a baltimore love affair.
rita + patrick had the perfect baltimore wedding. since charm city is where they met and fell in love, it was the ideal place for their wedding. they had a very intimate ceremony on the water just outside of the baltimore museum of industry with 30 of their closest family + friends. afterwards, more guests joined the reception at the BMI to celebrate with the newly married rita + patrick.
i loved rita + patrick from the moment i met them. they are both genuinely kind, easy going, happy people. rita struck me as strong and smart (my two favorite qualities in a person!) and patrick had the most amazing and infectious smile. we bonded instantly over irish beer and stylish tennis shoes, and i knew i had to shoot their wedding. over the next few months i learned that rita might be the only person i know who works more than i do, and with our hectic schedules and the crazy springtime thunderstorms, shooting their engagement session proved to be impossible. i was disappointed (everyone knows how much i love and value engagement sessions!) but i was overjoyed when rita + patrick informed me that we would have 2+ hours to drive around baltimore before their wedding and take photos all over the city! since most of my couples give me approximately 8.5 minutes to take wedding photos (yes! very true!) i hardly knew what to do with myself i was so excited! from the harbor we jumped in the limo and toured the city – from mt vernon to fells point to canton square, we shot at their baltimore landmarks, some of my favorite places, and everyone’s favorite bar, nacho mama’s! it was so much fun, and i captured so many great candid portraits as we romped around town – an excellent prelude to a fabulous wedding!
the baltimore museum of industry was every bit as awesome as i knew it would be – best venue ever. the colors and the light were unreal, and the museum was open for guests (and photographers!) to explore. i loved everything about rita + patrick’s wedding – the excitement, the energy, and the emotion was high and tangible and i am so very happy they found each other and then found me! yay!
it should be noted that the diablo sandwich band seriously rocked the house. kudos to everyone in the band for being so talented, so fun and so amazingly photogenic! and of course, a hugemongous thanks to the uber-talented jessi ringer for joining me – as someone who never uses a second shooter i simply LOVE shooting with jessi! it’s basically like having a (crazier, in a good way!) extension of myself and i love seeing her take on the day – check out her work here!
rita + patrick: congrats! we loved being a part of your wedding day and are so happy for you both! WOOHOO!

Jaime, loved the pics–especially the one of the musician wearing the hat…nice work. And I love all the different vantage points you shoot from. You’re a girl who’s not afraid to get down!
