I am a full-time wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Frederick, Maryland but I travel to whatever is needed to get the shot. I get to photograph amazing people, traditions and locations every week. One of the most rewarding parts of my job is watching couples & families grow.
Kevin Quinlan is an unobtrusive wedding photojournalist with a strong background in fine art. Kevin holds a Bachelors of Fine Art degree in Fine Art/Photography from the University of Delaware.
As a journalist for the past 12 years, I’m always thinking about the best way to tell a story. In 2006, I immersed myself in wedding photojournalism, and it completely changed my view of the world. With camera in hand, I now tell stories through a series of compelling photos that, taken together, have an emotional impact.
It was a natural move for Ryan to start photographing weddings after working in newspapers for nine years.

Following an arts-based education at Oberlin College, she began shootings weddings while working as a second-shooter, photo album designer, and studio manager for acclaimed wedding photographer Holger Thoss.
"I capture what I feel. For me the power of sight is more important than artistic vision. Style becomes secondary and sometimes can even be constricting when what you're after is the inherent beauty of the moment itself. Close your eyes and take a minute to remember your life's first significant event.
Wow!!!!!!! They are awesome. Thank you so much to you and your wife for the incredible job that you did. We've had several fabulous compliments on your work and professionalism since our wedding. Now with the pictures...
We all love the photos! You worked your magic and caught some really great moments. -From the Mother of The Bride,
Getting Married in Maryland
As a Mid-Atlantic state, Maryland offers a surplus of unique perspectives and cultural experiences that bring the blessings of both the north and south of the United States together. With a nickname of “America in Miniature”, this fine wedding destination includes the sandy dunes, marshland regions, and oceanic ports of the Atlantic coast in the east, the rolling hills of forestry in the central Piedmont region and the mountainous, pine-filled regions in the west. Water activities and seafood delights are in plenty throughout the coastal regions of Maryland, making for prime traveling options for your wedding guests and family members who come to celebrate your special wedding occasion. In addition, you will find classic wedding photography opportunities that your wedding photographer will be delighted to shoot. History is studded throughout Maryland, with its connection to the nation’s capital, Washington D.C. and its varied Civil War historical sites. In addition to being the state capital, Annapolis, home of the United States Naval Academy, is considered by many to be the sailing capital of America, which offers a backdrop of maritime experiences and fine photographic opportunities. Maryland uniquely borders the states of Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and Delaware, and offers a coast to the Potomac River, the Chesapeake Bay and the magnificent Atlantic Ocean that can present creative opportunities to set the stage for stunning wedding photographs. These exclusive Maryland features make for a wedding experience filled with distinctive photographic opportunities that will leave you with indelible memories of your Wedding Celebration.
