Jessica & Kevin’s wedding at the Zoo

It’s been such a long time coming on this blog post!! I don’t know how fall has flown by like this, but here we are! But on a cold day like today, I’m more than happy to think back to this beautiful warm weekend when Jess and Kevin got married!! :)  These two are so fun to photograph! Kevin keeps Jess laughing – which I knew already from their sweet Annapolis engagement session! With everything from “Blue Steel” poses to riding a majestic eagle on the carousel to posing with the bouquet, he definitely kept her smiling, and it makes it so sweet to capture their love and how much fun they have together! And in keeping in that playful spirit.. after the ceremony, we even got to snag some portraits with two amazing “Animal Ambassadors” at the Zoo!! Did y’all know this was a thing you can do?! Such a cool experience!! Jess and Kevin truly had the sweetest day, filled with cute moments, cute animals, cute DIY details, and an amazing time for all! It was such an honor to get to photograph their day, and I have a ton of favorites to share from it!! Enjoy re-living this sweetness, and congratulations again Jess & Kevin!!!


Completely obsessed with these beautiful handmade bouts that Jess DIY’d!! They and the bouquet all turned out so great!!

How awesome is this ring box?! It’s the same one Kevin used to propose too! <3

Jess you’re such a gorgeous bride!! 

Loved being able to capture these two beautiful friends again! (Last time was when Valerie was the bride!)

First look feels! So much joy!

When you’re getting married at the zoo… you gotta have some fun! haha love these portraits around the carousel 

We saw lots of (non-zoo) wildlife on our excursions around the zoo too!

Kevin giving me his best blue steel haha

SO stunning!! Love this shot (taken by my second shooter and mom)!

How stunning is Jess’ mom’s dress.. matching trains!


The sweetest part about the zoo? Getting to say hi and get photos with these adorable animal ambassadors!

That sunset! This group’s energy! Loving it all!!

How cute are these little escort name card holders?!

Bel Air girls… and I hopped in too! :)

When the reception wraps up with a big group hug/dance between two of your lovely couples!! Heart = happy!! <3 

Sparkler exit time!! The sweetest way to cheer on this fun celebration!


Congratulations Jess & Kevin!
