Carly has such an uplifting personality and it truly shows in her work. Every pose, every shot every moment is taken into such deep consideration in order to capture it perfectly. She continuously boosts those that she photographs and you can't help but to have a huge smile on your face from her kind words and carefree laughter. I am so impressed with the photos from that magical day, and cannot wait to work with Carly again in the future!

The way in which I photograph each wedding is meticulously crafted for the individual couple. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, I immerse myself in your story, blending seamlessly into your wedding day tapestry. I'm not just a photographer; I'm a silent observer, capturing the in-between moments that tell your love story. My mission is simple: to provide you with photographs that transport you back to the emotions, joy, and magic of your wedding day. When you look at your images, I want you to be brought back to the way it felt.

I am based out of Winchester, Virginia. I  serve all of Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C. and beyond.
Some of my bucket list wedding destinations are: France, Iceland, & Italy.
Stateside: California, Maine, South Carolina, Florida, and Utah.

Where are you based out of and do you travel?

For an 8 hour wedding day, I typically deliver an average of 800-1200 edited images. ​Because every wedding day is different, the final photo count will differ as well. 
 Within a week, you will receive a preview gallery of around 50-100 images. The final wedding gallery is delivered within 6 weeks. I take a lot of pride in a quick turn around so that you can enjoy your photos!

How many photos can we expect to receive and how soon will we receive them?

I offer an 6 hour minimum because this is the perfect amount of time to capture your entire wedding day and ensures you do not feel rushed + allows for a stress free wedding day timeline. I do offer custom wedding packages for off season weddings and for small weddings/elopements with less than 10 guests. Please contact me for more information.

Can we book less than 6 hours?

I specialize in guiding my couples through poses that feel natural and are super flattering. I include a mix of posed and candid images in the final wedding gallery. You can expect to receive film-inspired, light-filled, joyful, and romantic images. I am happy to send over a recent full wedding gallery for you to look through. This allows you to see examples of my posing and editing style, and see images taken in different lighting situations.

What is your photography style?

Yes! I encourage you to have prints made and will walk you through the process. You are able to order high quality prints directly from your online photo gallery or from a print lab of your choice. I also offer beautiful heirloom wedding albums.

Do you offer prints and albums?
