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.

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.

Christine + Greg – Rehoboth Beach Engagement Portraits

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

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 date on July 4, 2005, where they’ve celebrated their anniversary every year since, and where they’ll be getting married next summer, on the tenth anniversary of that first date. It couldn’t have been a more perfect place to continue their story.

We started out wandering around town and along the boardwalk . . .

And even though I’m from a beach town, I love visiting other beach towns, especially ones farther up the coast. There’s just a different feel to the beach in the Mid Atlantic.Rehoboth Beach engagementEngagement photography Rehoboth BeachMy favorite reason to photograph engagement sessions: I love getting to see how much couples love each other. Not just on the wedding day, but when it’s quiet, when it’s just the two of them.
