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.
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.
Smooth Sailing Ahead Inner Harbor | Baltimore, MD USA
We're so glad that Krystal and Glen found us. They drove all the way from New York City to prepare for a wedding weekend extravaganza and running on a few hours of sleep we finally got to do our engagement session after months of hard work and planning. Glen loves boats and the perfect setting to find one sounded like Baltimore and we were certainly not disappointed.
Krystal and Glen made this shoot a breeze, literally. We had a short amount of time before sunset and the setting was gorgeous. This is, like the past 3 posts, another teaser session to preview what this fantastic couple's wedding will be like. They are a sweet couple with a bright future ahead. Please enjoy.
Walk Through Charm City Downtown Baltimore | Baltimore, MD USA
One of the things we love about engagement sessions is meeting new people. When you meet new people you get the opportunity to explore new cities. Although Baltimore about an hour away (without traffic) from us we don't get to truly enjoy what the city has to offer. They don't call it Charm City for nothing either. There couldn't have been a better way to spend the afternoon there with such a charming couple.
Asia and Vernon's fun energy made this shoot a delight. From exploring the infamous Dru Hill Park to hitting the blacktop by Federal Hill Park to shoot some hoops, this couple showcased what being from Charm City is about. This is just a preview of the wedding and we look forward to showing you those highlights in the next few weeks. Enjoy some of these charming moments from their session.
The Couple that Rides Together Lake Elkhorn Park | Columbia, MD USA & Thomas Dixon Observation Area | Glen Burnie, MD USA
This is really just a teaser post. Why? Not only did we capture Lane and Donovan's engagement session but we also shot their wedding a few weeks later. Their personalities are so right for one another and photographing them on two separate days was a thrill. I also got to vicariously live life through them as they rode their motorcycles around. Side note: there was a time when Ronald rode a motorcycle and I must admit there was a tad bit of envy developed.
We can't wait to show you the pics from the wedding as well. For now we hope you enjoy some of our favorite moments from these two.
