Amy + Alan's classic ballroom wedding at the Belvedere Hotel | Baltimore fine art wedding photography

You guys, these people. This wedding. It's the ultimate compliment when you photograph a gorgeous wedding, and then a few months later, the bride's little sister and maid of honor reaches out to you because she's engaged. That's exactly what happened when I captured Allie + Elliot's wedding at Le Meridien, and then Amy + Alan called to say they were getting married in Baltimore. I didn't need to know anything else -- sign. me. up.

Of course, there's so much more to say than that about Amy + Alan. They're both brilliant, amazing people, and they got married not far from their beautiful home in the heart of Baltimore, just a few weeks before moving to Chicago for Amy to start law school. Baltimore has a host of amazing places to get married, but Amy + Alan chose a stunner: the beautiful, storied Belvedere Hotel. Alan's parents got married there -- so it was extra special to be able to honor that memory, while creating new memories of their own.

Amy started the day at the Marriott Hotel in Inner Harbor with her bridal party. A fellow tall girl, she wore the most gorgeous lacy BHLDN gown, and looked like a queen. Tall, blonde, and gorgeous runs in this family.
