Worth the Wait!: Baltimore, MD Wedding Photographer

It was such an incredible honor to document this wedding. The love these two share is incredible. They have been engaged since 2009 and this year, 7 years from the date of their first date and six years from the date of their engagement, they were married in front of family and friends. It was an absolutely beautiful wedding at Pier 5. Seriously, a Pinner’s dream. You have to check out some of the cool things they did.

Crystal and Michele, it was a true honor to document your day. I am so happy for both of you. Finding true love and the person that you know will be by your side forever and always, no matter what obstacles try to get in your way is a true gift!

I hope you love your sneak peek!




PS: I asked this sweet couple a few questions so that we could all get to know them better.How did you two meet?

We met at work, Michele was Crystal’s Dispatcher at the Maryland State Police Annapolis Barrack


What was your favorite moment(s) from the wedding?

Spending it with our friends and family and just being Happy!!


How would you describe your overall wedding experience?

It was everything we wanted it to be.  We planned it in less than 10 months and it went by faster than we thought it would.  But wouldn’t change a single detail!!!


What advice would you offer to other couples planning a wedding?

To live each day with each other like it’s your last!!!!  Always compromise on things….life is never promised.


What were you most anxious, nervous or fearful about regarding your wedding day and what was the outcome?

So I (Michele) had a nightmare the night before the wedding about the hotel staff re-arranging all our decorations for the wedding, so the next morning Crystal had to go and check everything to make sure it was in place.   The main thing that kept Michele anxious or nervous about was that every detail was what she wanted and perfect and that the guests would love it!!  Crystal on the other hand was not nervous or anxious about anything even up to the very last minute!!


What’s one piece of advice you would give to other couples for planning their wedding?

To go with the flow, things are bound to happen and you can’t control them when they do.  Just roll with day and enjoy it, it goes by so fast!!  It’s your day and no one else’s, so don’t let them ruin it and enjoy every minute of it J
