kind words from awesome people

If you have any debate about booking Lisa for your wedding, do it now! We were married a few months ago and still gushing over all of our beautiful photos and video. My husband and I both heard of Lisa from Facebook and some friends and loved her work, the moment we met her it sealed the deal. She is such a fun, down to earth, tell it like it is person. She helped to make our engagement session relaxing and fun and got some amazing shots during golden hour lighting. She was even patient in trying to photograph our pup.
Leading up to the wedding, Lisa was a HUGE help in planning a timeline and making sure that we were organized. She answered any questions timely and helped to reassure us that everything would go smoothly for the big day. 
Our wedding day was unseasonably cold, windy and rainy. When I became a bit discouraged about the unfortunate weather, she gave me a "tough love" pep talk that snapped me right out of it. Her and her husband and assistant were troopers in the cold and rain to make sure that we the best photos. I couldn't have asked for more. We ended up with gorgeous outdoor photos despite the cold and rain.
After the wedding, we woke up the NEXT DAY to a preview of a few photos from the wedding, followed by the rest of our photos 2 weeks later. We also were fortunate enough to have Lisa create a video for us. The video so perfectly captured the feelings of our day. It was put together in a way that just felt like us. I cant thank Lisa enough for helping to such beautifully capture our wedding memories.

One or Two Photographers:You can either choose to have just me come and photograph the wedding or a second shooter. Having a second shooter basically means that they help with getting photos of the groom getting ready, shorten time of portrait hour by taking responsibility of photographing the groom/groomsmen while I am photographing the bride/bridesmaid, and the second photographer adds shots from a different angle during the ceremony. Other than that, they typically just provide additional coverage and you receive additional images with a second photographer that you wouldn't. However, I have shot over 100 weddings alone without a second photographer and I can capture just as many amazing moments as a solo shooter as well as with another. So if you are on a budget, then you can totally check out those lower priced packages with a single photographer. For all 2020 weddings I'll be bringing a lighting assistant with me who is not a photographer and is with me on all wedding days from the ceremony to the end of the reception to provide assistance with lighting, organizing portraits, and anything else I need to focus on capturing your wedding perfectly.
Coverage Hours:Every wedding is different. Sometimes couples want a first look, tons of getting ready photos, and have a sparkler send off while others just want the main events. I offer the hourly coverage options that I have because after doing over 200 weddings I've learned that those hours allow me to capture everything I know my couples need to remember their wedding. View SAMPLE TIMELINES HERE
Engagement Session: I love engagement sessions because its a better way for us to get to know each other! I offer a mini engagement session, a full 1 hour session as well as a 90 minute engagement session with my wedding collections. The mini session is 30 minutes and couples can choose 1 outfit for their session. The one hour session includes two outfit changes at one location. The 90 minute session includes two outfit changes with an optional additional outfit change or location change at 30 minutes (30 minutes for travel). All sessions must be held within 30 miles of 21030. If further a charge applies to all sessions further than that distance. Some collections include an Engagement Book which includes a select number of images and pages. These are perfect for your reception at the wedding to show off your photos and to cherish those memories in print form! I'm a huge advocate for printing out your photos and showcasing them at home not just online!
Personal Use Release and Online Gallery: All the edited images from your wedding are completely yours! These are all the high resolution images from your wedding that turned out. Typically photos that are duplicates, blurry, bad lighting, or just not flattering are omitted. Typically clients can expect to receive about 100 edited images per hour of coverage! You'll receive an Online Gallery that you can share with your friends and family as well! All those images in your galleries also allow for free individual and mass downloads so that your family and friends can download any images they see that they want to keep as well... at no charge! Just make sure they tag the photographer in any social media posts ;) This gallery is also online for 10 years which means that if you accidentally delete your wedding photos they are still online and you can download as many times as you want! ALL COLLECTIONS INCLUDE AN ONLINE GALLERY AND PERSONAL USE RELEASE OF YOUR IMAGES.
Photographer for Life Program: Even before all these other photographers started doing it, for real I was straight up copied by hella people.... lol....  I created a "photographer for life" program where I offer portraits and other services to my bridal clients at 50% off of the typical cost. I like doing this because I really enjoy working with all the couples that I work with and I want to be there for all your moments/milestones! Its such a great feeling seeing your first and keep seeing all your important memories and being able to capture them for you!
Wedding Album: I truly believe in having a tangible product from the wedding day and I believe in keeping and having your images printed. All albums include custom design, lay-flat pages, online proofing, and free shipping right to your door. 
One Hour Wedding Planning Meeting with Custom Timeline: For many of you its your first wedding and thats it, your only wedding, so how are you going to know how to create a timeline and tell all your people where to be and what to do to help you have the best day ever?! Well, thats where I can help! I will sit down with you, for a one hour planning session about 4 months before your wedding day. We will talk about times, locations, flow and organization of your wedding day. Many couples chose to hire a wedding coordinator for the day of the wedding but no planning services, well lucky for you I can help with those! It's included with my ALL my collections with the exception of Collection I. I'm here to help and I REALLY truly want your day to be amazing and the best way to do this is to help all my couples create an amazing custom timeline to hep them relax on their wedding day!

