Annie & Ryan || Raccoon Creek Engagement Session

April 28, 2021

At the peak of last October’s glorious fall colors, I met up with Annie and Ryan at Raccoon Creek State Park. I have photographed many engagement sessions at this particular park over the years but Annie and Ryan were the first couple to bring a canoe with them. We saved the canoe photos until near […]

Abby & Alex || Old Ellicott City Engagement Session

April 23, 2021

Right after this past Christmas, I met up with Abby and Alex to photograph their engagement session in downtown Old Ellicott City, MD. I have photographed a couple engagement sessions in this cute little historic town and it is such a fun location. Being there right after Christmas meant this little town was decked out […]

Kody & Chris || Raccoon Creek Engagement Session

April 20, 2021

Kody & Chris met on Catholic Match three years ago and their mutual love for Christ & the Catholic Faith, the Traditional Latin Mass, hiking and traveling quickly drew them together. I photographed their engagement session last October and I had a great time getting to know them and exploring Raccoon Creek Park with them. […]

Emily & David || Jewel Toned April Wedding

April 16, 2021

Brightly colored jewel tones, tiny bee charms, little jars of honey, gorgeous florals, and white flowering trees all came together to create a stunning backdrop for Emily and David’s April wedding. It’s been several years since I’ve photographed an April wedding (I was supposed to do several last April, but of course those got moved) […]

Easter Brunch & April Flowers

April 9, 2021

I was in college when I first discovered my love for hosting. Each year that I stayed at Franciscan for Easter, I would host a big brunch with my roommates for our other friends. It became a tradition of sorts and I thrived in the role of hostess every year. I think one of the […]

Emily & David || Steubenville Ohio Engagement Session

April 7, 2021

Remember when I said I was going to start posting all the engagement sessions from last Fall? Well life got a little busy again and once again I fell behind with blogging. But Emily and David are getting married this coming Saturday so I figured I had to share their engagement session with you all […]

Caroline & Mike || Franciscan University Engagement Session

March 25, 2021

Spring has come in full force here so it might seem kind of silly to be sharing an engagement session from October, but here we are. I actually have about a dozen engagement sessions that I never blogged from October to now and I decided the best way to share them will be chronologically! So […]

Last weekend on a sunny March Saturday, Kayla and Kieran were married in the gorgeous St. Therese Chapel at St. Helena’s Catholic Parish in Blue Bell, PA.

Lauren & Cody || Timeless Wedding at The Pennsylvanian

February 18, 2021

Two years ago, Cody was walking into adoration when he innocently held the door open for a beautiful woman who was walking in behind him. Little did he know that just a few years later he would be watching that same woman walk down the aisle to him in the very same church. How fitting […]

Best of 2020 Weddings

February 15, 2021

2020. Phew, what a year. When I think back on all 20 of my weddings last year, a few words jump out to me immediately: gratitude, sacrifice, and joy. Each of my couples went through so much leading up to their wedding days and I truly believe that their marriages will be stronger for it. […]

On the eve of the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Michaela and Dan were married at St. Bede the Venerable Catholic Church by the same priest who had baptized Michaela and her twin sister when they were babies.

Kateri & Patrick || A Joyful Urban Proposal

October 28, 2020

Way back near the beginning of September, I got a DM from Patrick asking if I thought it would be possible to photograph his proposal later on in the fall. Not a lot of people know this, but I have been secretly wanting to photograph a proposal for years so needless to say, I was […]

Tessa & Zack || Shrine of St. Anthony Wedding

Tessa & Zack were married on a beautiful, rainy October day at the Shrine of St. Anthony in Ellicott City MD. It was, in fact, supposed to be the day that Hurricane Delta brought pouring rain to Maryland. Originally, Tessa & Zack’s entire wedding day was going to be outside, starting with an outdoor wedding Mass […]
