding due to the Baltimore riots.  Not only were they out of a venue, but everything had to change.  Not only were they able to find an amazing new venue and work out a new schedule, transportation, lodging, etc. but they did it with GRACE.  Rachel & Toly, I tip my hat to you- you kept your cool, found a venue, and made it work- and booooy, did you MAKE IT WORK.  It was such a gorgeous day and they couldn’t have asked for better weather and company.  Everyone was there to celebrate with them, and there was no hint that this wedding had been planned in just a few short days.  Everything was flawless.  How a bride books a gorgeous castle in a couple days is just beyond me!!
Here are a few of my favorites from the day…

Lindsay & Adam are Getting Married! | Orlando, Florida Engagement Photographer

What’s the recipe for a perfect engagement shoot?  Amazing friends, some awesome bling, palm trees, and DISNEY WORLD!!! Yes, DISNEY WORLD!…but we’ll get to those pictures later! 😉  When Lindsay asked if I could come down to Florida to take her engagement pictures, I may have jumped from my seat squealing!  First of all, Lindsay’s one of my best friends and to see her this happy and to capture it with my camera was an absolute honor.  Second, come on, it’s Disney! Lindsay was one of my awesome bridesmaids, and it just so happens that I’ll be one of her bridesmaids this week when she marries the guy of her dreams- Adam!

I heard about Adam years before they started dating- in fact, when I first heard about him, it was because he had reached out to her and she wanted to make sure she said the exact right thing to him.  While the time wasn’t right for them to date in the past (they were even roomies for awhile!), their moment came last Fall.  After years of it not being the right time, everything came together, and side then, everything has been PERFECT.  I knew it was perfect when Lindsay just couldn’t stop gushing about him everyday of the week.  It was so obvious that she was HAPPY, and Adam was absolutely the perfect guy for her.  I cannot wait to see these two tie the knot on Thursday and to see them start a new fresh chapter in their lives…together.

Here are a few faves from my session, both digital and film…enjoy!:)

Kimberli & Anthony Are Getting Married! | Washington, DC Wedding Photographer

We met at the Tidal Basin on a beautiful morning, and while the gorgeous sunrise was hidden behind clouds, this morning could not have been more perfect!  Kimberli & Anthony chose the iconic Cherry Blossoms of DC as their backdrop for their engagement photos, and it just so happened that we didn’t have to fight for any trees!  It was such a great morning, and it reminded me of how much I am looking forward to their wedding in October!  With the help of Kimberli’s awesome maid of honor, Gina, and a few special cameos made by their pup, Moose, we were able to grab some gorgeous shots with the Cherry blossoms!  Kimberli’s laugh and smile are infectious and it just so happens that Anthony is the reason she’s always smiling and laughing. I absolutely cannot wait to celebrate in October! Here are a few of my faves…
