Annapolis Maritime Museum Wedding || Gail & David




On the stunning Chesapeake Bay at the Annapolis Maritime Museum, Gail and David intertwined their story for all time. The scenery was breathtaking as sail boats came and went, and tidal waters glistened in the sunlight. Their family and friends gathered on the dock front of the Museum to celebrate the brand new Mr. & Mrs. Hutchinson.

Gail was surrounded by a bevy of beauties wearing gorgeous rose quartz colored flowing gowns from BHLDN. Davids men wore Navy suits and ties to match the ladies. David looked extra dapper in his striped bowtie that set him apart on this special day. And of course, Gail was radiant in her gown with its exquisite beading. The beaded illusion back was a showstopper for sure.

I adore the way, Gail intertwined her Wedding design with the resident beauty of the museum artifacts and historic waterfront. The nautical feel was natural, and not overdone. It classy, elegant, and memorable.

More importantly, David and Gail’s love for one another and their friends and family were abundantly evident.

Congrats you two!!!





Dave and I met through mutual friends at a party. He moved to Annapolis here from Pittsburgh for work, and he had just finished going through the fire academy. My sister lives in Pittsburgh so we instantly had something in common to talk about. After our first date, we were practically inseparable. We bought a house about a year ago in Cape St. Claire and are having a blast doing projects and getting the house just the way we want it. We look at everything like an adventure ????

Dave proposed to me in Pittsburgh in January. His mom and I were planning him a surprise birthday party in the city, but really he and his mom were planning our engagement party. I was in complete shock and definitely never saw it coming, well, not that night at least! He planned the whole thing perfectly and even had my parents and all five of my siblings there (flew one in from New York City, and another in from Florida). It was the most amazing day of my life!! I feel like the absolute luckiest girl in the world to be marrying this man!

Manda is
A creative genius!

I met Manda when she photographed a wedding I was maid of honor in. I got to know her throughout the wedding planning process and spent lots of time with her on the day of that wedding. Her demeanor, positive energy, and absolutely stunning shots made her a natural choice for me to select when I got engaged. She was an absolute joy to be around when she photographed my wedding.

WOW all I can say is WOW!!! Hiring Manda as my wedding photographer was the absolute best decision I made for my wedding!!!

If you are looking for a photographer who will instantly make you (and your not photo-loving fiancé) feel completely at ease, who has the kindest heart and who will make your wedding look like an absolute dream you want Manda!

Manda was an absolute dream to work with! Capturing natural images of the joy and emotion on our wedding day was very important to us...
Manda excels at just that. 

 After looking at Manda's work and hearing story after story from others about how talented she is, we knew we had to have her capture our wedding. . She has the incredible ability to capture loving faces at just the right time and at just the right angle. She is thoughtful, courteous, and appreciates the value of a couple's wedding day.

She is incredibly creative and it shows through her work. We highly (highly) recommend Manda!!!!
