Rachel & Jake Dulany's Overlook

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

This summer has just gotten even more amazing with Rachel and Jake's wedding at Dulany's Overlook. You can't ask for a more beautiful venue than Dulany's Overlook for ANY wedding season. It's really a perfect location, with a stunning view and so many photo spots. Honestly, I feel like whenever we return, there's a new place to discover and photograph! One things for sure: Rachel and Jake chose an amazing venue to kick off this next chapter of their life. We pretty much fell in love with Rachel and Jake from our first phone call. It was evident right from the beginning that they are calm, go-getters, and incredibly sweet. They have a fabulous relationship that we got to see at their engagement shoot. Then, on the wedding day, we got to experience and hear from the people that they hold near and dear to them. There was nothing but love for Jake and Rachel. From their Ketubah that was hand painted by Jake's mom, to their Rabbis who were all close friends, every piece of the day was filled with such deep appreciation and heart.  It's been an absolute joy getting to know Rachel and Jake. Reliving all of the moments from their wedding has been a major "WOW" time. My favorite moment? When the Captain Cookie truck pulled up immediately following our sunset photos. I've never seen a longer line form so quickly for ice cream sandwiches! Of course the ice cream sandwiches weren't my ONLY...

Stephanie & Marko's Rocklands Farm Wedding

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

Summer is here and the weddings are STUNNING! We cannot contain our excitement over Stephanie and Marko's Rocklands Farm wedding! The weather was sheer perfection, and these two were a treat to hang out with!  One of our favorite moments from Stephanie and Marko's day was, hands down, their first look. I think it must be the anticipation that makes every first look unique and fun. There's the waiting, the nerves, the reveal, and finally the moment you get to see each other. It's a rush of emotions at that very moment that make a first look so special. The second that Marko saw Stephanie, the smile on his face was ginourmous. He was so giddy and excited, and we couldn't help but have this reaction affect us similarly. We cannot thank these two enough for allowing us to capture their long awaited day. These two have been together for 8 years, and it was mentioned on more than one occasion how their union was a long time coming. We feel so honored to have been their photographers. They've already been building a spectacular life together, and we hope this latest chapter is their best one yet! Cheers to Marko and Stephanie!  Enjoy their Rocklands Farms wedding!

Becca & Will's Baltimore City Wedding

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

So we've been waiting for Becca and Will's wedding for what feels like forever. We knew it was going to have all of our favorite things: Will and Becca, Baltimore City, and cotton candy. Is there anything more you actually need? Everything from their ceremony at St. Joseph's Monastery Parish, a church that is extremely special to Becca, to their intimate reception at La Cuchara was fantastic. There was so much friendship and love. Honestly, their day could be the poster for wedding happiness. From our first meeting with Will and Becca, we had a feeling their day would be spectacular. We chatted about food, New York, and....Dungeons and Dragons. I would say the second Will asked us about D&D is the moment we realized these two were going to be a very special couple to us. Since our initial meeting, we have all become for real friends. Sounds weird to say "for real" but our hope with all of our couples is that we legitimately get the chance to hang out and have fun outside of "business". Will and Becca have shown us it can happen, and that come wedding time, we are friends watching friends get married instead of photographer and client. AND we even have the honor of being Becca's first D&D group :P.  Will and Becca have a very special relationship. They complete each other in a way that people don't often get to see. Both of them...

Tony & Rafaela's Springfield Manor Wedding

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

So when the weather says all day rain, what that means in Maryland is that there is a 10% chance of rain for exactly 2 hours. Tony and Rafaela's day will forever be a memorable one. From the tornado watch, to Tony's face FULLY going into the cake, it is a day that we will not forget. Pulling up to the venue, Springfield Manor, with a light drizzle and a light breeze, we knew it was going to be a great wedding. Regardless of what the weather said, we knew the day would be unique.  We've known Tony and his family for almost 5 years now. His sister, Christina, found us in 2014, and ever since that first email in March, we have been welcomed into such a miraculous family. We adore them so much, and they feel so much like our own family. So when Tony reached out about photographing his wedding. Oh my goodness, I started crying happy tears over JUST the engagement! Once I got myself together, I knew there was nothing in this world that would keep Shawn and I from Tony and Rafaela's wedding day. What a completely spectacular day. Like I mentioned, it was supposed to rain the entire day, but that didn't end up happening. About 30 minutes before the ceremony, the rain stopped and then sun peeked out for a little bit. Everything Tony and Rafaela had been dreaming of for their wedding went off without a hitch! They even got...

Nautical Love Wedding at Renditions Golf in Maryland

Emily & Jake

This wedding season is off to an amazing start! On Saturday we got to party it up with Emily and Jake at their BEAUTIFUL wedding at Our Lady of the Fields and Renditions Golf Course. Both spots were absolutely breathtaking and I don't think the day could have been any better.  One of the greatest things about these two is their story. Emily and Jake have known each other since kindergarten, they dated in high school, but went to different colleges and lost touch. However, after 10 years later, they connected at their family church and reignited that spark. Their relationship just gives me so many chills over how chance encounters can impact life <3. A HUGE part of Emily and Jake's day was dedicated to their family. From the church they were married in, to the Polish wedding traditions. Everything had a meaning and purpose. They even had music that allowed both of them a moment to shine with their friends. For Jake, there was "Boys Are Back In Town" that he crowded with his friends to sing along with. And for Emily it was "Girls Just Want to Have Fun", which is obviously the only choice possible! Emily and Jake, thank you so much for allowing us to capture your day! It has been such a treat getting to know you two, and we hope you two are having a blast on your honeymoon. Enjoy that sun! Enjoy their Renditions Golf Wedding! &...

