It was a day after my 31st birthday. We found ourselves in Maryland with cameras, and film, but this one was different. A small, intimate affair in the realest sense, Lauren & Steve eloped at Strong Mansion. Photographed on Portra 400, Portra 800, and Ilford HP5 film using a Contax 645 and Contax g2. Film developed and scanned by Richard Photo Lab.

Corrie and Ben married at an intimate wedding ceremony at THE TIDE’S INN, a quiet, luxury resort hidden between a golf course and an inlet of water that runs to the Rappahannock River, and just beyond that, the Chesapeake Bay.

Our wonderful friend Emily Artistry was there for hair & makeup, and florals were supplied by The Wild Bunch, a floral designer based in nearby Kilmarnock, Virginia, Michael’s hometown.  

Corrie’s daughters provided laughs and smiles, and they caught blue crabs from the water after the ceremony. At the end, they danced together to live music at the Inn, and after that, guests that didn’t know them wept and applauded.