FREQUENTLY ASKED

WHEN DID YOU START PHOTOGRAPHY?

2013 ; I was a teacher assistant and pursuing my Master Degree in School Counseling at Loyola and my husband and I found out we were going to have twins. At the time, I had a friend who was a full time wedding photographer and she encouraged me to also start photograhing weddings, as I was already a family/engagement photographer. From then on, I invested in my equipment and my education and I've self taught myself everything from Lightroom to business lingo and the Comptroller of Maryland.

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?

I have five full wedding galleries so you can look through them, these are REAL weddings that haven't been 'filtered' for the best photos ever. I want you to look through and tell me what you think my style is. Sometimes I'm candid (that dumb term photojournalistic) and documentarian; but in other aspects I need to traditionally pose you, your family, and the bridal party to get the shots.

WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO YOU AND YOU CAN'T BE AT MY WEDDING?

Total, this has only happened one time and I have given my couple about 6 months notice because we unexpectedly found out we were expecting twins in February 2020. In that scenario, I gave my couple the option of a refund of their deposit or I could hire an associate photographer and additional second shooter to take on the wedding and I would still edit and maintain everything else throughout the wedding process. In the event that something happens to me sooner, your contract guarantees that I would substitute a competent, professional photographer, with similar artistic creation. This is something that is NOT expected to happen, but I have many resources and various other photographers I can reach out to if this were the case. 

DO YOU HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER? WHO IS IT?

So, if Brooke isn't available (my second shooter) then I would hire another competant professional photographer with similar artistic creation to mine. Meaning, the second photographer I bring to the wedding would be equal to me in artistic and photographic capabilities! That way if something were to happen on the wedding day, you have TWO photographers to capture it who are both amazing!! Sometimes I even second shoot for other photographers to help out! We have a large network of photographers in our Baltimore Community so it's a great resource!

DO YOU BRING BACKUP EQUIPMENT?

Yeppers! I bring two full frame Canon 5D Mark IVs with me to every wedding plus a backup full frame camera body. I usually bring anywhere between 5 and 6 lenses and I purposefully carry two cameras with me at all times throughout the wedding in case something happens to one, I can't run back to my bag to switch during an important moment of the day! Also, my cameras record to TWO memory cards simultaneously throughout the wedding day. So that if something were to happen to one of the memory cards (thank god it hasn't) I have a backup with all of your images on it! I've been doing this a while and have photographed around 200 weddings so I've worked out all of my backup solutions!! I'd rather lose a piece of equipment anyday over losing important irreplaceable memories!

HOW MANY WEDDINGS HAVE YOU SHOT?

As of October 2019 I've shot a total of 217 weddings! I take on about 30-40 weddings per year but typically end up shooting close to 50 per year.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Uhm, duh. Hahahaha. Every wedding photographer and wedding vendor should have insurance. I carry $2mil. liability coverage with State Farm and can show proof of insurance if requested by your venue.

IS THERE AN EXTRA CHARGE IF YOU NEED TO STAY AT MY WEDDING LONGER?

Depending on the time. If the sparkler exit or whatever goes over like 10/15 minutes I'm fine and won't charge an additional fee. Additional coverage hours are $400 per hour.

WHEN WILL I SEE MY IMAGES?

Contractually between 8-10 weeks. But if you've read my reviews on wedding wire you can see that typically it's between 2-3 weeks (or sooner). I do all my editing in house and I try to edit only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays so I can maintain some normal personal time with my family. I spend a lot of time on your images (about 40 hours per wedding) so I need that time to get those shots perfectly edited for you!
