Photography is more than art or a career for me; it's my life. I photograph to understand the true beauty of what is in front of me and to share it with you and the world.
I have been photographing professionally for fourteen years and capture mainly weddings (with family shoots and fun events sprinkled in here and there)!
I was also the Global Peace Foundation's main photographer at hundreds of national and international events at venues including the United Nations Headquarters, The World Bank and Capitol Hill.
I have shot at over 45 wedding venues (with some favorite repeats) in the past two years since moving to San Diego! I am grateful for all of the amazing clients that have allowed this transition to the west coast to be so seamless.
I work with each couple to create a wedding day schedule that is unique to their wants and how they want to enjoy their day. On the big day, I always suggest that couples put away their phones and let them know I got it. I want them to be in the moment and just enjoy, letting me make sure everything runs smoothly and gets captured.
My style is modern artistic and documentary, capturing weddings with a natural look that portrays the romance, excitement and joy of the big day. My favorite photos to take are fun and dreamy. For couple photos, I do a mix of formal and semi-candids, with a lot of guided action shots (walking, lifting, hugging, and more) so it’s really creating authentic experiences with genuine expressions that you can look back on and remember how amazing it was in that moment (not how microposed it was).
Every chance I get, I go outdoor rock climbing, hiking and traveling. I love everything adventurous and fun, always trying to live life to the fullest. I bring that to my photography, striving to take photos full of life and showing the natural raw beauty in new and creative ways. I have an amazing life partner and best friend for 12 years, Ryman, and we take our tiny house truck all over the States exploring.

I am proud to announce I won Best of Weddings
on The Knot and WeddingWire two years in a row!
"Harmony was such a pleasure to work with. She is so easygoing and made us feel really comfortable during the entire process of our engagement/wedding photos. Harmony really goes above and beyond to make sure you get AMAZING photos. Her level of creativity is off the charts. On my wedding day my friends and wedding guests let me know they were impressed with her too! We’re so glad that we chose her to capture our special day."

“Harmony is WONDERFUL! Book her now! But seriously, having her photograph our wedding was the best decision we made. Not only is Harmony's photography amazing and artistic, but her personality makes everything more fun and she's up for anything! She even did our December engagement shoot in the freezing cold in Georgetown! We were all frozen but still having a blast. The hot chocolate afterwards really hit the spot. On our wedding day, Harmony was this peaceful presence that existed within the chaos! When everyone else was stressed or rushed, Harmony was close by and calm with a smile on her face. She put my mind at ease and really helped me just enjoy the moment, which she so beautifully captured in her photographs. I can't say enough about her and her photography. I'm so happy she came back to DC to shoot our wedding! It wouldn't have been the same without her :D”

"There isn't enough room on this page for me to praise Harmony! Harmony was a fantastic wedding photographer and we HIGHLY recommend her! From our initial point of contact throughout the day of (and after) the wedding, Harmony was super responsive, efficient, professional and genuinely kind and thoughtful. She is a true artist and incredibly skilled at what she does! We knew Harmony was the right photographer for us quickly after our initial meeting and didn’t interview anyone else. Most importantly, her work is AMAZING! Leading up to the wedding Harmony was in constant contact with us and it was clear that she spent a significant amount of time preparing for our wedding. Specifically, she scoped out our venue and surrounding location MULTIPLE times and at different hours of the day to make sure lighting would be ok. It was supposed to rain on the day of our wedding (thankfully it did only in the morning) and Harmony was super flexible in the days beforehand, coming up with creative “rain plans” and different options. She was open to our suggestions on places to shoot as well. On the actual day of the wedding she arrived super early and instantly put us at ease. We felt like we were having our photos taken by a friend! She came up with really unique shoots/pose ideas and was just overall so much fun to work with. As for the quality of her work, it is incredible. Harmony's attention to detail, light, location etc. is top notch and shows in her work. She is impeccable with editing and literally goes above and beyond to make sure all of your photos look great. And her turnaround time is superb at less than 3 weeks – I think that’s virtually unheard of. Hire her! You really can’t go wrong with Harmony. She is a natural and just an overall awesome person to have shoot your wedding photos. We truly feel so lucky to have been able to work with her! Thanks for everything Harmony! A &A"
