Bay Bridge Marina Engagement || Janna & Sam

engagement

Annapolis-Maryland-Bay Bridge Marina & Yacht Club-Engagement-Eastern Shore-Photo_0007

Janna, Sam, and Khali (their mini Australian Shepherd) and I met for the very first time yesterday at their dreamy Bay Bridge Marina and Yacht Club engagement shoot… But even before meeting them in person, I knew they were a perfect Manda Weaver couple. When chatting with Janna on the phone her confidence in who they are, where they are going, and dedication to a lifetime of loving Sam just spilled out of her.

So, it is was no surprise to me that everything about the sessions was wonderful. Not only are Janna and Sam incredibly joyful, kind and gorgeous but they are also genuinely in love with each other. Which made capturing their romance absolutely¬†inspiring and fun. I can’t believe I get to do it again in just a few months at their Annapolis Maritime Museum Wedding!

From the bride-to-be

Sam and I met through a friend in our hometown (Baltimore). We have been together for 4 and 1/2 years. After one year of dating, we decided that Sam should pursue a Masters degree in New Orleans. Those two years of long distance flew by! He moved back to the area after graduation and we have been together ever since. We are truly best friends and feel as though we are married already, but we cannot wait to make it official!!

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 fianc√©) 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!!!!

We LOVED having Manda as our photographer. Her calm, encouraging, and sweet disposition helped us feel at ease in front of the camera. Moreover, she is incredibly talented and catches the most beautiful moments. She is incredibly creative and it shows through her work. We highly (highly) recommend Manda!!!!
