Kate & Lane I wanted to share some photos from a recent engagement session. These two were a blast to work with, and I swear Kate has had professional modeling lessons. She was dynamite in front of the camera. I couldn't have had a better time. I can't wait for the wedding.

Chillin' Bickel-style C & A were so chilled all day...even with a few setbacks.  Somehow, in the hotel room where the dress was, the door got locked from the inside.  The manual lock had swung up into lock position when we left the room.  This was not good!!  Did I mention my camera bag was in there?  Maintenance had to literally break into the room.  It was crazy!

Yea, so C​ & A were super relaxed about that, taking that in stride.  Nothing changed as the day went on...which ended up being a pretty flawless event.

Edgewater Mini Sessions Marathan mini sessions were a huge success in Edgewater, MD this year!  We had great Springtime weather and a picture perfect setting on the South River.  The pristine landscaping on this gorgeous property made for a unique and colorful backdrop.  What a great group of people too.  Although 30 minutes is plenty enough time to get a handful of incredible shots, I found myself wanting to hang out longer with each crew.  I really couldn't have gotten luckier with all aspects of the day.  


It was very challenging to narrow it down to only 21 of all 11 sessions!  Enjoy this teaser.  Stay tuned for more....

Before it's to late I thought to myself last night, I haven't blogged in a while, so here is my families Easter. For those of you that have kids, you know holidays can be busy, but tons of fun at the same time. 

So this is the first year our son Sebastian (Bash) is really able to die eggs, or so we thought. Bash literally bashed the eggs on the table before we dyed them. I think we might have dyed 12 out of 18 but who's counting... it was a blast. 

Easter weekend was so much fun. Saturday we drove to westminster for his first egg hunt. It also happened to be a birthday party for his friend Aiden. I took a few shots for her but the camera was mostly focused on my wife and son. Sunday we went to a close family friends house. Its actually the house I will be holding my Mini Sessions on May 3rd. Its rare when families can all get together so I took the chance to to some quick family photo's and had someone take some of mine. 

I hope you enjoy the photos.

Barba Family Last Saturday was busy with this family shoot (awesome family) & a photo booth event at Salisbury University... but this family was the highlight of my day.  Whitaker is way into trains and the Muppets.  I dare anyone to try to mess with them while he is around... I learned my lesson the hard way :)

Aspen (the cute little baby) is 1 month old and might not be a huge fan of getting her picture taken, but what 1 month baby does?  However she does love to be held.  It reminded me so much of my own son as a baby.  How cool is her name?!  Parents Jeff & Alison named her after where he proposed.  Very cool.  If Tammy and I did that, our baby would be named Harper's Ferry...ha!  

I look forward to working with this family again & again, and I also wanted to throw in a special thank you to Summer & Jason Denise for referring them to me.

Will the Real Bill Bauer Please Stand Up? BB-1-2BB-1-2


To better acquaint you with myself and what you can expect from me, a friend of mine gave me some questions that I hope might give my clients get a better feel for who I am, my style and what you will receive... should you choose to hire me.


Q: Who is Bill Bauer?:

A:  I am a fun, creative, and professional photographer.  I like to personally get to know each of my clients before the wedding day.  I feel like couples are more inclined to enjoy having their pictures taken when they know & LIKE their photographer.  I always hope to develop a relationship with each client that I will have for years to come.

This relationship is what makes my style...being able to be myself.  It is a style that has evolved over the years and I believe that it will continue to do so, as I learn and grow.  The one thing I never want to change is the sincerity in each shot a take. I always try to capture the happiness of the wedding day, so whatever I might ask you to do, however I have asked you to pose, I always ask that you have a good time with it and trust in me.  I believe when you do this, the shot always ends up being spectacular.


Q: How long have you been a photographer and what drew you to it?

A: I have been into photography for about 8 years.  I can recall my family and friends poking fun at me because of the strange things I was taking pictures of, little did they know I was just emerging in skills that would develop into expertise.  I've had great practice shooting kids and family since 2007...lots of nieces and nephews!  I stumbled into wedding photography in 2008, from friends asking me if I'd do it.  Since then, my quality has increased drastically, but my interest and passion have remained constant.  

I also like how there is always something new to buy...  I mean learn. :)  Now-a-days, I focus most of my attention on learning lighting and I am trying to get into doing more studio work.


Q: Are you the actual photographer who will be shooting on my wedding day?

A: Yes, but I always have another person there assisting or second shooting.


Q: Can I submit a shot list?

A: Of course, and I expect you to.  That said, I ask that you please trust that I always make sure to capture the big and little details of your wedding day.  After all this is my main goal and is inherently what makes my job my job.  The most helpful thing is a list of grouping for the family formals.  Beyond that, I will be on a mission to capture as many details and moments as I can in the time given.  


Q: Do you shoot destination weddings?

A: Yes and I'd love the opportunity.


Q: What camera do you use and do you have back up equipment?

A: I shoot Nikon and I always have at least 2 cameras with me.  I have actually been in a situation when one of my cameras fell and broke.  I make sure to always be prepared.  I also have an array of lenses, my favorite being my 70-200.  It gives me great versatility, great for most situations.  My second is my 50mm.  Its a bit limited at times but the images it creates are some of my favs.


Q: Are you fully insured?

A: Yes, absolutely.


Q: How many times to we get to meet with you?

A: I try to meet each client 2-3 times before the actual wedding day.  Of course there is the engagement shoot, but it is not unusual for a bride/groom to want to meet closer to the wedding to go over details or go look at the venue(s).  Lets hang out!  


Q: How do you conduct yourself on the wedding day?

A: I am professional, but I also try to keep thing light.  I am always fun, but when something needs to be done there is definitely a sense of urgency and assertiveness.


Q: We would like to include some props in our wedding day photo’s how does that work?

A: If you provide them, I’m happy to incorporate them.


Q: How many high-resolutions images will I receive?

A: This number depends on the size of the wedding, but I can guarantee a ton of variety.


Q: Now that the wedding day has past, how long will it be before I get to see my images?

A: I try to have them completed in 4 weeks, but no longer than 6.  If things are going to take longer, I always make sure to be in close contact with the client.  Feel free to check in anytime to get an ETA.  


Q: I like black and white images, can I have some changed?

A: Any image can be changed to B&W or other artistic conversions.


Q: I really LOVE my photos!  What's the best way that I can express my happiness and gratitude?

A: As the saying goes...your best compliment is a referral.  I also love and benefit greatly from reviews on Wedding Wire.  I’ve had a lot of success through word of mouth, which I believe is the ultimate homage.
