NYC Wedding | Battery Park Wedding | Sarah & Johari | NYC Wedding Photographer

Sarah and Johari had a gorgeous New York City Wedding in May. The Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty painted their backdrop at the Battery Gardens in Battery Park in the Financial District.

They chose so many great details for their day. Sarah had a super cool leather jacket that she wore for some portraits (you’ll see it below!). They also tied in some important cultural traditions. They did a Ketubah signing ceremony before their big ceremony, and they also tied in Jewish and African traditions into the big ceremony as well!

Enjoy this peek at this elegant New York City wedding!

Atlanta Courthouse Elopement | Lindsay & Phil | NYC Wedding Photographer | MD Wedding Photographer

Lindsay & Phil have an epic and inspiring love story. They love each other so deeply everyone else can feel it. They are patient and gentle with each other, and you can tell from a mile away that they are each others' biggest cheerleaders. 

They met in a bar on Valentine's Day and two days later, Phil went back to the UK where he lived. They created a long distance friendship that turned into a long distance relationship. 

Lindsay secured a spot in a Masters Degree program in London and they were finally able to actually be together. 

When Lindsay's visa time was up she had to come back to the US and after many many long months, Phil moved to Atlanta, GA to be with her. 

Traveling to Atlanta to photograph their marriage was such an amazing experience and truly reminded me what this job is all about. It's not about frills or big parties or tons of guests, but it's really about joining two people's lives together. Their courthouse ceremony was one of the sweetest I've witnessed.

I've probably said it thousands of times but small weddings and elopements are my fav. 

Bromo-Seltzer Tower Engagement Photos| Emily & Brian | NYC Wedding Photographer | MD Wedding Photographer

Emily & Brian chose to have their engagement session at one of my bucket list locations, the Bromo Seltzer Tower! 

So few people know about this Baltimore gem. I didn't for a long time! This clock tower overlooks some of Baltimore's main attractions like Camden Yards, but going up to the top inside is a rare treat!

After the arts tower we met their sweet fur baby on Federal Hill for some more shots. Take a look and enjoy! 

Pond View Farm Wedding | Liz & Josh | NYC Wedding Photographer | Maryland Wedding Photographer

Liz and Josh got married on the most gorgeous April Saturday. Their details were perfectly planned, Pond View Farm provided a beautiful backdrop, and their love for each other was precious as can be. 

I loved being a part of this special day and witnessing these two FINALLY getting married! They have been together pretty much forever and this day was anxiously awaited, and hopefully everything they ever dreamed of.
