Mary Claire & Ryan Folly Beach

Wedding Photographers in Charleston

You know that feeling when something is happening exactly how it is supposed to? When Mary Claire and Ryan emailed me asking if it was possible for us to travel down to Folly Beach to photograph their wedding, I got that feeling. Yes, their Baltimore based wedding last year did have to be postponed due to COVID. However, the second I read their plan for having us come to South Carolina, I got this overwhelming feeling that THIS was how their day was always supposed to be. Every single person that was there to witness Mary Claire and Ryan's marriage helped in making the day flawless. Mary Claire's mom was sewing and ironing, her brothers (and Ryan) were setting up the ceremony space, and Ryan's family came in ready to help get food going. Each and every guest's mission was for the day to go off without a hitch and they more than succeeded. They created a space that was peaceful and filled with love for Mary Claire and Ryan, and who doesn't want to start their marriage surrounded by that?! Mary Claire & Ryan - first of all, thank you for even letting us in on your "crazy idea". We are so incredibly happy for you two! I know that the devastating speed bump that is COVID made it feel impossible for your wedding vision to come to life, but you two did it and you did it super well! Your day was perfect, and we...

Erica & Aaron The Winslow

Wedding Photographers in Baltimore

I don't think that it can get any better than Erica and Aaron's industrial chic wedding day. Their day at The Winslow in Baltimore, Maryland is one that will stick with me for forever. Seriously, everything from the vows (when Aaron cried), to the speeches (when Erica cried) were sheer perfection. These two truly created a magical, romantic world within The Winslow that I still cannot believe we were lucky enough to witness. When we met up with these two for their engagement session last year, we instantly became big fans of theirs. They are both so loving and caring, and it is completely obvious by the people they surround themselves with how wonderful they are. When you have so many people showing your relationship such incredible love, well, you know your marriage is going to be stellar. By the end of the day we felt so much connection to them, and we hope that their wedding was just the beginning of our friendship! Congratulations, Erica and Aaron! Your marriage, much like your wedding day, is going to be absolutely fantastic. You two are such wonderful individuals and together you can take over the world! Thank you both so much for allowing us to be a small part of the day, and capture all the laughs, tears, and love! Some of the highlights from the day! Aaron's ring was his late father's wedding band. Their officiant was Erica's uncle! We love when family is involved in the major parts of...

Christina & Kevin Antrim 1844

Wedding Photographers in Taneytown

Dusting off the ol' blog to bring you Christina and Kevin's GORGEOUS wedding at Antrim 1844 in Taneytown, Maryland. This was our first big wedding of 2021... the first one that truly felt normal after the year of COVID, and it couldn't have been a better day! After their big wedding turned into a "minimony" last year, their day this year was an opportunity to renew their vows and have the big celebration with all their friends and family. The day was filled with so much happiness, love, and DANCING. Seriously, I don't think we've seen a dance floor that full and with SO much energy in a long time. It was incredible to witness, and we are so happy that we got to capture it! Christina and Kevin, thank you so much for allowing us to be at your wedding celebration. You two are so wonderful, and even though the wait was probably VERY long - you did it! And with incredible style <3.  Some fun moments from the day! Kevin & Christina are high school sweethearts and met on the dance floor at homecoming! Making the dance floor a very important place for them :P. Christina choreographed her and Kevin's first dance. They received a standing ovation after that dance! Christina's something old was a beautiful gold ring from her grandmother. Kevin & Christina's grandmothers served as their flower ladies!  Christina's cousin, Faith, baked THE most beautiful cake we've ever seen...

How COVID-19 will change your wedding

Maryland Photographer

Now that the state of Maryland is starting to reopen from COVID-19, I wanted to open a conversation about our business moving forward. Obviously, there is new information coming out weekly of how businesses can get back to "normal", but our normal, may not be normal for the next business. This pandemic has changed the way we think about health and safety. By laying this out, we hope it encourages our couples, current and future, to start a dialog with us. We know this is stressful, but we also know everyone wants to be smart and informed. Should weddings be considered "large gatherings"? I know that weddings are, by definition, considered a large gathering. It's important to point out that they are different from other sorts of events in that group. At a lot of large gatherings that would include over 100 people, there's not the focus on just two people. At community gatherings, festivals, or conferences, there's a natural sense of distancing that can take place as people stick to their own group. There's not a pull to be close to two particular individuals, or the strong feeling of uniting and reuniting of families.  During a wedding, no one wants to be distanced from the wedding couple. They want to express their congratulations, hug, kiss, dance with them. The wedding couple is a celebrity that EVERYONE in attendance of their day wants to get close to. It may sound dramatic, but at this moment that's...

Haley & Brandon Hebron House

Wedding Photographers in Ellicott City

So weddings are definitely interesting right now. Smaller guests list, social distancing, and masks all make for a different kind of day. Just because it's different, though, doesn't mean it's not incredibly special. If anything, now, more than ever, weddings are even more sentimental. There's not the same feeling of rushing or stress, it's all based in a closeness that, all weddings of course have, but that closeness is much more visible today. Haley and Brandon's wedding at the Historic Hebron House was filled with so much incredible emotion. This was a day to celebrate them and their bond, which is honestly sometimes easy to forget when all of the other aspects of a wedding day take over. One of the coolest things about Haley and Brandon's wedding is that they had SIX officiants. Yes. Six officiants. Their closest friends lead them and the congregation through prayer, the vows, and blessing of marriage. Each friend that spoke and oversaw the day made it that much more special and personal. I now feel like all couples should have their friends officiate their wedding, haha. That might be a tall ask, but seriously, what people know you and your relationship better than the company that you keep and genuinely interact with? This couldn't have been a more perfect day. Truly! Congratulations, Haley and Brandon! It was an honor to be your wedding day photographers. Thank you both for allowing us to capture such a gorgeous time in your lives. We wish you...

