So apparently I really stink at blogging…. since my last post was bait 10 months ago.  I promise Andrea Burns Photography is alive and well- and I’ve shot lots- just haven’t had the time to blog.

Featured below was a stunning November wedding- that was beautifully intimate.  The Bride & Groom choose a stunning locale- The Annapolis Wedding Chapel.  The day couldn’t have been prettier or nicer.  The couple couldn’t have been more loving and charming.  I really did have a blast with this one!

Thank you for choosing me to document such a beautiful occasion!

It was a damp, cold, blustery day in October, when a beautiful schoolteacher married her longtime sweetheart at a family home in the Chestertown/ Church Hill area of the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Every touch was exquisite, and everyone was so excited that these two were tying the knot.  I love working with couples who treat me like I’m one of the family- and these two were no exception– beautiful inside and out!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Hicks!  Thank you for choosing Andrea Burns Photography!

I had a fantastic time helping Amanda of Exposed Branches Photography photograph this GORGEOUS wedding a couple of months ago.  Weddings at the Tidewater Inn in Easton are always jaw-dropping lovely.  Maryland residents should recognize the orange and purple theme happening here…. ;)  CONGRATS Again!!

Once upon a time on June 1st, 2013– a girl finally got to marry her prince charming. Stephanie and Jay have been happily together for a long time- they wanted to make *everything* just right for their sacred day.  And what a day it was!  It was gloriously beautiful- and Stephanie and Jay tied the knot with all of their dearest friends and family in attendance.  They got married at the beautiful United Methodist Church in Chestertown, MD,  and then moved to the Moose Lodge for their reception.

This final picture above- is so special to them. Taken on the grounds of their Reception- See that tiny white building off in the distance? Their first home together. Everyone say…. “awwwwww!”  Thanks Mr. & Mrs. J for such a great time!

Garrett & Jillian’s Silver Swan Bayside wedding was gorgeous in every WINDY way. The details were immaculate, the bride absolutely stunning, the groom was dashing… their venue was breathtaking. Mother Nature wanted to also show up and give the gift of her strong breezes that day. But it didn’t stop Garrett & Jillian from stepping into life together as husband as wife.

I had the privilege to shoot with Brittany from Dunks Photo again several weeks back.  This was the B Wedding at the Silver Swan Bayside on Kent Island, Maryland.  It was such a gorgeous and intimate setting.  The sunsets on the Eastern Shore Chesapeake Bay are just to die for.  This wedding was so sweet, in the fact that the groom was so sweetly emotional that he was marrying his beautiful bride.  I love when a man can bravely shed tears in front of his buddies!  On to the lovely wedding…..

CONGRATS C & E! Many blessings in your new life together!

several weeks ago I had the pleasure to help my friend Brittany out.  She’s the very talented photographer of Dunks Photo, and an awesome-fun Boxer mommy.  ;) .  We went to High School together eons ago, and we’ve both moved back to The Shore within the last year.  Together we shot the McGrath wedding in Annapolis, MD, at the beautiful Loews Hotel.  Brittany & Chris were a fun couple with awesome friends…. hadn’t seen a party like that in a long time!  Be sure to check out the “Livin’ On a Prayer” rock-out song below….

Many congratulations & Blessings Brittany & Chris!

Last November J & M got married on a beautiful day at The Royal Oaks Inn on the Eastern Shore.  It was intimate, classy, and just all around a fun and beautiful time!  The couple got married on a dock over the water, and then we headed indoors for the festivities.  CONGRATULATIONS J & M!

It was a warm August day when L & P wed in a beautiful ceremony. Just a few days prior had been a terrible storm, and everyone was fretting about the weather… that is, except the bride herself! The old stone church was gorgeous and perfect, as was the bride, groom, and their three flower girls in attendance. I just adored the Bride’s dress… which she had affectionately named “Lucy.” The reception was held at a local winery, and was relaxed and laid back. I couldn’t have asked for a better time!

Many congrats and blessings L & P!

Sixty years ago two of the most beautiful people in my life, met and married and started a long lasting legacy**.  My grandparents “Granny & Goodaddy.”  They met at Toccoa Falls College in the late 1940′s.  They courted, and on a choir trip, my Gooddaddy asked Granny to marry him.

Two daughters (plus spouses), five grandchildren (and three spouses), and four great-grandchildren later, we all gathered in North Carolina to celebrate sixty years of wedded bliss.  I love how they love each other.  They tease each other, he calls her his “Sweet Baboo.”  They hold hands, they pray together.

Happy 60th Anniversary to the sweetest and gentlest people I know and cherish.  I love you both so much.
