Liz and Ed scheduled their downtown Frederick elopement on my birthday in February of 2022.
I was planning on spending my birthday with my family and an Irish coffee or two. Then Liz and Ed asked if I’d shoot their elopement. Obviously, I said yes. How could I skip something so cool?
As a Frederick native you’d think I’d be kind of over all the parts of downtown Frederick I’ve seen a million times, but when I say I always have a million ideas for downtown Frederick weddings, I mean it.
My mind immediately went to dozens of locations, but the weather was slightly limiting. It was February, after all.
Now, I know I just mentioned the weather was limiting, but it’s not like it was freezing cold. Sure it was cold. But it was definitely warm enough for me to find a good vantage point, have Liz and Ed wait for traffic to clear, and get a really unique shot from a parking garage of them leaving the courthouse on their way to get some more photos.
As much as I love capturing this moment in time, I think it’s also especially important to make sure a photo is as timeless as possible. As we walked past The Weinberg I knew I wanted to shoot a moment of the two of them under the marquee, although I think we can all agree COVID is something we’d like to leave in the 2020’s. I used a filter and artfully hid the parts of the signage I didn’t want to see. Not that the theater doesn’t deserve to show off what they were promoting, but for Liz and Ed, I thought it was best to keep it classy.
Long story short;
This was an unforgettable day.
Memorable, sweet, and unique. After lunch at Lucky Corner, we called it a day, and I sent Liz and Ed on their way.
It’s not every day I get to shoot a downtown Frederick Elopement, but when I do, I really enjoy my day.
