Hello lovely! I'm a fine art wedding photographer based in Maryland and Washington DC. I travel for destination weddings worldwide, wherever your love takes you. I have the unique privilege of getting to know couples and capturing joyful, romantic, intimate moments in their lives. It's such an honor to celebrate their love stories with beautiful imagery!

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from Savannah College of Art & Design, where I refined my skills as an artist and graduated with highest honors. My commitment to creating beautiful work of the highest quality can best be described as "no grit, no pearl."

I want to capture the joy and warmth of the love you share. My couples are best friends, and have found the sweetest way to enjoy life is together. Their connection is genuine and their laughter is contagious. They cannot wait for a celebration surrounded by family and friends who deeply care for them. With a heart for hospitality, they want to spoil their guests with a really fun, delightfully delicious, and oh-so lovely evening. They appreciate tradition, and prefer timeless over trendy. They want to treasure their legacy with beautiful photography; to have and to hold their love story, and each other.

My style pairs well with elegant settings, particularly those with historic charm or captivating nature. I'm drawn to details that tell a story - from intricate lace on a veil, to delicate blooms tied with velvet ribbon, to the way your hold hands, to how you light up when he whispers in her ear.

As I document what will become some of your most cherished memories, I also look to serve and lead in unique ways that allow you to enjoy the moment. My hope is to offer encouragement and support as you plan a beautiful wedding, but most significantly, prepare for a wonderful marriage.

The Wedding Experience begins at $4700. Please visit my website to see more work and contact me directly! Read less

Our friend who had referred us to Anna told us that she was very responsive, professional, friendly, passionate, but above all extremely talented and a delight to work with. Our friends comments only scratched the surfaces of Anna's attributes! From our first contact with Anna she exuded professionalism. She continually went above and beyond to ensure she had a good understanding of what we envisioned for our engagement session. Upon meeting, she was so welcoming and personal. With Anna's creative direction my fiancé and I felt so comfortable throughout our entire shoot, it made for such a fun and memorable date. After we got our pictures, we were so happy and impressed with the variety and quality! Between her personality and talent Anna was an all in one package; we will definitely recommend Anna to others!!

I spoke to several photographers before I booked Anna for our wedding; I was having a hard time finding the right photographer for us. When I spoke to Anna on the phone she explained the purpose of the engagement session is to allow the couple to get comfortable with her as our photographer and comfortable with the poses so everything on our wedding day feels natural and comfortable. Anna also explained that she likes to get plenty of information from the couple before their wedding so she can help keep everyone organized and make sure that our day runs smoothly. When she told me this I knew we had to hire her because I could instantly tell how organized she is! Even more impressive than her organization is her gorgeous photography style. When we received our pictures from Anna, It felt like Christmas morning! The pictures were beautiful, she captured so many special moments and returned our edited preview pictures in record time! Anna is so sweet to work with and she goes above and beyond the duties of a wedding photographer to make sure your wedding day is perfect!

Anna exceeded my expectations in every way. From the first consultation to our last email correspondance, she has been gracious, enthusiatic, and professional. My wedding and engagement photos are absolutely stunning and there are so many! This is truly a photographer that will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with your photographs. For instance, when most of the leaves had not changed in the location we choose for our autumn 'love shoot', Anna offered to do another complimentary session with us a few weeks later. She's also extremely organized (such a huge plus in the midst of wedding stress) and will send out a timeline, questionnaires, and a photographers guide that encompasses all the necessary photography information for your wedding day. I was very impressed by Anna and so delighted she could tweak her wedding packages to work within my budget. Of all my vendors, Anna was the best to work with, and I highly recommend her to any bride.

Words can not express how happy I am to have had Anna Kerns photograph our big day! From the beginning Anna showed an interest in our big day and listened carefully to what we wanted out of our photographs. She also helped us put together a timeline! She has always been extremely responsive, professional and so sweet! You can tell she truly loves what she does! When we saw our wedding pictures we were so excited. She captured our day perfectly! Thank you so much Anna for all of your hard work! We will cherish our beautiful photos forever!

Everyone has wedding day priorities and I knew that my number one priority was our photographer. I knew that our wedding day would go by so fast, so I wanted to make sure that we had a photographer who would capture not only the events of the day, but also the emotion. I could not have asked for a better photographer than Anna Kerns. From the start, she was always so incredibly helpful and flexible. Not only is she an expert in photography, but she is so knowledgeable about weddings in general. She outlined our wedding timeline and always had advice or answers to all of my countless questions. My husband and I spent a wonderful afternoon with Anna for our engagement photos and got to know her even better. I usually hate having my picture taken, but her genuine personality quickly put me at ease and we became fast friends! That same calm feeling transcended into our wedding day as having Anna there put my wedding day nerves at ease. She made sure that all of the photos on our “wish list” were taken and even more importantly she made sure that we were comfortable and having fun. Being a military wife I am often separated from my husband and I cherish our engagement shots because Anna did not simply take our photographs, she captured our love and every time I look at them I am instantly reminded of that. Thank you, Anna!

ABSOLUTELY LOVED WORKING WITH ANNA!!! :) photography was the second vendor we booked after our venue since it was really important to us that we have awesome photos. after looking at the portfolios of some other photographers based on where they've shot before, we decided we liked anna's work the best. we loved how her photos are very natural looking (love her use of natural light) and the quality isn't too harsh/sharp (not too much weird editing)... we also weren't trying to find someone to make us look super artsy (like from a bridal magazine) since that's not who we are. we all met at panera to see if we would click and we booked her right on the spot!! when you know, you know! ;) we knew anna was perfect for us! :)

she's one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet and is super professional. anna is very responsive to emails and was helpful with trying to figure out some engagement outfits for me to wear. she made us feel comfortable and made us laugh during our engagement session, which resulted in some amazing candid photos. :)

as we got closer to the wedding, anna was amazing with coming up with a timeline and a list of photos we wanted her to take. super organized and we loved it!! (helped us not be so stressed having to worry about making sure we had everything we wanted). ONE WEEK after the wedding, we sent us a sneak peek of the photos and i was shocked at how many photos she had sent to us!! i'm sure she and the second shooter (tamara) took thousands and i was only expecting a small handful of photos to look through since it's wedding season so i was floored when i saw how many we had to look through!! the photos look amazing!!! again, anna (and tamara too!) made us feel comfortable and made us laugh. we are SO very happy we went with anna and couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture our wedding day. :)

Our wedding was planned while I was overseas and my husband was just getting back from a deployment, but Anna was very helpful and flexible during our planning among our chaos! We didn't get a chance to meet until the wedding and she was so sweet and patient; I wish I could've spent more time with her, I feel like we'd be fast friends! Although we didn't have the greatest weather on the day of the wedding and photo backgrounds were limited indoors, she did a great job working with what we had available and stayed positive even though I'm sure she was just as frustrated as we were. It was so nice having Anna's calming presence (and amazing efficiency and organization) during the wedding day and I really cannot wait to see how the pictures turn out; I'm sure they will surpass my expectations :)

I can't say enough about how wonderful Anna is. Throughout the entire planning process leading up to the wedding, she answered all of my questions and was attentive to any ideas that I had for photographs. On the day of the wedding, she remained calm when it started to rain and found a great indoor space for my husband and I to take pictures. She even went out on a ledge (literally!) to get the right distance and angle for our pictures. I haven't seen any of the photos yet, but I'm certain that they'll be amazing!
