Cee Cee & Jake | Eastern Shore Wedding






Cee Cee and Jake stole my heart from the first moment that I photographed their engagement session! Down to earth, genuine, hard working and incredibly full of life – their wedding day was one big celebration of the commitment they have made to one another.

In the backyard, over looking the Chesapeake Bay, a kiss sealed the beginning of their new life together. Friends and family cheered them on as the wind whipped up off of the water. It was truly breathtaking. And every aspect of their wedding day reflected who they are as a couple.

One of my favorite moments was the toast that Cee Cee’s Dad gave immediately following the ceremony. It was so heartfelt and all of the guests gathered round to hear a father’s words on his daughter’s wedding day. Beautiful, emotional, and a reminder of why I love what I do so very much.

Married by the bay grasses and dancing in the candlelight, Cee Cee & Jake’s Wedding was nothing short of spectacular! It was such an honor to document this day and I am incredibly excited to share a few of my favorite images!

Congratulations Cee Cee & Jake!
Sending you both a big hug as you celebrate your first Christmas as newlyweds!
