What Makes Me Different

Let's be honest, cause that's what I do (overly so sometimes), there are a ton of wedding photographers.  We are everywhere, like a plague of instagraming and pintresting fools, snapping away while gleefully gawking at the back of our cameras.  If we did a physical weigh-in, it would definitely exceed a ton because there are SO freaking many of us.  So what does that mean when you are looking at my work and considering hiring me versus the many other great options out there?

Lindsay and Mike's The Mansion at Valley Country Club

Well it might be a tad late, but I've finally got Lindsay and Mike's wedding at The Mansion at Valley Country Club up on the blog. You may remember these two from their engagement session last winter. These love birds had an amazingly beautiful wedding day; one of the last perfect days of the Fall in fact. They said their vows on the front steps of the Valley Country Club and celebrated the evening away in the beautiful reception hall.  It was something else to see with the amazing draperies alongside the warm dark hardwood that covers the walls and floors of this historic wedding venue. 

Jessica and Max's Downtown Baltimore Engagement Photos

Well it was certainly chilly this morning.  In the low 50s when I rolled out of the house on my way to Fells Point.  Standing outside of The Daily Grind sipping on a red-eye and looking out over the Inner Harbor, I could not help but just feel the peace that Baltimore has in the early mornings. Beautiful mornings like this are made for engagement sessions.  I knew that Jessica and Max's engagement photographs in Fells Point were going to be spectacular.

Puerto Rico Vacation

Puerto Rico Vacation

Back in May of 2017 myself and Anna had the chance to go to Puerto Rico to "get away from it all", so I packed up all of my cameras and we went to a different place where I continued to take photos of everything while Anna relaxed.  In all seriousness though, it was a welcome respite from Baltimore and city life.  In light of the recent devistation that has happened in Puerto Rico as a result of an unfortunate set of back to back hurricanes; I wanted to share our photos from our trip and tell you a little about what we did there.

Jenni and Brad's 8 Chains North Summer Winery Wedding Photographs

Jenni and Brad's 8 Chains North Summer Winery Wedding Photographs

ack in the spring I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of a couple that I've known for many years.  In fact, Brad used to live in the room directly below me in college.  Apparently, these two met in our college's computer lab while Brad was attempting to hack the World Bank and Jenni did homework.  I'm not sure the hacking worked but in the end he got something much more valuable than money.  Time passed, they fell in love.  According to Brad its because Jenni has, "pretty hair and a nice butt".  

Lindsay and Mike's Maryland Farm Engagement

Lindsay and Mike's Maryland Farm Engagement

For the most part my engagement and wedding photography happens in or near by Baltimore, and never on a farm.  When I got the call from Lindsay asking me to be her wedding photographer I didn't expect that we'd be shooting her engagement on this amazing farm.  The wind was crisp but the sun kept us warm as we wondered around the farm that belongs to their cousins (and is fully operational!).  Photographing their engagement on the farm was such a cool opportunity.  It gave me the opportunity to flex my creative muscles and actually work with some open spaces.

Mary and Steve's Herrington on the Bay Wedding

Mary and Steve's Herrington on the Bay Wedding

As I'm sure some of you remember, I photographed this stud and beauty's engagement over the summer at their home Mary and Steve's Engagement.  A home that happens to be walking distance from their wedding venue; Herrington on the Bay.  If rain on your wedding day is good luck, these two got it by the bucket loads.  We did manage to sneak in some KILLER night shots of these two.  There's something about working in tricky lighting situations that just gets my creative juices going.

Stephanie and Darrel's Brewery Wedding

Stephanie and Darrel's Brewery Wedding

Sometimes in wedding photography you get asked to shoot in some pretty interesting locations.  People tend to pick a wedding or reception venue that really reflects who they are.  While I might be a Baltimore wedding photographer, I had the chance to photograph a wedding in DC where the reception took place at an amazing brewery. The Right Proper Brewery in DC is where Stephanie and Darrel decided to celebrate their wedding with close family and friends.  It was freaking awesome!
