Amanda & Anthony’s Fall District Winery DC Wedding was filled with so much fun and love!

CITY WEDDINGS! We love them and their chic sophistication and history. They are so popular and have been for years, for good reason! However, there are a lot of logistics to keep in mind when you’re getting married in the city, versus say a quiet vineyard in the countryside of Virginia. So I thought I’d […]
“Rain or Shine” That was the the motto of these two avid outdoors lovers, and one that couldn’t have been more fitting as it POURED for hours during their Rawlings Conservatory Baltimore Elopement.

BEHIND THE LENS
Ever-focused on light and the thrilling art of creation; found in the perfectly, imperfect moments of real life.
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 allowing me to capture the feeling of this irreplaceable moment in time. Storytelling is at the heart of it all, and being entrusted to capture that for my couples will forever be one of the greatest honors.
