Justin wrote “Lauren has shown me what true love really is and her heart has made me a better person just for knowing her and having her in my life. My world only works with her in it….”. Lauren wrote “I love Justin’s big heart. He is such a caring person and will do anything for those he cares about. It is tough to get in, but once you are there you will never want to leave.”. LOVE!
I wish I could share with you all everything they wrote for me about how they met, how he proposed, and just the love and life they share, because I know everyone would fall in love with Justin and Lauren. But I’m trying to keep this short and sweet and at least let them keep some of their privacy But their story is so sweet….from their first date when they rode around and looked at Christmas lights, in which they now joke about how “Justin took the Jewish girl to go look at Christmas lights”, to when he proposed on the beach in Ocean City with their new puppy….everything is full of romance and fun. And I couldn’t describe the love I’ve witnessed between them in any better two words. It was such a wonderful day as they got married at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club….Lauren never stopped smiling and Justin…well….Justin never stops making faces and I loved it. You’ll see that soon
Lauren and Justin…..I truly do love you guys as a couple and am so happy I got to be the one to be there for your day. I hope these photos can show even a fraction of the love and happiness that exudes from you two. You guys just make me smile
And I have to give a shoutout to my second shooter Jennifer Smutek…..my calm half for the day…..you rocked. Period

Any bride with a starfish in her hair has automatically won me over.
I’m obsessed with this photo of Justin that Jennifer grabbed as Lauren was walking down toward him for their first look. Could anyone look any happier and just full of joy and excitement…..thankful for this beautiful day of making her his wife???
Justin kept a photo of his Pop in his jacket pocket.
A little behind-the-scenes shot to show the beginning of the many faces of Justin….
And more faces…..
Ha! I mean seriously…..love them!
Lauren, you are so gorgeous….
So…..let’s talk about this. The best cake cutting I’ve ever seen. Somehow, despite the fact that Lauren and Justin have been to numerous weddings this summer, Justin apparently is still unaware of how a cake cutting is supposed to go. Here poor sweet Lauren is going to feed some cake to Justin, as he is supposed
to feed some cake to her. Nope. Cuts the cake and then just feeds himself, unaware that anything is wrong with that until Lauren and everyone else starts laughing and yelling at him. Here’s the whole progression, guilty face and all.
