ALYSSA + CHRIS || Kent Island, Maryland - An Eastern Shore Summer Wedding

Alyssa and Chris are two seriously cool cucumbers, and I think with their wedding being on their 9th anniversary (how cool is that?!) they were just so ready, so stoked to get married that they were extra on top of being in the moment and enjoying their wedding. And seriously, there was a lot to enjoy!

Seriously, first looks with bridesmaids are almost as good as first looks with future partners, or at the end of an aisle. All. The. Feelings!

A million ‘not sorries!’ that there’s a million photos shot on/around/through Alyssa veil. I lovelovelove that gauzy texture, and I’m also pretty partial to the hilarity that happened when it just…fell out when she and Chris were giddily cruising back down the aisle after being named Man + Wife.

For being an almost cloudless day, these photos came out so magical - generally the middle of any summer day sends me fleeing to the shade, but we totally worked the strong light, and got some truly breathtaking portraits along the water.

And all the props possible to the guests + wedding party here - they absolutely flooded the dance floor, putting all those folks who wait until the lights are dimmed to boogie down.

Congratulations to A+C - loved being a part of this breezy, beautiful day! -MEJ
