Not only did we focus on a bold color science but we also played with different textures. Habitats venue has a beautiful dark wooden floor and white brick walls that we accented with black paint splattered balloons. Large potted tropical plants also decorated the venue along with authentic floral arrangements by The Rogue Petal Co. The couple’s outfits were also carefully chosen for this shoot. the Groom wore an emerald tailor-made suit from Shaw’s Covenant with gold accents and inserts. The Bride wore a lustrous white gown from Garnish Boutique and a custom crystal crown by Bridal Styles Boutique. She also wore hand made jewelry and hair accessories from J’adorn and a Ruby ring flanked by 2-carat pear diamonds. Our table was decorated by Aeboni of Plan Accordingly Events and highlighted with healing crystals from Gdemae and hand-lettered paper goods by Coffee & Calligraphy. We included 14 local professional wedding vendors to help bring this vision to life and each vendor bought something uniquely made by hand to this event and allowed our couple to feel authentic and fearless.
Baltimore is not the dark and dingy city that some people make it out to be. In fact, this city holds a lot of creative and diverse charm. We are a husband and wife wedding photography team based in Baltimore, Maryland passionate about authentic experiences with diverse couples who are deeply in love. One of our mottos is “Live fearlessly” and we wanted to show a wedding that truly expresses that saying to inspire future couples. We paired Ruby and Emerald together, two bold contrasting colors together to bring on a dramatic and moody effect. Black and gold were used as a secondary color scheme to help accentuate the mood of the shoot. We wanted the Ruby and Emerald to pop so we chose a venue and decor that would allow this effect with the right natural lighting. For this shoot, we wanted to focus our attention on a bold and natural aesthetic in an industrial-chic space with a bride who’s not usually the center of the mainstream media’s attention, a black curvy tattooed bride.
