    The best photographer!

    Barbarah did both our engagement photos and wedding photos. She is friendly, easy to work with, professional and fun! Our photos turned out beautiful and she got them back to us super quickly! Barbarah is open to doing fun and silly photos along with the serious ones. She happily embraced our two dogs and horse being in our engagement photos and worked well with our personalities. Definitely consider using Barbarah for your wedding or any other event, you won't be disappointed!

    Love Love Love!

    Barbarah is the best! She makes you feel so comfortable in front of the lens! On the wedding day, she ensures to get all the shots you want and even the ones you didn't know you wanted! Her style of editing is stunning and unique! Not only is she so talented, she is super sweet, down to earth, professional, and fun to be around! Highly recommend!

    Would give 10 stars if I could!

    Barbarah is AMAZING! I got engaged one month after Barbarah shot at my sister’s wedding in June 2018, and knew immediately that I wanted to hire her for my own as well. She makes every photoshoot so fun and so comfortable, even if you don’t anticipate feeling very comfortable in front of the camera, you will. Barbarah has the best tricks to loosen you up and just have fun with the experience, which in turn makes you look much more natural in photos. She truly cares about her customers – making sure that you are as organized as possible for your wedding day, but also extremely go with the flow and can tell when you’re done with the formalities and just want to party 😊. I would recommend Barbarah one million times over!

    Outstanding

    My wife and I hired Barbarah as our wedding photographer after seeing the quality of her work at a friend's wedding. She did NOT disappoint! Barbarah is a truly gifted photographer, and captures all the best moments better than we could hope for. She was such a pleasure to be around for the entire day, and was extremely calming and personable. A true professional, and fiercely dedicated to her craft. We will recommend her 10 out of 10 times to anyone looking for a photo-shoot or event photographer!

    Can't wait to hire again!!

    I don't know where to begin. I know we're not supposed to have favorites but Barbarah makes it tough. She made it such a breeze to work with. Her level of professionalism while being intimate during our wedding day was unmatched. She thought of details that never even crossed our minds. I can't rave about her enough. She also had photos to us in less than 24 hours, we were able to have some photos to remind us of our big day. And she delivered all of our photos within 3 weeks! Absolutely amazing, I can't say enough great things about her and her assistant photographer!

    Joy on film

    Barbarah is an absolute joy to work with. I was immediately drawn to the look of her photos - she's a true artist and catches the smallest, most wonderful candid moments. She was so kind and supportive through the whole process. I still find myself looking through all the photos on a regular basis. They're absolutely wonderful and everything I was hoping for. My favorite thing about Barbarah's style is how you can feel the emotions in every shot, and it's been so nice reliving the love and joy from that day.

    Incredible Photographer and Person! Highly Recommend!!!

    We couldn't have chosen a better photographer for our wedding. Barbarah is not only extremely talented in her field, but a lovely person, highly professional, and truly goes above and beyond to make the day as smooth as possible. Our pictures are stunning and I couldn't have asked for more! I HIGHLY recommend Barbarah!

    We knew from the second we saw Barbarah's work, we needed her to photograph our wedding! She has an incredible eye for special moments and beautiful settings. She knew exactly what we wanted captured in our special day and just went for it. We have only seen the previews but my husband and I were BLOWN AWAY! Our friends and family could not stop commenting on the photos she was able to get. It's so important to feel comfortable with the person photographing your special day. She was so kind, responsive, helpful, and easy to work. She quickly became a part of our family!

    The turn around time was incredible! She sent us some previews the NEXT morning... and we can't stop looking at them!

    We can't say enough great things about Barbarah! We look forward to having her capture more of our special moments in the future!

    Barbarah was amazing and we felt that she made our special day even better! The photo color scheme was really well done and she would be perfect for anyone looking for a photographer with a great eye for detail; because let's face it, on your wedding day you do not want to be the person also managing a photographer, which is what made Barbarah a blessing to work with!!! She knew exactly what to do!

    Barbarah photographed my husband's and my casual outdoor wedding in Howard County, MD this past August. She was recommended by our wedding planner, and, compared to other photographers we researched, she had the most flexible packages by price and level of service -- our event was going to be relatively short and simple (3-4 hours with no wedding party) and we were relieved to find a photographer with a beautiful portfolio who wasn't going to charge us for hours worth of photography that we weren't going to use. She was very organized and professional in our initial phone consultation, prompt and pleasant during the event, and our photos are gorgeous! We especially loved getting a sneak peek of ~15 or so of our edited photos just HOURS after the event. Thanks, Barbarah!

    It’s hard to put into words how amazing Barbarah is, but I’ll try. This woman is a badass! She is one of the most talented, hardworking people I’ve met. Her photo style is gorgeous, her technique artistic yet approachable, and her hustle is unparalleled. Oh, and did I mention that she still shot our wedding FIVE days after giving birth to her precious babe? She is a true professional. You will not regret hiring Barbarah, she’s worth every penny and more (and still affordable!).

    Barbarah was seriously such a blessing to have on our big day! With the military and then an accident that my now husband Eric was in we had to change our wedding date multiple times. Deciding to have a small family wedding in the military chapel was the perfect plan for us. Barbarah is a sweetheart and took so many wonderful pictures and everything ran smoothly! She's a joy to work with and with her passion for photography and love of God she was the perfect fit for us! We can't thank her enough for all she did for us!!

    Barbarah is an extraordinarily talented photographer and a truly kind person. She was able to create an atmosphere where the photoshoot felt like a fun date in itself for me and my partner. She came back quickly with the photos that were of amazing quality. The communication was clear and professional all along. I have never recommended anyone more wholeheartedly in my life than her!

    We came up from Florida to do an engagement shoot with Barbarah in D.C. and the photos and shots look incredible! We did really dressed up photos at the different memorials and then went into Georgetown to take more urban shots and they look Amazing! The best part of it all was how fast she got us the pictures! I only took 2 weeks to receive all of our photos and again they are PRICELESS!

    Barbarah was incredible! We are in love with our engagement photos. She was the best to work with. She made sure to capture every moment and take the time to get exactly what we wanted. Our engagement session was a sunrise session in D.C. and then we headed over to Georgetown for some more casual photos. The photos turned out flawless. She made it so easy and made us feel so comfortable taking photos. She also got them back to us SUPER FAST! If I had to do it all over again, I'd choose her a 1,000 times!
