A Sultry Romance Styled Shoot in College Park, MD

With The Hotel at the University of Maryland as the stunning venue, this styled shoot  dared to showcase the sultry side of a wedding day. Whimsical love and romance could be found in all the details. Soni Brown, Owner/Lead Planner of Love Always, Wedding Planning LLC shares the vision for this beautifully executed shoot:

“I chose a vivid, bold color palette of fuchsia, cardinal red, gold and black alongside sleek, provocative lines throughout from the bride and groom’s attire down to the acrylic invitation suite.  

The photographer, Michael A Clark Weddings,  focused on shooting with a cinematic approach that made you feel as though you were peeking in at an intimate moment between the couple, showcasing them in pure bliss!  My vendor team and I executed this by shooting sultry moments in real time, allowing Erica & Xavier to be present in the moment and feel the love and seduction surrounding them.”
