• Ryan + Laura

As soon as we met Ryan during their engagement session, I knew that this was going to be an entertaining wedding day! Ryan is hilarious!! He had people laughing throughout the whole event and even though Laura sometimes has to reign him in a little bit, I think that’s one of the things she loves most about him. Ryan is the type of guy that could make ANYTHING fun! These two are a perfect match because Laura is so laid back!! Their personalities compliment each others so perfectly!! The more time I spent around this sweet couple, the more I loved them! There’s just something about how Ryan looks at her that makes your heart melt. They are such an amazing couple and you’ll definitely be able to see how just much they adore each other through their images!! As a photographer, that’s a dream couple!! I love photographing couples whose love is so outwardly evident!!

Thinking back about Ryan and Laura’s day, I have so many favorite moments! I LOVED her coral COACH heels, I loved meeting their sweet families but most of all, I loved watching them get so excited as they were recessing down the aisle and realized… “Wait! We’re MARRIED!!”. In a matter of minutes, their worlds came together officially!! I vividly remember Ryan walking down the aisle doing fist pumps because he was just SO EXCITED to have Laura as his wife!! I loved their portrait time and their amazing attitudes throughout the whole day but that’s not the best part….one the BEST moments of the day (besides their vows) was when the Baltimore Raven’s mascot surprised them on the dancefloor!!! Their reaction was priceless!!!

Ryan and Laura, you had an incredible day full of so much life, excitement and laughter! Michael and I LOVED working with you two and we also LOVED working with Shaina and Mike again!! Working with great vendors makes me so HAPPY! They are such a hard working team! But they BLEW us away today when they emailed us a special surprise for Laura and Ryan….. their teaser video is ready!!!! What?! It’s only been 72 hours since the wedding!! That’s impressive! So please, take a peak at not only their images, but their teaser as well! Enjoy!!!
