About Me

Hello!

My name is Kim. I am a photographer and I live with my husband, our son, and our two rescue pups.

I have always been in search of a way to convey the splendor of the world around me. Ever since I could hold a pencil, I was drawing and painting. I spent my high school and college years in the darkroom, where I grew to love black and white film photography. Since then, I have explored many other avenues of photography, from weddings and bar and bat mitzvahs to family and food. My heart will always lead me back to the magic of weddings. Whether I am photographing a groom’s first look at his bride walking down the aisle or grandma getting down on the dance floor, I am honored to be along for the ride!

I enjoy capturing candid moments where my subjects show the truest versions of themselves. As an avid hiker and adventurer, I am inspired by nature and I love working with natural lighting in my work. In my free time, you can find me traveling with my family, trail running, or curled up with a good book.

I relish the opportunity to work with other creative, free-spirited, and adventurous couples and I would love to hear your love story!

The Details

Below is a collection of my most frequently asked questions. If you have a more specific question, please feel free to contact me.

ABOUT MY CRAFT

I strive for an authentic and unobtrusive documentary style. I find that people are the truest versions of themselves when they don’t feel the pressure of being posed or trying to smile for the camera. I also love natural light and I try to capture my style in-camera, so there is minimal editing to the final photographs.

I am located in Baltimore, Maryland and I regularly photograph in DC, Virginia, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. I also offer destination wedding packages for national and international travel.

I photographed my first wedding as an assistant to Aaron Haslinger Photography back in 2012. Since then, I have worked independently and in collaboration with local photographers shooting weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, galas, and more.

I absolutely love my Nikon d750 and my 50mm Nikon lens. I also carry a Nikon d7000, Nikon 18-135mm, Nikon 70-300mm, and Nikon SB800 speedlights.

I include engagement sessions in most of my wedding packages because I think it is a great opportunity for couples to get comfortable together on camera, and at the same time, it gives you a chance to get to know your photographer. I find that couples who do an engagement session are much more relaxed with me on their wedding day.

ABOUT THE LOGISTICS

For an eight hour package, I deliver 600+ images of your wedding day.

Your wedding photographs are priceless and as a professional, I make sure to preserve those memories in a number of places so they are not lost. My cameras have two slots, so I record every photograph twice. As soon as possible, I upload the photographs to my computer and back them up on an external drive as well as cloud storage. That means I have your photographs saved in five places before editing and sending them to you.

There is a four to six week turnaround time for all weddings.

Photographs are delivered via a private online gallery. I send these in organized by details, pre-ceremony, ceremony, portraits, and reception, so that it is easy to download and share these directly with family and friends.

I include a copyright to the photographs in all of my contracts, so you can print them wherever you’d like. For quality images, I typically recommend my clients order through Nations Photo Lab or MPIX.

If you are interested in hiring me for your wedding, please fill out the contact form below. I will get in touch to schedule an in-person meeting to talk about what you’d like to capture on your wedding day. If we are a good fit for one another, we will select a package based on your needs and I will send you a contract. I require a signed contract and a $750 deposit to reserve your date.
