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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

I have literally been counting down the days to this wedding for months now! I have always wanted to photograph an Antrim 1844 wedding and when Sara contacted me about photographing her wedding there I couldn’t have been more excited. I was thrilled not only about the gorgeous venue but also about getting to be […]

Every now and then I meet a couple who were absolutely, beyond a shadow of a doubt meant to be together.  Sammi and Ben are one of those couples.  High school sweethearts and English teachers, these two have a shared love for literature, theater, Dungeons and Dragons, all things nerdy (Sammi’s words, not mine!) and […]

After four reschedules and an engagement shoot that got cut in half due to the rain, I was starting to think that Jess and David were straight up cursed when it came to the weather.  Thankfully, our sixth try brought us a beautiful summer evening and I’m hopeful their luck holds out for their Lodges at […]
