End if Summer Portraits | Family Portraits | Hagerstown, MD

As the school year starts a lot of families are getting a head start on their family portraits. Life moves pretty fast, so why not capture a great photo for the Christmas Cards early?!?

I love showing the love each of my families share! It’s something I find is so important. Leave your phones and to do lists in the car and lets go take a walk in the park.

The perfect day

Chris and Lindsay celebrated their 10 years anniversary with the perfect vow renewal ceremony! They were joined by their closest family and friends to share their love once again. 

Lindsay chose the perfect party favors, flowers, and details for the day. 

Chris and Lindsay are proud parents of two lovely children. They were so excited to be part of their parents special day.

Their ceremony was full of laughter and a happy tears. Both children helped by reading to the crowd, and helping with the tie ceremony. 

The rain held out long enough for us to snap a couple photos of the Chris and Lindsay before the party began!

Cheers to many more years of Love you two!!! Thanks for having us photograph such a special moment in time!

Jeremy & Heather | Clearville, PA | Wedding Photography

Jeremy and Heather met while camping with a group of friends many years ago. It was so fitting to their love of the outdoors when they chose the Creekside Resort as their wedding venue. As Tina and I drove to the venue, we traveled what seemed like miles of winding roads through the forest with no houses to be seen. We both agreed that this was going to be the perfect outdoor location for their wedding. 

After Jeremy & Heather exchanged rings, I watched an old tradition for the first time. The "Jumping the Broom" is a ceremony in which the bride and groom, signify their entrance into a new life and their creation of a new family by symbolically "sweeping away" their former single lives, and jumping over the broom to enter upon a new adventure as wife and husband. 

After the ceremony Jeremy and Heather rode in the most beautiful horse drawn carriage to enjoy their first moments as husband and wife privately. This is something I encourage all of my couples to consider. 

The bridal party photos were so much fun to capture. This image was captured between takes and happens to be one of my favorites. It totally showcases each individuals personality. As a photographer, this is what I always hope to capture. The moment when everyone relaxes and enjoys being present with one another. 

My absolute favorite part of the wedding day is the Bride and Groom portraits. Capturing their love for one another in a romantic way with a beautiful private location is amazing to witness.  

Jeremy & Heather, we wish you the best! Thank you for choosing Hypnotic Imagery, LLC for your wedding photography. It was an amazing day!

Surreybrooke Nursery Portrait sessions

This year I invested in the most beautiful location to photograph my family portraits. Surreybrooke is located in Middletown, MD, between Hagerstown, and Frederick. It truly is a magnificent garden that blooms from March to November. 

These twin girls had the best time running the property, and exploring every nook and cranny. This lovely family portrait was captured by Surreybrooke's only pond resting next to a huge weeping willow tree. 

Penelope loved the pink flowers, as well as toddling along the beautiful pathways. Mom and Dad were always close by loving the sheer joy on their daughters face. Photographing children is one of my very favorite things, and these photos truly express that. 

Occasionally I hand over the camera to run in for the tickle bomb. This little guy couldn't get enough! I live for these moments. Tina captured this wonderful image at the perfect time. As the sun began to set we played in the grass together talking about what a great time we had together. 

Jen and Adam say "I do" at the lovely Historic Savage Mill Manor

Jen and Adam celebrated their wedding at the Historic Savage Mill Manor.  

Bride and groom

The house was buzzing with activity when we got there.  Jens bridesmaids, her 2 sisters and Adams sister, helped her into her dress and shoes. While Adam was taking deep breaths and pacing the floors in a room just down the hall. 

Before the ceremony Jen and Adam met for a quiet moment together. Adam didn't want to see the dress he just wanted to hold her hand.

As the door opened, Adam closed his eyes and waited. His smile grew wider and wider with each step. 

First touch

When their hands touched he let out the breath he had been holding. 

This moment was just what they needed to kick off their life together.  Jen and Adam thank you so much for including us to share in the magic of this day.
