Working as DC wedding photographers means we also regularly photograph engagements and weddings in and around Baltimore. So if you are planning a wedding in the Charm City, we are more than ready to make the drive up to help you document it! Having already photographed dozens of marriage celebrations in that part of the broader Washington metro area, we are intimately familiar with many of its venues. There are a lot of great places in which you and your intended can celebrate your marriage event. Even better (at least in our opinion!) are all the beautiful spots in which your DC wedding photographers can take unforgettable pictures of you!
Of all of those great locations for photo shoots, though, one clearly stands out. One of the best places in which to take couples portraits in Baltimore is, without question, the city’s famous Inner Harbor. Every couple who has asked us to document their Charm City nuptials has requested pictures of themselves together in the part of the city that curls around a bend in the Patapsco River. One couple even had their wedding ceremony itself on the promenade that runs along the edge of the river!
The reasons why the Inner Harbor is a great option for your wedding are pretty obvious, in our professional opinion. The waterfront area is full of beautiful spots in which you and your future spouse can enjoy your first hours of matrimony while you have breathtaking pictures taken of them. We can pose you near Baltimore’s world-famous National Aquarium. Or we can take pictures of you just steps from the water on the part of the promenade that runs through West Shore Park. Or we can do your couples portraits in front of the Maryland Science Center. Or we can take advantage of one of the best views of downtown Baltimore across the harbor on Federal Hill. No matter which place we choose, the portraits that we create for you on your wedding day look fantastic.
The best part about taking your wedding pictures in the Inner Harbor area, though, is the fact that we do not even need many of these notable locations to be able to produce unforgettable couples portraits. There is so much going on in the Inner Harbor on a beautiful summer or fall afternoon that the entire area is alive with energy and vibrancy. There are families walking around enjoying ice cream. There are street performers plying their craft. There are a million visually interesting stories playing out in the Inner Harbor at any given time, which makes it very easy to find creative settings for the couples portraits that we take.
Creativity was definitely in the air when we took the picture featured here! We were walking with these newlyweds near the USS Constellation, the last sail-only ship built by the U.S. Navy, when we found a large tube that was part of an ongoing construction project. We could not resist the chance to try some fun and different portraiture and asked the new husband and wife to climb in. To their credit, they were great sports and agreed immediately. We love the resulting images, because the tube creates a sense of intimacy and privacy that is perfect for presenting two people who are in love visually and photographically.
