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

Joanna & John’s Reception in the Ferry Building
Say you walked into an event and were told that there were going to be Mongolian contortionists, fortune tellers, and go-go dancers. Would you believe it? That's kind of the way I felt Saturday night when I arrived at San Francisco's famed Ferry Building and went over the shot list with the event coordinator, Maxine. This was in addition to the virtual golf station and candy bar. I must say I was a little incredulous. I was half-expecting a TV camera to come out and see how long I'd let the list continue.But no. It was all very real and breathtaking.The event was a celebration of the marriage of Joanna and John, which had occurred a few ...

New Jersey Wedding Photographer | Lakeside Manor | Maria + Michael
I believe that it was a 5am email that sparked my relationship with Maria.  I was up editing lord-knows-what when a cheery email bounced my way from this spirited creature, talking to me about her nontraditional and wholly amazing upcoming wedding to her main squeeze, Michael. I responded right away and it began.  Just a few months later I would be photographing their post-wedding engagement session and their reception for friends and family after their whirlwind NEW ZEALAND ELOPEMENT! I met them in person after their wedding but just a few days before their party so that we could hang out and get some casual pictures.  Maria chose to d ...
