Welcome! If you're seeking vibrant, iconic, true-to-color Baltimore wedding photography... then you're in EXACTLY the right place. Within my website, you'll discover more about my style, how I roll as a photog, and of course many of my favorite images along the way...



The candid moments... it's where the true magic lies. Those shots where you two aren't posed but engaged in a beautiful moment of laughter, tear wipes, soft whispers and nuzzles... the real moments. That's where I shine! I'm a feeler and love to connect with my couples. Many have said after the engagement session that they felt we all became new besties, which is what drives me. The relationships I've built capturing weddings make this work so incredibly rewarding. 

Hi, I'm Kimberly...

Learn more about the experience...

published work, associations, and mentions

Since I began Baltimore wedding photography, goals to continue improving and submitting work for recognition always served as a priority. I'm proudly associated with the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers, Wedding Photo Journalist Association, World's Best, Fearless Photographers and of course some of my favorite local wedding publications. I believe it's critical to continue to interact with other artists worldwide and nationally as well as enter contests, workshops, and peer reviews to always further along my work. As wedding photographers in Baltimore, and beyond, these types of affiliations and published recognition help to keep us all fresh and eager to improve.

nothing beats that solid candid magic... and a sunset!

Baltimore Wedding Photographer, Kimberly Dean




Below you'll see my Baltimore wedding photography galleries, including engagements and elopements.  As you click through these galleries, I hope you notice how much I love to celebrate colors (not mute them out) and can feel some of the emotion behind these images.


Baltimore wedding photography is a massive part of my business; however, I do a lot more as well... including maternity, headshots, boudoir, and family photos. Some of my favorite shoots are capturing the joy of families and kids! Equestrian sessions are common for me as well, as I've been involved with horses for my entire life. To see more of my non-wedding work, please click here...



Kim is absolutely phenomenal!! Hands down, the BEST wedding vendor I had for my wedding! She has a way to make you feel so at ease. I did my boudoir, engagement, pre-wedding Hindu ceremonies and wedding with her. She did an incredible job capturing two religions and cultures coming together!! Her attention to detail and color in her editing is just amazing. We are able to relive the best few days of our lives with our loved ones because she captured it ALL! Book Kimberly Dean! Don’t even question it!

This section reveals what my amazing wedding photography clients have had to say about their wedding experiences. Nothing is better than a thrilled, over the moon couple after they view their wedding images.  When I receive testimonials like these, it reminds me exactly why I do this for a living... and adds so much to why I love my job as a wedding photographer. Client satisfaction is ALWAYS my number one priority with every single couple. Here are some favorite testimonials over the years that really warm my heart. 

Kimberly is amazing in every way!! She is very responsive, talented, and easy to work with!! She even had a unexpected crisis (her house was broken into) the day of my wedding and still showed up and did an amazing job. Everyone commented on how amazing my pictures are and I would choose her over and over if I had to!!! She is amazing!

Kim is the most talented photographer I have ever met. She can quickly find the perfect lighting in a random space and capture the moment so beautifully. As an awkward bride, it was so helpful that she directed me and knew how to pose me to get the best pictures. We got married on 10.08.2021 and she had an album of sneak peek pictures ready for us the very next day. The pictures are absolutely amazing, I couldn't be happier. I am so excited to see the rest! Highly recommend!!

First of 5/5 stars and highly recommend!  We live overseas and she was very willing to work with our time zone and do a zoom planning call. The day of the wedding she was prepared and I loved how much direction she gave us. I don't know how to pose and I didn't have specific looks in mind. She did a great job of pulling the best look out of everyone and giving us lots of options.  We highly recommend her!

I could not be more thrilled with the job that Kim Dean did on our wedding day. Not only does she have a fantastic eye for incredible shots she is beyond great to work with. She was so personable, giving us excellent posing suggestions that did not in any way feel forced which definitely comes out through the photos since we were so comfortable - they are naturally beautiful! After only receiving my sneak peeks I am in awe over the quality of the images. I was having some regret that I didn’t hire a videographer however I am confident that Kim’s beautiful photos will let me relive our perfect day for a lifetime.

I've been a Baltimore Maryland wedding photographer for over 8 years now. Established in 2015, I began shooting small budget weddings with just one mid-frame camera and one flash. Fast forward to NOW... three cameras, 6 lenses, four strobes, and years of knowledge under my belt... it's been a heck of a ride. I've shot well over 150 weddings as well as served a few hundred couples with engagement sessions and elopement photography!

how long have you been a wedding photographer?

what is your style?

what is the experience of working with you?  

I pour my heart and soul into any wedding day, as should be the case for all wedding photographers. The experience involves my execution of the images you crave with intention and strategic planning. Every wedding requires different methods to achieving your desired results. I take this very seriously, especially by developing a solid timeline to keep you stress free and enjoying your entire wedding rather than feeling rushed. Padding time to assure you're taken care of and your needs are met is a prime priority. Furthermore, I'm fantastic with people, enjoy helping everyone feel comfortable in front of my lens, and carry a sense of humor, always. 

Vibrant and candid oriented.  I LOVE color, and I don't mute out colors or wash anything out... rather I remain as true to color as possible with an artistic flare. I want you to look at these images in 10-20 years from now and actually see the setting in its true form... colors and all! I see so many styles among Baltimore wedding photographers, and some include the very light and airy... or the moody and darker muted look. I love both of them, but for weddings I stick to vibrant and true to color!

will you travel?

Absolutely! Although I absolutely love working as Maryland wedding photographer, I will travel anywhere! Some of my favorite destination wedding photography, and engagement photography locations have been Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and Green River Utah. I love adventure and seeing new places. If a destination wedding is on the table, I am all ears to see how we can make it work. 

How soon will we see our wedding pictures?

I proudly guarantee, in writing actually!, that all wedding couples WILL receive a bare minimum of a dozen sneak peek images the day following their wedding! I LOVE the process of loading up the images the very next morning and adding the final creative touch to them within my photo editing process.

do you shoot alone or with a second shooter?

There are plenty of wedding photographers in Maryland who shoot entire weddings solo, but I'm not that person! Here's why... its' just a bad idea! Even the most experienced Baltimore wedding photographer out there should not risk shooting a wedding day alone. I go into in depth detail with my clients about the time frame that I believe always works best for a second shooter to be present. 

what do your wedding packages look like?  

I offer eight full hours of wedding day coverage for a given wedding day. This timeframe ensures that myself and my shooter(s), have enough time to PROPERLY document all of the details that couples want. See my investment page to learn more about my wedding photography coverage.
