When Anna booked me for hers and Sam’s destination wedding in the Canadian Rockies, she told me that they were renting an amazing car and that she was planning the best send off. The most common exits/send off’s are sparklers, rice, flower petals, bubbles, and glow sticks. I was left in the dark a little until the time came and to be honest, it was well worth the wait! After the wedding Sam changed into a more casual outfit and Anna changed into a form fitting white dress and a Wifey jacket made by Debbie Amosa that she won on Instagram! You can find Debbie’s work on Instagram!
I did not know what car they got until I saw it in person! They rented a White BMW Z4!! OH MY GOSH! They picked it up in Calgary, drove it to Lake Louise for all of the wedding festivities, then to Vancouver for their honeymoon, and then all the way back to Calgary to return it! If you didn’t know, the drive from Lake Louise to Vancouver is a 9 hour drive alone… To make the trip even longer, the drive from Lake Louise to Calgary is 2.5 hours. BUT when you have a car like that, it is well worth it!
As we were leaving Lake Louise to head back to Calgary to catch our flights, Missy and I wanted to stop and grab a photo in front of the Lake Louise sign. When we were walking to the little strip mall to grab one more croissant, I saw a car that looked very familiar…. We got to see Sam and Anna one more time before they were on their way to Vancouver for a fun filled week long honeymoon! What a perfect, unexpected way to end a once in a lifetime trip! <3

COVID-19 has definitely changed a lot this year in so many ways from how we style and celebrate milestones to how we socialize with friends and family. This past week Chandler asked me for some ideas of how to capture her birthday which just so happened to be the last day of her lock in […]
A little backstory before product photography came into my life… I started really getting into photographing other people when we were in Florida in 2015. We then moved to Maryland in December of 2015 and that is when my business grew. I had regular clients, weddings, second shot a lot of weddings, and finally began […]
I remember how terribly inconsistent I was with poses during an engagement session back when I started photography and my oh my.. Do you remember Anna? Back in July of 2016 I was invited to a styled shoot by a friend 30 minutes before it started. I ended up getting stuck in traffic on […]
One thing I have learned from this quarantine (as a family photographer) is that there is always more work that can be done to work on your craft. Even if that does not include shooting. I am going back through older sessions and came across this session with my best friend Natalie of Natalie Grace […]
If you are stationed in Germany, you have most likely been to Burg Lichtenberg at least a handful of times. This is one of my favorite castles to go to for family sessions. The kids love to run around and play and the adults can really take in the scenery around Burg Lichtenberg. Going to this […]
What is the first thing an engagement photographer thinks of when a client says they want to do their photos in Washington DC? Sunrise. Daily I go back and forth between whether or not I like sunrise or sunset better. I have to say though after Julie + Jordan’s engagement session, I prefer the lighting […]
