Happy Anniversary Wedding The Barn at Lighthouse Inn | Harper's Ferry, WV USA
It was a little over a year ago we had the pleasure of shooting Kayla and Bryce's wedding. This is more of a special post because Kayla had reached out to us early on and despite having a small collection of wedding photos to our name she was really looking forward to us shooting their wedding for them. Perhaps it is on purpose we've decided to present their wedding a year later because it was one of those memories that, looking back, shows you how close these two are. Their wedding was calm and relaxed with no worries to care for - although there slightly was the added pressure of shooting the wedding of a professional photographer's daughter.
We hope you enjoy some of our favorites from their big day. Happy Anniversary (x2) you guys. I definitely felt like part of the family shooting this.
We're excited to bring you our engagement session with Rosa and Nick. We recently took a stroll through Georgetown to take some casual pictures but managed to take a few more than that. After months of planning, booking, and having a fun engagement session photographed a few weeks back, we are looking forward to their wedding this weekend! We hope you enjoy some of our favorites.
A few months back we got a message from Stratis inquiring about our wedding photography. Although it was early in the process a few weeks pass before we were finally able to finalize everything a week before the wedding - as well as photography their engagement session the day before!
We embraced the crowds, enjoyed some cherry blossoms, and stayed warm. The session was definitely fun but what makes it even more enjoyable was photographing their beautiful personalities. Stratis knows how to make Yuko laugh making them too easy too photograph. What we really admire was their commitment to have their first kiss on their wedding day!
Without further ado we've put together a few of our favorites from both sessions. We know the families have been waiting patiently to these so please enjoy.
Countdown to the Big Day Historic Main Street | Ellicott City, Maryland USA
We are 50 days and counting until Brittany and Kurt's big day! From the moment we met I just knew they were going to amaze us. Their love for one another is so real and natural that it seemed they were posing for the camera before they even came out of the bag. Although our session was somewhat shortened by the cold we were able to take in the beautiful historic district of Ellicott City (where they had their first date). We are really excited for the wedding but for now enjoy a few of our favorites.
Love All Around Overhills Mansion | Catonsville, MD USA
What we love most about weddings is capturing the joy and love throughout the day between a couple. If you remember their engagement session from last season you'll notice Asia and Vernon's love for one another is authentic and being there on their wedding to capture their joy was absolutely a treasure. From the wonderful decors at the venue to the little details throughout the day that made their wedding fun and filled with emotion we are pleased to provide a few of our favorites from the wedding. Enjoy.
Up, Up and Away Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center | Chantilly, VA USA
We are less than a week away from Viv and Sean's big day. A couple weekends ago we went out to to the Air and Space Museum in Northern Virginia to take a flight back to where Viv and Sean had one of their first dates. This is a special blog post for us because not only are Viv and Sean a wonderful couple but Viv is Ronald's dear cousin. We've grown together all our lives and it brings us nothing but joy to see this wonderful couple take it to the next level up. Enjoy some of our favorite photos from our session.
Backyard Celebration Private Residence | Pikesville, MD USA
We are happy to bring you Krystal and Glen's wedding. This is a major one for us for a few reasons. For one, they are an absolutely amazing couple and it was a blast shooting their engagement session in Baltimore just days before the wedding. The weather was perfect and the setting was truly unique. Krystal's cousin was gracious to provide her home and backyard for the wedding. With most "traditional" weddings most of us experience an all out vendor curated event. What makes this wedding special is the help of family friends putting this celebration together with perfection to give it the right level of personalization.
What we love most about this wedding is there was no stress to be found anywhere. Krystal and Glen's personalities are truly fun making laughter and smiles look way too easy. As mentioned this is a very special event for us. Krystal and Glen, who live in New York, had somewhat a difficult time finding a photographer but we both can agree that our paths crossed for a reason. We're glad it worked out as we both found out we that we share the same spiritual beliefs as Seventh-Day Adventists. This wedding truly represents what a simple, but elegant, wedding should be like. We know the wait has been long but we hope you enjoy some of our favorites from the wedding.
The Couple that Rides Together. Part II Crowne Plaza | Annapolis, MD USA
This is officially our introductory post for 2017 and yes its long overdue. It has definitely been a while since we last blogged and ultimately it has turned out to be intentional. Starting this year's blog with Lane and Donovan's Wedding has been a highly anticipated one and actually carries a special sentiment for us. For the past three years Bello Image was simply an idea in the making. More notably shooting weddings also wasn't something we even seriously considered. But as faith would have it Ronald's cousin called out of the blue one day to see if we could shoot her best friend's wedding. After thinking it over for a few days, we truly believed that capturing moments of love and happiness was something we would do. And here we are with our very first booked wedding.
On to the main event. If you remember Lane and Donovan's Engagement session from last year you'll recognize their love and happiness instantly. Their wedding was lights out fantastic and you know a great party is happening when it lasts all night. We just love a wedding filled with joy, laughter, and tears. We would also like to take this time to extend our condolences to Donovan's family who suffered the loss of his cousin, John, last year in a motorcycle accident. Ride in Peace.
We hope you enjoy some of our favorites from their amazing wedding with amazing family and friends. Best wishes to you two.
Wedding in the Woods Thorpewood Inc | Thurmont, MD USA
If you remember a few weeks back we shot Maru and Chris's Engagement and they were so fun to be around. We just knew their wedding was going to be full of joy and laughter. What we saw from their engagement session was just a small sample of what was to come. Chris is one of the most down to earth and humorous people I've come across and Maru laughs and smiles at almost everything. Their personalities were such a delight to capture.
Their wedding was truly fantastic. The setting at ThorpeWood was magical and simply breathtaking. Maru and Chris's wedding were filled with personality and lots of it! We hope you enjoy just some of the photos from their magical day in the woods.
