We are so grateful for your interest in Merkle Photography. Since 2010, we have been privileged to document the love and excitement of couples on one of the most wonderful and meaningful days in their lives. We embrace this trusted role and have traveled across the world capturing their singular moments. These images have graced the covers of magazines, colored the pages of newsprint, won international competitions, and our studio has been ranked among the best of the best.

But, at the end of the day, our passion is driven by the things we value the most: our family, our friends, and the memories that we have created together.

If you take a peek into our homes, you will find walls adorned with photographs of simple yet profound moments: a newborn baby sleeping peacefully in her bassinet, the sun warming her face as it rises on the very first morning of her life; two boys, snuggled under a tent of blankets on the living room floor, watching the television under the amber glow of the Christmas tree. And the dozens of faces of those who made it possible for us to be here today.

To us, these are the moments that shape our lives. And to our clients, it is their desire to have their own moments artfully documented that draws them to our work.

To request more information and check availability, please call us at (443)-330-7775 or use the contact form on our website and we'll get right back to you. We would love to bring our skills, talents, and passion to your wedding!

About Katie, Lead Photographer and Owner

I want to cover your day in a way that highlights the emotion and sincerity that surrounds you and the people you love. Some emotions are unbridled, but most are nuanced and fleeting.  When you look back at your set of images, I want you to be transported back to that day and to have those feelings rekindled.

I need very little from you to do my job. My role is to be an observer and a listener.  The less time I spend interrupting, the more time I can spend watching, waiting, and capturing the moments that should be remembered.

If I'm there to record it, it will be without a list, without printed pages of images from other photographers that you’d like to see imitated. I'll be there as me – and I’ll be capturing you.

About Chuck:

Balancing life as a photographer, full-time dean, coach, husband, and father to three amazing boys I am grateful for my work and the people I love. For me, there is nothing more rewarding than anticipating a moment and rising to meet it, whether through my lens or through leadership.

My photography is an expression of my desire to bring people together, and to show them how beautiful they truly are. While I’ve been recognized as a top photographer internationally, most people just say I am an “all around good guy”, and that works well for me.

It is my pleasure to work with Katie as a team, and to weave our styles effortlessly to give you a one-of-a-kind portfolio of artistically captured moments you will never forget.
