Elkridge Club Wedding

Dennis tells us, “Rig and Danielle are an interesting match and a great example of opposites attracting. She is a real Montana cowgirl, while he is the scion of an old Baltimore family, but they get along like crabs and Old Bay seasoning! (in case you’re not from the Mid-Atlantic, that means they get along great!)”

“The ceremony was held on a beautiful Fall day at the Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore. Afterwards, we got outside for some quick portraits in the last light of the day. Just as I began to do Rig and Danielle’s portraits, a blaze of amber light burst from behind the clouds, sending me into an excited (and productive) photo-frenzy.”

“Afterwards we all headed to the reception, held at the Elkridge Club. A former fox hunting club once in the outskirts of old Baltimore, the Elkridge Club is now very much inside of the city — but still surrounded by beautiful grounds and now a golf course. Guests enjoyed cocktails overlooking the 9th hole as the sun sunk beneath the horizon and the band starting tuning up their instruments.”

“Much merriment ensued, beautiful cowgirls danced with dapper young lawyers, the bride and groom were both well-roasted in some hilarious wedding speeches, and the guitarist played at amazing speed with the guitar held behind his head. All in all, a night to remember for all!”

Daniel tells us, “Let me take you on a biking adventure in the next few minutes. And not any kind of adventure, but one that has a happy ending. You get the sarcasm here right? I’m far from talented when it comes to English writing. Stay for the photos maybe?”

Belmont Plateau Engagement Session

“I’ve had some luck this season with the weather but adding a super sweet couple like Caity and Dave just blew my expectations away for a chilly fall afternoon at Belmont Plateau, Philadelphia.”

“They rode bikes, read to each other on a picnic blanket, opened champagne and even impersonated Red Ridding Hood, if Dave would’ve agreed to play the big bad wolf. All of this under the beautiful backdrop of the Philadelphia skyline, transforming every minute into a gorgeous red hot sunset.”

Topsail Island Engagement Session

Nicole tells us, “Nick’s grandfather was a marine at camp Lejeune when he met Nick’s grandmother, a local from Wilmington. Years later Nick’s family bought a vacation home in Topsail and have been visiting since Nick was a little boy. Nick first took me to Topsail a year into our relationship and I immediately fell in love with the place. Since we have decided to get married in my hometown of Aiken, SC, we choose Topsail for our engagement session because it holds such a special place in both of our hearts. We couldn’t be more thrilled with how the photos turned out! We will cherish them and those sweet memories from that day for a lifetime! Thanks a million to Eric for capturing our love so beautifully.”
