SOULFUL WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY


BLOG

Fueled by equal parts coffee and Jesus, I spend my days capturing the kind of images that make you stop, smile, and ask time to slow down.

Lizzy and Ryan’s Wedding Day Part 2 came and went SO quickly! While we celebrated more of a formal ceremony earlier in April, their August wedding was filled with more celebratory things (like allll the dancing!)

Downtown Harrisonburg Engagement | Megan & Alex

It truly feels like I’ve known Megan and Alex for a while (and not like I met them just last evening). During their engagement session over the weekend, we walked around the JMU Quad for a bit, which has such a special place in Megan and Alex’s hearts! After meeting at JMU their freshman year […]

Annapolis Engagement Session | Karen & Evan

Meeting up with Karen and Evan during their downtown Annapolis engagement session yesterday was a DREAM. We walked around the downtown area for a bit and eventually made our way through parts of the Naval Academy (using Evan’s expertise). The entire morning spent together was lovely and I cannottttt get over how much I love these […]

Johnstown, PA Engagement | Cara & Bradon

engagements

I spent last evening meeting Cara and Bradon for their engagement session and it was the perfect evening to do so! As we dodged some clouds and potential rain in the forecast, I just knew these photos back in my hometown was going to be the glowy, summer-y photos that always come with these mountain […]

Lauren and Eddie’s Pittsburgh, PA wedding yesterday was a DREAM. When I’m in one of my favorite cities, with such a great couple, I knew this day was bound to be amazing and was so excited for it to get here! Back in October, I had the honor of meeting Lauren and Eddie for their […]

Wedding Traditions You Can Skip

education, for brides, weddings

Gone are the days of “But this is how it should be” or “This is what we always do” and can we just give an AMEN! While I extremely value tradition and the importance of a wedding ceremony’s staple pieces that make it just that – a wedding, there are so many “extras” that we […]

The Importance of Client Gifting

For Photographers: The Importance of Client Gifting

education, for photographers

    Client gifting is one of the most important aspects that CHANGED the way I do business. I know what you’re thinking, “Andrea, I already have so many overhead expenses per client and you’re saying I have to spend more?” Yes, friend, that’s exactly what I’m saying. Because investing in your connection with your […]

Shenandoah Maternity Session | Ariel & Evan

portraits

OHHHH my goodness – it is always such an honor when a previous couple invites me back for more portraits as their family begins growing! I had the honor of photographing Ariel and Evan almost three years ago (what?!!!) for their engagement session and wedding! Last evening, I got to take their maternity photos and am screaming […]

Rock Creek Park Engagement | Kevin & Kelsey

engagements

It’s not every day that I wake up at 4 AM to drive to D.C. and capture wonderful couples at sunrise, but after Kelsey and Kevin’s engagement session this morning I kind of WISH it was every day. Their kind souls and ease of laughter made it feel like I was photographing friends and not […]

Anniversary Session | Lindsey & Paul

portraits

Lindsey and Paul got married almost exactly one year ago at Four Winds at North Mountain (if you missed their wedding day, you can check that out here). I was honored when Lindsey reached out to get some anniversary photos done, and thankfully (after the second time rescheduling due to rain) we embraced the weather […]

WHY we're the perfect match:

WE WANT THE SAME THINGS

As a wedding photographer, my priority, is capturing your experience in an authentic light. But more than that, it's making sure you spend time with people - YOUR people - and that THOSE moments are captured. When it comes to your wedding day, I'm an efficient photographer WITHOUT compromising quality, and truly feel that is what most couples need during their wedding experience. I want you to be able to run (not walk) to cocktail hour, dance to the Wobble at your reception (if you're into that), and not have to rush around on your wedding day. For 95% of my couples, we get photos done EARLY and you're free to party with your people right afterwards.

When you hire me as your wedding photographer, you hire a fun sense of organization with timeline prep, efficiency, and an overall sense of servitude for you and your guests on your wedding day.

"Andrea is a joy to be around and creates a natural, relaxed atmosphere.

Andrea is a joy to be around and creates a natural, relaxed atmosphere. Andrea captures each moment so beautifully. She was always on top of communication, and I always felt like she cared about what we wanted. The quality of pictures is amazing and I am so glad we chose Andrea as our wedding photographer! You should definitely hire her now for your photography needs!"

TAYLLOR AND CODY

"Andrea brings out the natural beauty in whatever she photographs.

Andrea went above and beyond to accommodate us for a last minute change of plans due to COVID-19. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the pictures and how they turned out. We absolutely love them all. Andrea brings out the natural beauty in whatever she photographs. Thanks to Andrea we will be able to relive our wedding day over and over."

SARA AND JOHN

"Andrea is so professional and detail-oriented, while still being fun, friendly, and loving.

Andrea is so professional and detail-oriented, while still being fun, friendly, and loving. She feels like she is your best friend as soon as you meet her! Throughout our wedding planning process, she sent a sweet little surprise gift box, a helpful photography planning guide, and she even made us a personalized ornament for our first Christmas! She goes above and beyond in everything she does.

LIZ & ZACK

"Her excitement about being our photographer was contagious."

From the first meeting, we knew Andrea was an experienced photographer who was also warm and bubbly, which is the perfect type of person to have around you on your wedding day. She was extremely helpful with answering any questions we had, and was very responsive. Andrea is incredibly organized and efficient. She captured the best moments and got all the shots we wanted without making it feel like the photography was taking over the day. Working with her was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her!
