Tiffanee & Marcus are an über-cool couple, and today, they prove it. Tiffanee is a friend from high school, and when she came to meet with us for a consult, decided our house would be perfect for their shoot! We added in Browns Branch park and threw down for some fun mini-hike photos on the trail!
To the Leafo Fan-o, be sure to keep an eye out for their wedding, we should be posting about that one soon!
Liz & Tyler’s Engagement
Meet Elizabeth & Tyler, an adorable couple who love spending time outdoors and making each other laugh. They’ve been together since high school, so we decided to go with a little “high school sweetheart” theme for their autumn engagement session. Many thanks to the staff at Milford High for letting us roam the halls!
Lots of fun shots from the football field, but you’ll have to wait for the Save the Dates to see those!
They bought each other little Liz & Tyler Milford bears one year…so cute!
After the MHS session, we stopped at a few spots downtown to catch some sun and scout out autumn leaves.
Liz & Tyler, we had a blast shooting with you guys. You are definitely an awesome pair!
Stay tuned for their seriously cool Save-the-Dates & photos from their upcoming wedding on 9/10/11!
Brett & Tori
Remember Brett and Tori from our engagement session earlier this summer? Well, their big day finally arrived! They had a gorgeous wedding ceremony and reception catered by Blue Moon in the new building at Nassau Valley Vineyards. The theme was “Around the World,” and everyone partied like rock stars!
The girls began their pampering, primping, and prepping at Bad Hair Day? It’s one of the most luxurious, fun salons in Rehoboth Beach!
Tori spent the morning reciting her vows, aside from a quick catnap under the dryer.
The final countdown…
Dancing in the limo — Tori loves her jams!
For the record, Tori and Brett remembered their vows perfectly!
Brett had been saving that bottle of wine for their wedding day, so after the ceremony, we went into the vineyard groves for a romantic toast.
The Best Man’s speech was memorable, to say the least. Nice job, D.Y.!
Cutting their gorgeous cake.
Garter time…come hither, Brett!
Party time! The wedding had an “Around the World” theme, and every table had decor from a different country. These decorations made fabulous photo props as the evening progressed!
Tori and Brett, thanks so much for inviting us to be your wedding photographers! Your ceremony was stunning and we had an awesome time partying with you at the reception. Enjoy your honeymoon!

One of the fun things about photography is being able to participate in so many cool events. Recently, the folks at Sunnybrae Mansion in Milford, Delaware opened their doors to help the Children’s Miracle Network. Our current Miss Delaware, Kayla Martell, and her family teamed up with former Mrs. Delaware International, Karen McColley to host a fundraiser on Monday night. “Walking for a Miracle” was an absolute success, as local families came out to enjoy a stroll on the beautiful property at Sunnybrae and donate to a worthy cause.
Congratulations on a wonderful turnout, and many thanks to everyone who participated in the event!
Meet Tori and Brett. Longtime sweethearts, these guys have been friends since their high school days, and everyone has been predicting their friendship would turn into love since Day One! They have been an adorable couple for years now, growing together, and now their family is growing, too! We’re so excited to share the newest addition to the Hamstead clan, Baby Gabbie!
Brett & Tori are the perfect combination of good taste and down-to-earth attitudes. With a new baby in the house, it can be tough to find time for one’s own interests, so Brett & Tori came up with a great idea for a photo shoot location — a fun game of golf at Shawnee Country Club in Milford, Delaware. The beautiful gardens and greens made our job easy, and little Gabbie was able to hang out and explore while Mommy & Daddy played a few rounds! (Did I mention that this child is an absolute doll? Such an easygoing little chickadee!)
Brett & Tori, thank you so much for sharing your family with us! We can’t wait to see you again for more fun photography in September as we celebrate your marriage at Nassau Valley Vineyards in Lewes!
Special thanks also go out to Butch & Kathy Hamstead for being a great Mom-mom & Pop-pop and watching Gabbie during the photo shoot! 🙂
Hi guys! We are super excited to share a story that hits us close to home: Milford, Delaware. I was born & raised here, and after Leif and I were married, we moved back here to buy our first house & start our photography business. Lately, the amazing ladies over at Downtown, Milford, Inc. have been working to revitalize the downtown area of our historic community. They are a nonprofit agency, so suffice it to say there have been many challenges in raising awareness with such limited funding.
Enter National Trust for Historic Preservation’s “This Place Matters” competition. Basically, we get one chance to enter a single photo of our town & show a sign saying “This Place Matters.” Then, people all over the country can vote for their favorite place & winner takes all. The grand prize? 25,000 crisp green dollar bills to spend toward revitalizing our downtown area!
We were thrilled to have the opportunity to volunteer our time & shoot the photo for the contest, and Downtown Milford, Inc. rallied over a hundred people together for the shoot! Without further ado, here is the photo they entered along with a very heartfelt essay about our town & the link to vote for Milford because THIS PLACE MATTERS!!!
Why do we matter?? Read what they submitted with the photo!!
Downtown Milford, Delaware
We are a community born of the river. It is the mill at the crossing of the Mispillion that formed our name. This river was home to two centuries of shipbuilding that made us a center of maritime industry. This river remains our link to the vital waters of this great peninsula.
Though the nature of the river has changed, it is no less important to our lives. It bisects our downtown, makes us the heart of two counties, and is the centerpiece of a rebirth centered on recreation, the arts, and community.
Our downtown is the heart of our creative transformation. Our galleries, shops, and performance spaces are gathering places for people from all walks of life. Our events allow us to celebrate the place we call home.
We remain a center of commerce for a rural community, an escape from the pressures of urban life, and a community centered on family. We are the kind of place where a children’s class inspires leaders, a landscape inspires artists, and a history inspires vision.
We are Milford, Delaware.
River Town. Art Town. Home Town.
Fingers are crossed! And yes, the photo will be available for purchase after September 15th to help benefit Downtown Milford, Inc. Go Milford!!
