Claire and James // Wedding at Mount de Sales Academy and Howard County Conservancy

A few weeks back when I met with Claire and James for their engagement shoot in Martinsburg, West Virginia, I quickly learned what a fun-loving and happy couple they were.  This past weekend they tied the knot at Mount de Sales Academy Chapel in Catonsville, Maryland — and the smiles and laughs were amazing.  They were so wonderful to work with, so genuinely happy, as were their guests and family.  I truly loved every minute of shooting their wedding! The reception was at Howard County Conservancy (which I probably called Conservatory about a hundred times), which was such a beautiful venue.  Overall, a fantastic wedding, and I wish Claire and James all the best in their new life together!
