This is my first blog post as a full time photographer. There are going to be so many more consistent blog posts now!! Because I can sleep! And have time to blog! It is going to be amazing, I hope you all continue on this journey with me!
Moving right along. Last Tuesday night I had the distinct privilege of being the photographer for the Knot.com’s Cocktails and Connections annual party here in Balitmore. The event is meant to be a huge networking event for everyone in the wedding industry. It was attended by more than 250 this year. Elle Ellinghaus, of Elle Designs, did an over the moon fantastic job of creating this amazing Evening of Enchantment, picking the most amazing vendors to work with. The event was held at the 1840s Ballroom and each floor was decorated in a different yet amazing way. Just to give you an idea of how hard Elle worked on this event – I got there 3 hoursearly to photograph the details, DETAILS people. This girl is amazing at them. At the end of the night someone had said to me that they have been to these parties before for theknot.com but none have been as over the top and incredible as this one. Elle did more than an incredible job.
Enough of me rambling, let me get to what you really want to see. Here are the amazing vendors that worked on this event, and then I promise, photos.

Our amazing coordinator, Elle.
There were live models posed as princesses all over showing off amazing wedding dresses.
Each floor had a different theme. It was pretty awesome.
The Enchanted Forest was just set up for a talk by theknot.com and thebump.com.
Because this was a bump.com event as well, they had cribs, really, really expensive and amazing cribs scattered throughout. They were so pretty. This one below was my favorite.
The top floor was Happily Ever After. Everything was white and dreamy.
Once they played Cupid Shuffle and the Wobble, I truly felt like I was at a wedding.
Huge congrats to the team that pulled off this amazing event!!

I’m based in Maryland, DC and Northern VA but don’t worry, I LOVE to travel.
I love me a new passport stamp.
