veronica + edward: happily ever after… {maryland wedding photographer}

You might have remembered Veronica & Edward from their engagement session last Fall. The big day finally came and what a beautiful day it was!

 

 

 

 

Veronica’s maid of honor wasn’t able to make the wedding (she just had a baby :) ) but was able to skype in that day.

Congratulations Veronica & Edward! Wishing you all the best!

krystal & brad courthouse wedding {ellicott city wedding photographer}

Krystal and Brad had known each other a few years before they actually started dating. Their friendship grew into a strong bond and adoration for one another. After a few years of dating, they decided to take the next step into marriage. Being their second marriages, both Krystal and Brad wanted to keep the wedding small and intimate with just family and headed to the Courthouse in Ellicott City for the ceremony.

I absolutely love the historic structure of the courthouse and we managed to capture a few photos pre-ceremony outside. Good thing we did since it started to rain right after the ceremony :)

 

 

 

The judge presiding over the ceremony did such a wonderful job! She was sincere in her words which made the ceremony more intimate.

 

 

After the ceremony, we headed to Hunan Manor in Columbia. Hunan Manor is one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in the Maryland area!

 

 

On my drive to the restaurant, I envisioned a shot of the Krystal and Brad next to the beautiful fish tank at the restaurant. I had to enlist the help of Krystal’s daughter, Jasmine, to get this shot using some off camera video lighting. :) Love how the colors just POP!

We were limited on space in the restaurant so I decided to use the interesting textures of our surroundings to capture some classic and timeless images. I had to move a few tables and chairs but managed to get the shots I was looking for.

 

Congratulations Krystal & Brad! Wishing you a long life of happiness and good fortune ;)
