Dulany’s Overlook Tuscan Inspired Wedding | Olivia + Craig

Love is what carries you, for it is always there, even in the dark, or most in the dark, but shining out at times like gold stitches in a piece of embroidery.  -Wendell Berry What an absolute joy it was to photograph Olivia and Craig’s wedding day at Dulany’s Overlook!

Blush + Green Dulany’s Overlook Wedding

I’ve been really lucky to work at Dulany’s Overlook in Frederick, MD a few times this year and Rachel and Andrew’s sun-soaked day was one of the best!

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?

What are we celebrating? A growing baby bump? A newborn with thigh rolls? An upcoming graduation? A "we really need fresh family photos, like, really bad"? Get in touch and we'll make it happen.

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.
