mary pat + jonathan | cylburn arboretum engagement | baltimore wedding photographer

I always love when couples with a deep connection to Baltimore, return here to get married. It reminds me of our love story a bit: planning a September wedding from afar, where the main goal is for everyone to have fun!!

Mary Pat is originally from Baltimore and still has a large amount of extended family in the area. These lovebirds currently live in Boston, so when I found out they’re working with Courtney of Moore & Company Event Stylists to help execute their wedding day vision, I knew this was going to be not only a fun wedding for their guests, but a rewarding and amazing experience to be a part of as their wedding photographer!cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0005
With a love of being outdoors, Mary Pat and Jonathan’s Cylburn Arboretum engagement session was such a gorgeous location to capture their joy and adorable love! Not to mention, how amazing is Mary Pat’s coral dress?! It was the perfect pop of vibrant color among all of the light pink crepe myrtles and greenery.cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0003cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0012cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0006
Cylburn’s historic mansion is one of my favorite pieces of architecture in Charm City; both elegant and approachable, it is surrounded by the most colorful and lush gardens.cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0011cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0007cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0001cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0008cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0009cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0002I had the best time getting to know you both a bit more and love that you were such troopers as we strolled around the arboretum on one of the hottest nights of the summer! I can. not. wait. for your wedding at Frederick Douglass Maritime Park in Fells Point… kicking off the start of a busy fall wedding season at a waterfront ceremony on the pier is my kind of idea of wedded bliss!!cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0013cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0010cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0014cylburn-arboretum-baltimore-engagement_0015Cheers to officially starting married life together on the water among cool breezes and golden sunsets… so honored and excited to capture your wedding day!!

jordyn + tim | cylburn arboretum | baltimore engagement session

While on a long bike ride along the C&O canal, Jordyn and Tim got engaged – 2.5 years after having met through a mutual friend at a JMU alumni event at a local Fells Point bar. As Tim described how the proposal unfolded, they both laughed about how unexpected it was for Jordyn since she was still wearing her bike helmet as Tim got down on one knee!

After hoping for a perfect spring day to schedule their engagement session at Cylburn Arboretum, it was just our luck that it was chilly and windy during our shoot – but thankfully no snowflakes showed up and you’d never know how cold it was since it was the perfect excuse to stay close! The sun was setting through the trees casting a gorgeous golden hue amongst the daffodils and the mansion was aglow with warm light. The gardens were bright green with the promise of spring… it was absolute perfection!



I love that they wanted to include Tim’s 3 girls in our photoshoot – the love that they all have for each other is palpable and heartwarming! Jordyn chose the perfect outfits to compliment the spring gardens and arboretum setting. These sisters were so sweet and fun together; it reminded me of how fun it is to have siblings. We could have photographed them all day long… 🙂







Jordyn, you are stunning. I love the way Tim looks at you; your laughter is contagious, your smile is wide and you grow more confident with each step.




This moment was one of my absolute favorites.






We can not wait until your June wedding! It’s going to be a day filled with romance, elegance, and most likely, a bit more warmth than we had. 😉 Much love!
