Lauren + Andrey | Anchor Inn Wedding | Pasadena, Maryland

August 27, 2014 Lauren + Andrey | Anchor Inn Wedding | Pasadena, Maryland

I have been truly fortunate this year to have so many amazing couples who are more than just clients, but people that I genuinely care for and have turned into real friends. Lauren and Andrey are no exception to this! I knew that their wedding day would be a blast but I had no idea just how fun it would be! Andrey and Lauren have such an incredibly special love, and you can’t help but smile when you’re around these two! They are quite possibly the most in love most excited to be married couple I’ve ever had the chance to work with! Their love and excitement is palpable!

Despite the rainy weather forecast, we ended up having the perfect break in the rain, just long enough to get beautiful portraits with the most epic storm clouds. I couldn’t be more thrilled to share a little peek into their wedding day!

We started our day off for wedding day prep at the Hotel at Arundel Preserve. I loved being able to find a fun spot to hang up Lauren’s dress! I took way too many photos of it with this art wall, but for the sake of brevity here’s my favorite:

Meanwhile, down just one floor, Andrey was getting ready with the guys.

Their first look is so sweet!!

To anyone who thinks that doing a first look would ruin the ‘moment’ of seeing your bride walk down the aisle toward you – I beg to differ. <3 I just love these two.


Happiest couple ever? Quite possibly!


After the ceremony the rain cleared up just long enough to get these photos! As soon as we were wrapping up portraits of Andrey and Lauren, it started to drizzle and within minutes it was a downpour. So lucky!


How crazy are these skies?! Overcast stormy days (when it’s clear of course) make the most amazing photos!anchor-inn-wedding-lauren-andrey_0211anchor-inn-wedding-lauren-andrey_0212STOP it!

    Ahhh…..stormy skies!! What a perfect backdrop! The “models” B&G portrait is amazing….love the angle and feel of that one. But the last photo might be the best of all ;)
