p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Looking for a wedding photographer, upper Montgomery County Maryland


Hi everyone, taking the plunge at 55 and getting married. Would like to shoot my own wedding but not sure how my better-half-to-be would react to that.

So we are thinking Dec 28 and a small event for family and friends, about 25 people, and the wedding and the reception will be at home. Location is from DC, 270 north to Rt. 109, just south of Sugarloaf Mountain--at the Montgomery-Frederick County line. Our house is a historic farmhouse with 20 acres and will be a nice location for atmosphere. The event will be low key.

Looking for a photojournalistic style, no strobes or flash, not a traditional. No parents involved in this, and not the first wedding for either of us and therefore not a typical first marriage arrangement with all the bells and whistles. No budget determined at this time but low cost with good PJ style photos so should be a less work intensive arrangement. I would like a copy of the RAW files tho so that is something to discuss. I know a few people locally but they all do traditional style. Would not be a long affair...a few hours tops. Will be reaching out to a few newspaper photogs here too, but FM has always been a wonderful group so want to try here.

Please PM me if you know of someone that would be interested, all the best, Shane

PS My soon to be better half, got to ask her in Florence, and she said yes.

Why would no strobes or flash be a no-go for anyone? Good body with a fast prime is fine depending on the timing of things and the ambient light. And it appears he understands what no flash would look like.

Cuz their style is they bring in two, three, four strobes on tall light stands and light the place up.

I cannot speak to the specific terms of her contract and so on, but IMHO anyone in this area looking for wedding photography should at least check out Katie Merkle's work.

For sure. He won't destroy your beautiful natural light with a flashgun. You owe it to yourself to at least have a look at Chuck's work before making your final decision.

Not a problem for me at all, I do PJ work all the time no flash. I don't want strobes or flashes at this event.

Perhaps you may want to start another thread discussing the pros and cons of that. Best, Shane

My first thought when reading was also Chuck. He seems to share your style.

Thanks. Personally have been no strobe for years and that is what I want for this event, my wedding. It will eliminate some folks and that is my choice...it is my wedding.
