I love late traveling nights, real laughs, genuine love, fresh air, and the kind of dream clients way ahead of us when it comes to going on an adventure. If you're into photos that feel as real as you are, you want your memories made to last, and you'd like to make a new friend in the process, keep scrolling, I can't wait to meet you.

Welcome TO

You know how in the movies someone always has love at first sight, thats how I felt talking on the phone with Erica! We literally got along so well as soon as she reached out to me. We have the same style, our dog has the same name, and our dark sense of humor is […]

Wooo it feels like forever since I’ve hopped on the blog but I am so pumped to bring you this gorgeous cloudy downtown Annapolis engagement session of Marley & Brandon! I met Marley through one of my brides & grooms, Kim & Tyler (Find their wedding blog post here). Marley is so sweet so when […]

I flipping adore Julia & Kyle, we click so well, I couldn’t wait for their wedding day! It finally arrived and it was a true November day, cold but beautiful. If you ever get the chance to stay at Skytop Lodge in PA, you really should! Julia & Kyle are such sweethearts, so it was […]

Obviously, when Amanda told me she was bringing their dog Gunner to their engagement session I was instantly pumped! She also brought her maid of honor, Anna, which I thought was super sweet because I LOVE being friends with the whole bridal party. It just makes the whole wedding day flow so much easier! I […]

When I arrived at Jessica + Garrett’s home, I knew today was going to be so fun! The girls were dancing their hearts out to 90’s throwbacks and sippin’ beers. The ceremony site was getting set up in the back yard, which was so beautiful. The arch was custom made by the pillars of the […]

Let me just start off by saying it was the first whopping 50 degrees we’ve had in the morning and Courtney & Tommy took it like champs. Since it was sunrise, being on the beach was sooo gorgeous and Courtney picked the PERFECT dress for beach shots! We stopped by the beach club house which […]

Amy & I have been becoming close friends lately so naturally I’ve photographed her family twice in a weeks span haha! One of those sessions was an in-home lifestyle session with her sweet family. Amy & Brady are the kindest people ever and I get along with them really well, they have a sweet baby […]

This wedding day was a dream, it couldn’t have been more perfect! Lauren had the most beautiful dress ever, Josh cried when he saw the love of his life walk down the isle, and their reception was the best reception I’ve EVER been to. It was epic. You could tell Lauren and the planners at […]

SHE SAID YES! Carder & MacKenzie have been dating for about two years now, and when you know.. you know! Carder reached out to me a couple months ago to start planning this engagement, I was sooo pumped! He had planned to propose with his grandmothers ring! The day before he proposed we drove down […]

Hanna + BJ have been on my 2019 wedding list for a long time, I was so excited that their wedding day has finally come! Hanna and BJ were surrounded by so many friends & family, 200 to be exact! It was so lovely seeing that many people watch these two love birds tie the […]

I met Jennifer & Matt at Riley & Stephen’s wedding! Matt was a groomsmen in the wedding and was literally putting a smile on everyones faces. I met Jennifer that night while photographing her & Matt dancing their feet off! When I got an email from Jennifer asking me to be her wedding photographer I […]

I drove a solid 8hrs both ways for this engagement session for Keri & Mark in the beautiful Wilmington, NC area! Needless to say it was SO worth it! We wandered around downtown, Keri & Mark got some beers, then we headed to Wrightsville’s Beach which was AMAZING. They brought their pup and I brought […]

I photographed Tina & Randy till the sun literally went down, it was so much fun running around downtown St Michaels photographing these two’s engagement! The wedding venue they’re getting married at is right outside of downtown, so it was only fitting I captured them in this cute town. We started at muskrat park, moved […]

This isn’t Morgan’s first time in front of my lens and hopefully not the last! I love this girl! She is so incredibly smart, has a huge heart and talent for teaching little ones, she is so kind to everyone she meets (I don’t know how she does this) and she is so generous. Morgan […]

Happy Birthday Hailey! I captured Hailey + Jake’s session last night and the weather was beautiful! They brought along their three pups and y’all know I’m the crazy dog lady so I was all about it. Hailey & I have known each other since middle school so I was SUPER excited when she asked me […]

Tonights sunset was so beautiful – and so you can guess that this session was also AMAZING. Fancy the Unicorn (held at Worthmore Equestrian Center) is so incredibly patient and so loving with little ones. Of course, Paisley is in LOVE with Fancy so we had to set up a Unicorn session! These amazing flowers […]

Emily & Jacob have a similar story to Hunter & I, so it was clear getting along would be super easy. They both grew up in Maryland, met in Tampa and moved back to Maryland! So they knew all the same streets I knew in Tampa which was super refreshing to hear in Maryland! These […]

Lizzy & Brian are very loyal clients of mine, I have captured so many memories over the years for them and I was so honored to capture their day. They tied the knot right in front of the water on her Grandmothers farm and the weather was beautiful! Their flowers were just a huge range […]

Okay, not gonna lie when Faith reached out to me asking to set up a 30th birthday party including a peacock chair, lots of florals and a field.. I was SOOO excited. We planned this shoot for so long and everything fell together perfectly. I picked up the peacock chair from Sunnyside & Co…. It […]

It was a 4hr round trip to get to Jessica & Garrett’s engagement session – SO worth it. This is my first fall session so far this year and I am living for it. So excited for the chillier weather to swing around and stay for awhile. Having a complimentary engagement session in your wedding […]

Happy Labor Day! Kristen & Jason are both police officers, so getting them in my schedule was super tricky but we made it work AND got super lucky with the weather. The sunset that night was flipping amazing. Kristen is a photographer herself, so I got some new headshots for her during their session as […]

Amanda and I spent the whole morning wandering downtown Annapolis finding all the cute spots and even ended up in a small flower shop and getting some fresh blooms! It was so refreshing meeting up with another photographer and taking their headshots, and even just chatting about the photo world! Enjoy these photos of beautiful […]

Let me just start with saying that RYAN PROPOSED IN DISNEY!! How flipping cool is that?!? Also, they brought their beautiful dog with them and he just happened to have the same name as my dog! Jackson (their pup) was SO good during their engagement session. We even got a shot of the ring balancing […]

Kim & Tyler’s wedding was 70 degrees – in AUGUST. How awesome is that?! Their wedding day was filled with a bunch of awesome details… first, how BEAUTIFUL are their rings from Brilliant Earth?
