Hi there! I'm so glad you're here.
I’m Andrea! I'm a wife, daughter, friend, coffee lover, dog mom, and - you guessed it - photographer from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I have this uncontainable joy and excitement when I'm behind a camera, but the primary reason that I love photography is because it's innately personal. I love people. People matter, more than the style of an outfit or the details of a venue (though those things are important, too!). It's the memories that make you smile so big your face hurts, the silly inside jokes that make you giggle together, and the moments you’ve felt proud of your person that really captivate me. WHO YOU ARE, revealed in an image -
that's what I'm after.
My approach is pretty simple - you, your life, and your story are #1. My priority is creating an experience where clients feel comfortable to be themselves and I’m there to capture as much of that as I can in an image. My hope, always, is that you’ll look at your photos and think… “That’s us.”
I believe that a photo is an heirloom, a precious moment and fleeting memory captured and shared for generations to come. I love being able to play a small role in helping to preserve some of your life and your story.
I believe that my role on your wedding day is, above all else, to serve you, and that means that my priority is allowing the day to unfold naturally and being 100% present to capture whatever that looks like. I am there for YOU, for your people, for all of the thought and love and energy you’ve poured into the day.
I believe that each individual has been fearfully and wonderfully made by a loving Creator, so I do my very best to capture every portrait, detail, and moment in a way that reflects who you are. And while you'll read below that I LOVE to travel to new places, I also believe that who you're with is far more important than where you are, so wherever we venture to together - I know it will be amazing!
If you want to listen to me share a bit more about my story and the heart behind this business, head over to The Hingework Podcast.
THINGS I'M CRAZY ABOUT:
My husband, Brent. We are so thankful to tackle every day together and he is my favorite and most trusted assistant, so there's a good chance that you might meet him during a portrait session or on a wedding day. He's known for his welcoming disposition, dog-whispering (and wrangling!) skills, and ability to make people laugh.
People, of course! Family, friends, and even strangers who stop me on the street to snuggle with my dog. My education background is in Cultural Anthropology, so I love traveling to new places, learning new things, and meeting new people. This is one of the reasons that I love doing what I do - it allows me to build relationships in such a unique way and it works out pretty well for me that so often clients end up becoming friends. I’d love to make that happen with you, too!
My furry best friend, Toby.
Iced caramel macchiato (extra shot!), no matter what season we’re in.
New York City!!!
Cooking, especially soup!
Podcasts! I listen to them a lot while I’m editing or traveling!
The Office. I learned most of what I know about business from Michael Scott.
(JK. But in the end, he’s actually a pretty great boss and we share a priority… people!)
Walking around the charming city that I call home. There’s a lot of history, unique architecture, and FOOD here.
The color red (but when it comes to wardrobe… black!)
...and really, I love a LOT of things, so I’ll stop here before this list gets too long!
