So what is the "Dirty Truth" about wedding days? What is the scandalous, tabloid jarring, hitting the evening late braking news cycle about wedding days?
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".
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?
Some of you may recognize this couple. I photographed their engagement in downtown Frederick last Winter. You can check out that blog post here Ashley and Josh's Engagement. Well they had such a good time with me they brought me around for their wedding too. Thankfully, this time the weather was so perfect the day seemed to stretch on forever in one of those perfectly blissful warm Fall afternoons.
Sam and Mike got married this last summer almost when that CRAZY storm wiped out most of Ellicott City. Safely nestled up on a hill, overlooking the city, is the Patapsco Female Institute. Its the shell of a old school that's been renovated and turned into an open air venue. Does that make it "old-school cool"? Dad jokes aside, it's a beautiful wedding venue and these two filled it with love. Their gorgeous wedding matched the colors of the Institute and it couldn't have been more perfect. Samantha's family even managed to get her dad's old convertible up and running just for the wedding.
Well damn... guess that's a wrap for 2015 huh? What a crazy little year I had. Shot a ton of weddings, met a ton of awesome people, and all the other nonsense that happened. Lets recap all of the "other nonsense" and some of the other shit that went down. Then we can look forward to the FUTURE (or next week since that's when 2016 happens).
