Sunny Slopes Farm Engagement | Katie & Seth

I was so excited to spend some time with Katie & Seth at their engagement session at Sunny Slopes Farm in Harrisonburg, Virgina. I have known Katie since college (which feels like a million years ago) where we worked together at Texas Roadhouse. Katie’s upbeat, driven personality always inspired me and we became good friends. Fast […]

The day was rainy yet extremely romantic and Kate & Ben were getting married at William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.

Bethesda Maryland Wedding | Kristina & Shawn

I can’t tell you how excited I was to go to Kristina & Shawn’s wedding in Bethesda, Maryland. There was something different about this couple and I couldn’t pin point it. I felt as if these two were old high school friends and that we were actually going to just hang out with them instead of […]




I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
