Baltimoreans don’t take themselves too seriously, and they also really know how to have a good time. This photograph, taken at a Wyndham Hotel wedding in Baltimore’s Mt. Vernon neighborhood, is playful and fun. This cute little wedding attendee’s expression as she holds up a huge plastic engagement ring reflects the exuberant and lively mood of the occasion.
Props and favors can become compelling storytelling accessories that enhance each photographic moment. A great big ring becomes a window; a peephole highlighting the amusement in a child’s eye. The effect is an expression of a larger feeling: the excitement of a day full of fun and celebration.
