+ me:

Hey I’m Hannah! I am a wedding + elopement photographer based out of Northern Virginia but I’ll go anywhere and everywhere for my couples! Traveling all over to photograph people who are crazy in love is truly a dream and I can’t imagine doing anything else.

But behind the camera, I’m a margarita loving, adventure seeking, spicy chicken sandwich obsessed kind of girl. I love mountain views, my plant babies, 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).

+ my heart

It’s so important to me to become more than just a vendor to my clients. After all, lets be real…you’re getting MARRIED I have no doubt that you want an amazing wedding photographer who you love and trust 100% to capture your best day.

I’m here for the brides and grooms 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. I don’t just care about what your day looks like through the lens of the camera, I care about what it feels like. Because when you look at your photos, you’ll remember how you felt in that moment; and I promise you, you’ll love your photos that much more when they remind you of genuine, raw moments instead of fake, forced ones. 

If you’re just looking for a person to show up with a fancy camera and snap some photos, I’ll tell ya right now, I’m not the photographer for you! But if you want a photographer who genuinely wants to have a connection with the two of you and is invested in making your wedding experience as great as possible, you’re in the right place!

So what do you say? Let's chat about your special day and make your dream wedding photos come to life.

 You’ve got questions? I’ve got answers!
Here are the questions I most commonly get. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have others!


Q & A

Question
 
Answer
 

Do you travel?

 

uhh HECK YEAH! I love traveling to capture love stories all over the world. You dream up the place and I’m there!

 

How long have you been a photographer?

 

I started when I was 15, and shot my first wedding when I was 19, and I’ll be 22 this year!

 

Do you shoot seniors and graduation photos?

 

I love shooting seniors and graduates, but I only take on a handful of them throughout the year! Click here to see some senior photos I’ve taken! Visit my info tab to get information on pricing and shoot me a message if you’re interested in snagging one of the spots!

 

Do you send out your RAW images?

 

The answer to this will always and forever be no! Editing is such an important part of turning a photograph into my art and making it come to life. Without it, I don’t consider the images finished. Not to mention they are almost impossible to send due to their massive, uncompressed size!

 

What is required to book?

 

For weddings, I require 50% upfront with a signed contract and the remaining 50% 1 month before the wedding date.
For all other sessions, the same applies but the remaining amount is due the day of the session.

 

What is your turnaround time?

 

Typically, for sessions it takes 3 weeks or less, and weddings take 8 weeks or less. No matter what, I will always try to get your photos done as fast as possible while still giving each photo the proper care it deserves! I know how it feels to be a bride waiting on the other end for your photos.

 

How many images do you include?

 

Each one of my packages varies in the amount of images I promise to deliver. However, I don’t give a cutoff number because I never want to withhold images or memories from you. They are your memories for you to cherish for a lifetime!

 

Can I bring family and friends along for our session?

 

Nope! No one likes having an audience of people watching them as they smile, laugh, and have intimate moments. I think having people tag along is a huge killer of intimacy and creativity, so a smaller group is always better!

 

Do we pick the location for our shoot or do you?

 

This is one of my favorite parts of planning your session! My goal for every session is to make it an experience in itself, so it feels like just a fun date exploring with your best friend. If you have a sentimental spot or a bucket list adventure or location you have in mind, send it my way! Together we will brainstorm the and nail down the best spot for your session based on lighting and other logistics!

 Still got questions? No worries! Shoot me an email and I’ll get ya taken care of!