Main Street Ballroom Spring-y Green Wedding

Emily & Matt

What a way to kick off the wedding season! We could not have asked for a better day than Emily and Matt's wedding at Main Street Ballroom in Ellicott City, Maryland! Seriously, every single heart emoji you could think of is exactly what I'm feeling right now! Before diving into the photos, I just want to say that Emily and Matt are amazingly sweet. I totally relate to their silliness and humor! Reflecting over their questionnaire, I couldn't help but tear up over how in-sync they are. I hung on strong for most of the questions, but then Matt wrote: "I know I’m a better Matt when I get to be around Emmy", and I lost it. Ugly tears all over the place. I love a couple where you can read one sentence and just know they are meant for each other. The time leading up to the wedding day only reinforced that feeling. This wasn't the easiest of week for Emily. She was hit with a medical emergency and was out of planning for a short time. In those moments, Matt really helped her a ton to not only feel better, but to remain stress-free. On the wedding day, he constantly was making sure that Emily had everything she needed and was able to relax as much as possible. Even with the hiccup early in the week, that would not stop the excitement and anticipation of the wedding day, though! We cannot say congratulations to Emily and...

The Manor House at Commonwealth Magical Wedding

Andy & Arthur

I can't think of a better way to end the year than with Andy and Arthur's wedding at The Manor House at Commonwealth. It was honestly such a perfect day. Now, it did look like it was going to rain, but that had no impact on the calm and happy mood.  Weddings are absolutely magical to me. I use the word magic to describe weddings 99% of the time because I'm obsessed with the concept. Magic doesn't have to be sparks flying from a wand, or gross ingredients mixed in a cauldron. It can be a feeling. A feeling that leaves your stomach doing flips and ready to do everything. It's exactly what I was feeling the second we saw Andy on Saturday.  Even more exciting? We got to experiment with a new type of wedding portraits. Since both Andy and Arthur weren't feeling a First Look, but wanted photos at the Manor House in the daylight, we tried something else! We've dubbed it the "Save the Surprise" portraits because it has all of the fun of regular portraits, but the groom never sees the bride! Yup, Arthur kept his eyes either closed, or in a different direction from Andy for their first set of portraits. We got to wander around the Manor House with the last bit of daylight AND have Arthur surprised when he saw Andy coming down the aisle. Legitimately Hannah Montana-ing with the best of both worlds.  Ohh, it was such...

Winter Romance at Ceresville Mansion Wedding

Michelle & Arby

I am in love with Michelle and Arby's wedding! Not only did half of it take place at the gorgeous Ceresville Mansion, but it was a day full of so much heart. Yes, of course, weddings are supposed to have a lot of love involved, but Michelle and Arby are different. They are exceptionally calming individuals with such an incredible warmth to them.  To be honest, I knew these two were going to be a dream when I read what Arby had to say about Michelle. His words to describe when he knew Michelle was THE ONE are truly poetic. It was one of those moments where it just kinda hits you like a ton of bricks, out of the blue. We were walking in Baker Park on a beautiful summer afternoon. I remember looking at her, seeing the soft glow of sunshine light up her face and hair in a way I hadn't seen before, and realizing just how lucky I was to have her in my life. At that point everything that was nebulous about my future, about who I was supposed to be and be with, crystallized and became clear. That day I saw her in a different light, both figuratively and literally, and she's been my dream girl ever since! CHILLS, right?! If that doesn't tell you that these two are magic, I don't know what will. Every element of their day was absolutely beautiful. Their ceremony at St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church, which was...

Chic Love at Mt. Washington Mill Dye House Wedding

Leni & Danny

We have a handful of venues that are our favorites, and Mt. Washington Mill Dye House is one of those places. Every single wedding that takes place at the Dye House is always perfection! I don't know what is about this magical location, but it just brings out the beauty in everything. Coupling that with Leni and Danny's fully realized vision by Celebrations, LLC, the day was elevated more.  There are not enough adjectives in the world to describe our feelings over witnessing Leni and Danny's day. Start to finish, it was full of love, romance, and family. The sense of togetherness was not only present within Leni and Danny's relationship, but also throughout their family and friends. They created a day that was so connected, and welcoming. Honestly, the second we walked into the bridal suite, we didn't just feel like photographers, we felt like friends.  Leni and Danny have this aura around them that is so inviting. They are completely lovely, and when they get to giggling together it's THE sweetest thing. It's gonna sound real creepy, but I adore watching them interact with each other. They are always showing their affection for one another, either in a light back touch, or holding hands. Even the way they look at each other shows the spark of their connection. It's a romance for the ages, and I feel so lucky to see! It only makes sense that the romance had a fairytale wedding day to match. Mt...
