I'm always flattered when a fellow photographer chooses me to capture their wedding day. I mean, it's like the highest compliment in our industry. When Kendra first contacted me I mistakenly thought she was inquiring for someone else and we had a series of texts where I was completely oblivious. I was super excited when I realized my blunder and it was in fact for her and Kevin's wedding ceremony. She's an excellent photojournalist and documentary photographer. I hope I did their day justice.
It's kind of an inside joke how long we've been trying to schedule this family session. Calendar conflicts, inclement weather, a year long hiatus. Yet, somehow we managed to pick a near perfect day where Centennial Park was not overrun with family picnics, joggers and cyclists. They do not even look like they are suffering in the ninety degree heat. How is that possible? I don't know about you but I think it was worth the wait. This session turned out beautifully.
I've worked for the Maryland Department of Commerce for several years now documenting their business and entrepreneurial programs. This was by far the largest event I've covered. This all day summit featured speakers from all over the state who have a vested interest in bringing business to Maryland, with key note speakers Arne Sorenson, President and CEO of Marriott International, John Harbaugh, Head Coach of the Baltimore Ravens and of course our Governor Larry Hogan. It was an incredibly long day and a bit challenging running from room to room during the breakout sessions but I think I managed to create a pretty comprehensive visual display of the days events. As the slogan says "Maryland is Open for Business".
