About

I believe in the perfectly imperfect and discover beauty in the simple things. I thrive on the unique energy and emotions that make an appearance at every wedding and elopement that I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. I have a deep love for handwritten snail mail letters, wind-swept hair, and spontaneous travel adventures. I am so privileged to wake up every day to do what I love – and I truly wouldn’t have it any other way.

I am honored to have had my work featured on beautiful publications such as Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, Weddings Unveiled Magazine, The Knot, Washingtonian Bride & Groom Magazine, Ruffled, and many more.

If you think we’d work well together, I would love to get to know you over sips of coffee, tea, or smoothies!

    Serena is a goddess when it comes to photography. Her love of light gives her photography a natural, but almost fantastic feel. On our first meeting with Serena my now husband and I felt so comfortable with her, which is saying a lot as we're of the shy, nerdy persuasion. She didn't pressure us into the sale (which, believe me, is uncommon in this process), and her previous work spoke for itself. Her use of light was the primary reason for us contacting her, but her calm, professional and fun manner sealed the deal. The day of the wedding was crazy (the schedule broke down before the ceremony even started) but Serena worked with the bridal party to get shots taken whenever she could. Her attention to detail is a treasure as I was overwhelmed that day but I'll have her portraits to remind me of what actually happened. I recommend Serena 100%.

    Serena and her team were friendly, personable and willing to accommodate us (even with my very large family)! I was a little tentative about having someone come in from out of town to do our destination wedding, but I'm SO glad that we did. Serena covered our wedding like no one else could have. She is worth every penny, and more!

Can't say enough positive things about this lovely photographer! She has a way of catching the perfect moments - light, romance, and whimsy - that can be so random and easily missed. Wonderful eye for detail.
