Amy and Marc June 29th Wedding Photography Visual Recap at Bohemia River Overlook
Aug 3, 2018 | By: Josh Barry Photography
Easy going! Fun! Beautiful! Harley the Dog! Those are the first four things that come to mind when I think about my day I spent with Amy and Marc on their wedding day. The weather was great, the setting was magnificent, and the people were the best!
Amy and I met through one of my favorite DJ/Entertainment companies I have had the privilege of getting to party with at many events; Julian at Limelight Event Group. After meeting with Amy and Marc I was excited once I heard about the venue. As a new resident to Bel Air, MD I have yet to photograph at many venues in North East Maryland and the surrounding areas. I am used to All Points Baltimore and South and also Virginia. So I was excited to hear this was at the Bohemia River Overlook. This would be my first time there and I feel so happy with what I was able to capture.
Amy and Marc decided to do a first look for their wedding. This, to me, is a trend I love seeing become more and more common among brides and grooms. It makes for wonderful storytelling when swiping through your portraits from your wedding day. Also, it's a perfect intimate moment that gets to be shared privately between just them (and maybe the bridal party as on-lookers too). You get to really enjoy the last few moments as an unmarried couple before the ceremony. You get to embrace each other and take time for some very genuine emotive photographs. Each one is always different. It's a special moment that really sets the tone for the day. This is also great because we do the first look early enough where we leave time left over for artistic bridal portraits as well as family formals that way they don't have to be done after the ceremony.
During the portraits I got a great sense of how fun these two are and how much they care about each other. I love how they brought their dog, Harley for a few special cameos in their portraits and party photographs.
Special thanks to The Twisted Vine Wedding and Event Florals. I did a walkthrough at the Venue the day before the wedding and noticed that the venue had a swing hanging from the tree right near the water in front of their vineyard. I thought to myself, "how beautiful it would be if this were decorated with flowers and use it for portraits." So last minute we call The Twisted Vine and ask her if she can bring some flowers to decorate the swing. Despite our last minute request, as you can see below, she came through perfectly.
