We’ve never done this and we thought it would be awesome to share. We get a lot of compliments on our work and our personalities and our professionalism, so we figured it would be appropriate to share some of our 2018 Behind the Scenes to show the not so glamorous part of our job… some embarrassing and some hilarious… What an amazing year we had, we hope you had an incredible 2018 too.Read More
We are so so so pumped to be sharing this wedding. What a crew, what a party, what a couple. Our second to last wedding of the year was unreal. The day started with a pretty high chance of rain, and it totally changed. My dream wedding day is partly cloudy, sun hidden, and rain at the end of the night, and that’s exactly what these two go. I know we are crazy, but it’s the best coloration. No one is squinky or sweaty. Cold is still beautiful weather and as I tell all my bridesmaid as they shiver in the cold “pretend I just flew you to Maui” and then they laugh as I remind them it could be a lot worse, it could be blizzarding or pouring rain.
As they shared their first look, their bridal party cheered from afar and we were able to get all their portraits, wedding party and family photos finished before the heavy mist and the start of rain came. Lauren is a lacrosse coach at Mt. St. Mary’s so it was pretty special they got married in the chapel and a her team even came to the ceremony to rally around them!Read More
We’ve never attended or shot a wedding where there was so much smiling and so much laughing, especially during a ceremony. Courtney and Ryan had a beautiful Maritime Museum Wedding in December in Fells Point. If we had to summarize this wedding, it would be in words. Hockey, Beer, Brunch, Laughter, and genuine sweetness. This is our second couple this year to have a common love of hockey, beer, and their friends and family. This wedding is special to us because this is not our first time working with this family. We shot Courtney’s sister Carrie’s wedding in 2016, still can’t believe they’ve been married 2 years!Read More
This wedding was probably our most looked forward to wedding. Our favorite weddings aren’t always our $100k+ weddings, they also can be our elopements or 50 person weddings. Most the time our favorite weddings are the ones where our couples are sweet, down to earth and phenomenal to work with. Shooting Sarah and Graysons wedding was one of my favorites for sure because Sarah is like family and she’s worked with us for 3 years!
Sarah has been in our lives for the last 3 years… Grayson too. We met Sarah through one of our other couples and we hired her to be our assistant. Over the last 3 years she has been a crucial part of our growth, our success and our family. Zeke loves her Aunt Sarah, and Sarah has become an incredible photographer. She now leads our secondary team and has her own wedding through Living Radiant.
We’ve photographed many Jewish weddings, but for some reason, Rachel and Bens wedding and Ketubah signing was so cool and so special. Maybe it was just the fact that our couple was so close to their Rabbi that it made it even more sentimental.
Rachel and Ben were the last of our November weddings. It had rained so much leading up to their wedding day that we were all relieved when there was no rain on their wedding day.Read More
Let’s just start with saying the dinner was the best part haha. We discovered during their engagement session that we all love Indian food and decided we should try a new place that none of us had been to. That way if we had a great experience, it would be a win, and if it was horrible, we’d had a good laugh and story. Kelsey and Chad, how much fun… you guys were so much fun to spend time with. If your wedding day is going to be anything like your session, holy moly, it’s gonna be awesome!!Read More
The leaves were falling and fading and we knew we had to get Kelsey and Matt their fall engagement session they wanted. November was so so wet, like I remember more rainy days than sunny days in November. We finally got these guys scheduled and they met us out at Centennial Park. The day was windy but beautiful and we were so excited there were still a lot of coloration for these lovebirds. Our time with them was so much fun. We were bummed we couldn’t do their double date afterwards to dinner or lunch but they did come back and have some of my famous chai in our home… (Kelsey, it’s the best, isn’t it!?) We are so excited to see you guys again and do our date!Read More
This may be a sappy post but you better keep reading. Heather and Tyler are one of our 2016 couples. They got married on a beautiful September day. Within a year of being married, Tyler got diagnosed with cancer. He beat it once and we celebrated alongside them.
Earlier this year it came back, in another part of his body. We stood alongside these two, prayed with them, spoke life over them, and declared healing, joy, and believed for the miraculous once again in their lives.
Guys… yesterday, Heather and Tyler got the news from his doctor that the PET scan came back, and he is in complete remission! Thank you Jesus! I cried in the bathroom yesterday morning when Tyler text us on our group chat.Read More
We met Brooke at a bridal show at Turf Valley earlier in the year and she ended up being our engagement session winner. I remember when I met her and we talked, she was so sweet and kind. When we found that she and Nick wanted to meet with us and hire us for their wedding, we were so excited. These two lovebirds get married in March 2019 and we spent our time with them for their session in DC. We literaly galavanted all over the mall in DC from the Jefferson Memorial to the Reflecting Pond and the WWII Memorial.Read More
O.M.G…. can we just stop and say…. Jenn and Brent got FALLLLLLLL engagement photos. As ya’ll know, this has been such a wet year and the weather is having an identity crisis. We had literally rescheduled Brent and Jenn a few times because of weather and other scenarios and we just lucked out with the weather and the coloration for their day! It wasn’t and shouldn’t have been so colorful, but it was and we aren’t complaining.
Jenn and Brent, we absolutely loved our time with you. It doesn’t help that we are biased towards these two for 2 reasons. Brent works for an amazing Ellicott City realtor and happens to know Patrick’s cousin pretty well. And Jenn works for us part time and is a killer dancer!Read More
