“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” -Dr. Seuss


What is your style of photography?
I could probably go on and on about this but to keep it simple – my goal as a lifestyle photographer is to capture your moment in its purest form. The idea is that at the end of the day, you’ll be able to look back at your images and see a story unfurl in a pure and natural way – I want you to look like yourself but also have the photos reflect these amazing moments.

I recognize that being in front of the camera can be awkward for some people but my goal is always to help you relax, look your best and to have a good time.

What kind of equipment do you use?
Currently, I am a Canon shooter. Both of my cameras are digital although you may see me with a film camera from time to time. Both my cameras and lenses are of high quality and I always have backups. The equipment is very important and you should have faith that I will use every available tool to get you the best images possible.

Do you travel?
Happily! For sessions that are more than 30 miles from zip code 20019, the studio will assess a travel fee.

What about a destination wedding?
First of all, congratulations! Second, I’m there! For your destination wedding the rates are simply the negotiated cost of your event plus travel and accommodations.

Can I have the raw images?
Unfortunately, the answer to that is no.

How will I get my images?
Images will be delivered to you in a digital gallery. If you’d like to have them on a usb or CD/DVD – I’m more than happy to do that for you as well at a nominal cost.

Can I print photos/use them on social media?
All sessions come with a digital print release which grants you the right to print your photos. You are absolutely welcome to use photos on social media but I kindly ask that you give credit 🙂

How many images will I get?/When will I get to see them?
Most sessions, with the exception of weddings are returned within 14-21 days, sometimes(!) sooner. Because weddings often require a bit more work on my end due to the large number of images, return of those images are within the 6-8 week range.All sessions are different so the number of images you will receive varies from client to client.

Weddings will typically see somewhere in the neighborhood of 4-600 images although this greatly varies depending on the length of your wedding. Long story short? I’ve got you covered!

How do I book my session?
After we agree on a date, I will email you a contract to digitally sign. Once you’ve signed your contract, and paid your 50% deposit, your date is held and I am yours!

How do I pay for my session?
I currently accept checks, money orders, cash, credit cards (3% fee) and paypal. A 50% deposit is required for all sessions when you sign and return your contract. Until that has been received, I reserve the right to accept other work.

THE GRAM

  • Yes, sometimes we walk out into the middle of the street at dusk and do a thing.
  • Wendy and George wanted to share a few words before their #woodendsanctuary #wedding ceremony but not see one another. We couldn't find the blindfold, so we improvised. 
Wedding days require you to be flexible and creative. The day is a whirlwind and you'll blink and it's over. My goal is to bee the person who's there for you but you never really notice.
  • I am a certified smile chaser. I should actually put that on a t-shirt, tbh. Ask anyone who had been in front of my camera and they will tell you that I talk and joke a lot because I rent everyone (including myself!) to have a good time.
  • This boy. This girl. I just can't stop smiling at how happy and easy they were. Everything about their big day was the absolute sweetest and I can't wait to share more of it with you.
  • Professionally, 2018 has been outstanding for me. So many fantastic faces have found their way in front of my camera and as I just took a moment to stop before another triple header wedding weekend - I think to myself that I'm happy. 
Life is not perfect. Not even close. But it's better when we try to focus on the goodness and light. I KNOW that this can be an easier said than done thing - but my mama always said nothing beats a failure but a try :) These two stunning humans are Sophie + Quinn who #eloped here in DC in the midst of a new cross-country job change with guests from all over, including the UK. Also, Sophie's mom MADE her #bridalbouquet (and ALL of the other florals) and it was just a very sweet and intimate day.
  • This is Marques + Kelly and clearly you can tell from their #engagementphotos that they're just not that into each other 🤣
  • Me, reading the news lately. 
Terrible news side - please to be bringing all of your cute #children to me for fall #minisessions (info in bio!) so that you can actually send your #holiday cards on time :)

  • This is Jeff and he does very important things with money.  Evergreen reminder that when we're doing a #portrait session for your business/career, it can be both professional AND reflect who you are as a person.  Although those sessions generally are more traditional #headshots - we definitely can and will mix things up for you.
