ABOUT BRITTANY

meet brittany

...and I'll be your wedding photographer today! OK, maybe not today, but hopefully soon!

I'm a photographer for joyful brides and grooms who crave open skies, pretty pastures, country creeks, and tall, swishy grass. I kicked corporate America to the curb 10 years ago and haven't looked back! Weddings aren't just the marriage of two people, but the start of a new family - family is everything! My favorite weddings combine beautiful scenery + lots of good cheer. Also,  lots of cake, preferably with lemon filling.

Known for: a signature chocolate chip cookie, having lots of kids, love of men in uniform (well, one man specifically)

i'm 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 know for her serious sweet tooth, hair that most women pay good money for, shamelessly asking for tickles, and making up dances in the bathroom mirror.

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, razor-sharp, and would never want "alone time" in a million years.

A sprinkles aficionado and spicy food lover, she keeps going despite a total lack of sleep. 

Known for: saying things that border between hilarious/naughty, impulsively revoking your best friend rights

MEET Everly

hello there

My delicious meatball, my main man, my dinosaur-loving, bright-eyed, tiny prince.

Brooks Holden came into this world at 11 pounds 11 ounces and I did it with nary a painkiller in sight so yes, yes I can handle anything that happens on your wedding day. This rainbow baby is calm, low-key (it 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

MEET BROOKS

hello there

Also known as Mac, Moose, Macaroon, or "The Baby We Never Saw Coming."

Maguire Hayes rounds out the Final Four Thomas Babies and what! a! volunteer! Nearly as big as his brother, we don't mess around when it comes to sturdy kids. Truly hilarious, sweet-spirited, and fearless (please, get off the kitchen table), this boy keeps our hands and hearts filled to the brim. Plus, he's the baby, so he'll never do anything wrong.

Known for: open-mouth kissing, scaling the refrigerator, asking for lollipops 89 times a day
