Maryland Wedding Photographer | Private Home | Lauren + Chris

Wedding

I had been looking forward to seeing Lauren and Chris again since their engagement session in Rittenhouse Square last year. There was something about them, individually and together, that I felt so drawn to. Maybe it was Lauren’s snort laughs or Chris’ knowledge and presentation of all things dapper.

They were married on a beautiful day in Pasadena, Maryland in the backyard of her family’s lakeside house.

The lovely dress she chose was the fourth dress she tried on.

Lauren walked arm in arm (in arm) with her parents from the home to the awaiting happy Chris. She arrived and he said, “I’m glad you showed up.”

After landing on my rear in front of everyone as they exited from the ceremony (really smooth, Lindsay), I got lots of time with them and the bridal party. With such a scene, we didn’t have to go far.

We gathered for the introductions into the tented reception.

There were some wonderfully moving toasts about how they make each other better people. They spend a lot of time apart due to Chris’ career but they make it work and it’s beautiful.

Lauren’s dance with her father concluded with a clogging show thanks to 4 years of lessons in high school.

Lauren and Chris danced together a lot that evening, first to “All You Ever Wanted” by the Black Keys.

The evening was a riot! Neighbors surprised the couple with luminaries for the pool, there were about a dozen different kinds of pies from their favorite bakery, a friend surprised them with their very own wedding cake, and the fancy drinks kept flowing thanks to the bartender that they brought in from their favorite bar, Woodberry’s. Laughter, dancing, singing, and shenanigans all around!

I have to note that Chris’ parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary just the month before.

These two are so wonderful. They deserved this amazing day (complete with jaw-dropping sunset) and a lifetime of days just as spectacular.

I be your black bird darlin’
Hanging on your telephone wire
Flap my wings, oh yeah
And set your heart to fly

Destination Wedding Photographer | Shelter Island, NY | Valentine + Erich
Valentine and Erich’s stateside wedding fete felt like a great, big, comfortable family reunion that just happened to have a gorgeous woman in a white dress and a very dapper groom by her side (and up on stage). Valentine and Erich were first married in Valentine’s homeland, Greece, the previous month.  After their honeymoon in Santorini, Mykonos, and Geneva, they returned home to New York for a celebration with the Americans at the Shelter Island home of Erich’s late grandfather, Governor Hugh Carey.  Their wedding “invitations” were passport replicas, announcing the destination wedding theme: passport to party. Valentine first wore th ...

Garnette + Hamza: a vintage wedding in Philadelphia
I absolutely love it when I get a chance to photograph weddings that are out of the ordinary. Sometimes the venue is completely unique, sometimes there's some cultural tradition I've never experienced before, sometimes there's some quirky theme that runs through the course of the day… Garnette and Hamza's wedding was one such wedding: vintage-inspired, hot red, era-induced display of love between a fabulous couple.I met with them and their sweet bulldog, Moses, just a few weeks prior at a little coffee shop in the city. You really couldn't meet a sweeter, friendlier, laid-back couple. Here's the back story: Hamza is Moroccan and backpacked ...
