Do you remember Azeezat and Jeremy from their engagement session last fall? (Reminisce here.) Well, they are married y’all! Azeezat and Jeremy tied the knot with a classic Baltimore wedding over the weekend at stunning Hotel Monaco right in the heart Charm City. I’m excited to share some of my favorite images from their beautiful day with you now!
Azeezat and Jeremy met in Korea and got engaged at the top of a mountain in Colorado. Their love has literally traveled the world, culminating in their perfect, classic Baltimore wedding on one of the most aligned days of the year: 11.11.
I had never been to the Hotel Monaco Baltimore before, but after seeing photos online and knowing Azeezat and Jeremy were psyched about the grand double staircases in the lobby of the hotel, I was *s0* excited to see it for myself. You guys, this place did not disappoint! As a wedding photographer I get to see some truly gorgeous spaces, but this hotel was something special! There were so many picturesque gems in every nook and cranny, it was hard to choose the best spots to set up! I must say, though, I think we did this venue justice with Azeezat & Jeremy’s classic Baltimore wedding photos!
Azeezat and Jeremy prepared for their classic Baltimore wedding in the best way possible: surrounded by friends and family. Their entire day was filled with so much love and so many smiles; their joy was contagious! That joy permeated through so much of their wedding day, including Azeezat’s ‘first look’ with her parents, her ‘first look’ with Jeremy, and my favorite, their wedding portraits. These two love birds made it so easy for me to do my job! haha I set them up in a pose and they took it from there laughing and joking, smooching and smiling their way through the entire time!
One of my favorite parts of the day was the dancing at the reception! The DJ played Nigerian music – it sounded like pop music, which I am not sure I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing before, and it was so fun! Everyone was on the dance floor – including me! (I can take photos and dance at the same time; it’s a gift, what can I say?! haha)
Thank you to Azeezat and Jeremy for choosing me to capture your wedding day! Congratulations and best wishes, and may the love and smiles continue on your honeymoon and forevermore!
Thanks to the vendor team who put together Azeezat & Jeremy’s stunning wedding day!
