let's make some magic
There’s so much beauty and meaning in unscripted, intimate moments versus traditional posed photos, and I truly believe there’s a magic in photographing and celebrating moments in that way.

ADVENTUROUS & NATURAL

FREDERICK, MARYLAND

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS

I don’t want to just show up at your wedding with a camera, take some photos, and leave. I want this to be a relationship, a friendship, and a collaboration – and I want you to feel free to let out your wild side and have some fun while we’re creating together.

To me, this is about way more than just pretty photos. I love getting to know my couples intimately, to start to learn your love languages, and those little moments you share together that if one day were gone, you’d miss more than anything. I want you to be able to look back on your photos years from now and remember exactly how it felt – and I want those memories to be full of love and life – and all the real shit.

So if you’re looking for a photographer who will just do the job and get all of the typical smiling, looking-at-the-camera, “perfect” staged shots, we may not be the best fit.
WHAT TO EXPECT
let's do things a little differently.
...will guide you along the way, cheer you on, and have fun with you
IF YOU WANT A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO...
...will give you photos that speak your truth and bring you back to how it felt
I THINK WE COULD MAKE
SOMETHING MAGICAL TOGETHER.
...really gets youand who will not only tolerate your weirdness, your wildness, and your quirks - but celebrate them with you
UNPOSED. CANDID. REAL. WILD.
...will capture real, meaningful, loving moments as they unfold
rather than awkward staged smiles and "perfect" shots

with me,
You’ll stomp through creeks, run through fields, climb up mountains, spin, kiss, frolic,
and dance in the moonlight with your best friends.
AND I'LL FOLLOW YOU
THE WHOLE WAY
TO CAPTURE IT ALL.
hey there, I'm louise.
I'm passionate about adventure, deep connections, candid storytelling, and good times.

When I'm not out photographing, you might catch me road tripping, admiring really tall trees, playing board games, or adventuring with my husband, Will.

Permission
communication & guidance
story & spontaneity

I believe permission is actually one of the most important things I can offer you. Permission to do things your way - to let loose, to make your wedding day exactly as you want it to be, and to “be yourself”, as totally cheesy as that sounds.


It means feeling unashamed to let emotions flow instead of holding back tears, or giggling like children because you're bursting with joy. It means being your goofy, wild, quiet, loud, or dorky self, and not feeling like you have to change or "perform for the camera". It means embracing what makes you different, and saying yes to what makes you happy and no to what doesn't. It means a wedding full of wonderful diversity - LGBTQ, multicultural, plus-size, we love you all! - or one that tears down traditions.


I don’t want you to end up with a photo gallery - or a wedding - that doesn't reflect who you are and what you want. So I’m giving you permission.
I’ll be there to help guide you throughout this whole process. I offer unlimited planning sessions for all of my couples, and encourage you to invite me into your planning process, ask me questions, and seek my advice any step of the way.

I'll help you with your timeline, location, logistics, do's and don'ts, permits, engagement session outfits, packing list & preparations, and anything else you need from me to make sure your wedding day, elopement, or session is stress-free and fun.
I’ll tell your story as it unfolds, rather than follow the same formula over and over for every wedding. I’ll take a few photos to set the scene, and capture all those little details you’ve spent so much time planning and creating – but what I love the most are all those little in-between moments and gestures of love and joy.

Emotional moments with you and the people you love most - and those split seconds that you wish could last forever. I want you to be able to look back years from now and remember exactly what those felt like.
THE THINGS WE HOLD DEAR
what we care about most
Photos that capture exactly how it felt.
and we can't forget...
adventure & fun
When we’re photographing together – whether we're hiking up to an epic overlook, perusing a record store in your town, or creating portraits on your wedding day – adventure and fun are central to how I do what I do.

We’ll probably get a little dirty, and we’ll definitely be laughing, playing, running around, and having a great time. I don’t want your experience to be a series of awkward poses and fake smiles, while you’re wishing it would end already so you can get back to your party.

I'd much rather our time together become an opportunity for you two to step away from the chaos and craziness of everything else, celebrate your love, let loose, and have some damn fun.
those epic photos.
Wait, what? Why do I need this in a wedding photographer?
Photos that show off your love and your wonderful spirits in a meaningful and beautiful way.
Photos that you can love and cherish for years to come, and make you feel all the feels.

what our couples have to say

"From the moment we booked Louise for our wedding photography we knew we were in good hands. She knows the perfect balance between giving direction in pictures and just letting you be you. She has such a friendly, kind, and compassionate personality that fits so perfect in capturing these exciting moments in your life. I have received non-stop compliments from family and friends about the quality of her work, her professionalism, and her friendliness. Louise is hands down the best decision we made in our wedding planning and we will spend the rest of our lives looking at her amazing work and how perfectly she captured "us" throughout the time of our engagement and our wedding."

“Louise was an ABSOLUTE pleasure to work with – she made my bride-to-be and I feel so comfortable and relaxed during our engagement session that we could truly be our silly selves. More importantly, she did a fantastic job at capturing and conveying our relationship in her photographs.”

“To say we’re obsessed is an understatement. Her style is artistic and authentic, she is amazing!”

“Louise did an AMAZING job with our engagement session. She was very kind and excited about what she does. The photos were very relaxed, natural, and fun. We were able to be ourselves and she captured every bit of it.”
