Baltimore Wedding Photographer

Victoria & Josh Peabody Library

Wedding Photographers in Baltimore

"Holy wowzer" is about all I can say about Victoria and Josh's celebration... plus everything else that I'm about to say :P. Victoria and Josh had the most glorious Baltimore reception at the George Peabody Library. Seriously, it doesn't get any more beautiful than that library. It's like stepping into Beauty and the Beast, times a million. Yes, it's BETTER than any fairy tale that Disney could ever think up. Victoria and Josh couldn't have asked for a more perfect day for their grand finale of wedding festivities. After getting married in Italy in August, September was the month of celebration. All of their family and friends were there to cheer them on, chow down on some of the BEST food, and dance the night away. We honestly were in awe of it all, ESPECIALLY the grand reveal of the Library. Everything was such a dream. We are so happy that we got the chance to meet and celebrate Victoria and Josh. Their love is so much fun and filled with adventure. We loved getting to know, them and their reception will forever remain one of our absolute favorites! Congratulations, Victoria and Josh (and Bella :P) Fun stuffs from the day! Victoria and Josh's fur-baby, Bella, made an appearance for family photos, and then had her driver take her back home. So posh! They got to peek at their guests coming into the library from atop the stacks in the secret shadows. Victoria did all of the signage for...

Clara & Alec Liriodendron Mansion

Wedding Photographers in Maryland

Oh my goodness! This wedding season has been amazing. On Saturday we got to celebrate Clara and Alec in Bel Air at the Liriodendron Mansion, which just so happens to be one of our favorite venues! The architecture is amazing, there's a stunning staircase, and the sunsets are perfection. Honestly, it's just gorgeous all the time, no matter what!  I feel like we have been waiting for Clara and Alec's wedding day for forever! It's been over a year since their beautiful engagement session, and, to be real, I was ready for their wedding the second we got to the first location. These two are so incredibly sweet, hilarious, and easy to get along with. They have an incredible sense of humor that Clara's dad described as "unique", which really makes us adore them even more. They aren't afraid to be weird together, and if that's not the foundation of a great relationship - I don't what is, haha!  Their wedding day was filled with such a brilliant amount of happiness. Clara's bridesmaids kept her laughing and enjoying every moment, while Alec's guys chilled and chatted to keep Alec calm (they also struggled with the boutonnière a little :P). There were so many amazing moments during the day, including a serenade from one of Alec's groomsman and the private last dance just between the newlyweds. We loved every single second of their day, and are so honored that we got to capture it all for them...

Becca & Cassin Sherwood Forest

Engagement Photographers in Maryland

There are some session locations that feel straight out of a movie. Becca and Cassin's engagement happens to be one of those! Not only did they choose a sentimental location (Cassin's and his mom moved to Sherwood when Cassin was in high school), but they also picked one that is so friggin' gorgeous! Sherwood Forest is a community unlike any other. It's kind of like stepping back in time. There's summer living cabins, camp activities, their own postal service. It's truly idyllic. So knowing that this is also where Becca and Cassin are getting married, we did a [secret] little happy dance :P. Something important about Becca and Cassin: they are extremely easy-going. They were a little nervous before we started the session, but, man, their total relaxed nature made it easy to jump in and feel comfortable. They had fun with the poses, with each other, and NEVER showed those nerves. I kind of also attribute the lack of nerves to the golf cart ride chats between spots. We all got to know each other as individuals a bit better, which naturally will create a very comfy environment.  We cannot wait until September when we get to see these two again and celebrate their wedding. It's going to be a gorgeous day. I maybe, kind of, a little bit was freaking out when we got to peek through the windows of the ceremony and reception space. SO PRETTY! I have small problem containing my "too much" gene...

Tori & Mason Historic Ogle Hall

Wedding Photographers in Annapolis, Maryland

Where do I even start with Tori and Mason's wedding day?! It was gorgeous, intimate, and full of silly moments all around Annapolis. I kind of feel like we took an amazing tour of downtown Annapolis from Calvert House, to Historic Ogle Hall, to Blackwall Hitch. We saw it all with Tori and Mason, and it was the best day ever! Tori and Mason's wedding fit them SO well! It was calm, personal, and beautiful. Their officiant was Mason's brother, their guest list was close family, and their reception dinner was filled with inside jokes. These two light up a room with the way they look at each other, one glance their way and you can tell they are the most amazing complement to each other. They both are hysterical, caring, and have interesting passions that can spark a million conversations (seriously, Mason's history knowledge is INSANE - in a good way). Seeing everyone shower them with so much love was incredible.  Being able to witness and photograph Tori and Mason's wedding is something I've looked forward to since last August. I talked a little bit about it in their engagement blog post, but Tori and I have been friends since high school. Being able to see one of my oldest and dearest friends find her perfect person sends me right over the moon. We will forever be cheering on their marriage, and looking forward to watching this next chapter of their lives! And to Tori and Mason, we...

