The newlywed season is here! Bridgitte and Mark’s wedding was the perfect way to start the season off with a bang! With Maryland’s beautiful seasons, grand cities and impeccable waterfront venues it's no wonder so many couples find Maryland to be the perfect location for such a special day. As a Maryland based photographer with years of experience working with the surrounding venues I was thrilled that Bridgitte and Mark chose us to share their big day with. Bridgitte and Mark chose the city of Downtown Annapolis to share their wedding day with family and friends. Historic Inns of Annapolis’s governor Calvert House strung bistro lights from aisle to aisle providing a romantic and elegant scene as Bridgitte made her way to Mark. From the bright turquoise table numbers and place cards to the beautiful pastel flower arrangements consisting of an array of white flowers and purple succulents designed by WJM Floral, this wedding was one for the books! The reception was entertained by a great selection of wedding and dance tunes by Chris Campbell from C & J Entertainment Agency and to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth before the night's end the Bride and Groom chose a local baker, Honey Hive Bakery Home of Cakes by Rachael who provided a stunning and delicious three tiered wedding cake accented with snowflakes for the perfect christmas feel.
It wasn't that long ago that I was a bored accountant in a job that wasn't exciting to me, and ultimately just wasn't the right fit for me. When I shot my first wedding eight years ago, I stumbled onto something I honestly never thought I would enjoy, I was just doing a favor for a friend. I always thought wedding photography was cheesy and boring based on my own experience at my wedding. That wedding however, was the start of my transition to a job that I love, and within 1 year, I made a change in careers that lead me, 250 weddings later, to where I am today. I was a total novice and constantly questioned my decision to change career paths, but I pushed through the tough times, learned everything I could about the industry (I'm still learning every day) and somehow made it to a point where I am being asked for advice on weddings by industry publications. That is one of the reasons it is so thrilling for me when the definitive annual industry resource, The 2016 International Wedding Trends Report included my input for this years report. It's a great ready for brides and industry professionals alike. Check it out here!
