a look back at 2014


this year, in the world of anna + mateo, everything was really, crazy awesome.

i know i say this every year, but this year was the biggest year of growth for us– as artists and business owners and possibly as human beings.

we shot all across north america. we worked with people from all different cultures and religions (weddings featuring vietnamese, lds, christian, hindu, jewish, peruvian, southern, + mexican traditions). we explored new mediums (cinema!) and built a new business. we moved across the country and jumped into a new market, meeting some phenomenal talent (so many new vendor/industry friends whom we admire and love!) and sweet photo friends along the way. we were thrilled to shoot alongside bp film + photo and amber flynn photography as second shooters for a few of these images as well as photography du jour. we were honored to photograph friends and family– and that so many of the families and couples we photographed ended up becoming friends. starting the year off, knowing we’d be moving back east into a completely new market, we were a little bit terrified. we didn’t know what to expect. we didn’t know anyone, in general. but we quickly learned to love begin baltimore-based destination wedding photographers— we love the scenery and the architecture; we love that we’re just a stone’s throw away from beautiful northern virginia weddings and elegant washington d.c. weddings. and new york! philadelphia! (you see where i’m going with this one… we are a little bit obsessed with travel and capturing this beautiful world). but really, when it comes down to it, we’re truly humbled and honored by the opportunity to capture precious moments in the lives of our clients. we feel exceedingly blessed by Heavenly Father with such opportunities.

to our clients: we love you. thank you for letting us be a small piece of your year.

here’s a small sampling of some of our favorite images from the year. we had a hard time choosing but ultimately decided to try and throw in a lot of surprises and less-seen images!

and here’s to the happiest of 2015s to all of you!

    Um wow — I’m speechless (nearly). While scrolling through I kept seeing a new favorite, then another and then another. You are an AMAZING destination wedding photographer and these brides and grooms have the most gorgeous photographs. I’m glad I don’t have to move to Baltimore to book you because you might just be getting my call when I finally convince my husband to renew our vows. In fact, I think I’d do it just to have you for my wedding photographer! Stunning work!

  18. Baltimore is so blessed to have your wedding photography talents. The portraits are all so clean, vivid, and beautiful, and you capture their emotions so well. THe location is also stunning!
