My heart sunk when I received Ellen’s text that they were going to have to postpone their wedding indefinitely. Ellen and Marco were supposed to get married back in July, but Marco lives in Honduras and due to strict Covid travel restrictions Marco literally was unable to make it to his own wedding. In the […]
Jenn & Bobby couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for their Springfield Manor wedding. Earlier in the week the weather had been predicting torrential thunderstorms, but instead we had nothing but blue skies and beautiful light. From a sweet first look, to an adorable ring bearer pup, to a super fun and energetic […]
Emma & Ian’s DC engagement shoot was epic, and not just because I had a gorgeous, fun couple to photograph! I’ve taken DC engagement photos before and it’s always hard to fit in a number of locations because everything is so far apart. Thankfully, Emma’s parents, Lynn & Dan, (who happen to be good friends […]
I feel so honored to have had the opportunity to capture so many beautiful aspects of Frankie & Kendra’s love story. It began with Frankie’s wintry Downtown Frederick proposal where I was able to capture all of the joy and excitement of that once-in-a-lifetime moment.

I can’t believe it’s already been almost 8 months since I photographed Ally’s Carroll Creek Downtown Frederick senior pictures!

Due to the quarantine, she hadn’t been able to share the majority of her pregnancy with her family who live in the south, and she wanted a maternity shoot to commemorate this special time of […]
I’m kicking myself for not blogging these beautiful DC engagement photos sooner! In the chaos of fall wedding season, I occasionally get behind in blogging and just realized today that I never shared Travis and Lauren’s stunning Lincoln Memorial engagement shoot with you. The plan had been to meet at the Jefferson Memorial and spend […]
