Today, my equipment includes much more than that little pink camera and yet the girl behind the lens is remains just as passionate.
Born and raised in Germany, I spent my childhood traveling through Europe. Now at home in Southern Maryland, I enjoy life with my husband Nate and our four children. When I’m not behind the camera you will often find me in the garden. Fresh blooms are my favorite both at home and at weddings!
I consider myself so lucky to have turned my creative passion into a career. It truly doesn’t get any better than being surrounded by so much beauty, while serving couples who often become friends.
Hi, I'm SVENJA
y love for photography began when I was nine years old and my dad bought me my first camera at the Disney gift shop. It was pink and could take roughly thirty images on film. I was instantly hooked!
Growing up we traveled extensively and my grandmother would always accompany us. So many of the fancy hotels we stayed in all around the world hosted weddings and I would beg my grandmother to let me see the brides in their gorgeous gowns. Because my grandmother was truly the best she would always take me to sneak a peek - often in my nightgown! I remember a couple of times we even hopped on the dance floor.
While I now only attend weddings I am invited to, some things never change and I still always gush over my bride’s gowns!

y grandmother was the most incredible woman. While she was not able to watch me become a photographer, I attribute a huge part of who I am to her.

Those newlywed nuzzles always make my heart skip a beat - these are the moments that matter the most on wedding days and where my work truly shines!
Pro tip: Depending on your wedding timeline we will sneak back out just before sunset so you can get those gorgeous golden hour images!
