jubilee farm vineyard wedding chesapeake charm photography

As a Maryland wedding photographer, I have gotten the privilege to travel all over this beautiful state and visit so many wonderful places from the Eastern Shore to Western MD! I’ve been to farms, properties, and private residences that I never even knew existed.  Being in this industry has opened my eyes to so many gorgeous places, and there are a few that I am just DYING to photograph!

So, I thought I’d make a list of venues that are all on my wedding photography bucket list! As some of you know, I did this before the last wedding season, and I’m excited to say that I was able to photograph weddings at so many of those venues! So, I’m back at it this year with a new, fresh list. AND, because I love y’all so much, I’m offering $250 off any wedding photography package for 2019/2020 brides who are getting married at one of these venues!!! See below for more info!

Without further ado, here are some venues I’ve got my eye on, in no particular order!

 

STONE TOWER WINERY

Leesburg, VA

Ok so, I’ve actually shot here before! I had the pleasure of shooting a gorgeous wedding here this past fall, and y’all – I fell in LOVE! Like, I could see myself getting married here. The views are amazing, the vines are lush, and the interior spaces are perfection. It doesn’t get much better than Stone Tower Winery, especially if you’re a wine lover like me! I’ll shoot here every weekend if you let me!

 

ACCELERATOR SPACE

Baltimore, MD

This venue is making a comeback from last year’s list! One look at this cool venue and you’ll totally see why I’m dying to shoot here! This space is so perfectly Baltimore, with a mix of urban flair and modern class!

 

HAYFIELDS COUNTRY CLUB

Hunt Valley, MD

So, I can’t believe I haven’t worked at this venue before! Yall, its literally 3 minutes from my home! I didn’t even know this country club existed until my best friend decided to get married there! I’ll be honest – I wanna shoot here because not only is it gorgeous, but that commute is just too good! 😀

 

ANTRIM 1844

Taneytown, MD

My boyfriend Mark and I spent a weekend here a few years ago, and it is such a stunning property. The architecture is beautiful and it has such a classic and elegant feel!

 

ANNAPOLIS MARITIME MUSEUM

Annapolis, MD

Annapolis Maritime Museum is another venue I’ve actually shot at before! I second shot a wedding here with my friend a while ago, and did a styled shoot on their docks.  However, I loved it SO much that I’m dying to shoot another one here! The indoor area is so cozy and sweet, and you get the most perfect sunsets over the water in the evenings!

 

INN AT PERRY CABIN BY BELMOND

St. Michaels, MD

Crabcakes and football, baby. That’s what Maryland DOES!!  Can you name that movie quote?  If you said Wedding Crashers, you’re probably from Maryland!  🙂  They filmed part of that fantastic movie at the Inn at Perry Cabin, and no, the movie isn’t entirely why I want to shoot there!  I mean, the views of this place speak for themselves!!!

 

HISTORIC LONDONTOWN & GARDENS

Annapolis, MD

Waterfront + gorgeous landscape + historic buildings?! Enough said! Bonus points if you get married here in the spring – the blossoming trees are amazing!

 

CHESAPEAKE BAY MARITIME MUSEUM

St. Michaels, MD

I’ve actually photographed part of an engagement session at CBMM, and I fell in love! It would be so amazing to head back and photograph someone’s big day on their gorgeous grounds.

 

CHESAPEAKE BAY FOUNDATION

Annapolis, MD

With beautiful waterfront views at a venue that is dedicated to saving our Bay – this one’s a no-brainer!

 

HAVEN STREET BALLROOM

Baltimore, MD

One look at the outside of Haven Street Ballroom and you’ll see why I am dying to take photos at this space! The bright colored murals outside are so cute, and the white washed interior can be transformed in so many cool ways.

 

PIPPIN HILL FARM & VINEYARDS

North Garden, VA

Pippin Hill is just one of those wedding venues that every photographer dreams of shooting! I can just imagine a gorgeous bride with her dashing groom with a lush bouquet of peonies in front of those iconic barn doors!

 

EVERGREEN MUSEUM & LIBRARY

Baltimore, MD

This gorgeous historic property is full of charm, class, and stunning gardens. A wedding photographer’s dream!

 

RUNNING HARE VINEYARDS

Prince Frederick, MD

This is another venue I shot at in 2018, but come on. I just need to go there again – more great views and gorgeous Tuscan-inspired scenery!!!

 

JUBILEE FARM & VINEYARD

Leonardtown, MD

Yep, been here too – but its too pretty to visit just once! There are SO many amazing spots for pictures – stunning barn structures & houses, docks, woods leading up to the waterfront, pretty fields and rows and rows of green vines!

 

OLD WESTMINSTER WINERY

Prince Frederick, MD

Beautiful views, beautiful sunsets, and even better wine! 😛

 

 

If you are a 2019/2020 bride tying the knot at one of these venues, please email me! I’d love to offer you $250 off any wedding package. Wedding photography pricing begins at $3200.  This offer is only valid for a limited time, so act soon!
