Courthouse Wedding in Maryland

Maryland Elopement Photographer

bride and groom embrace at courthouse wedding in maryland

Mirtha and Faruk called me up and asked about availability for their courthouse wedding in Maryland. They had moved so many times in the last few years, with family and friends spread out amongst places they’ve traversed. It would be two friends, the officiant, and me (and my cameras, they kinda count).

It was a glorious sunny day at the Circuit Court of Howard County. With sweeping light across the entrance of this new building, love was in the air. Too cheesy? I don’t care, it was 🙂

Weddings in the time of a pandemic bring a whole new meaning to what Zoom and the internet can do. Their day was no exception! With iPad set up, and friends and family virtually gathered, they were married this sunny afternoon in a short and sweet ceremony. One friend on either side, we took group photos, exchanged well wishes and headed out into the green of the nearby woods.

Side note–I love finding gifts of nature amongst concrete jungles. It’s fun having that flexibility to get multiple backdrops and looks for your memory preservation.

Courthouse Wedding in Maryland

I think the first notion of a courthouse wedding can be stifled or informal, with it being in a business building. On the contrary, it feels like it wholly belongs to the couple. You have nothing more than the details they bring to it! Not to mention you get to celebrating faster!

But I digress-their Maryland elopement was quiet, intimate, and full of meaning. It is very clear that these two are truly made for one another. The love is palpable, and I felt such a kind energy from the moment I met Mirtha and Faruk. I’m so delighted to have gotten a chance to document their beautiful day, and I hope you enjoy their photos below! For a courthouse wedding in Maryland, this one knocked it out of the park with joy!

"Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! Every single picture we got back was nothing short of perfect. Our families and friends were amazed at how great our photos turned out as well as the volume of photos we received. She made sure to capture moments that were special to us on our wedding day, as well as make time to get all of the family photos we wanted. Something that I found to be really helpful was how organized Sarah was. She sent us questionnaires to get to know us and even created a day of timeline so my partner and I, and our families and bridal parties, would know what to expect and when formal photos would be taken. Her attention to detail and caring nature ensured that our photos reflected not only our wedding day but our personalities as well. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work. She is a fantastic photographer and a great person to work with.

"...Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. She spent ample time talking with me about my vision of the day, provided a detailed itinerary to help me stay organized, and was a listening ear when I needed practical wedding advice. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine nature helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition, we are delighted with Sarah’s technical qualities as a photographer - her sense of mise-en-scène, attention to detail, and her remarkable ability to capture poignant and symbolic moments in an inter-cultural, inter-racial, pandemic wedding."

"Beyond being a good photographer, Sarah truly works to make her clients feel comfortable and special during her sessions. She is incredibly personable and there were never any awkward, empty moments during our session! My fiancee and I were truly in the moment and Sarah allowed us to have candid, special moments together while she captured them for us to remember forever...Our day was stress-free thanks to her detailed planning...I absolutely recommend Sarah for anyone and everyone. We are forever thankful for her openness and hard work."
