I'm a full time wedding photographer currently based out of Baltimore, Maryland. I love traveling, my hubby, all animals (except maybe snakes... from a distance they are cool) and pretty much anything that takes me outside.  
 
I've been a wedding photographer for about 8 years (but have been studying photography since I was 13). I've explored quite a few avenues in photography, but I've found my niche capturing weddings. There's nothing more rewarding or humbling to get to have the responsibility of documenting one of the most important days of a couple's life. 
 
I'm not about stiff awkward poses of your relationship. I'm about the genuine, quirky, sarcastic, teasing, loving, quiet, loud, fun, and unique love that you have.  
 
I wanna capture the real stuff for you. I wanna get the big moments, the in-betweens, the ones you don't think anyone else is watching. I'm not a story teller, I'm a story listener. Tell me about your story, and lets create something beautiful for you.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am located outside of Washington DC. I travel up to 100 miles without a travel fee. I do offer Adventure sessions at locations I am traveling to for no additional travel fee.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been running my own wedding photographer business for 10 years ! But I have been behind the camera since I was 8 years old.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My style is Bold, Adventurous, and Real

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

My typical package is 8 hours of coverage and includes an engagement session. The cost is $4000.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I am happy to meet you in person and grab a drink or we can Skype, FaceTime, etc.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I have a degree in photography and have taken many many workshops in wedding photography.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

When I am not shooting weddings I am traveling the world. I have been to all Seven Continents. I use my photography to tell a story of life beyond what we see. I do alot of documentary and wildlife photography.
