Hi, I'm Rana.

Owner, photographer, travelpreneur, & creator behind this page. Photography has been in my roots for as long as I could remember. But my heart, love, and passion for weddings didn't start to blossom until the day I was asked by one of my oldest high school friend's to speak at her wedding in Cincinnati, OH back in May 2017. Since then, it was history.

With a Bachelors Degree in Fashion Design and a minor in Marketing, in addition to spending a semester worth of fashion photography, I decided to take the leap and make the career switch in June 2017 to pursue this dream into a reality. Countless sessions and weddings both shot and worked, in addition to earning my first wedding award, within a five-year timespan, it has been a wild ride. A swimmer, Euroventurer, active gym goer, and an explorer. Wherever you want to go, count me in for an adventure of a lifetime.

Few facts about myself:

  • Ellicott City, Savannah, & Maui are three places I carry with me everywhere I go
  • I'm all about authentic love and putting God & People First Always
  • Back in September 2022, I Euroventured through four countries (Ireland, England, Belgium, & Amsterdam) in 3 weeks with nothing but a backpack and a carry-on suitcase
  • Spotify Weekly is my jam always
  • Take me anywhere coastal, greenery, or Spanish moss and you automatically have my heart
  • I spend a semester in Maui, HI working on a lettuce farm back in January 2014
  • To this day, I've went to 21 countries and 36 states.

Jessica & Will

Rana did such a great job capturing our special day! She was so easy to work with and went above and beyond to get pictures with our dog in the engagement photos AND the ceremony. Save the dates and the invitations were also included in the package which was a huge bonus! Couldn't recommend her more!
