Chesapeake Bay Wedding Photography

The last time I saw Erin Stocking was ten years ago, when I took the photo below of her and her siblings at the Eastern Shore wedding of her mom, Lynn. A lot of time has passed since then and it was neat to see her again, this time at her very own wedding on the western shore of Maryland.

Erin married Mason Clark on a stunningly beautiful day, the sun setting behind the couple as they said their vows at the edge of the Chesapeake Bay. What more could one ask for really?

It's got to be the water. My wife Maya grew up in Athens, Greece and she can't stand being away from the water for any great amount of time. It calls out to her, like the Sirens to Ulysses, and once she arrives at that majestic sea I can feel that all is well with the world.

I had a similar feeling as I got out of my car at Woodlawn Farm in Ridge, Maryland, way down at the southernmost tip of the peninsula. The water was absolutely calm, the chairs were set up under a big tree, and the sun was lazily making its way across the sky. It was so serene, so soothing, that for a moment I kind of wished I could shoot a wedding every week here.
