Chesapeake Bay Beach Club-Wedding-Annapolis-Kent Island-Maryland-Fine Art-Photo_0006

While attending the Intrigued Experience at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club… I (Manda Weaver), a photographer in a sea of florists, was incredibly inspired by the exquisite and diverse floral design taking place all around me. Honestly just being in a room filled with thousands of roses, peonies, and sprigs of eucalyptus was enough to set me spinning. But as I watched these incredible ladies working at their craft, I was bursting to capture the beauty around me… So, I called/texted/emailed a few of my local vendor friends about my crazy idea.

At first we gave ourselves a 48 hour window to pull it all together, but then we noticed that the weather was promising to deliver rain. And we wanted to capture this shoot in the light of an Eastern Shore bayside sunset. So we made the decision to  shoot during our afternoon break the next day.

Within 24 hours this fresh and dreamy spring inspiration shoot was planned because of the amazing community of creatives I am a part of. I am extremely thankful especially for Anastasiia our model, and Flavia from Annapolis Formal. Those ladies poured themselves into this shoot. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart!!!

When everything finally came together we only had about 30 minutes to shoot, and it was chilly, but… It was everything I had hoped for and more.

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!!!!

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!!!!
