Sunny Memorial Day Wedding Chesapeake Bay Beach Club | Annapolis Wedding Photographer | Sarah & Drew

Updated: Aug 27

Since the unofficial start to Summer has arrived and this is my first Memorial Day Weekend as a full-time Louisiana resident I started to reflect back on all of those weekends spent driving across the Bay Bridge heading to Ocean City and my mind started to wander to one of my favorite weekends spent shooting Memorial Day weekend at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club for Sarah & Drews wedding day.


Drew is a Marine and there was literally no better weekend for him and Sarah to tie the knot. The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club is known for their world class service, beautiful beach settings, incredible food and views of the bay like nowhere else. There was no other choice but the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club for this day!


The weather way absolutely perfect and we were all graced with a vibrant burins orange sunset over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. This couple, with their family and friends danced, parties and celebrated the night away. An incredible journey was unfolding for this couple and I have the most wonderful memories care of Sarah, Drew and all of the shenanigans that went down at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club.


Photography by Tracie is based out of New Orleans, Louisiana and Baltimore, Maryland and is always ready for the next adventure. I have traveled and worked all over the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. My approach to photography is very non-posed focusing on relationships, not a static 20 poses, and most importantly putting YOU first!

My goal is to create moments that are not in existence for you yet. I crave to create connections with my couples as clients AND as friends. As we embark on this wild ride to “I Do”, WE are going to live our lives out loud showing all the vibrancy joy, and many shades of colorful love you share with the world.

I travel at minimum monthly for weddings, portrait work and with digital creators all around the US and internationally. So, if your dream wedding day is romantic, colorful, offbeat, on a farm, in the city, at a manor, at the bottom of a canyon or on a glacier, I am ready to rock out with you and pour you a glass of champagne to celebrate these magical moments with you. To get the lowdown on my upcoming travel dates or when I’ll be in a town near you, drop me a message here to set up your personalized travel portrait/elopement/engagement session with me!






From Elopements in New Orleans, along the Gulf Coast or back East in Maryland to Indian Weddings that span three days, I serve both areas and offer collections for all occasions. My style is bright, vibrant capturing all the Joy & Love on your wedding day!


8 hour Wedding Collections start at $2500 and come with a complimentary Engagement Session.
