wedding & lifestyle photographer

Hello! My name’s Amy, it’s nice to meet you.

I graduated from the Corcoran College of Art + Design with a BFA in Photography in 2012 and started Paperbird Photography in 2014. While my journey started in a darkroom, I’m now a digital gal with a weak spot for documenting love stories in the DMV area. As of 2022, after living in DC for many years, I now call Maryland my new home sweet home. Outside of Paperbird, you can find me in the middle of a cleaning/organizing project, browsing Target for things I most certainly *need*, listening to true crime podcasts, or tending to my houseplants.

One of my favorite parts about being the face behind Paperbird Photography is helping my couples have a wonderful wedding experience. The organization nerd side of me loves being involved in planning photography timelines, and the mom side of me makes sure that you’re looked after along the way.

I’m a full-time photographer, a wife, a mom, a dog mom, and a plant mom.

I'm so grateful for my little family. My husband, my daughter, and my two dogs have my whole heart.





We are a reflection of the people who surround us. I'm proud and honored to have these 4 darlings as part of my life.

I'd love to hear a bit about yourself and how you two met! And of course, let's set up a time to chat.
