I knew Jenna and Jon were going to be a BLAST to photograph. I could just tell from our email exchanges. I met them at their cute little Airbnb in Harpers Ferry to kick off the couple’s photo session. After some couch lounging and pillow fightin’, we walked around the upper portion of town and ended at one of my favorite spots.Continue reading “Harpers Ferry Couple Photos: Jenna and Jon”

On a chilly day in January, a beautiful Belle told me she was working on a Yasha Cosplay. I patiently waited for the cosplay to be done. And, of course, while we were making plans to meetup at a D.C. Cosplay group event with other Critical Role fans COVID happened and ruined everyones life.Continue reading “Critical Role Cosplay”
Viking LARP couple photos? Count me IN! I am here to make cosplay couples, historical couples, themed couples, offbeat couples (whatever you want to call them) the next “trend” in photography. When Piper mentioned that she and her husband have Viking live action role playing costumes, I basically made them come take photos with me.Continue reading “Viking LARP Couple Photos, Harpers Ferry”

Are you tired of seeing the name Ballenger Farm on my blog yet? I’m not! It is such a cute farm venue that can be transformed into anything magical. Someone even had a picnic wedding, and the photos looked like a scene out of a Jane Austen novel. But, enough gushing about Ballenger. On to the styled shoot and another great vendor: Blooming Arrow Events.Continue reading “Ballenger Farm Wedding, Hamilton Virginia: Fairytale Styled Shoot”

“So, how did you two meet?”
“Well, it’s super redneck, but I asked her out over instagram.”
In case you didn’t know, it’s redneck to ask someone out over instagram. 😆 I guess I’m redneck too because I asked Charlie if she wanted to do an engagement session with me at Bears Den Overlook over instagram.
Alyssa and Nick had plans for mountain views and waterfalls for their wedding in June, but then the pandemic happened. What I love most about these two is that they didn’t let that stop them. They still gathered all their best people around them and celebrated their love. Even though it wasn’t exactly what they wanted, it was still uniquely them. They worked hard on making their Hagerstown, Maryland backyard a beautiful space to hold a wedding ceremony.
When I first pulled up, guests were already gathering around the house and helping to get things in order. The atmosphere was one of love and celebration.
Sarah and Tyler met me at Baker Park in Frederick, Maryland on a beautiful summer evening in July. They were my first photoshoot back since the pandemic started, and I was really excited to start photographing couples again.
Baker Park packs a lot of punch in a small space as far as photos are concerned. You have the beautiful bell tower, the awesome stadium, the tunnels under the bridges, and everything was in bloom since it was the height of summer.
Click, click, click. I was doing what we all do when we scroll through Netflix, looking at the images attached to the show to see if I wanted to *actually* watch any of them. When it comes to TV, I tend to judge a show by its cover.
Violet Evergarden stopped me mid-scroll, which is hard to accomplish. I was immediately drawn in by the wind-swept dress, letters, and artfully drawn light. I wasn’t really sure what I was getting into because I never read the synopsis. The story and the beautiful sun drenched scenes were totally bingeable.Continue reading “Violet Evergarden Cosplay Photoshoot”
