Lately, we just can’t stop swooning over (or pinning!) the amazing photographs from photography collectiveReadyluck. Responsible for some of the most stunningly gorgeous wedding pictures we’ve ever seen, the photography collective provides Mid-Atlantic brides with once-in-a-lifetime images of a once-in-a-lifetime event. Photographers Shane Carpenter, Lindsay Hite, and Jacqueline Schlossman formed the collective in 2011 and since then, their beautiful, creative, wedding photography has been featured everywhere fromStyle Me Pretty to NBC’s Daily Connection.
Readyluck’s photographers are experienced photojournalists and artists both, with work in magazines and newspapers as well as museums and galleries. But the transition to photographing weddings was an easy decision, according to the photographers: “Readyluck specifically focuses on wedding photography with an emphasis on creative portraiture and photojournalistic storytelling. We approach weddings differently and creatively, and seek to work with couples who share this similar artistic vision.” Readyluck photos are intimate and sophisticated, with crystal-clear resolution and a palpable sense of romance and adventure that radiates from each image. The photographers told me, ”There is a conventional, agreed upon notion of what wedding photography is, and we seek to create beyond those limitations.”
And that name? The inspiration behind the collective’s title is inspired by weddings themselves: “Luck is being ready – in life and in love, as we carry ourselves along with open eyes, hearts and minds. To be in the right place at the right time involves preparation and an acute awareness of light, form, and detail. It also requires an agreement of chance, of unknown paths crossing, a coming together.” That’s Readyluck.
The Readyluck gang is committed to taking wedding photography to the next level, providing unforgettable images of ceremonies, receptions, and more. Carpenter, Hite and Schlossman stressed how privileged they feel to be invited to document couples’ wedding days. Luckily for us, the photographers especially love shooting weddings in Charm City: “As artists and creative types with strong ties to MICA, the growing arts and DIY scene in Baltimore keeps us loving this town . . . we’ve expanded into NYC and the mid-Atlantic, but Baltimoreans are some of our absolute favorite people to partner with.”
Readyluck stresses a personalized approach to wedding photography. If you’d like to hire Readyluck to shoot your wedding, you’d choose one of the three photographers based on his or her unique style, vision and approach to photography. Readyluck offers a full package, including a second photographer, full-resolution images and credits towards albums and prints. They are also available for destination weddings. - Carrie Murphy
