The Sea and The Stars // Amanda and Nick’s Wedding Story // Baltimore Wedding Photographer

Last September I started on a project with one of my best friends Frankie that would change my life. We had the privilege to make a documentary about The Samaritan Women Ministry (TSW), an organization that is operating a transitional residence program for women recovering from trauma and trafficking which emphasizes life-rebuilding and reconciliation. TSW is also leading a state-wide social justice initiative against human trafficking. During the process of making the documentary we interviewed various staff members and volunteers from TSW including Amanda and Nick. When I met Amanda last September, she was a single woman pursuing her passion for social justice. Later we met Nick, a volunteer who gave up everything to inform the world about human trafficking. They starting dating while we were still making the film. When Amanda called me and asked me to be her photographer for her August wedding I was literally in tears. They tied the knot on the The Samaritan Women property where they first met and fell in love! These two ran towards their passions and towards God and found each other in the midst. I feel completely honored to share some of my favorite images from their wedding day!

Here is the tale of the Seafarer’s Daughter (Amanda’s Dad was in the Navy)  and the Star-gazer’s Son (Nick’s dad works for NASA) :

  1. Kate… You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve ever met and this wedding simply proves that beyond a shadow of a doubt. This is by far one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever seen. Oh my goodness. The light, the love, the story. It’s so moving and beautifully told. Oh, and that double exposure literally took my breath away!

  2. Nick and Amanda’s wedding was amazing. Everything seemed to fall into place just as it was supposed to. I want nothing but the best for Amanda and Nick. If their wedding is any indication it will be smooth sailing for them. Love always, live with joy.
