Brittany & Eric | Eastern Shore Wedding Photographer

Last Saturday, I drove to Chestertown on the gorgeous Eastern Shore of Maryland to photograph Brittany & Eric’s Farm Wedding! The forecast called for torrential downpours and we could see the clouds looming on the horizon throughout the entire afternoon… but by the grace of God – the rain held out until after the ceremony! The overcast conditions made for soft and romantic photographs that made for one very happy wedding photographer!

Brittany and Eric two of the most genuine and unbelievably sweet people that I’ve ever worked with! As Brittany was getting ready, there were multiple moments when she would start to talk about the love of her life… and tears gently fell from her eyes. The joy and friendship between these two is truly inspiring! Their love for the Chesapeake Bay and the Eastern Shore was reflected in every aspect of the wedding day… Shotgun shell bouts, nautical invitations + details, and a rustic meets preppy feel that is authentically Maryland!

Brittany & Eric – It was such an honor to photograph this day for you! Congratulations newly weds!

As Brittany began to get emotional talking about how excited she was to marry Eric…
One of her bridesmaids swooped in to dry her tears. This is what it’s all about. Moments like this.
