SOULFUL WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY

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.

Dumbarton House Wedding | Karen and Evan

I basically have limited words to describe how joyous, magical, and FUN Karen and Evan’s Dumbarton House wedding was. I had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session in Annapolis a few months ago and, even during our consultation in March, knew I was going to adore working with these two. Their wedding did not […]

This past Sunday, one of my goals for 2019 came TRUE! Myself, along with Sierra McCray and her intern Allison, successfully planned and executed a styled shoot at the Blackburn Inn in Staunton, VA. It was such a fun planning process to be able to put together such a large project, but I couldn’t be […]

Faithbrooke Vineyard Wedding | Ariel & Evan

Ariel and Evan’s Luray, VA Wedding at Faithbrooke Vineyards was the PERFECT end to my 2018 wedding season! I had an amazing time celebrating with their friends and family all day.

Williamsburg, VA Engagement Session | Tim & Natalie

Tim and Natalie’s “engagement” session has been planned since the summer — and since we planned for a session so far in advance, plans changed for the better! 🙂 The day before I met with these two, they made their love for each other official and got married!! Needless to say, I was honored to […]

Camp Friendship Wedding | Jen & Matt

Jen and Matt’s Camp Friendship Wedding was a beautiful beginning to a busy Fall season! As the two celebrated with a lakeside/pond/beach wedding, they radiated love and happiness the entire day. From the moment I met them, their laughs and jokes made the day begin with ease. When talking to these two back in March, […]

WHY we're the perfect match

WE ARE SOULMATES

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

"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!
