Amanda + Eric | George Peabody Library Wedding | Baltimore, MD

May 3, 2016 Amanda + Eric | George Peabody Library Wedding | Baltimore, MD

Ever since I first saw photos of the George Peabody Library in Baltimore, it has been at the top of my photography bucket list. I couldn’t wait to get my first opportunity to photograph at what was to me an all time dream venue. 

Enter Amanda and Eric. They were excited that I was so excited about the venue, and didn’t mind at all that I hadn’t worked there before. I knew I would be beyond ecstatic for my first Peabody wedding, no matter who the couple was. But only Amanda and Eric could make me even more excited about them. They’re the kind of people that are such a joy to be around that you never want to leave. They’re so sweet and wonderful, you can’t help but fall in love with them as a couple. Capturing their love has been such an honor, and I couldn’t be more excited to share the highlights from their wedding on the blog today!

There’s nothing better than the smell of old books and the celebration of love.

    Holy sh*t. This is HANDS DOWN my most favorite wedding of yours. Not only did you capture so much love, so much joy, and so much pretty, but you captured it in the most fantastically dramatic & creative way possible. It took me about ten minutes to go through this post, because I was just captivated by each and every image. Absolutely fantastic.

    I just… I can’t. I can’t even. All the can’t evens. I seriously cannot handle this wedding. At all. On any level. I am freaking.. the frick.. out. I just… I’m going to go now because I’m babbling and making no sense. This is so stunning, it is hurting me. I am in figurative physical pain from looking at this because it is just so everything. Everything-everything.

    I was hooked from the very first detail photos with the books, and then I was waiting to pick my all time favorite photo from this wedding, which ended up being every single one! So dramatic, creative, and gorgeous. Awesome job Brea!
