Baltimore Maryland Wedding Photographer

Laine and Matt were married yesterday at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis. I love weddings with flower girls and ring bearers because they are a reflection of what the bride and groom may have been as children compared with one of the most important moments in the adult life. Congratulations Laine and Matt!

Lit up like the Fourth...but it was the Fifth. We played with sparklers in the yard, writing with the falling light. Shay isn't so fond of the loud noise of fireworks if you couldn't tell by his body language in the Shay shot below. If you have a digital SLR and would like to achieve images like this, it is pretty simple. Set a tripod. Shoot on bulb---"B". Open the shutter by pressing the actuator and close the shutter by releasing it when you have finished writing your word. You can also do an internet search for "light painting". Have fun!

Happy July Fourth!! Nate and I have been pretty into this documentary lately: http://www.history.com/shows/america-the-story-of-us

The show makes me so proud to be American....free and brave, a trailblazing spirit, a creative who thinks beyond what is into what can be, one who thrives on improvisation, one who may find struggle despite seeking fortune and lives through it having found the truest goldmine--strength. Today, look around you. Find beauty in that which has been built by the generations before us as well as what nature remains in the land of hope and opportunity that we call America.

An intimate affair. Personal touches everywhere and so many details I had a REALLY tough time choosing any photos for the blog post--they are all magnificent. Joy is a friend of mine and let me in so close on her wedding day I almost felt like Photographer of Honor. Congratulations Joy and Clint on getting hitched and sharing such love for one another!!!!!!!!!

So funny to find myself in Pittsburgh again this year enjoying brunch on a Sunday at the Grand Concourse with hubby, mother in law, and my 3 week old!!!! What a way to wind down and enjoy the area after shooting this lovely Catholic ceremony in downtown Butler, PA. Beautiful weather, beautiful bride. Don't hesitate to contact me if your wedding includes a drive. I LOVE the change in scenery!This bride had a special interest in 1940s, sepia tone, tradition as well as trendy casual.

Rewind It Back: Sara & Aaron are Engaged!

Since I am far behind in sharing photos on my blog, I will be adding in photos from the shoots I missed as well as the shoots I have taken on in the coming weeks. Here is an engagement shoot taken in my new favorite location which Nate found for me while driving the boys around. It is so close to home, and so full of opportunity for shooting in a variety of backgrounds. I love the variety of styles here.

I don't know what you did with your extra hour today, but this lady went the extra mile and made a blog post after a nice shoot in Centennial Park this afternoon! YES! For those of you have been wondering why Amanda Arnold and It Flies By had dropped of the Blogger radar, I have two words that I hope can excuse my lack of attention to faithful readers and possibly even admirers??...FIRST TRIMESTER! That's right!!! The Arnold family will welcome a brand new baby in May. Thank you for your patience while I spent the last several months in the joys of continuous nausea and fatigue. I hope to play a little catch up to fill in the gaps of my online journal with weddings and portraits gone by as we spend the cold wintery months anxiously awaiting the arrival of New Baby!

Enough about me! The happy family above braved the biting cold breeze today for a family portrait. With a sweet front man in hunter orange and a thumb sucker with the eyes of Cindy Lou Who, my heart was warmed enough to have shot for hours! Thank for coming out!

Cherish Every Moment. It Flies By.

Lisa is a very great firend of mine. She and her family have graced the pages of my blog since day one. If you have followed since then, you have seen her babies (little blonde girls)grow alongside my own, and similarly celebrate occasions both small as well as momentous with photos. In the coming weeks, Lisa will have her third child: her first son. Three babies in four years is a tough tough job, and there is no one out there who will think Lisa is crazy for the thought that this may be her last baby belly. So, we left work early today to make a lasting image for her to have forever...cause I bet she wont have stretch marks to remind her either (not that I am salty). So, here we go into the woods and down a hillside path, into a revine, over a fence, across the rocks, to where we settled by a fallen tree. I'm carrying about 10 lbs of photo equipment. She's carrying about 5 lbs of baby boy. Mud, muck, and muggy weren't captured by the camera, nor were the work shoes sitting on the rocky riverside. The pictures came out just as I had hoped. She is a goddess.

This was It Flies By's very first wedding. Nate and I shot it together on his birthday at Pittsburgh's National Aviary. I am thankful for a lot of things. I am thankful for Stephanie and Jasper's trust in my work and my professional eye. Nate and I had scouted out the area in the hours before the ceremony choosing the best places to take pictures. We overlooked some areas that may have seemed the most scenic like a delicate bridge over water, and favored a nook in an iron fance, and a walking bridge over railroad tracks. I am thankful for the chance to witness two wonderful people come together and share with me the moments they have chosen to share with their closest family and friends. I hope this is my first wedding of many more to come. And for Stephanie and Jasper the first day of many more to come. Thank you!
