These two have been together for 18 years and it shows in their ease together. I just loved the sunny wintry hours I got to spend with them, on a weekday, as they were married at the beautiful courthouse in Annapolis. I might be biased because I live here, but I think Annapolis is just about the best place to choose for a courthouse wedding. There is soft window light in the ceremony room, the walls are clean white, there’s hardly ever a wait, and then we step outside around the sleepy historic seaside town of Annapolis for a leisurely portrait session. I feel so privileged when I get to participate in these intimate events. Melanie and Matthias will have a larger wedding in Germany at some point, but they couldn’t wait to get married any longer and I’m so glad because look at them, and this day – it was perfect.
