ABOUT BRITTANY

ONE HUNDRED WEDDINGS LATER AND I'M STILL CRAZY ABOUT WHAT I DO.

I'm a photographer for fun-loving brides and grooms who crave open skies, pretty pastures, country creeks, and tall, swishy grass. My couples are easy going, joyful, and delight in each other every day. Weddings aren't just the marriage of two people, but the start of a new family and for me, family is everything. My favorite weddings combine beautiful scenery with deep-rooted traditions and love. Also dessert.

Known for: a signature chocolate chip cookie, crying at commercials, love of men in uniform (well, one man specifically)

MEET BRITTANY

hello there

The most thoughtful, hardest-working husband in the world. Looks great in uniform. Also looks great not in uniform.

This man stashed away bits of his paycheck for months to buy me my first "real" camera and he hasn't stopped cheering me on since. While we're not a traditional husband and wife team (you won't ever see him on a wedding day!), I couldn't run this business without his enduring love, patience, support, and coffee reheats. Oh, and he makes the cutest babies!

Known for: spending his weekends in the woods, a future farmer, back-of-the-greeting-card doodles

MEET JUSTIN

hello there

My heart outside of my body, my first born, my biggest girl. Sensitive, creative, pretty freaking adorable. 

Has a weird name with a special meaning. My first and favorite portrait subject. Reminds me every day to do something creative, special, or meaningful.

Also has a serious sweet tooth, hair that most women pay good money for, and she can sing every line to the Hymn of Joy because that's her style.

Known for: sneaking treats, a big imagination, wearing her big heart on her little sleeve

MEET QUINLAN

hello there

My second baby, born two weeks late in the middle of a snowstorm and it's been crazy ever since.

Everly Rowe, my second girl who filled a void we didn't know we had. She's named for Shab Row + Everedy Square in Frederick, MD where Justin and I spent so many of our dating days. She is sweet, intense, incredibly loud, and would never want "alone time" in a million years.

A sprinkles aficionado, she keeps going despite a total lack of sleep. 

Known for: eating anything remotely resembling dessert, revoking your best friend rights, no hair, don't care

MEET Everly

hello there

My delicious meatball, my main man, a fuzzy-headed, bright-eyed tiny prince.

Brooks Holden made our family complete. This rainbow baby brought us more hope, peace, and joy than we ever imagined. He's so clam and low-key (which makes us wonder how he could be ours because no one in our family has ever been described as "chill") and (mostly) happy all the time.

Named for: Brooks Robinson, Garth Brooks, Brooks + Dunn

Known for: laughing at his big sisters, eating nonstop, watching hunting shows with Dad
