I’m such a fan of colors and textures. I absolutely loved the setting for a portrait with Lori and Joe. I thought it would be fun to add a splash of color so I used a nice vibrant purple smoke bomb. Which I feel added a nice pop of color to this beautiful earth tone richness. #bradbarnwellphotography #weddingportrait #weddingday #fnpwedding #justmarried #snowyadventures #snow #golfcartadventures #nikon #frederickbride #smokebombs #frederickphotographer #brideandgroom #ohhappyday #hereagleswonthesuperbowl #lovewhatyoudo

Here’s a beautiful portrait of Kristin from her wedding day. For this particular image I used a profoto B1 with the 3ft octa softbox. If you swipe right you will see the same exact image but edited using VSCO. When I shoot 35mm my favorite type of film is Kodak porta 400. So I added a preset that made my image look as if it were shot with a 35mm using Kodak porta 400 film. I think it looks great. Which image do you prefer? #weddingportrait #bradbarnwellphotography #vabride #dcbride #weddingday #justmarried #editingphotos #weddingphotography #vsco #kodakporta #profotob1 #3ftoctobox #nikon #shadowcreekweddings #lovewhatyoudo #lookslikefilm

I’m in my office today working on Tim and Molly’s wedding. I Forgot how beautiful of a snowy setting we had. No Jordans were harmed in the making of this photo. #bradbarnwellphotography #winterfashion #brideandgroom #winterwonderland #weddingday #justmarried #weddingportrait #itssnowing #inlove #dcbride #snowyadventures #gonavy #theknot #weddingwire #annapoliswedding #radlovestories #nikon #lovewhatyoudo #ohhappyday #frederickphotographer #utterlyutley #muterlyandtutley

First dances can sometimes make you feel nervous but not if you focus on your partner! It’s safe to say Sarah and Malcolm are focused on each other. #bradbarnwellphotography #firstdance #weddingportrait #weddingday #justmarried #theone #brideandgroom #bridehairstyle #frederickbride #inlove #fallwedding #fnpwedding #ohhappyday #nikon #profoto #firstdancekiss #lovewhatyoudo #weddingphotographer #frederickphotographer #blairsweetblossoms #sandmwedding

Brian and Christine having a quiet moment to themselves in the secret garden at @antrim1844 shortly after they said their I do’s. For being very late in the fall season I love how rich the green colors are. I love the contrast of the setting and the couple. What can I can say but I am a big fan of color pops. #bradbarnwellphotography #love #weddingday #weddingphotography #weddingportraits #style #ohhappyday #quietweddingmoments #fallwedding #vibrant #fallcolors #justmarried #fnpwedding #nikon #frederickmdweddingphotographer #frederickphotographer #profoto #lovewhatyoudo #danceiswithwolf

I have never really been good at writing about myself but I will try… so let me start here I was born on Valentines Day 37 years ago. My family is everything to me. I am married with 2 beautiful children. My son is named Alexander and my daughters name is Maebree. My wife EllaMae and I have been together for 13 years and married for almost 8. I am a bit of a night owl. I love music of all types… well maybe not country music but I will always give it a try. When I have time I am spending it with friends skating, playing soccer or drinking a tasty craft beer. When I say skating I mean rollerblading, I am a rollerblader. I try to surround myself with creative and positive people. My favorite food might be pizza or tacos.. its pretty darn close. Prior to being a photographer full time I worked in IT for 14 years. At weddings, you will see me dancing. I love living in Frederick. I am so grateful that I get to do what I love for a living and be a part of so many peoples lives. Thank you all so much for the love and the support! #bradbarnwellphotography #birthdayportrait #inthestudio #family #familyportrait #love #aboutme #happybirthdaytome #mykids #redheads #ilovemygingers #nikon #frederickphotographer #profoto #lovewhatyoudo #valentinesday
