I’m Aimee. I'm a wedding + portrait photographer documenting moments and telling stories in Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, and wherever else love takes me.
I believe in color. I believe in letting moments unfold and catching genuine emotions.
I want you to have the best experience imaginable. As a wedding photographer, that means I'll put everything I've learned in my years of photographing weddings to use to help you, guide you, and make things a little bit smoother. Looking out for the unexpected, sharing my knowledge, and making everything just a little bit easier. So that you wring every last drop of awesome out of your photography. Just taking beautiful photos is only half the job.
The people I photograph embrace their quirks as part of what makes them truly beautiful. They aren't afraid to be a little goofy, sassy, or human. I'm lucky to use my photos to tell their stories.
I'm known for my warm, sunny, genuine photos of weddings and people, and for helping my clients relax and have fun in front of the camera. My couples say I'm a calming, cheerful presence on their wedding day. I'm with you and on your team every step of the way. I'll get to know you, and what makes you tick, before you're ever in front of my lens, and we'll keep building that rapport all the way through the end of your wedding night. There's no secret sauce... comfortable, happy people look good in photos.
My photos have been featured in such wonderful places as Catalyst Wedding Co, A Bicycle Built for Two, Capitol Romance, Richmond Wedding Collective, C Magazine, and Charm City Wed.
Take a look around. Peek into my work and my life. See what other people have said about me. Read my FAQs. Or throw caution to the wind and say hello already. I can’t wait to meet you!

"Photos look just like a Pintrest Page"
Aimee and her assistant were AWESOME at our 120 person, outdoor daytime August wedding. We didn't have a coordinator and Aimee was so organized and practical ... she really kept things on track and worked with our caterer and venue to make sure we'd thought of everything. She was great with the family and guests, and captured lovely moments of us, family, and all sorts of wedding details, adorable pics of the nieces and nephews. My oldest niece said her pictures looked just like a Pintrest page - which is true! We have a very diverse family and Aimee captured everyone looking their best. So grateful for the experience working with her!Sent on 11/05/2018

The BEST Decision We Made!
We had a great experience working with Aimee and her team! Photography can be kind of stressful at times (with engagement outfits, wedding day locations, scheduling, and so many other details) but her team made the process so enjoyable. We felt comfortable around her team the whole time and they did such an amazing job capturing the big day! I also recently received our wedding album, which far exceeded my expectations. The quality of the pages and binding is amazing and it was so fun getting to pick out all the details and photos to make this a gorgeous reminder of such an unforgettable day.Sent on 07/23/2019

Aimee was simply fantastic. She and her second photographer, Chris, helped calm our nerves and made what could have been a very stressful day into an organized and smooth experience! We are very photo-shy people, and somehow, Aimee and Chris nevertheless captured our happiness, and also captured all of our family and friends so that we have forever memorialized being surrounded by everyone on our wedding day!Sent on 09/05/2018
