Frederick MD photographer

About me

I am a wedding and senior photographer based in Frederick, MD but I love to travel and am available to photograph worldwide!  I also am a lover of God, life, my husband, my baby girl, teaching, dark chocolaMary Sarah & Brent 0011te, and of course, photography.  I am incredibly passionate (and at times opinionated!) about just about everything.  I love traveling and getting to experience as much in life as I possibly can.  I am a hopeless romantic and tear up every time Mr. Darcy says, “You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you.” Luckily, I happen to be married to the most wonderful man in the world who puts even Mr. Darcy to shame.  I was blessed to grow up as a pastor’s child and have my wonderful parents to thank for my relationship with Christ.  I also am the oldest of seven – the first six of which are girls – and I wouldn’t trade my crazy family for anything!

Photography has always been a passion of mine, but it wasn’t until after college that I started to get serious.  The plan was to sell my wedding dress to fund a camera, but when I burst into tears after trying it on ‘one last time,’ my husband, Brent, quickly agreed that I should keep my dress AND buy a camera.  What a man!  Brent also happens to be my second shooter at weddings and is incredibly cool and talented behind the camera.

I think it is the romantic in me that draws me to wedding photography.  There’s just something magical about the look on a groom’s face when he sees his bride walking up the aisle, and the smile and confidence a woman possesses when she knows she is loved.  I’ve experienced myself just how powerful this precious gift of love can be, and so I consider it a huge blessing to be able to share in the most important day of a couple’s life.  I like to think that I am not a photographer of weddings but rather of love; and while I will capture artistic photos of the gorgeous wedding dress and the stunning flowers, I will do so in a way that tells the story of your relationship on your wedding day.

While I love photographing weddings, I also love to photograph seniors!  I remember just how exciting it was to be a senior; to feel like you have the whole world in front of you with no one to tell you otherwise.  I also love that seniors are experiencing that beautiful transition between youth and adulthood; and through my senior photography I strive to express the emotions, personality, and character of my senior.  I only shoot on location and will do everything I can to tailor the senior shoot around my seniors so that I can best represent them for who they are.

On my blog you will find examples of my latest work, as well as random blogs about my life and travels so that you can get a better idea of who I am.  Please stay awhile and feel free to contact me if you would like to schedule a shoot!
