you once said, why give me flowers? i don’t keep them alive anyway

 well, i may not be the haven of horticulture… 

 but that doesn’t mean that i didn’t feel every petal
 beneath my fingertips gently cherishing the
softness, or breathe in the life of each flower -
appreciating it for its time on earth for me admire. 

but maybe i loved them too much, overwatering
them with my anxiety to keep them alive, and yet
ironically overpowering them with too much 

- an excerpt from a poem by Jenna Brower

Pink Moon

“Even if you are a small forest surviving off of moon alone; your light is extraordinary.” -Nayyirah Waheed

“Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.” - Anais Nin

“I don’t pay attention to the world ending. It has ended for me many times and began again in the morning.” - Nayyirah Waheed

Sam & Orry | Married

Okay, so I love dogs. I love shooting weddings. Put both together, and I couldn’t be a happier girl. Radar and Lulu almost stole the show, except Sam and Orry were radiating so much love on their wedding day.  There were all kinds of gorgeous, intentional details; from their color palette to the fact that Sam arrived to her wedding on a boat. 

But the most stunning part of photographing this day was watching two best friends say, “Yes, I choose you,” for the rest of their lives. 

Proposal at Inn at Perry Cabin

Sometimes blessings are plopped right into your lap when you least expect it and being able to capture Neil and Emma’s engagement was totally one of those times. This was literally coordinated the day before. I was free, so obviously I was ready to roll. Surprise proposals are some of my favorite shoots; you can probably attribute that to the fact that I get to play secret spy for a bit while I wait for it to unfold. They couldn’t have picked a more gorgeous spot in St. Michaels for such a special moment in their lives. 

Anniversary in Easton’s Historic Garden

Just a little over a year ago, I shot Amanda and David’s offbeat, intimate ceremony at the Historic Pemberton Park in Salisbury, MD. Shooting their 1 year anniversary portrait was just as lovely; I love having them in front of my lens! :)
