Leslie and Dan | Engaged | Maryland Wedding Photographer

Aug 9, 2017

Last fall on a brisk November day, Leslie, Dan, and I met at St. Mary’s College of Maryland to shoot their engagement session. I have to say, St. Mary’s College and Historic St. Mary’s City have so many picturesque areas that I would happily drive another half a day to shoot more sessions there! We were able to take photos on a dock at a secluded beach AND frolic through fields all in the same session. Great day, if you ask me!

Aug 1, 2017

When my husband Chris and I first started planning our wedding, there were a lot of not-so-traditional ideas we wanted to incorporate into our wedding, from what everyone was wearing to the James Bond nod we kept for the reception. There were a lot of details about my wedding that I wanted to keep very untraditional and totally different than what I’ve seen before, so I threw the rulebook out of the window and ignored some wedding traditions to make my wedding more me.

Going into business for myself was scary. I mean, really scary. Each decision feels like a make it or break it moment and, in my mind, one misstep could cause ten more potential problems. Of course, risks are just part of doing what you love, and without them there wouldn’t be that “YES!” moment when you feel all of your hard work paying off. So, I thought I’d share with you some of those decisions that turned out to be turning points for my business, and helped me enjoy being my own boss!
