I'm a Maryland transplant from the Midwest where 20 below is a real thing. I'm addicted to coffee, and love all things pasta, chocolate, and cocktails.

Did someone say cocktails?!? My husband and I love sitting at the bar at our favorite restaurants in Annapolis and ordering fancy beverages. It's intimate, it's fun, and we love the playful nature of a creative drink to bring people together. If we can't get out for drinks, you can find us making cocktails at home to sip on the dock after our two daughters go to bed.

Drop me a note to tell me your favorite cocktail and I'll tell you my favorite local drink spots!

I believe in capturing the real story. There's something poetic about using images to tell a narrative. The imagery comes to life as a visual journal that documents the moments you experienced, and resurfaces thoughts and emotions when you look at them.

As a bright and lively wedding photographer, we'll work together to capture everything you're thinking and feeling (minus the jitters!) so you can relive the occasion as often as you desire.

Will you write me a message and allow me to help you tell your love story?