Sam & Stefan St. Mark Church

Wedding Photographers in Catonsville

After 4 months of not shooting weddings, WE ARE BACK! I have many things I want to say about quarantine, business, and photography, but I'm saving it for a different post. This post is ALL about Sam and Stefan and their beautiful wedding ceremony at St. Mark Church in Catonsville! Sam and Stefan were originally supposed to exchange vows on April 24th; however, a little thing named COVID-19 threw everything out of wack. Instead, June 7th became their official wedding anniversary, and it could not have been a more perfect day. It was a day where everyone could just happily scream: FINALLY! We got a little extra teary eyed when it came time for the vows, which we immediately started chuckling over because mirroring someone when you try to "hold left hands" is HARD :P. We are so happy for Sam and Stefan! Not only did we get to witness their ceremony, but come July, we'll be ready to celebrate them again at their reception! The greatest thing about weddings is that no matter the date, location, or amount of people in attendance, it's about two lives becoming one. Nothing else matters in that exact moment, except those two people. Since the pandemic has forced a majority of couples to not have their moment with each other, it's been exciting and comforting to see all weddings resume in the smaller capacity. It fills our heart with joy to see this type of happiness again <3. Enjoy their...

Allie & Josh Kurtz's Beach

Wedding Photographers in Pasadena

Winter. Wedding. Greatness! Seriously, Allie and Josh couldn't have asked for a more perfect day than February 1st for their wedding. The weather was great, the rain held off until the evening, and the atmosphere was exciting and beautiful. This was our first time photographing at Kurtz's Beach, and it has very quickly became a favorite venue! The wide open and clean look of the dance floor, the amazing rustic but modern ceremony space, and the ample patio area is what we dream for every location. It was a stunning spot for Allie and Josh to officially start their forever! Leading up to the ceremony, we experienced a first at a wedding: a trick first look. Now, we've done first looks, first touches, no-look first looks (TM pending :P), but we've never had a bride trick the groom by having a groomsman dress up in a wedding dress. It was the most hilariously kept secret, because literally everyone knew about it except for Josh. By the look on Josh's face when he sees Kevin in that dress, I'd say it's something he wishes he never did see (Kevin if you're reading this, we think you make a beautiful bride). There is just nothing better than a wedding day filled with unique personality and wonderful memories. That is a moment that Allie, Josh, and all of their friends and family will remember forever. I mean, they'll remember the whole day, but seriously...Kevin in a wedding dress is memory gold. We...

Meagan & Jake Mt. Washington Mill Dye House

Wedding Photographers in Baltimore

I hope everyone had an amazing holiday season! We took some time off, stuffed our faces, and just relaxed! But before all of that, we had Meagan and Jake's GORGEOUS wedding on December 21st! Meagan and Jake are two of the most amazing people. I got to meet these two at a Copper Kitchen and Dye House event last year, so I was really excited to see them again!  Everything was immaculate for Jake and Meagan, and we couldn't have been any more thankful to be photographing it all. They had the best setting, the greatest weather, and the most fantastic people surrounding them. Seriously, from the second we walked into the different getting ready areas we could see how deep and loving every person's relationship was with Meagan and Jake. There was tons of laughter, tears, and giddiness leading up to the ceremony. EVERYONE was excited and it was incredibly energizing! We are so happy for Meagan and Jake. Their day was perfect, and we KNOW their first holiday season as Mr. & Mrs. was a fantastic one. Holiday cheer, newlywed bliss, HELLO?! How can it not be the most amazing time!  Fabulous extras about Meagan & Jake's day! · Meagan's grandma Bea gave THE best speech/poem we've ever heard! · Jake choreographed his and Meagan's first dance. · Their first dance was EPIC! There were flips, twists, and dips. I found myself screaming along with the crowd when it concluded! AHH! · Meagan's grandma...

Erica & Ben Camp Puh'Tok

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

I have SO many things to say about Ben and Erica's gorgeous camp wedding! Not only was their celestial theme on point for Camp Puh'Tok's style, but the level of emotions were next level. Every person involved in the day cried AT LEAST twice (groomsmen...I know one of them must have shed a tear :P). It was such a special and romantic day that captured every ounce of who Ben and Erica are. The whole day was such a calming experience, which feels weird to say about a wedding, but I mean it! Ben and Erica are two of the sweetest and hilarious people who are so easy to feel comfortable around. It's really an amazing superpower when someone has the ability to just make other's feel important. It's even more amazing when there's TWO people with that superpower and they get married to each other. Getting to witness that big moment between Ben and Erica was incredible. We are so happy for these two. We've gotten the chance to hangout with them (& sing some karaoke) leading up to the day and, honestly, they felt like friends right from the start. We feel so honored and thankful for Erica and Ben, and cannot wait to see where life takes them! Cool things from B&E's day! · They were able to capture their musical tastes within their ceremony thanks to Vitamin String Quartet. We heard Sail by AWOLNATION, Snow by Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Get...
