She moved to Baltimore in 2015 and is excited to introduce Charm City to The Bar Method. When she's not at the studio, you can find her spending time with her daughter, enjoying happy hour with her husband, or playing with her pups.

urban row photography

Originally from New York (but proud of the lack of an accent!), I moved to Baltimore in 2005 after falling in love with Charm City during my first drive through Fells Point. My passion for storytelling and working with couples on the biggest day of their lives was brought about through my first love of architecture and design. Where you met, had your first date, work, live, were proposed to… most enjoy spending time together, fave coffee shop, happy hour spot... they all add up to make your story different than anyone else’s.  That’s what I enjoy showcasing in my work! It’s hard to extract architecture from your life and love, and I can’t wait to show you why your photos will be best when we work together! You can catch her on instagram at @urbanrowphotography or here on her brand new website!
