Spring Wedding at La Banque de Fleuve | Kaitlyn & Kevin| Havre de Grace Wedding Photographer

Updated: Aug 27, 2020

There are just some people that enter your life and they are meant to be there forever. The movement I met Kaitlyn and Kevin I had this feeling about them and revisiting their wedding day on their anniversary made that feeling so much clearer. Over the years we have consistently stayed in each others lives as good friends and every time I get to see these two I hug them so tight and my heart is beyond overwhelmed with happiness. They are two of my sweetest friends and it all began with an engagement session in Georgetown, Washington DC which led to their wedding day in Havre de Grace at La Banque de Fleuve.

La Banque de Fleuve is located along the waterfront in Havre de Grace, Maryland. They have two spaces available for you next event. The seaplane base the the bank one outdoor with a tented reception area the other indoors. Kim Barth and the team at La Banque are truly a class act and every time I'm photographing at this space, I know my couples are in the best hands in town for their wedding day.

I remember this day so vividly. The ladies got ready at the La Banque, while the guys had gotten ready at the hotel. The weathering Maryland can be...interesting to say the least. We had a pop up storm come in off the water and it was a torrential downpour. The ceremony was all set up the the skies opened. I was at space for the reception the this happened and I pitched in the the venue staff to move things, get table cloths off the ground and squeegee the water from the floor.Kim and her team are literal wedding day MVPs. After the rain subsided, I went to see Kaitlyn in the bridal room to see how she was doing. No bride wants rain on their wedding day and I was worried about her. When I arrived, all the girls were kicked back drinking wine and so chill. I gave her a status update and she was so laid back and easygoing, it was all good.

The venue was cleared and reset back up in record time and we were all systems go for Kaitlyn and Kevins dream wedding day! Rain is a blessing on a wedding day. Once the storm clouds clear, you have the most perfect incredible light and contrasty skies. A photographers dream light situation!!

This wedding day was full of so many smilies and so much laughter. You can see how much Kaitlyn and Kevin love each other and how incredibly happy they are together!

Couples Update: Kaitlyn & Kevin just bought their first new home together and are moving in soon! Kaitlyn has taken her love of all things Lilly Pulitzer and started a fashion and Lifestyle Blog called Collect Like Kaitlyn. You can follow along in her adventures, their couples kitty Fluff and of course, loads of outfit inspiration! Her try on session always make me smile. Go follow her on Instagram too!

Photography by Tracie is based out of New Orleans, Louisiana and Baltimore, Maryland and is always ready for the next adventure. I have traveled and worked all over the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. My approach to photography is very non-posed focusing on relationships, not a static 20 poses, and most importantly putting YOU first!

My goal is to create moments that are not in existence for you yet. I crave to create connections with my couples as clients AND as friends. As we embark on this wild ride to “I Do”, WE are going to live our lives out loud showing all the vibrancy joy, and many shades of colorful love you share with the world.

I travel at minimum monthly for weddings, portrait work and with digital creators all around the US and internationally. So, if your dream wedding day is romantic, colorful, offbeat, on a farm, in the city, at a manor, at the bottom of a canyon or on a glacier, I am ready to rock out with you and pour you a glass of champagne to celebrate these magical moments with you. To get the lowdown on my upcoming travel dates or when I’ll be in a town near you, drop me a message here to set up your personalized travel portrait/elopement/engagement session with me!
