I launched my photography business in 2009 after I graduated from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, DC with a Bachelors of Fine Art Photography. While my time in the big city was an experience I'll never forget, I couldn't deny the pull to return to the beautiful little island nestled in the heart of the Chesapeake Bay where I was raised. I believe the root of my passion for documenting life's moments lies in the idyllic landscape of my childhood home. It's a quaint fisherman’s village of weathered old docks, work boats, and high tides, and it's where I learned to appreciate the little details of the everyday and embrace my undying love for the water. My island inspires me beyond measure. It's where I go to spark the creative spirit, and filter out all the noise. Taking cues from nature, I strive to incorporate natural light and beauty into all of my work, letting my photos speak for themselves.
Each year, we choose between one and three wedding vendors from several different categories to feature as our “handpicked” vendors. For 2013, winners were chosen through the Chesapeake Bridal Awards. Based on their phenomenal work in the wedding industry, strong reputations, and incredible talent, we feel that these are some of the best in the Chesapeake area. For 2013, these bridal and wedding shops have earned our Handpicked seal of approval!
