Jay and Stephanie were meeting a friend out when that friend canceled on them. They ended up talking the entire night and clicked instantly. From there, they started dating and fell in love. Their love has taken them from Baltimore to Michigan and now back to Baltimore for their wedding at Kimpton Hotel Monaco. I’ve known Jay for years and it was so amazing to get to witness his special day with Stephanie. These two just balance each other out perfectly. I met Stephanie for the first time on her wedding day, but instantly felt like I had known her longer. I can see why Jay picked her, they just work so well together. I’m so excited to see what the Lord has in store for them now that they are married. I know that he is going to do amazing things in their relationship and I’m so happy that I got to play a little part in capturing it. Jay and Stephanie, congrats! I hope you like the preview!!
Teal converse shoes?? YES PLEASE!!While I was with the girls my assistant photographer, Hannah, was capturing the guys getting ready!
Stephanie and Jay decided to do their first glance on the stairs across from each other! It was so sweet, especially to see them running down the stairs to see each other after the first glance. Love this shot that my second shooter, Hannah, got!
Ha! Love how goofy Jay is and how he makes Stephanie laugh…these two!! So sweet!
Jay’s ancestors brought this bible from Italy and it’s been passed down through each generation. Jay and Stephanie prayed over it, it was a really cool tradition. When your couple dances down the aisle…I love these guys! After the ceremony, we were able to grab a couple more shots at Hotel Monaco!Love all of Stephanie’s accessories. Every time I saw her, all I could think is that she is like a beautiful goddess! Jay proposed to Stephanie by giving her a book and hiding the ring in it. All the book decorations at the reception were just so fitting!Best.entrance.ever.
When your best friend catches the bouquet! Congrats you two!! I am so happy for you both, I hope you like the pictures!
