March 13, 2020 Fearless in 2020! | Award Winning Wedding Photography in Baltimore

We're just about a month shy of the one year anniversary of this post, where I announced that I had been awarded my first ever Fearless Award.

I am super pumped to share this session on the blog today! For years I've seen photographer friends post pictures from Rawling's Conservatory and I've been interested to check it out and put my own spin on things. It's pretty fun to have the challenge of a small space and making something creative of it. Then add on two people who have as much fun and chemistry as Rachel and Colleen and you've got the makings of a pretty fantastic...
