alma + mike | sotterley plantation wedding

Alma and Mike. I feel like a broken record every time I try to write something about these two but I just keep coming back to an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and love. It feels like I've known them my entire life when in reality it's only been about a year since we connected. From Alma's first enthusiastic email, I knew they were going to hold a special place in my heart.

Julie and Ryan met me on a Sunday morning in one of my favorite Baltimore neighborhoods, Fells Point. we spent some time wandering, giggling, making jokes, finding all the walls and alleys, and just having a blast. i am honored to be able to capture their kind, lighthearted spirits and incredibly beautiful selves and i could not be more obsessed with these images. Julie and Ryan, thank you for an amazing morning -- absolutely cannot wait for your day on September 8!
