Baltimore Backyard Spring Wedding

Mark and Julie

This is a story that no one would have ever guessed.  What started as a tragedy ended as a fairytale which just shows just that no matter what Mark and Julie found their way to each other.  Their happiness and love just SHINE in these images.  Mark and Julie decided to move forward with a small wedding/elopement package.  Anything under 6 hours, I am able to do hourly pricing for you so don’t let that prevent you from reaching out!

DIY Backyard Wedding

Mark and Julie decided to get married at Julie’s parents house right in their backyard.  The community truly came together on the perfect spring day.  The decorated with fresh spring flowers everywhere.  But honestly, all you needed was that bright spring day right on the water, on the docks that Julie spent so many years on.  It seemed fitting to also declare her love for her husband there too.

One of my favorite moments of the day…Julie walking out of the house down the aisle to see Mark.  Not a dry eye in the place!

The Big Surprise!

Julie and Mark had a huge surprise for everyone at the end of their wedding.  They announced that they were EXPECTING a baby!!  They were going to use that opportunity to show everyone the gender.  At that point, they didn’t even know.  They had all the sisters and Julie’s stepdaughter launch the confetti.  IT WAS BLUE!!!

Portraits in the Spring On the Water

Midday is the hardest time to take wedding photos and on the water makes it even harder!!  The bright light reflects everywhere.  This is why you need to hire a photographer with experience.  Despite the lack of ideal light, we were able to find some spots for their wedding portraits.  We only took a few minutes to grab these before the res too the wedding reception continued.
