Happy Halloween! My friend Cindy and Matt go all in for Halloween. I thought this idea was amazing and when Cindy hit me up asking to take some pictures of her costume I was hyped. #bradbarnwellphotography #happyhalloween #trickortreat #edwardscissorhands #haircut #asymmetricalhair #emo #timburton #inthestudio #frederickphotographer #profoto #nikond850 #nikon #halloweenportrait #alwaysdressingup #lovewhatyoudo

I don’t remember the last time I posted a photo on Instagram that wasn’t from my camera but sometimes it’s hard to keep the children still to get a still shot with the dslr so this will do. I will get the kids in the studio soon. My mom made the kids costumes! #bradbarnwellphotography #halloween #trolls #burgens #poppy #branch #ladyglittersparkle #family #lovemesomehalloween #alwaysgiveoutfullsizecandybars

Happy birthday to my good friend Christy! For her birthday she gets to be a mama to this little June bug! June is so adorable! I feel like she is going to have her mama’s blue eyes.

I received my Nikon D850 during the time of the Great Frederick Fair. I had seen the reflections of the fair on the creek one night while driving home. I asked my friend Laura if she would be down for a evening shoot. That I had a rad idea and I wanted the first time using the camera to be of the idea. She was down and here are some of the photos. I think it turned out how I visualized it. #bradbarnwellphotography #ideas #frederickmd #frederickfair #nikond850 #frederickphotographer #profotousa #profoto #nikon #nightportrait #createlight #friends #carolcreek #fairfood #lovewhatyoudo

Did you know Elvis was in Frederick recently? Mark and Kelly hired Elvis to marry them and perform his classic songs. What an awesome wedding! Thank you for having me be apart of it all. #bradbarnwellphotography #justmarried #wedding #weddingday #weddingportraits #brideandgroom #ohhappyday #inlove #family #frederickbride #frederickphotographer #fnpwedding #elvispresley #elvisisinthebuilding #hunkhunkofburninglove #surprise #partytime #nikon #profoto #lovewhatyoudo

This is my friend and fellow Frederick photographer Lainey. She just got a new MacBook and wanted to talk about her switch from PC to Mac. I asked if she was down to take some portraits in the studio. I just got my Nikon D850 and haven’t done any studio work with it yet. Lainey was a little reluctant but she then said yes. Lainey is really easy to take photos of as you all can see. In each series I showed an image where Lainey just burst out in laughter which I absolutely loved. It was great hanging/working with you and hopefully we do it again sometime. Check out her work @laineymuren #bradbarnwellphotography #inthestudio #nikond850 #profoto #profotob1 #frederickphotographer #friends #smile #stylefordays #talentedfriends #webothshootnikon #lovewhatyoudo

I have become a big fan of wedding silhouette portraits this season. There is something so strong about outlining a couple with beautiful light. I know I posted an image in my previous post but I feel this image deserves its own post. #bradbarnwellphotography #weddingday #weddingportraits #brideandgroom #portrait #silhouette #silhouetteportrait #dcbride #love #weddingdaysilhouette #sunset #understandlight #nikon #lovewhatyoudo

What a beautiful day for Kristin and Dan! It was so fun to be apart of it. #bradbarnwellphotography #weddingday #weddingportrait #justmarried #brideandgroom #family #love #greatenergy #frederickphotographer #vaphotographer #nikon #happilyeverafter #profoto #lovewhatyoudo

Its wild to think that Alexander is 4 years old. Time goes by so fast. Alexander, Maebree, my mom and I spent all morning/afternoon together at Maryland Science Center while waiting for EllaMae and my dad to get off of work. We had a beautiful evening together as a family. Homemade pizza, Mac and cheese, chicken nuggets and salad plus ice cream cake for dessert. Family is everything to me! I am really glad that my folks moved back to Maryland and get to be apart of my kids lives. EllaMae its been a beautiful adventure raising these gingers with you :-) #bradbarnwellphotography #happybirthday #birthdayboy #4yearsold #family #love #familyiseverything #legos #birthdaycake #marylandsciencecenter #nikon #prouddad #growingupsofast
