June 9, 2021 Christina + Dustin | Belvedere Wedding Photos | Baltimore, MD
Christina and Dustin were married this past weekend and their Belvedere Wedding was AMAZING!
From the couple: “We met in middle school through a friend but did not have regular interactions until our junior year in high school. We both enjoy video games and we had interest in one another but we were completely obvious about it. During our senior high school year we agreed to go on a date if Dustin managed to beat the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess under certain challenges. Dustin quickly completed the challenge and we began to go out.” Nearly ten years later Dustin proposed with their closest friends and family present at a restaurant in Philadelphia.
From my first email with Christina I already adored her. She’s got personality coming out of her pores. As soon as you meet her, you want to be her best friend. We chatted over Zoom first sans Dustin, and then had a second call a little later so he could meet me as well. Once I saw the two of them together, I immediately saw how much they adored each other and I knew that this day would be a treat. On the wedding day itself, Dustin told me that he was “spellbound” by Christina and couldn’t believe the day was finally there. Any time Dustin was mentioned throughout the morning, Christina would gush over how much she adored and loved him. To be so in love after more than 10 years, we should all hope to be so lucky!
Also, fun fact – I met up with Christina and Dustin a week before their wedding to do their “first look” and wedding portraits! We did this so they could maximize the time spent with their loved ones on the wedding day. Also, we were able to get a guestbook printed with those photos in time for the wedding and it was so neat seeing all of their guests gush over the photos when they signed the book! This post has a mix of a handful of portraits from the wedding day at the Belvedere and photos from our 2 hour session the week prior.
Without further ado, here are some of my favorites!
