Our business has experienced tremendous growth over the past seven years, and it still surprises me daily! I’ve had the most amazing opportunities to travel all over the East Coast and Mid West to learn from some of the best in the industry, as well as fulfilling my heart's desire through photography.
What a journey it's been so far!
I often find myself at a loss for words whenever I think about how thankful I am for my clients and their families letting me into their lives through photography. I've watched in awe as many of my couples united together through marriage have moved on to graduate with higher degrees, begin their careers, and even start their families. I've cried during their weddings and celebrated with them through anniversaries. I don't think they'll ever understand the impact they've had on my life and the lives of my children. We are truly blessed for having known them all!
FILM PHOTOGRAPHER | TEACHER | MOTHER | WIFE
There is nothing that touches my heart more than a couple that is truly, & intently in love. It's almost always evident in the way he steals glances when she's not looking, or in the way she softly touches his arm while he talks. It is my intent to photograph the start of your marriage in a way that is genuine and sentimental. I believe in storytelling through details, elegant portraits, & the whispered moments in the midst of celebration. And I believe that a couple's love shines in their portraits when they're comfortable with their photographer.
If you're looking for wedding photographs that you will treasure for a lifetime, then I'm confident we're perfect for each other!

FAVORITE THINGS WE LOVE TO HAVE FOR FUN & BUSINESS
Our plan had always been that I would stay at home with our daughter once she arrived. But since my business was less than part time, I thought this would be the perfect moment to push it forward.
While I was home, in between feedings and tummy-time, I poured all of my focus into building my SEO strategy and my web presence.
In my heart, I desperately wanted my business to move into full-time status. My daughter would grow up quickly and pushing my dreams into a reality needed to happen fast. Setting up all of my business accounts was the next step.
Family portraits were very much a large portion of the business I booked for several years before weddings became my focus. Quickly inquiries picked up, reviews started pouring in, and business was doing well!
In 2017 we were awarded Best of B&B Winner for the Best Wedding Photographer in Annapolis by Borrowed & Blue, and received the WeddingWire Couples' Choice Award. We were also featured for publication on large wedding blogs/magazines such as Martha Stewart Weddings & Dear Gray Magazine.
In 2015 I announced that weddings, engagements, & anniversaries would be my main focus. In our second year of fully focusing only on couples, we booked 30 weddings & started traveling across the US for destination weddings.
I get overwhelmed with thankfulness and joy (sprinkled with even more motivation) when I think about how blessed we've been to be successful in the wedding industry every year! We're now booking for 2018 weddings and engagements.
Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.
