Marell + Maria | Pasadena, MD Wedding Photographer

2017 found me photographing an incredible amount of weddings near water or on beaches and I loved every, single one of them. Marell and Maria’s Pasadena, MD wedding was held on a lovely waterfront and was so sweet and lovely and this light? THIS LIGHT. I want to be able to pack it in my camera bag and take it everywhere I go to work.

  • Another lesson in letting the babies do exactly what they want to do #babiesgonnababy
  • Your bridal party squad doesn't need to be huge (or even be a thing!). Surround yourself with people who love you and it will be okay.
  • Thankful to call this mama a friend. Extra thankful that she helped create this ridiculously cute baby that I get to snuggle. This job? Not without its perks, guys.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
