How to take professional product images with your phone

Last year Sterling Forever asked me to shoot products for them, and I couldn’t say YES! fast enough. They gave me so much creative freedom with the shoot, and I’m obsessed with every single image. I learned these shoots take foreverrrrrrr just to set up each individual shot, but it was fun taking an idea, […]

I have been excited about Viktor & Andy’s wedding since I photographed their Disney World Proposal last year! Viktor is my sorority Big’s older brother, so I’ve actually been excited about this wedding long before their proposal! Viktor & Andy had a Winter wedding at Raleigh’s museum of life & science, but they got super […]

Viktor & Andy’s Winter Raleigh, NC Wedding

I met Rachel years ago when I visited Salisbury with my Big in my sorority, they cheered together so we quickly became friends! I was so thrilled when Rachel got engaged (I had a feeling it would happen soon!), and it was so fun strolling the quiet streets of Chestertown on Christmas Eve with Rachel […]

Her *fiance* Will wanted her to be 100% surprised, which I thought would be difficult because Amy always expects everything. We decided to disguise it as a photoshoot with her best friend/my past bride […]

Your engagement session is most likely the first time you and your boo have ever been photographed, so it can be a little intimidating. I also know that couples really want to thoroughly plan their engagement session because […]

Thankfully mother nature gave them the most perfect wedding day! Their wedding mixed in things that they both loved– gold for Jay, and shopping for Frances. […]

This is kinda crazy…..but Jenny was my manager at the very last part-time job I ever worked (YogiCastle). She’s the same age as me, and went to my sisters high school, so we were pretty close when we worked together. I knew she had been dating Jarred for awhile, and when I saw they got […]

I’m pretty sure Linda & Andrew are who I will be in the future. They live in Fed Hill, go to the same dive bar as me, and love the local musician who plays at that dive bar on Fridays. They love him so much that they had him as their musician for their wedding!! […]
