Maryland Wedding Photographer

Sandy + Kevin // Baltmore Wedding at AVAM

Sandy + Kevin were married two weeks ago, in an epic Baltimore rainstorm. They got ready, did a first look, and then the rain started!

They made their way to the American Visionary Art Museum in a torrential downpour and tied the knot, Kevin cracking continuous jokes the entire time. And Sandy, looking stunning in a gorgeous sleeveless wedding gown, couldn’t contain her laughter. I just absolutely love these two people and their wedding was wonderful!

Theirs was a true Baltimore wedding: Orange Crushes for all, pit beef, crabcakes, random weather phenomenon, inner harbor views, great guest outfits, huge dance party!

Enough chitchat; photographs commence!

crazy // strange // great // 2018

Well, that was a year alright.

A crazy, strange, great 2018. Let’s break that down:

Crazy: what even happened this year?! Abbi + I traveled all over the country with family, and went back to Italy for a third time! I flew to California for a few weddings, and moved to Baltimore Maryland! A LOT of traveling. We’re both really loving Baltimore so you should come visit!! It is actually an awesome town. Just gotta dodge the horrible drivers.

Strange: this year saw less overall bookings than previous years, so I used it as a time to do some thinking about what’s been successful and unsuccessful and what I need to work on personally + professionally in the coming months and years. A new website is in the works and I’m…pretty dang excited about it! I’ve also tried some cool new stuff this year…more on that below.

Great: The weddings I was privileged to be a part of this year and the people that I’ve met along the way have made this an incredible year. I love photography, because when done well, it has the power to paint an emotional canvas of a whole life in each image. Looking back on all of the moments in these amazing people’s lives, I feel honored to be doing what I’m doing; to have a perspective on those moments. The trust you put into a photographer is In the images below you’ll see a whole lot of things in addition to my weddings and engagements. It’s been interesting to try to stretch myself a little this year. Political stuff, editorial events, travel photos; I’ve even done some newborn, baby, and family sessions this year, one of which was for a couple whose wedding I photographed three years ago! It’s so exciting to see these people going through another amazing stage of life and to reconnect after so long.

Katie + Jorge // Washington DC Wedding

...what to say about the couple who has everything?

//

Katie and Jorge are two peas in a ridiculous pod.

Both of them have the amazing ability to warm up any room just by being in it, and Katie's smile always brings a smile to my face too.  Full disclosure: a LOT of my close friends were at this wedding, being crazy, and making it one of the most fun and epic weddings I've ever shot.  After the wedding at Catholic University Chapel, everybody scooted over to Glen Echo for carousel rides, an uncountable amount of cookies, and dancing the night away.  The evening was punctuated by beautiful speeches, me sneaking the lucky couple out for night portraits as often as possible, and all of the guests dance-fighting over rights to stand in front of the well-placed giant dancefloor fan, which undoubtedly averted a string of heatstroke-related injuries.

I cannot explain how happy I am to show off these beautiful people doing crazy things like getting married, so I'll stop here and let the photos do the talking!
