international fine art
wedding & portrait photography

I've had a passion for gorgeous imagery and creating art since before I could remember. I've always loved the arts, starting with classical music and theater, and from there it progressed into the fine art medium of painting and photography.

I love how photography gives me the opportunity to personally get to know and create relationships with my clients. It allows me to pick up on the quiet moments of each time spent together, and how unique each person truly is. After 15 years of capturing couple's and family's during their most precious times in their lives with my husband, I can truly say that this is where I am meant to be. Read on for a little more about me and the studio.

things that have our hearts:

the love of my life

And your second shooter! Believe it or not, Tony is as hilarious as he is handsome. We grew up in the same small town in rural Maryland, but didn't start dating until I finished college. He's been my best friend through it all and we are so excited to be starting a family together! He would always call me his "rib bone" which is where "Costola" started.



Traveling the World

We might just love traveling as much as we love our pups! We specialize in capturing romantic destination weddings throughout the United States, Europe, Caribbean and beyond. Our favorite country is Italy! It might be all the delicious wine, it might be the stunning views, we can’t decide!


my favorite things:


We always said that if our #CostolaCottage burned to the ground, the first things we would grab are our pups and our wedding album. We can’t wait to one day watch our own babies flip through our love story!


my favorite things:

Date Nights in the City 

Some of our favorite restaurants in Washington include Fiola Mare, Del Mar, and Salt Line! There’s also nothing quite like a wine night in your PJs with the love of your life.


Da Vinci and Vincent

Yes. Leonardo Da Vinci and Vincent VanGogh. The two furry loves of our lives. We do not have any children (yet) so these are our fur babies and always will be!


home decor

Home decor. Trying new recipes with ingredients from our garden, Watching New Girl over and over again. And really good red wine every afternoon.

the heart behind the photos

Does this sound like you? Inquire with us.

Long before our own wedding, we heard stories from too many couples who regret their wedding photography.

That's heartbreaking! Our wedding day was so precious to us, and we know that each couple's wedding is just as special. We strive to make your wedding experience as effortless and enjoyable as possible from the moment we chat to the day you have your custom legacy album. This is about that real love. The kind that makes your heart beat a little harder, makes you want to hug a little tighter, stay out under the stars a little longer, and breathe the little moments in a little deeper.


Giving you the opportunity to support programs and ministries that promote excellence in education, spiritual growth and primary health care of Haitians in need with the heirlooms and artwork on your walls.

20% of all online gallery sales from your wedding or portrait session is donated directly to our partners in Haiti.
