I'm Candace and I'm a destination wedding & portrait photographer based out of the Washington, D.C. area. Chances are you won't find me in the DMV for too long. Come and explore my corner of the world with me!
YOU GUYS! Sometimes things just line up perfectly like they were meant to be! Sam had reached out to me in hopes of having me photograph her wedding day to her fiance (at the time) Zach. Unfortunately, I was already booked on their date and wasn’t going to be able to capture their day for them. Then Sam + Zach switched their wedding plans up and we weighed all of our options! Turns out, the day before their wedding, I had plans to have a styled type of shoot at a new and upcoming wedding venue that my friend just purchased called Historic Cedar Hill! Which let me tell you, it is such a BEAUTIFUL location for local weddings here in Southern Maryland! The manor is beautiful and has so much character and charm! The property doesn’t hurt either with sweeping farm views, rose gardens, rolling hills, tree lined drive way. Its perfection! Anyhoo, we were going to need a couple anyways so I mentioned that to Zach + Sam and they jumped at the opportunity! Like I said, things couldn’t have worked out better!
Sam prepped and arrived to the manor first so that she could step into her gown there and prepare for their first look! Zach cried, I cried, we all cried! It was a roller coaster of emotions the entire morning! We then headed over to their ceremony location under a beautiful large oak tree where Zach + Sam exchanged their vows to each other. It was so intimate and personal. All three of us were in tears, again! I gave them some time to love on each other and to take in the moment before the real cuddles came into play! We had all of this gorgeous property at our finger tips and had such a good time wandering around living in the moment! The next day, these two tied the knot for real infront of their closest family and friends before dancing the night away at their home! Wishing you two the happiest marriage! So thankful that I was able to witness such a raw and perfect day for you both! Enjoy my many favorites!
