I make it easy.

So what sets me apart?

As an experienced Maryland wedding photographer, I've dealt with challenging:

  • Rainy Wedding Days
  • Bridal Suites with little to no natural light 
  • Wardrobe Malfunctions - It happens!
  • Rowdy Groomsmen
  • Large, opinionated families *takes one to know one* 

I handle the tough stuff so you can focus on soaking in all the meaningful moments that matter.

What if you could have a wedding photographer who confidently troubleshoots on the big day so you didn't have to?

and more!

Well let me make this easy for you (that's my specialty!). You can be excited, joyful & as stress-free as possible on your wedding day.

Unbothered, girl. That's the goal.

You need someone who:

  • Prioritizes communication. From planning your timeline to styling your engagement photos, you'll always be in the know with me.

  • Can adapt on the fly. Flexibility is my middle name. It's true, the wedding day isn't always perfect and sometimes we are forced to alter our original plan. And if we end up running a bit behind, we work it out.

  • Understands you. I get to know you and your fiancĂ© starting from your engagement session on. So come your wedding day, I can read the room and know whether you need a breather, a moment or even just an ice-cold drink. 

That's what I'm here for.  

You need a caring, attentive & knowledgable photographer in your corner. In the words of Olivia Newton-John, you need someone hopelessly devoted to you...

You're Looking For The One photographer, that is.

...and that's me.

This is ALL possible. I'll show you how!

I'll be the friendly face walking around camera in hand bringing together your family & friends for a quick photo-op! You can count on my approachability and calming presence to make your guests feel comfortable.

Have a Photographer That Cares For You & Your Family

Feel awkward in the front of the camera? I facilitate meaningful moments between you and your fiancĂ© to create beautiful images you'll love. We'll also get plenty of practice in beforehand at your complementary engagement session!  

Not Worry About How To Pose

 I'll be there to keep our timeline running smoothly and troubleshoot as necessary. Your job is to be smoochin' and toastin', girl. Let me handle the rest.

Relax On Your Wedding Day

What if you could...

woah, that'd be nice.

After photographing 50+ couples across Maryland, PA & Northern Virginia, I know that at the end of your wedding day, memories are what you'll have left, mostly in photograph form.

Hiring the right photographer makes all the difference in how you remember your wedding day and even how your guests felt about their experience.

Here's the sitch...

Imagine if you didn't have to sweat the small stuff on your wedding day?

Karly is flexible - when I was running behind schedule, Karly took it in stride and managed to get us back on track! Karly is also incredibly kind and helpful.

At our wedding, she went above and beyond, making sure that everyone had what they needed, where they needed it and when they needed it. She went well beyond the typical scope of her job to ensure our wedding day was wonderful."

"If you as a bride could only work with one photographer for life, THIS IS THE ONE...
