Samantha & Ben are married! Jerusalem Mill Elopement, Maryland Wedding Photographer

I absolutely love when my love of photography allows me to reconnect with old friends! Ben and Samantha and I all attended the same school growing up and now they are married!! I was SO SO thrilled when I first got her message about taking photos of their ceremony, especially because this was such an intimate ceremony. A beautiful elopement ceremony in fact! Ahh I feel so honored to have been a witness to their sweet vows and to get to spend the afternoon with them and their sister and another high school friend! Even though the weather was looking like it might rain for much of the afternoon, mother nature was kind and held off for us and we had an amazing time after their ceremony taking photos of the two of them, and also the four of them! If you can’t tell already, I am so excited to share these photos and Sam & Ben’s sweet wedding story now!
