Frederick, MD Family Portraits | The Laymans

Hello and good morning from the icy depths of January, the worst month of the year! Like most of the East Coast, we’re buried under several inches of snow, but I’m a housecat by nature and canceling everything on my schedule for the day feels nice. Although suiting up four children into snow gear feels […]

BEHIND THE LENS 

ABOUT BRITTANY

After 12 years and over 200 weddings, I've created a wedding experience that is completely unfussy and truly irresistible.

Exceptional, gorgeous photography doesn’t have to be so serious; it can be playful and celebratory. Wanna know what lights me up? Unscripted, in-between moments on fast-paced wedding days and salty cocktail hour snacks. It’s been a thrill to see my work featured in magazines and online, but I’m proudest of all the brides who turned into friends.

ready to get this show on the road?

Something Wonderful

I'd love to hear from you! I take a limited number of wedding commissions annually - most clients reserve my services a year in advance. Every proposal is customized based on your day, vision, and needs.
