Maryland State House Engagement Session || Simply Picturesque

Looking for the perfect place to have an engagement session? Check out the Maryland State House in Annapolis. This engagement session brought to you by Simply Picturesque Photography, has it all. Fun, inspiring and full of character, we hope this gives you some ideas for your own upcoming engagement shoot.

The Look

Claudia wore an off the shoulder tee length cotton dress in a soft pink. It is ultra feminine and super cute. Finished with sandals, it creates a semi-casual look while still offering a fully styled appearance. Jeremy wore a button down polo shirt, dark jeans and clean brown loafers. Both their outfits were well pressed and in new condition. This is super important when picking out clothing for your engagement session! Having your clothes properly pressed and clean gives you the magazine style appearance for your photos.

The locations:

Starting out on the steps of the Maryland House, Claudia & Jeremy were able to capture some really cute images on the front steps of this beautiful building. The stunning green door served as a perfect backdrop for her BEAUTIFUL engagement ring. They continued to wander through the streets of Annapolis, taking some really cute shots. Claudia changed her outfit towards the end of the shoot and they were even able to share ice cream!

We hope you enjoy this adorable engagement session and a special thanks to Simply Picturesque Photogrpahy for sharing this couple’s engagement  session. Hopefully, we will get to see their wedding too!

The Bridal Look

The bride wore a  long sleeve, open back, crepe gown from Pronovias . The simple sheath gown features buttons along the arm and an bateau neckline. Simple and incredibly elegant, this gown shows off curves while remaining ultra feminine. If Grace Kelly were to wear a gown, this would be it. She finished the look with a chapel length veil trimmed in lace. She wore deep emerald shoes with vintage style diamond embellishments. Drop earrings complimented her hair which was swept back in an intricate bun worn at the nape of her neck.

The Groom’s Look:

The groom wore a beautifully tailored black suit with jacket. The suit was accented with a cranberry colored tie and socks. Cufflinks were a nod to any man who loves to play cards! His look is clean and simple. The boutonniere in a deep red set off the richness of the tie and finished the look perfectly.  His look is modern and clean, just as that of his bride.

Hampton Mansion Engagement Session || Sarah Botta Photogaphy

As we face the grey weather and semi cold temps, we decided to post something to remind us of warm and wonderful days. So, if you are busy recovering from or planning for the holidays, here is a mini escape for you.

This summertime engagement shoot was documented by Sarah Botta Photography and features two German Shephard Husky mix pups, a stunning engagement ring and the background of open fields and soft grasses. The session was held at Hampton Mansion in Towson Maryland. Enjoy these images!

The Style

The couple went for a clean style. The guy wore clean button down long sleeve shirt with khaki short. Note there are no pockets/pleats so he has a more finished style. Her look was a large floral pattern dress that is full length and ties at the side. The dark tones and structure of the sun dress work well. As a second look, she wore a cotton a symmetric dress that is soft and casual feel. Her nails are painted the preferred color of British royalty- baby pink. She opted out of shoes and went for the romantic barefoot look.

We love the natural look of this shoot. It is not overly styled, but the clothing choices are finished enough to allow for a clean and professional look to the images.  The pups were brought in to wear the save the date tags. We haven’t seen the wedding yet, but I am hoping the pups were part of it too. Dogs make everything better !

Thanks for checking out today’s post and come back soon to check out our next feature!

Industrial Chic Waterfont Wedding in Baltimore || Nikki Schell Photography

 

This wedding has a beautiful waterfront ceremony overlooking the Baltimore harbor and an industrial boho chic reception at the Frederick Douglass Museum in Baltimore. Feminine elements of swathes of greenery and florals of soft and light color tones in bohemian design added an earthy bohemian flair. The beautiful Baltimore wedding was photographed by Nikki Schell Photography. 

The Look

Her dress was a beautiful champagne colored Jenny Yoo Gown. The gown features a strapless sweetheart neckline with embellished with beaded appliqué of english ivy and silk organza. The bodice was a fit and flare silhouette that complements the feminine modern bride. The bridesmaids wore an assortment of blush chiffon Jenny Yoo dresses that, some boasting a soft floral pattern. The bride had a Man-0f-Honor who wore a light grey suit with a blush bowtie to match the ladies.

The groom and his groomsmen went for a traditional black tie look.  They all looked incredibly dapper in their property fitted  suits.

Invitations

The invitations are simple and clean. Torn edges and thick paper stock are the modern take on romantic bohemian style. The paper boasts a simple floral design and romantic oversized script font.

Ceremony

Their ceremony was absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful arch, the view of the Baltimore Harbor. The altar was composed of brass and wood, decorated with florals flanking both sides of the pointed arch.  Wood chairs were placed along the pier creating an isle and lending to a farmhouse feel while overlooking the iconic Baltimore Inner Harbor. The couple wrote their own vows, which made every single person shed a tear.

Reception

The reception space is a mix of historic Baltimore and Industrial chic. The space boasts worn brick, exposed warehouse style ceilings and large windows that overlook Baltimore. The site was styled with hanging greens, long farm tables which were overflowing with greens and flowers. The color scheme was classic white. The texture comes in from the mixed florals and greenery and the historic industrial elements of the space.
