Yah! This awesome October wedding is up on the blog today! And we couldn’t be more excited to share it! Hannah and Chris had a beautiful Hayfields country club wedding, a sister club to Turf Valley resort, with a stunning pond, spacious grounds and main club house. During the pandemic the club did renovations so the ballroom looked very different from when I was last there in 2014 photographing florals for Victoria Clausen.
We are so excited to share Jasmine + Brian’s Eagles Nest Country Club wedding! This wedding was shot by our associate team, Melissa and Patrick, and it was a killer day. Jasmine and Brian are such fun couple, and you could totally see their personalities through the details they chose to bring into their wedding. For example, Jasmine’s accent color was “Bling” – from her shoes, to the table decor, to her incredible rhinestone bouquet, the day sparkled! Jasmine also was so organized and detail oriented, it was amazing working with her throughout the planning process, which made for a smooth wedding day.
Yah! I’m excited to share this wedding with you all today! This Springfield manor wedding is full of beautiful, sweetness and a lot of fun! I met Allison all because of Basket and Blossom, an incredible florist who we’ve not only worked alongside many times, but have photographed more than 1 of their staff members! The day was full, sunny, bright but all for the sake of killer photos, well worth the heat!
If you’re a photographer, it’s your off season. That doesn’t mean you’re not working, shooting, or catching up from your 2021 year. Today I’m sharing a handful of thing that you should be doing to bring life back to yourself, your business and to get ready for the 2022 year ahead!
Alysia and Brooks had the best day. When I think of their day the moments that stand out the most. Brooks seeing her for the first time is how we all want to be looked at as a bride (or at least I did!). She surprised him with a beautiful blush colored gown. Alysia’s dad responded so sweet alongside his wife and her sister during her father reveal. Probably today they have one of the coolest incorporation of honoring generations at a wedding. Alysia worked really hard with her both her moms to gather wedding items from wedding gowns, shoes, veils, purses, from the living grandparents who would be attending the wedding. Alysia surprised the three beautiful grandmothers on her wedding day with their wedding dresses on display doe all to see. It was beyond beautiful and so honoring of her grandmothers.
I’m going to kick this blog post off saying that Bridget and Kenny’s dogs are by far the best and cutest golden retrievers and the most obedient at a wedding, even better than kids haha. But really, really awesome dogs that belong to our amazing Kenny and Bridgette! Their pups were part of the entire day from getting ready to portraits through ceremony.
Kenny and Bridgette, Patrick and I were honored and so excited to be alongside you guys. Although we had never met until the wedding day we felt like we were walking into a friends wedding day of. You guys made us feel so special upon our arrival and it meant the world to us. The whole day was fun. You guys trusted us. For not having done an engagement session you guys were amazing with letting us give you direction for posing and hopefully you felt like you got to enjoy your wedding the way you wanted.
250!!!! Before I dive into the beauty and adventure of this day I have to just make it known that Emma and Thomas marked for us our 250th wedding, which is that in and of itself is crazy considering we have only been full-time for seven years. We actually didn’t realize until the following week that they were our 250th couple. Just unreal. Thank you Emma and Thomas! So glad it was you!
This wedding was so much fun. I’ve gotten to know Emma over the course of the last few months. Our time with them at their engagement session was so fun, so we knew so would their wedding be! When you first meet Emma she is vibrant and so special. She makes you feel like you’re the most important person in the room. She’s kind, sweet and definitely funny. Her and I share a love of using the Cricut except she is an expert, she basically made everything for her wedding!
What a sweet, sweet day. Rachel and Matt had a beautiful wedding at the Hunt Valley Country Club this August! They had a really cute first look where Rachel signed her new name onto a baseball for Matt who is a huge fan. Their ceremony was so personalized and sweet and was a true testament to their relationship and all that they had been through. Not a dry eye from our photography team left! They are both such a relaxed and fun couple and it showed throughout their wedding day and how much fun they had during their reception. Thanks so much for including us, it was an honor to be there on your wedding day!
We met Sarah and Mike at a Bridal show 1 month before Covid hit. It’s crazy typing that out because I actually remember life before COVID. We could hug, stand 6 inches from someone in line for coffee. When Sarah and Mike emailed us that they would have to reschedule, we were so happy to know we were available for their 2021 date. As with all our couples who had to reschedule, we couldn’t even fathom the stress, heartache and disappointment that would come with postponement. Sarah was one of my brides that seemed even keel throughout the process. Even on her wedding day, she was relaxed, excited, and just looking forward to being with Mike, her family, and share the day with the guests who attended. They had a beautiful ceremony at St. Marks church in Catonsville followed by a lovely reception at Overhills Mansion.
Sarah’s bouquets and florals may have been some of my favorites I’ve seen this year. I LOVED the variety of flowers, the colors and they paired so well with the dresses, and the feel and theme of the day.
We met Candice and Nick at a bridal expo at Rosewood Farms in late 2019 right before anyone knew a pandemic was headed this way. Candice and Nick are a genuine, sweet, and just down to earth couple that we could easily find ourselves staying friends with for years to come. Candice and Nick postponed their June 2020 wedding to December 2020 and decided to have their wedding regardless of people count. They knew they just wanted to be married, have family and friends present, and they did.
This is a guide listing out the items that we'd love our couples to have ready for us when we arrive. It totally helps us create beautiful flat lays and get all of those timeless, gorgeous detail photos!
