Sam and Brian’s wedding on Saturday at the beautiful Crown Rose Estate in Knoxville, Maryland was everything a spring wedding should be! Although it rained, you’d never know it because these two were full of light and love. After many years together, the two of them have finally tied the knot and I’m so glad I got to be a part of it! I’m so excited to be sharing a first look at their wedding day!


Since it was raining, the ceremony and reception were both held in the beautiful barn on the property at Crown Rose Estate. The barn was filled with gorgeous white, red and pink flowers creating a stunning altar for the two to be wed in front of. Family and friends filled the day, helping get everything set up just right for Sam & Brian! The venue was perfect – what a great spot to get married, without a doubt. I had the chance to chat with the owner and I’m so happy I did. 


I can’t get over how beautiful Sam looks!! Isn’t she seriously the most stunning bride you’ve ever seen?! The rain didn’t damper her spirit at all! I promise you – no matter what, rain on your wedding day WILL work out and it will still always be beautiful – I think Sam knew that and I’m so thankful she trusted me to take her outside on the edge of the barn for these images. I absolutely love them! 



The first look at his bride… I get choked up just looking at it! These two are SERIOUSLY made for each other!



The rain barely broke in time for the formal portraits but we snuck away to get some of the gorgeous green gardens and landscape in a few of their portraits!





Sam and Brian, I wish you a lifetime of happiness together. I’m so very honored that you asked me to be a part of your wedding day and I cannot wait for you to see all of the images of your big day! Being able to witness the love you two share was probably the most beautiful part of your wedding day – I hope you know how special what you have is. I look forward to watching you grow together, deeper in love as you start your new journey! Congratulations again!!!

"How lucky we were to win a session with her in a silent auction. She was so calm and flexible with my family, grandparent, husband, myself, 3 year old and 16 month old. She really captured our family's personality in all her photos. We can't wait to use her again! Thanks Kristina!"

-Claire Bolek

"I really enjoyed working with Kristina throughout this process. Graduating from college is something that only happens once, and I believe that there is no one better that I could have asked to take such personal pictures and capture such personal memories."
