I'm based in historic Gettysburg, PA where I'm usually hanging out in the kitchen with a swarm of small children and a glass of ice cold rosé. I'm an artist by choice, baker by birth, and Jesus follower for life.
My images are most often described as soft, romantic, and enduring - I love to use a combination of classic film and digital mediums to preserve moments forever. I've photographed over 125 weddings from the mountains of Maryland to the beaches of Key Largo - I hope yours is next!
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!
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.
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.
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
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.
This includes multiple hugs, crying at some point during your wedding, and loving you well.
I'll tell your story without becoming too much a part of it. I'll let you be you.

There is no fear in love. We love because He first loved us.

Deep-rooted family traditions, love, your tribe, your people. It's the very best.
I strive to provide prompt service, personalized attention, and plenty of love.
Chocolate chip, molasses, snickerdoodles, peanut butter, oatmeal - what could be wrong?
Don't plan your wedding on Pinterest - make it special and meaningful to YOU.
