This week on the blog we are so excited to spotlight one of our favorite vendors, Hamilton Photography. Hamilton Photography is a great vendor to work with and even better people! We asked them a few questions for our readers to get to know them better.
How did you get started?
By chance, Mark and I met in San Francisco in a camera store (of all places!) . We realized we had so much in common including photography! We spent 2 years in San Francisco and fell in love! We decided to move to Maryland to be closer to my family and to start Hamilton Photography. We have never looked back.
What do you think every bride should know?
Prioritize what is important before you start vendor shopping. Pick the top 3 most important things to you (ie: food, venue, photography etc..) and don't 'cut corners ' on those vendors. I always suggest making a comparison analysis within your most important categories so you can make and solid decision and have no regrets
What is your favorite wedding memory?
So many to choose from! Having a beautiful wedding ceremony at the USNA and then hopping on a sailboat ride with the newly wed couple. They were so sweet. We did some epic photos on the Chesapeake Bay and then they had some quiet time to take in the amazing moments . Finally, we arrived to the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel by sailboat and I loved seeing how happy the couple was and then seeing all the excited guests waving at them.
What is your favorite trend?
The latest dresses are photographing so nicely and give a timeless feel. I am glad strapless is out and illusion necklines with delicately capped sleeves or dropped sleeves are in. I am also seeing more creativity with the back of dress. I love unique cuts and embellishments.
What is your favorite part of your job?
I Just love the relationship we create with our clients. Just the other day we ran into a bride and groom (and their newborn baby!) on the streets of downtown Annapolis. They were just excited to see us as we were to see them.
