They say taking the first step is the hardest - but we don't think so! If you are interested in working with us for your wedding or engagement session, please inquire through our Contact page (see below). We want ALL of the details - what you're excited about and what is keeping you up at night. We have nine years of experience in this industry, and we want to help!
Once you inquire with us, we will coordinate a time to meet for a brief video chat. Since we tailor each of our couple's pricing guides to their unique needs, we need to hear about all of your plans! This helps us build a custom collection that includes everything you need without any additional fluff you don't want.
Based on what we talked about during our video chat, we will draw up a custom proposal that provides three options. Here, you can choose what collection best fits your wedding and budget. There are always room to add on extras (like rehearsal dinner coverage or a separate bridal session) later, too!
Time to get all dolled up and take some great portraits! Before your session, I will help with choosing the perfect location, date and time to match the vision of what you all want. We can do ANYTHING - I highly recommend picking an activity or location that is significant to you all as a couple. We also offer styling services, since I know picking the perfect outfit can be tricky. I'll bring the champagne, you two just bring yourselves and your best smile!
As we get closer to your wedding day, we will setup a meeting to go over your timeline and get all the logistics ironed out. This helps us best prepare for all of the moving parts of your day! We also talk about your priorities for photography for the day, making sure we have enough time built in to capture everything you all want. After this, we are all set for the big day!
By this time, we are fast friends and ready to tackle any surprises the day brings us! Each wedding is different, but we typically show up when both partners are getting ready. We start with details, then move into a first look (if you're having one), the ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception! We work closely with your planner and other vendors to ensure we are able to accurately capture the emotion and excitement of the day.
About 4-6 weeks after your wedding, we will send over the full gallery of edited, digital images. You can share, download and order prints right from your gallery! We also send over a print release so you can order prints from anywhere you'd like.

Once you all are back from your honeymoon and in the swing of normal life again, we will start on your custom album design. We will talk specifics about choosing photos, cover options and embossing. From there, I will design a cohesive album that showcases your favorite images. We go through an approval process to ensure you all love it, then we get it ordered!
Once you all approve the final layout, I will order the book from our supplier. It typically takes about 4 weeks for the album to come in. If you all live close to Northern VA, then I get to deliver your album in person - yay! If not, I will make sure to pack it all up nicely and ship it directly to your house.
We had the pleasure of working with Hannah and Anthony for our engagement shoot in Charlottesville, VA. Not only did she know the best spots for photos around the area but she timed it out perfectly so the sun was setting when we arrived to Raven's Roost, which made for stunning photographs! She also helped us include our new puppy in the session, which made for some adorable photos.
Hannah is an absolutely phenomenal person to work with! She and her second shooter (her partner, Anthony), were so fun while being a calming presence on our wedding day!
Hannah does amazing work and is an incredible value as a wedding vendor. You cannot go wrong picking Hannah to work with you on your wedding!
We loved having our engagement photos taken by Hannah and Anthony!! Hannah was very easy to work with and accommodated all of my requests! The photos she took were absolutely amazing and I could not be happier with them!!
Hannah did an amazing job with my wedding photos! She is easy to contact and got back to us in record time, every time. She was professional, but still made the entire process fun! She coordinated the first look pictures beautifully. She gave great direction to everyone in each picture so they knew exactly what she was looking for and gave time for us to be ourselves as well. She got us through the family portraits in great time (which was important to me), but I didn't feel rushed and they look amazing! The bride and groom session was so much fun as well. I didn't anticipate enjoying that portion of the wedding as much as I did, and it is truly thanks to Hannah. She was even willing to do another session with us later in the wedding on the beach which was exactly what I wanted.
Hannah and her second-shooter, Anthony, shot my wedding photos and did an amazing job! They perfectly captured the feel and energy we were going for and I could not have asked for a better experience.
They were so friendly and easy to work with and made us both feel comfortable even though we're not natural photo-takers. I would definitely recommend!
I can't recommend working with Hannah enough. We booked her for our wedding and engagement shoots, and were so impressed with the quality and the look of the photos.
Our photos are gorgeous and we will treasure them forever!
My fiance had Hannah photograph his proposal, which was a total surprise for me. Hannah was awesome, and caught the moment perfectly! We then took engagement pictures, and
She gave us the pictures very quickly, and there were so many. We 100% recommend Hannah.
I hired Hannah as my wedding photographer in 2016, almost 2 years in advanced, for my Sept 2018 wedding and when my husband and I finally got to meet Hannah for our engagement photo session in Sept 2017, we knew instantly that we wouldn't have wanted anyone else for this job. She matched our personality's perfectly and we knew that she was going to make our BIG day even more enjoyable.
I knew she had it handled. We could not be happier with Hannah, her fantastic second shooter and the third shooter she brought to help with her for the day since she was injured. We received TONS of pictures and there is not one that we did not like. If I could have Hannah to photograph every big event for the rest of my life, I would without a doubt!
Because we believe that there are no cookie cutter weddings, all of our pricing will be custom-tailored to your event.
