Engagement session // at Yards Park with beagle in tow!

Well, it’s been a few weeks since my last post.  We need to catch up! My super busy season is underway and off to a great start.

Today I am delighted to share a really fun engagement photo session from about a month ago.  On an early Sunday morning Holly and Michael, and their adorable little Beagle named Sprocket met up with me at The Yards Park next to the Nationals Baseball stadium (They are huge fans!).  We walked the dock, fetched sticks, and had a wonderful time! Here’s a peek…

Locals Only // Hyattsville, MD Engagement Session

Often I leave my business cards on bulletin boards at cafe’s. It’s not very often that I get a call from one that I have left.  Almost weekly I tack up my card over at my favorite neighborhood coffee shop, Vigilante. A few months ago Meghan and Marshall, who also enjoy Vigilante gave me a call. They saw my card, and they were in search of a wedding photographer! We met at guess where…. our favorite coffee shop!  We hit it off and the rest is history.

These two are getting hitched in Baltimore this fall, so we met up for engagement photos a few weeks ago, and we kept it local!

We started at sunrise in Magruder Park with the couples pup, Booker.  We ended the morning with a hot cup of coffee over at Vigilante.  We had a second meet up a few days later at their home.  M&M make homemade pasta on weekends, YUM.  We ended the evening over at Union Market where the couple enjoys visiting the Rappahannock Oyster Bar .

Here is a look at the highlights…

Sunrise Hike on the Billy Goat Trail // Great Falls Engagement

A few months ago I met with Meghan and Ryan and we chatted about their wedding and what they wanted to do for engagement photos.  I always like to have the engagement photos reflect the couples personalities and I love to include hobbies they enjoy together.  Meghan and Ryan didn’t even have to think about it, they both love to hike.  They suggested we have the photo session on the Billy Goat Trail at Great Falls. A lot of people like to hike this trail so we set out there before the sun and had the rocks to ourselves!  Here are some of the highlights…

A wild Trip out WEST // Recap

Hey There!

In mid March I had a photoshoot out in Los Angeles.  The trip lined up with my Husband and I’s first year wedding anniversary. So we made a big trip out of it.  I flew out to LA for my shoot and then we both met up the next weekend in Vegas! Here is a recap of our travels…

I flew into LA on March 9th to cover the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA.  Here is one of my favorite shots from the conference.

I had a free day to go explore and took my friends advice and spent the day in Long Beach.  Of course it rained all day, so I explored the Aquarium of the Pacific..

Around 6pm the rain cleared and a there was a beautiful sunset, I drove to the beach where I found this interesting car… or golf cart? Once I walked onto the beach I saw a few kite surfers, I had never seen kite surfing in real life, I was mezmorized!

 

The next day I flew to Las Vegas where I met Stephen (He flew from DC to meet me for our vacation.)

This was the only photo I took in Vegas with my real camera 🙂

After 3 nights in Vegas we rented a one way car and drove to the Hoover Damn, and on to the grand Canyon from there.

I think these girls took the day trip from vegas. You can’t really see it but there are posing with their selfie stick, on the edge of the canyon…

We spent the night at the Grand Canyon on the Hualapai Reservation.  This is a view of our cabins and the guests circling around the campfire.

The next morning we watched the sunrise and then got an early start on our drive to Joshua Tree, CA. Here’s a view from the middle of the Mohave Dessert. We also hopped on historic Rt. 66 for a few miles.

We spent the night in Joshua Tree and then headed to LA the next day.  We did the Santa Monica Pier at Sunset.

It might sound like we had a busy hectic trip with all the driving and flying but it really was relaxing. I got to recharge my batteries so to speak before the busy event and wedding season begins!

 

What’s the best trip you’ve been on recently?

2016 Wedding Season // Kick off!

Last Friday I kicked off my 2016 wedding season with Lili and Brian.  These two eloped in the morning and met me down by the White House after lunch for portraits.  We walked around Lafayette Park and then ventured into the Renwick Gallery.  After learning about these two and their interests I suggested a few locations and we decided that the Renwick’s current exhibitions would make the perfect backdrop.

These two both enjoy nature and the outdoors but, being early March we didn’t have too many options. Thankfully the Renwick encourages photography! We braved the crowds and came out with a nice set of portraits!

Here are a few highlights…

The Family Wedding // Recap

About a year and half ago my mother-in-law who was newly engaged to her long time partner asked me if I would photograph the wedding. I was honored, and after much consideration I decided that I could do it.  I knew that it was going to be a challenge, after all- it’s family and they deserve the best!

The wedding was held at the Colonel Blackinton in Attleboro, MA. It was a seasonably warm November day, I was thrilled to be able to take portraits outside! The wedding had about 30 guests and was jam packed with details and sentiment. Everyone played a roll in making the day come together. Here is a recap of the day…Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography  Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski PhotographyErika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography Erika Nizborski Photography  Erika Nizborski Photography       Erika Nizborski Photography

A year in Review // 2015

One of the first words that comes to mind when I think about the past year is : WOW!

What a year it has been! ENP had it’s best year yet, I got to work with so many amazing clients many of whom I won’t ever forget! I was just going through all of the photos I took over the past year and it’s hard to pick favorites but I think I’ve managed to come up with a decent recap of some of my best. So here it is, the ENP year in pictures for 2015! Enjoy.

                        

 

2015, thats a wrap! Happy New Year !!!

Pumpkins + Mums // Wedding Sneak Peek!

In honor of Thanksgiving which is just a day away, I wanted to share this Halloween Wedding I had the pleasure to document over at The Lodge at Little Seneca Creek.  Kristen and Daniel love the outdoors, so it only made sense that they bring some nature to their BIG DAY.  Their first look was down by the creek, the pumpkin and mum lined ceremony was over looking the beautiful fall skyline, and the reception was held in front of a grand hearth with a roaring fire.  Kristen and Daniel were surrounded by family and friends on their wedding day, several of the guest traveled great distances to attend, all the way from Peru! Here is a look….

Sneak Peek // Annapolis Farmhouse Wedding

Hello! This Thursday I’m traveling all the way back to 3 weeks ago when Dorji and Hyun-Soo tied the knot.  These two got married overlooking the Chesapeake Bay, it was breathtaking. Their venue was a 1920’s farmhouse  that is actually listed on the popular Air BNB website.  This was my first Air BNB wedding, and let me tell you, it is the way to go!

The wedding was a fusion of cultures. Dorji is Butonese and Hyun-Soo is Korean, together they celebrated with both traditions.  For the Reception Dorji changed into her American wedding dress and the couple danced the night away.  Guests sent them off with a festive sparkler exit!

The wedding was coordinated my Sonia of Clarity and Class, Hair and Makeup was done by Yesli of YesliHMUA.

Here is a Sneak Peek of the day…

              

Are you and your partner from two different cultural or religious backgrounds? If so, what are your plans or ideas on how to bring them together on your BIG DAY?

Fall Engagement With Kelly & Scott

Last week I met up with Kelly and Scott in Lexington Park, MD.  These two love the outdoors and  woodworking- among other arts & crafts.  They are currently planning their fall 2016 wedding and I will not be surprised if they start crafting up a significant portion of the details for the BIG DAY. We spent the afternoon sanding wood in the backyard for one of their many projects and then we took a stroll around Saint Mary’s Historic Village, a favorite place for Kelly to go running.  We had a beautiful sunset on a unseasonably warm fall day! Here are some of the highlights…
