  2019, Wow. What a freakin’ ride. When I look back at this year, I kind of have to laugh. Starting this year, my word of the year was “Rest”. I did anything but rest. I came in from 2018 pretty worn down from my biggest year yet so, I raised my prices and vowed […]

A Year in Review 2019 | Destination Wedding Photographer Kir Tuben | Personal Post

What could be a better addition to an engagement shoot than a new puppy!? Vince got Nicole this darling pupper as a gift; he gave Nicole the collar first and she was utterly confused until she saw Zeppelin! These two actually live in Chicago but traveled back home to Maryland for a friend’s wedding. While […]

Annapolis Engagement Session | Maryland Wedding Photography | Nicole and Vince

Shira & Brian are the sweetest pair. Their love is super natural and they both have a casual spirit about them that I love. We decided to snap engagement photos in one of their favorite places: Baltimore. These two got to love this city and it’s where their relationship blossomed. They would spend time walking around the waterfront and enjoying good food and scenic sunsets together. What a better way to celebrate your relationship than to commemorate your favorite spots together.

Baltimore Engagement Session | Rawlings Conservatory Engagement Session | Shira and Brian

I swear it, Alex and Alyse have the BEST LUCK with photos! We walked to their favorite little pier in Baltimore only to find a historic boat show passing through! The rain held out for us as we heard cannons firing off in the distance! We ended our session at their favorite Ice Cream store, Baltimore Licks, where we got perfect parking and a lot of treats!

Every year, I have couples ask me where to tie the knot! To try to help out, I decided to make a list about the Best DC Wedding Locations and it was such a hit that I decided to turn it into a little series. Here are my favorite rustic Northern Virginia Wedding Venues and below are my favorite Maryland wedding venue favorites:

Best Maryland Wedding Venues | Maryland Wedding Photographer | Couples Education

I know what you’re thinking.. ‘These are the raddest engagement photos ever.’ Given my long history with this bride, I knew her engagement photos would be less than typical and super creative/fun. Jen & Perry wanted photos out of the ordinary ‘nuzzling in a park’. A costume engagement just fits them so perfectly.

Costume Engagement Session | Medieval Engagement Photos | Jen and Perry

Well, it FINALLY happened.. I had a couple select this dream location for their engagement photos! CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE THIS PLACE EXISTS!? Jess and Zimri are my idea of the perfect clients- adventurous, hilarious and super in love. When I suggested the inside of a clocktower, they jumped at the chance to explore someplace new.

Every year, I have a handful of Baltimore brides looking for engagement locations. I have comprised a list of my favorite Virginia, DC and Bucket-List locations so it would only make sense that I would create a Baltimore list! Here are my favorite places to shoot engagement sessions in Maryland.

Baltimore Engagement Locations | Couples’ Education

Dana contacted me a few months ago about capturing her and Malcom’s wedding.. she actually found me through a Charm City Wed feature! This couple was extremely adorable and it really felt like hanging out with old friends. Malcom was cracking Dana up the whole session-even as we fought through the spring snow! Yes, that’s right, I said “spring snow”. They were both such troopers for our sunrise session at Fells Point in Baltimore. Good thing this pair likes the cold!
