Last week on the blog, I shared Samantha and Eric’s wedding at Loyola Blakefield High School Chapel. You can see those photos here. After their wedding, Samantha and Eric held a beautiful reception! Check out their Hunt Valley Country Club wedding photos below.
While guests nibbled on appetizers and cheese plates, Samantha, Eric and their wedding party shot their wedding photos overlooking the rolling hills of the countryside just north of Washington, DC.
For most weddings between March and September, I recommend couples take photos twice during the day. “What?!?” you may ask. “I don’t want to be away from my guests for so long.”
I totally understand. These two photo sessions actually give you MORE time with your guests. I suggest 30 minutes of photos for the couple either during the first look or cocktail hour. Then, I recommend taking 5-1o minutes at the end of dinner to take shots at sunset. You’ll get 30 minutes of cocktail hour, and because you are served first, your guests won’t miss you if you leave at the end of dinner. They’ll be eating.
And the light is so different! Here is the light about 6pm.
And then, at sunset. So, so pretty and different!
After finishing their photos on the greens, the reception began! A chic affair with tuxes and ballgowns with undertones of calla lilies, purples, and …Terps.
Samantha and Eric are both graduates of the University of Maryland. You can see their engagement photos on the University of Maryland campus here.
The glass wall of windows make Hunt Valley Country Club wedding photos perfect for the natural-light loving bride (and photographer!). The window wall allows you to have natural light and bring in the rolling hills and golf course while still protecting you from the elements.
