Linganore Winery Best Friends Photoshoot

Photographer in Frederick MD

First off, I’ve wanted to photograph a session at Linganore Winery for a WHILE. I’ve photographed events there before, but not portrait sessions, so this was a treat. The second bucket list item was a best friends photoshoot! 

Jilian and Supriya met during the summer of 2006 at University of Florida. They’ve been best friends ever since then, and they are coming up on their 15th friendiversary! For that momentous occasion, they decided on a romantic weekend getaway for wine tours and cider tastings. I was so happy they found me when looking for a photographer in Frederick MD. 

They’d been thinking through different best friends photoshoot ideas, and the winery seemed a perfect mixture of things they love to do together. 

Jilian describes Supriya as hilarious, wild, and emotional. Supriya describes Jilian as funny, sassy, nurturing. Jilian now lives in Florida with her husband and daughter, while Supriya is a nurse here in Maryland. Needless to say, it’s been a crazy and tough year for Supriya. I’m so happy I could capture this time for them!

I’ve noticed this too with my friends that the special bonds we formed as adolescents (or young adults) just stick. You can move away, not talk for 6 months, get swept up in life, etc. But the moment you see one another, you remember what drew you to each other in the first place. I’m grateful every single day for people I know will be around until we aren’t. 

Linganore Winery

Linganore wine cellars is such a perfect backdrop for weddings, family and best friends photoshoots alike. The vineyard, of course, but the rolling hills and expansive sky just beckons you to embrace it. They’ve got plenty of outdoor seating, and I must say that they have done a tremendous job of keeping folks safely celebrating during the pandemic.

"Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! Every single picture we got back was nothing short of perfect. Our families and friends were amazed at how great our photos turned out as well as the volume of photos we received. She made sure to capture moments that were special to us on our wedding day, as well as make time to get all of the family photos we wanted. Something that I found to be really helpful was how organized Sarah was. She sent us questionnaires to get to know us and even created a day of timeline so my partner and I, and our families and bridal parties, would know what to expect and when formal photos would be taken. Her attention to detail and caring nature ensured that our photos reflected not only our wedding day but our personalities as well. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work. She is a fantastic photographer and a great person to work with.

"...Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. She spent ample time talking with me about my vision of the day, provided a detailed itinerary to help me stay organized, and was a listening ear when I needed practical wedding advice. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine nature helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition, we are delighted with Sarah’s technical qualities as a photographer - her sense of mise-en-scène, attention to detail, and her remarkable ability to capture poignant and symbolic moments in an inter-cultural, inter-racial, pandemic wedding."

"Beyond being a good photographer, Sarah truly works to make her clients feel comfortable and special during her sessions. She is incredibly personable and there were never any awkward, empty moments during our session! My fiancee and I were truly in the moment and Sarah allowed us to have candid, special moments together while she captured them for us to remember forever...Our day was stress-free thanks to her detailed planning...I absolutely recommend Sarah for anyone and everyone. We are forever thankful for her openness and hard work."

"Sarah creates a fun, creative, and safe environment that brings out the very best you to photograph. I had a great time in my headshot session with her and I ended up with beautiful photos (that actually look like me) I would be proud to bring into any audition room. 10/10 would recommend!"
