I was very happy to be shooting with Sam Hurd again. Katherine and Jonathan tied the knot last year at the Baltimore Museum of Art, which is a happy three blocks down the street from my very best friend. I had an easy commute that night. They rented out Gertrude’s, a lovely restaurant located inside the museum. We got to use the sculpture gardens for pictures. It was pretty much an incredibly awesome day.
And once again, can I just say that the light at the Hotel Monaco in Baltimore is gorgeous, beautiful, stunning, unending. I love love love shooting getting ready there. I need to rent it out for some boudoirs.
We scooted to the Baltimore Museum of Art to do first look and portraits and things.
And I am in no way trying to take credit for this, I just think it’s so cool. There was this metal sculpture with a small opening – a slit, really – in it. Sam saw that and shot Katherine and Jonathan through the little hole – but it made such an awesome effect in the lens. I had to try it out myself and this is what happened. So neat, right!?
They held the ceremony outdoors in the ridiculous afternoon sunshine.
I fell in love with this venue. There’s a little fountain that separates the ceremony from the guests and you have to walk over those three stepping stones in the middle to get to the altar. They had a sound system so you could hear everything – but it made for an incredible visual and it also had this really nice stage effect, even though they weren’t elevated. I dug it so much.
Is there anything cuter than the two moms hugging?
Such a great wedding. Congratulations to the bride and groom and thanks again to Sam for having me out!
