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.
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".
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.
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.
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!
Wow, another year down. To say this last year flew by would be an understatement! Between listing my house for sale, having that sale fall through, my parents moving to Tennessee and shooting more than twice the weddings I did last year and becoming far more active with my website I feel like the year was one for the books. So lets touch back on the things that happened in 2016 shall we?
One of the cool opportunities I get as a wedding photographer, is working with people that I've known for a long time. Jessica here, is the daughter of one of my father's high school friends. I've known her longer than most other people in my life and despite not being a blood relative, she might as well be my cousin. When I found out that she had a guy in her life and a little one on the way I jumped at the opportunity to photograph the two of them. Then, I found out that we were going to photograph their engagement session at the Kent State University Airport. How cool, right? We literally photographed on a runway...
