Welcome to my blog! I'm thrilled to be able to share with you my favorite images from weddings, engagements, maternity, and more! Grab a cup of coffee and get snuggly cuz this blog will give you all the feels!
Time moves so fast, I can’t believe it’s already been two years since I photographed Emily & KJ’s wedding! Since that whole experience, Emily, KJ, and I have all grown very close. We are consistently going back and forth between Syracuse and Binghamton to see each other. I can honestly say they are some of my favorite people in the whooooooooole world! Especially since Emily and I have the same brain! 😉
Due to the fact that we think a like, whenever one of us shoot’s the other (Emily & KJ have started up their own photography business in the past 2 years!) we try to make the location challenging. We like to push each other to think, unfortunately both of us usually has the dumb and can’t brain…(read that again) 😉 So of course, Emily and KJ find an old train station that’s being renovated. Tons of debris and dumpsters alllll over the place! But the architecture was so cool we just HAD to shoot there. The owner of the building happened to be there while we were shooting and with a stroke of luck, he invited us to shoot INSIDE! “Ok Mabyn, think, think, THINK!”
Despite the challenges of this location, Emily, KJ, and I had a fantastic time! I don’t think it’s possible to NOT have a good time when I’m around them! So with out further adieu here is Emily & KJ’s Anniversary Session!
Just to give you an idea of the challenge, here are some….environmental shots….;)
Baltimore is a beautiful city! It has so many great places to shoot. While I was there for Katie & Tim’s engagement session, my good friends Lillian and Felipe hired me to do an anniversary session for them. I can’t believe they’ve been married for 3 years already? I really feel like I was just in Nicaragua taking in all of it’s beauty and celebrating with my dear friends. When I asked them what they wanted their shoot to be like, they immediately started chatting about the historic parts of town. They love history, culture, and education so, it’s only fitting that we put them all together. Now I need more excuses to go to Baltimore so I can hang out with them, their happy puppy, and their comfy hammock!
This past weekend was a whirl wind in Baltimore! I was able to spend some time with good friends and make some new ones! Here are the sneaks from Katie & Tim’s You + Me sesh as well as Lillian & Felipe’s Anniversary sesh!

Lillian & Felipe’s Anniversary You + Me
I received an email from Meghan a couple of months ago with a beautiful story. She told me all about her and her husband Erik, how they were married 3.5 years ago in a courthouse, and never had the opportunity to get professional pictures together. On top of that, both she and Erik are in the Army and stationed in Germany! Wow! I think they win for furthest traveled for my services! 😉 Just kidding! Erik grew up in our little piece of the world and they were planning on taking part of their leave here to visit with family & friends. It was such an honor and a privilege to spend a few hours with this beautiful couple. Their quiet love was easy to see, even if they didn’t know it. We had a great time bashing around Green Lakes in the middle of February…yeah…I can’t believe there’s no snow either! Any who. I hope you enjoy their sweet You + Me session! 🙂
