Behind the Scenes 2015 DC & Baltimore, Maryland Fine Art Photographer

Can you believe that we’re already halfway through December? With wedding season officially over for 2015, I am so excited to spend the next few weeks reflecting on the season and showing off some of my favorite parts!  Today’s post however is one of my favorites to share because it gives me an opportunity to share all the aspects of my job on a wedding day… I think you’ll agree that I wear quite a few different hats!  Enjoy a peek of what it looks like for me behind the scenes on a wedding day!  A big thank you to Nichole Meredith & Bekah Kay Creative for capturing these images!! Happy Tuesday, friends!

You can usually find me…

Remember when it poured the whole wedding day? We made it work!

I promise that I don’t often go shoeless at a wedding…

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.
