It took months of planning  around crazy work schedules, but we finally found a day that worked for Alex & Marissa’s Patapsco State Park Engagement shoot. With their wedding only two weeks away, it was a nice chance for them to take a breath together and focus on their relationship. I had never been to […]

Man, I love fall weddings. Fall colors, clear sunsets, and cool air all make for one happy wedding photographer. I think my favorite part of fall are when the soybean fields take on that gorgeous golden hue, so when I arrived for Preston & Gabby’s Circle D Farm Wedding I did a little happy dance […]

Heather & Kyle’s Wedding at Glen Ellen Farm  I love when my couples try to really make their family a part of their wedding day. For their beautiful wedding at Glen Ellen Farm, Heather and Kyle did just that. The only difference is that in this case, their family is their puppies! Heather and Kyle […]

Tarek and Elizabeth are the second couple I’ve photographed who attended the small(ish) Walkersville High School but didn’t actually meet until years later! They were introduced through mutual friends and connected over the fact that they both grew up in the same small town. The rest, as they say, is history. For their engagement shoot in […]

Personal connections always make photo shoots so much more memorable and fun.  I connected with Heather a few years ago at the Holly Hills Bridal Expo when my booth happened to be next to her Heather Rae Style Studio display.  After talking for a few minutes, we discovered that her fiance, Michael, was a high […]

9 Years ago today as the sun set over Assateague Island, Brent Rader got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! At the time, Brent and I had been together for five years and I knew the proposal was coming. In May, we went ring shopping at Golden Nugget Jewelers in Philly […]

It’s time for high school senior pictures again and Alex was an amazing first senior of the season. Alex is a cheerleader at Linganore High School and has the most beautiful blue-green eyes and a contagious smile 🙂  We had a lot of fun exploring the gorgeous Dulany’s Overlook especially when we spotted three large […]

I love this couple. They are sweet, humble, funny, and love and serve the Lord. Matt and Sarah grew up only ten minutes from each other but didn’t meet until college when my matchmaking sister Rebecca (whose wedding you can find here) introduced the two of them. Although they shared classes and had secretly noticed each […]

When Jessica and David told me they were thinking of going with a gunpowder and lace theme for their wedding the first venue I thought of was The Lodges at Gettysburg. I was so glad they chose it because I think it perfectly complimented their understated theme. Jess’s lace dress and beautiful hairpiece set the […]

Get excited cuz this Linganore Winecellars engagement shoot features Sammy Stakem who in my unbiased opinion is one of the coolest people ever and has also been one of my best friends since 4th grade. If you need proof, below you will find a picture from my 4th grade birthday party in which I (the […]
