May 11th is going in the books as one of my all-time favorite weddings. It truly was perfect in every way! I feel so lucky to have been invited to a gorgeous private estate on the Eastern Shore to capture Maria and Juan’s big day! This isn’t a typical wedding venue — the stunning property has everything from water views, to fields of flowers, to sprawling gardens and forests. I was in photographer heaven!
Maria and Juan met in Spain, where Juan and his family call home. Maria was abroad, working as an English teacher — and she was actually Juan’s tutor, teaching him English! From there, they started falling for each other and their bi-continental relationship eventually brought them to California. They’re so excited to start their lives together!
*Thank you to Morgan Kelley for second shooting with me*
The sweetest girls ever. Loved hanging out with them!
Opening a diamond necklace from her groom. Ah!
Maria, you are STUNNING!
This house was so open and airy! Obsessed.
Meanwhile, over with the guys!
Juan and his groomsmen were hilarious! A 10/10 wedding party.
Time in the gardens before the ceremony!
Time to say I Do…
Maria’s brother walked her down the aisle. SO sweet.
It started raining, but Maria and Juan didn’t panic. They were married!
The rain cleared just in time for portraits. Look at this yellow field!!
I just couldn’t believe I was shooting here… so wonderful.
Then Maria said, “Oh look! A swing!” I love this one!
If you know me, you know I love flower crowns.
Time for a party! Such a pretty set-up under the tent.
Beautiful first dance… one of my favorites I’ve seen!
A pretty cool surprise from Ukrainian dancers, to kick off the party…
Dancing the night away. Congratulations, newlyweds!
"Paige's work is absolute perfection. She was one of the first vendors I booked and one of the easiest and sweetest to work with... She was warm and welcoming, and made us feel like we knew what we were doing. At our wedding, Paige was the biggest blessing. My gosh, are our photos beautiful. I can't thank her enough. They are everything we could have wanted!"
"Paige is so kind and helpful. She answered any questions I had leading up to my wedding in a timely fashion and she gave great tips for preparing for photos. I was able to focus on each moment and let Paige do her thing! Paige made me feel so comfortable. The photos we've gotten back are just gorgeous. Paige is professional, kind, and amazing at her job!"
"Paige is amazing! If you're considering her as your photographer, you will not regret it. As soon as we talked to Paige, we knew she was perfect! She was well-organized and made us feel so comfortable. She was such a trooper throughout the day, keeping it light and fun through the portrait process. Our photos are absolutely stunning. We'll cherish them for the rest of our lives!"
"Paige was our wedding and engagement photographer, and both experiences were fantastic! Paige is such a warm and welcoming person that my husband and I felt at ease in front of the camera. She's totally down-to-earth and so fun to work with. She photographed our wedding day so beautifully and made sure to capture every detail... We will treasure the images forever!"
"I can't even begin to explain how amazing Paige was when she shot our wedding! She knew exactly what to do to make my husband and I feel like our best selves, and her photos captured our love perfectly! Paige is so professional and essentially kept everything running smoothly before our ceremony began. Not to mention, her photos are the most beautiful I've seen!"