Tori & Mason Kinder Farm Park

Engagement Photographers in Maryland

I. Am. Beyond. Obsessed! Tori and Mason's session at Kinder Farm Park is easily one of my favorites. Not only are these two friggin' cute together, but Tori is also one of my dearest friends. We've known each other since high school, which, for those of you who require numbers, is 10+ years. It's always such an honor to photograph any couple's wedding, but when it's friend's, there's a little extra magic involved. We absolutely adore Mason and Tori. They fit together so incredibly well, and it's no surprise that they are each other's match. There's something about the two of them that just makes you feel really comfortable. You can see it clearly in the photos, they are people you want and need to be friends with.  Their story is unique with the two of them meeting because of a study that Tori was conducting for grad school on twins (Mason and his brother were one..two? of her subjects). What followed were very long date nights and loads of romantic comedy moments. If it sounds like a movie that's because it should be, haha! There's going to be nothing better than seeing these two on their wedding day and witnessing one of their biggest moments together. Shawn and I are honored to be their photographers, but we're even more honored to know Tori and Mason, and call them friends. UGH! I've got to save some of this sap for the wedding blog! Enjoy their Kinder Farm Park...

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...

Rachel & Jake Rock Creek Park

Engagement Photographers in Maryland

I am so excited to share Rachel and Jake's engagement session! In June we met up at Rock Creek Park in Washington DC for a gorgeous evening. This park is so cool. There's so many different mill areas, hidden monuments, and a beautiful river. It's an amazing spot that I'm really happy Rachel and Jake introduced us to.  We have been looking forward to meeting Rachel and Jake for months. We actually had an earlier session date scheduled, but with the crazy weather of Maryland, it got pushed back. Thankfully, the end of June was much better with its rain and we were able to FINALLY meet. These two are as sweet and kind as we imagined they would be. They are so easy to chat with! Strolling around Rock Creek Park with them we got to know them so much better, which as everyone knows, is the reason we love engagement shoots! Now that we are in the wedding month for Rachel and Jake, I am so happy to share their engagement session and kick up the celebrating to a new level! This time next week, Rachel and Jake will be Mr. & Mrs. and I for one, cannot wait! Cheers to the wedding countdown <3. Enjoy their Rock Creek Park Engagement ...

At Home Engagement Sweetness in Essex, Maryland

Krystle & David

If you aren't sure if you want an engagement session, I urge you to keep reading this post. Eventually the words will turn into photos, which should sell you completely. Krystle and David's session is LITERALLY what I love about engagement sessions. They had fun ideas, a clear vision, and dove right in. There was a comfort level right from the start that really made this shoot fantastic. It helped that they chose such a special location: their home in Essex!  There are seriously not enough adjectives to describe Krystle and David's relationship. There aren't even enough to describe them as individuals. They are one of a kind! The way these two snuggle together and fit so neatly into each other's arm just...AH! It makes me eyes tear up. Seeing a love like their's is like watching the last 5 minutes of romantic comedy, you feel every ounce of happy emotion and really excited for the future. The best part of Krystle and David's movie, though? They are real and we get to celebrate them in person, haha!  Not only do these two feel like friends already, but their day is shaping up to be spectacular. It's important to note that I'm not just saying that because they gave us two bottles of DELICIOUS wine, haha! Krystle and David put so much thought into their engagement session. They made sure it reflected both of them, and all of the love they have for one another. David is...

What Do We Do in the Off Season?

A Little About Us

During the off season, Shawn and I like to take some time for ourselves. We usually spend a few days after the holidays relaxing in our pajamas and binging Netflix (I've watch The Crown twice already). However, we do have to get back to work at some point. Shawn goes back to the lab (literally), and I start making lists for the 2017 season. I plan website updates, restructure our pricing, and find some different business workshops to sign up for. The off season is absolutely not the most exciting time for anyone looking in from the outside, but for us, it's a time to dream big. In last week's post, I talked about our goals for 2017. Both personal and business aspirations were briefly listed, but there wasn't much said about them. Three of the biggest things I am looking forward to from that list are making improvements to the website, creating a newsletter, and unveiling the client lounge. Design elements make me the happiest to think of, and those three items are huge for us. They make me giddy to think about, so I definitely want to share them with everyone. The BCP Website With every passing year, there are new trends and updated styles. Over the course of 2016, I got really inspired by other creative uses of web space, and I began planning my own changes. Now, the updates I have in mind are not a design overhaul or anything crazy. I have plans for a...

Something Borrowed, Something True 2016

Favorite Tips of the Year

Hello friends! It's been quite some time since I've done an installment for the Something Borrowed series. I've really had a blast sharing some of the tips from our brides and grooms. I feel like it's opened my eyes a little more to seeing how other people handle wedding planning. When I first created this series last year, I didn't plan on it being this incredibly insightful for myself. We all have encounter different problems and have different understandings, which helps makes our experiences unique, and my goal for those blogs is to share the tips that others have picked up through the planning process. However, with everything, it wasn't long until I realized that I was learning a lot too. It's pretty awesome to be able to apply the lessons that others have learned to your own life. The tips that our previous couples have shared can still have an impact on more than just a wedding day. Shawn and I have been married for two years, and there really isn't anything about the day I could think to change. So I wouldn't expect the words my couples share to be resonating with me, but they absolutely do. Whether it's in the reflection of how I look at our wedding, or how I go about life in general. Our couples have really made a difference to our life and hopefully to a lot of others. Something Borrowed, Something You One of my favorite excerpts from a Something Borrowed...
