Hi there! I'm so glad you're here.
I’m Andrea! I'm a wife, daughter, friend, coffee lover, dog mom, and photographer from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I specialize in lifestyle and wedding photography, with a journalistic approach to capturing my subjects honestly and with minimal posing. I was twelve years old when my parents gifted me my first digital camera and I'm almost 100% certain that I have taken a photo every day since. I have this inexplicable joy and excitement when I'm behind a camera (and, let’s be real, behind my handy iPhone, too!), 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. It's those raw moments that make up your life and who you are that captivate me - that's what I'm after.
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 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!

THINGS I'M CRAZY ABOUT:
My husband, Brent. We love to do life together and he is my favorite and most trusted assistant, so there's a good chance that you'll meet him during a portrait session. He's known for his posing skills, welcoming disposition, and amazing ability to make everyone giggle.
People, of course! Family, friends, and even strangers who stop me on the street to snuggle with my dog. My education is in Cultural Anthropology, so I love traveling to new places, learning new things, and meeting 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 - let’s make that happen!
