"Working with Anna was easily the most positive and seamless vendor experience with our wedding!"

- H+W

A majority of the weddings I photograph take place in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland. I've had the pleasure of traveling to numerous scenic places in Europe including France, Italy, Germany, and the UK, and I've photographed weddings throughout the U.S. from Hawaii to NYC. I would love to capture your adventure wherever you choose to say, "I do."
I am very intentional and hands-on in my approach, and together we have fun every second along the way. I prefer to collaborate with your wedding planner and designer beforehand so that we can construct the timeline together to ensure there is beautiful lighting for photos and plenty of time to photograph every aspect of your wedding. This allows you have a smooth and enjoyable experience without stress.

My team and I balance directing with unobtrusively capturing those special moments that happen naturally through photojournalism. This ultimately results in your story, showcasing the people, fine details, and emotional components of your wedding day.
I do not offer videography services. However, I am delighted to recommend Harrison Films, Paperboys, and Lee Russell Films.
Weddings and Elopements are my most popular offerings. Elopement Collections start at $1,100, and full Wedding Photography Collections start at $4,500. Most wedding clients spend around $7,500 when including fine art heirloom products (such as prints and albums). All of my collections are tailored to fit your specific needs and desires.

Please visit my investment page for more information, and reach out to me via my contact form to inquire about my availability and custom packages.
Fill in my contact form, and let's see if your date is available. If it is, I will send you a contract to sign and an invoice for a 50% deposit. Once both of these are received your date will be reserved for you, and only you. I wouldn't dream of having anything else to do on a big day like yours!
To reserve your date I will send you an invoice which you may pay by credit card.
Absolutely! In fact, I highly recommend it. While we are dealing with COVID we can always schedule a phone call or meet on Skype. And when it's over, I am ready to meet in person over coffee, a glass of red wine, or a spicy margarita! Getting to know you as a couple and understanding your expectations makes it even easier for me to give you the artwork you desire. So let's schedule a time to start something wonderful.
My team and I only use top of the line digital equipment. Although I am classically trained in film photography and appreciate its history and beauty, digital processes allow me to deliver a wedding preview so that you can relive your "i do's" just a few days after your event. (This is not possible with film.) Each photo is professionally edited for color and exposure corrections using customized processes that I have expertly developed in my signature editing style so that the images in your story cohesively reflect the same joy and vibrance you experienced on your wedding day. I do not apply filters to your images, and all photos are edited with great care.
I deliver a preview with the highlights of your wedding within 3 to 5 days after your ceremony. The full collection takes 4-6 weeks to complete and may take up to 8 weeks during peak wedding season.
Yes, please! Just as long as I can take them home with me because I am crazy about puppies. If you have a fur baby, we should definitely incorporate him or her into your session. That way, your photos will be extra sweet and memorable.
I am unavailable on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and Thanksgiving. And I accept very few bookings through the month of December.
While weddings and editorials are my primary area of focus, I am also available for select corporate events. My schedule does not allow me to photograph children and family events at this time.

Please reach out via my contact form to inquire about availability and pricing.
