Love & Adventure Photography

local & destination weddings + elopements

maryland | washington dc | virginia | & beyond

Because… why should your wedding photos look like everyone else’s?

I am the photographer who will climb a mountain top, freeze my ass off in Antarctica, stand in water with sharks, or help you dodge your mother in law during your wedding in order to get the perfect shot. I am the person that when you say you want to do a Harry Potter themed shoot… I help you create the ultimate Harry Potter themed shoot.

I capture epic portraits with movement and personality using the environment around us. I capture true and hidden moments throughout the day that will bring back memories and emotions every time you see them.

While I am based in the Maryland (DMV) area. I will travel the world for the perfect shot. I have photographed weddings in Antarctica, Greece, and all over the US and the islands. I offer my couples opportunities to meet me on my adventures for their own Adventure style shoot.

Seen enough already! Let’s get together !

We can grab a beer or coffee and just chat about your wedding day!

If your not local that is totally fine we can set up a time to talk on the phone, Skype, or FaceTime.

Maryland Wedding Packages start at $3850.

Destination Wedding Packages start at $5500.

Adventure Sessions start at $750.

I am based just outside of Annapolis, Maryland but I travel worldwide and encourage others to join me on my adventures !
