military wedding

Castle Farm Wedding | MD Wedding Photographer

Introducing Mr. + Mrs. Layfield! Yay! I’ve been excited for Rachel + Brady’s wedding since their sun soaked Ocean City engagement from the winter. I couldn’t wait to share in a fellow military couple’s big day. These two are as thoughtful and kind as they come, so all in all, I knew their day was going to be something special. Their Castle Farm wedding is nothing short of a magical start to their new journey together. This little gem of a farm is tucked away in Snow Hill, MD and creates a beautiful, rustic atmosphere for weddings. It’s the perfect Eastern Shore wedding venue for those who want a quaint, outdoor celebration.

I got a little nervous when I saw the weather called for cloudy skies. I typically anticipate rain somewhere along the day, but we were SO lucky! The cloud cover made dreamy light cascade over their Eastern Shore wedding venue. Rachel and Brady did not do a first look, which can be a rarity nowadays in the wedding world.

Brady’s eyes welled up with tears when he saw his beautiful bride start down the aisle. They joined hands in a prayer and commenced their ceremony with all their loved ones surrounding them. Seeing their parents and grandparents beam with happiness and pride made my heart melt. The sun even came out just in time for their ceremony!

We had a blast photographing the family, bridal party, and the new Mr. + Mrs.! The sun stuck around to create some glow-y magic in their portraits. Rachel + Brady were otherworldly happy and they were so natural together. I really didn’t have to tell them to do anything, they just let their love shine and it warms my heart every time I look at their gallery.

Every detail had meaning and I love seeing that in couples’ wedding days. Everyone got a little box of Rheb’s Candies as a wedding favor. Rachel’s poppop would get these for his grandchildren, so it’s a simple way Rachel remembers and honors his memory. She also included two trinkets on her bouquet for those who she loves and misses. Rachel and Brady truly have the biggest hearts and share them with each other and everyone around them. I’m so glad I could capture their day in such a special way ! Congratulations Mr. + Mrs. Layfield!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

- Lauren + Hunter

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
