I'm a photographer for fun-loving brides and grooms who crave open skies, pretty pastures, country creeks, and tall, swishy grass. I love old farmhouses, great big buckets of flowers, and couples who delight in each other every day. I don't think of weddings as just the marriage of two people, but the start of a new family and for me...family is everything.
We live a little off the beaten path (seriously, we don't even have high-speed Internet) but I love traveling all over the tri-state area for weddings in Central Maryland, Frederick, the Eastern Shore, and wherever else my awesome clients take me.
Hey there and welcome - I'm so glad you found me! I’m Brittany, a wedding and lifestyle photographer living in map-dot Greencastle, PA, just north of the Western Maryland state line. I have big teeth, a lack of what some might call an "indoor voice," and a knack for baked goods that makes me grateful to own multiple pairs of stretch pants.
I’m sort of famous for my chocolate chip cookies, although photographing beautiful weddings is a close second. Along with those two things, I spend my days drinking Arnold Palmer’s by the gallon (the glorious combination of sweet tea + lemonade, not the golfer), chasing two barefoot babies through our backyard, admiring how dreamy my husband looks when he's chopping wood, and fearing for my life anytime our rooster gets out.
1. I have a restaurant-grade waffle iron - waffles all the time!
2. I love The Office, I've seen every episode at least twice.
3. We live in a log cabin. It's a lot of wood.
4. I hope to own a Bed + Breakfast on the water some day.
Graduated college and dove headfirst into the corporate world. I wrote a food blog in my spare time.
Met a dreamy police officer on eHarmony and he proposed 8 months later. I threw up when he asked. (Not kidding.)
My corporate job handed out layoffs. I threw all my energy into my photography business (switching from cupcakes to brides wasn't too bad!). Quinlan Justine was born.
I'm shooting 15 weddings a year, corralling backyard chickens, and chasing babies. Life is pretty good!
We closed on our house and were married 2 weeks later...and pregnant 12 weeks after that.
Everly Rowe was born in the middle of a blizzard, two weeks past her due date.
My husband. My best friend. My #1 encourager. He also makes pretty cute babies.
And everything that goes with it! Camping, baskets of sweet strawberries, and homemade peach jam.
Also waffles, pie of any variety, chocolate cake, salted-caramel-anything. I'll wash it all down with an Arnold Palmer.
My couples are pretty much the best people in the world. They're funny, big-hearted, and are willing to overlook my cookie addiction.
They plan details that are not only beautiful but meaningful, too.They love open skies, family traditions, side-splitting laughter, and they know graciousness never goes out of style.
Guys. I have 21 first cousins alone. I love big, fun (sometimes loud) families. We give a lot of hugs.
So when you're standing at the altar and you look out at the crowd - your family who seems insane to any outsider but you aren't complete without - if you can proudly say, "THESE ARE MY PEOPLE!"...
Then I am your girl.
I grew up in the suburbs, ya'll. And even typing that last word feels strange, but I LOVE SAYING IT. I never thought I'd be living in a log cabin, or that I'd see a dozen chickens roaming the backyard through my kitchen window...
But we're doing it, baby! We're doing it!
(Next up: the garden and the orchard!)
I come to your wedding day not as a vendor but as a friend. Wedding photography should be an experience you enjoy as part of your special day and should never feel like a chore. How you feel about your wedding photographer directly affects the outcome of your images and it is always my hope to create timeless, fun, and original photos that are full of joy and life.
I adore weddings that combine beautiful scenery - waterfront, pastures, forests, elegant barns - with deep-rooted family traditions and love. I want you to enjoy interacting naturally with a small amount of input from me to create the best images possible.
I believe your wedding experience with me begins long before your wedding day - from the first e-mail to the final image delivery, I strive to provide prompt service, personalized attention, and plenty of love.
Oh my Lord, how I adore these people with my whole heart. To the moon and back. To infinity and beyond. A handsome police officer I met online who makes breakfast and splits wood and gave me two beautiful daughters. The one who doesn't have a negative bone in his body, my biggest supporter and encourager.
I can hardly believe they are mine all mine.
Because I take a limited number of wedding bookings each year, it's always my hope that I'm the perfect fit for each and every one. Please contact me for extra details on wedding packages and availability.
All packages include two photographers, high-resolution images and a complimentary engagement session.

Her images are creative, they reflect the personality of our wedding, and they are simply beautiful. I am obsessed with our wedding pictures, and I know we'll treasure them always.
Brittany was far and above my favorite "vendor" for my wedding. I have to use quotes around vendor because after our first meeting we were instant friends. I am telling you people...she does amazing work.
Her work is flawless, stunning and her attention to detail is impeccable.She helped calm both our wedding jitters and not only did we have so much fun working with her, our families loved her, too!
She is funny, light-hearted, and clearly passionate about what she does. My wife and I were beyond thrilled with the pictures we received from our wedding! Brittany takes a personalized approach to your wedding that shows in her distinctively flawless images.
Brittany is so sweet and does a great job of making you comfortable in front of the camera. Her pictures come out so romantic, intimate, and fun. I am over the moon happy about how many I have to choose from and how stunning they turned out.
