Devon Rowland Photography as seen on @offbeatbride

Full time photographer, traveler, goofball. I've been a photographer in the Baltimore-Washington area and beyond since 2011, photographing families, events, live performances (fire, burlesque, sideshow, swing dance…), adventures in new cities, and of course weddings! I love working with people and capturing special moments in time in a fun, authentic way. Whether you're wearing a white dress in a church or a custom-made steampunk outfit in a field, I will be there to document your love, your personality, and the decisions you've made to capture it all.

I really do think the emotion is what makes or breaks a picture for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love great light and solid composition and I’m a sucker for color, but to me what makes a shot memorable, something you put on a wall and keep there for years, is the emotion that image freezes for all time.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

As a photographer I initially honed my craft by photographing anything and everything I could get my hands on from my everyday life, which often meant offbeat events like burlesque and sideshows, swing dancing (yes, that's still a thing!), and fire performance. When I started photographing weddings, I loved that I was working with couples who put a lot into their big day and making their wedding reflective of who they are together, no matter how nerdy or weird or completely normal that was.

My photographs show the best of you and your wedding, capturing moments you may have forgotten and sharing the feeling of what it was like to be there.

"Devon was fabulous. She took the time to get to know me and my husband and made sure that her photos not only captured the events of the day, but the feeling, and most importantly, the personality that made it truly 'ours'." – Jennifer S. on The Knot
