The Insider Wedding Report- Volume 8

Baltimore's hottest new hotel wedding reception location lives up to expectations, and exceeds them in opportunities for great wedding photography. Love Life Images photographers will be photographing some upcoming weddings at the hotel, so we went for a sneak peek into what locations might work for portraits. As wedding photographers, we are always hoping for clean, uncluttered spots for photos. The location of the hotel alone is perfect for Baltimore weddings. We can't wait to photograph some Baltimore weddings at the hotel. 

4,565 sq. ft Sagamore Ballroom capacity- 175-220

 First thoughts: We are dying to use all the little unique spaces in the courtyard and near the ballroom for portraits and for bridal party photos. Ideas were flowing on our site visit.

 Great views from the balcony above the main lobby present interesting vantage points.

 We are most excited about the courtyard, which is half covered with glass ceilings and has this amazing long aisle. The sculpture is a poignant fixture among the trees, and will be a stunning backdrop.

 The red carpet staircase is naturally lit and sits away from the crowd- ideal for family photos!

 This door outside is easy to get to and will be perfect for wedding portraits with the couple. The lobby of the ballroom has plenty of natural light.

Wedding Day Make-up

One of my favorite go-to’s in my kit is Urban Decay All- Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray.

I use at the end of all my bridal makeup applications.

This weightless spray is the perfect final touch to bridal makeup.

Since my brides will have their makeup on for hours through pictures, ceremony and reception, often in hot, humid or windy weather, this fabulous product ensures everything stays perfect until they take if off.

I especially love that it’s oil and paraben free.
