I've
always been
storyteller.

But I never set out to be a photographer. I was (and still am!) going to be a writer. And then as I worked toward that writing goal, someone put a camera in my hand and asked me to try telling stories with something besides words. So with an English nerd's love for character and tone, a romantic's love for poignant beauty, and a realist's love for imperfection, I dove in.

I've
always been a
story-teller.

That was back in 2010.

Since that time, photography has changed much of my life. It's brought me some of my dearest friends. It's reshaped the way my husband Danny and I view serving others. It has even literally taken me around the world. One thing that hasn't changed: my soul-stirring desire to tell stories that feel so real you're sure you knew them before you heard them. Or saw them. It's my privilege to tell those stories for my clients, and for the generations of their families still to come.

When I first heard from Ava and Scott, it was because Ava knew Chelsie and Josh, and I figured that’s what happens in a fairly small town, particularly in the horse community. Then I learned Ava’s family breeds Arabian horses, and I realized this was more than just a small-town coincidence: her family bred my […]

This is it — our final shoot of 2014, hitting the blog as our final entry of 2014, and it’s a great one! Earlier this month, Deneice and John reached out to us because they attended Erena and Jesse‘s wedding last summer, and after they saw Erena and Jesse’s pictures, they decided they wanted to remember […]

When we first talked about their wedding, back in June, something happened that we’d never experienced with another bride during a pre-wedding meeting before: As Brittany and Justin sat in their house and I sat in mine, on the other end of a Skype call, Brittany got all choked up, and I even saw a few […]

Chelsie emailed us this summer only a few days after Josh had popped the question, while their families vacationed together in the Keys, and we couldn’t have been more excited for them. We not only had previously met both Chelsie and Josh, thanks to Taylor and Jerry, but had photographed them both in 2012, before they were a couple: Chelsie […]

Back in July, we shot engagement portraits with my cousin Christine and her fiance Greg in Rockville, Maryland — and we promised there was more to come. Engagement Session 2.0 happened this past weekend, when we headed to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware with them for some pictures in the little beach town where they had their first […]

Steph and James are one of those couples we met thanks to friends — and we found out we shared a lot of friends, but our paths never crossed until they got engaged late in the spring and set out on the hunt for a wedding photographer. They had met each other at a Bible study, […]
