Before I am a photographer, I am a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend. Maybe that's why I cry during every father daughter dance. I laugh at every toast. I well up when an Officiant pronounces a couple husband and wife. I buzz with joy chasing children around the playground. I feel awe when a newborn's tiny hand clutches my pinky finger. I draw from the emotions I have experienced through my own life's most precious moments to know when and how to capture those of others, and I usually can't help feeling overwhelmed myself! The emotional rush I feel when I'm behind the camera is what makes me love what I do. The joy I bring others through photography is what makes me do what I love.

Fun Wedding in Charlestown, Maryland!

On Saturday, I had the privilege of second shooting with Kimberly Reed, a fabulous wedding photographer out of Pittsburgh. We had a blast shooting Clare and Jack's wedding in Charlestown! Thank you so much, Kim, for inviting me to come along and shoot with you!

Enjoy some of my images from the day!

First, some getting ready shots... I love this image of Clare peeking into the room while the bridesmaids were getting dressed.

This is Clare's dad, just before he walked her down the aisle.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day!

The happy couple, after the ceremony.

Clare's sister and Jack's son were both in the bridal party. Here they are goofing off during the formals.

A few reception pictures... I love the look on Clare's face in this one!

And the look on Jack's face right after the cake smooshing!

And here's one of Kim, hard at work! I love how she has a smile on her face while she is shooting!
