lets put a face to the name

no. 1


I am a wedding + elopement photographer serving Virginia, Washington, DC, Maryland and beyond. My goal every time I pick up my camera is to create an atmosphere that invites my subjects to show up as their honest and truest selves. I am so passionate about the power of stories told through the lens of a camera, and being entrusted to capture that for my couples will forever be such an honor.

But behind the camera, I’m a margarita loving, adventure seeking, spicy chicken sandwich obsessed kind of girl. I love Jesus, mountain views, my dog, the Office, and a good sunrise. Oh, and I can’t ever write a bio without mentioning my love for bagels (seriously if I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would 100% be bagels).

so happy you made it here

the heart
of it all

It’s so important to me to become more than just a vendor to my clients. After all, you're getting married and you deserve a wedding photographer who you love and trust fully to capture your best day. 

I’m here for the people who aren’t afraid to do things a little different, the ones who care less about the production of it all and more about being fully present. Because at the end of the day, I don’t just care about what your day looks like through the lens of the camera. I care about what it feels like. When you look at your photos, you’ll remember how you felt in that moment; and I promise you’ll love your photos that much more when they remind you of genuine, real moments instead of fake, forced ones -
no matter how good they look.

SO if you’re just simply looking for a person to show up with expensive camera gear and tell you exactly where to look and stand, and snap some pretty photos, I’ll tell you right now - I’m not the photographer for you! But if you want a photographer who genuinely wants to have a friendship with the two of you, who is in your corner from day one and is invested in making your wedding experience one to remember...
you’re in the right place!
