Betsy and John’s wedding was held in Baltimore, during one of the hottest Junes on record. I traveled from 73° San Diego, to the scorching Baltimore heat for their beautiful wedding. I arrived early the week before their wedding for a few other photoshoots, and the temperature fluctuated from the mid 90s and up into the 100s the whole week. On the morning of their wedding the temperature was already 101° at 11:00am as I drove towards the hotel where John and his groomsmen would be getting ready when my iPhone rang. It was John, touching base with me to make sure I would be at the hotel, and to know what he needed to do. I explained that I would be just photographing him with his guys hanging out before they got ready for the wedding. He told me they were just sitting around the pool and I was excited about getting to photography him and his guys just relaxing … all except for the 101° and wearing all black while photographing him and the guys hanging out in the pool. Then he said … and I quote “do you want a bathing suit?” Yes Please!!! What a fantastic way to start their wedding day for both him and his guys as well as me. I jumped in the pool, and grabbed my cameras while John, his groomsmen, the ringbearers and other family members swam, hung out and played in the pool. Meanwhile, Betsy and her girls were getting ready at her parents house where I arrived a couple hours later to get the last touches, details and then some portraits of her and her girls before heading to the church. Their wedding was held at the beautiful St. Borromeo catholic church in Pikesville just outside of Baltimore. After the ceremony, their guests headed to the Greyrock Mansion, just a few miles away for the rest of the evening which was filled with fun toasts by Betsy’s Maid of Honor and John’s brother serving as best man as well as dancing … dancing … dancing … this group can dance and my buddy DJ Jacob Jensen with Absolute Entertainment rocked it and kept the dance floor packed! It was a truly great and fun night for me, and everyone there.
