Unless you’re a family birthday or anniversary, there are very few important dates/people in the universe who’ve been in our calendars for as long as Christine and Chalita have. Long before they even settled on a wedding date and venue, Christine and Chalita absolutely knew, without hesitation, that they wanted me to document their wedding day…2 years later! For a photographer who was just starting to get his bearings in this whirlwind world of wedding photography, this was the most sincerest and appreciated compliment I’d ever received. The fact that somebody else out there believed in our work, long before we even believed it ourselves – that, to me, is just incredible. So from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.
Christine and Chalita tied the knot at the historic Belvedere Hotel in Baltimore, MD. The colorful foliage along the cobblestone streets of Mt. Vernon gave every indication of Fall, but the pedestrians walking briskly by with their scarves wrapped tightly around their faces suggested that winter would be arriving early this year. This would be perfect for our awesome couple, of course. After all, what bride wouldn’t love to walk around in heels on cobblestone in almost-freezing weather? But I digress :). Christine and Chalita started their day nearby at the Hampton Inn in downtown Baltimore.
