Behind the camera I craft images that show the heart and soul of the fabulous people, places, and things I’m working with. When not photographing you’ll find me swing dancing, road tripping, or with a cat in my lap, tea in one hand and a book about dragons in the other.
Before picking up the camera, I spent a lot of my time moving around the world. From Wisconsin to the Netherlands, Italy to Maryland, England to Virginia and now finally rooted in Baltimore, the experiences of travel and living in new places helps me connect with people fast, understand differences in cultural expectations and norms, and observe the charming idiosyncrasies that are part of this human experience.
International living also embedded a firm love of travel and I’m always down to pack a bag and hit the road (or sea or air). I spend a lot of time finding quirky and unusual adventures, fascinating and offbeat people, and delightfully unexpected experiences. Photography is my way of sharing the wonderful world I see.
"She made us feel so comfortable, and she tailored all of our photos to best suit our personalities, and she was so well organized and prepared that we knew exactly what to expect when our big day came. I am normally a pretty shy person who doesn't like photos, and so she was perfect for us! I couldn't have been happier or more relaxed, and our photos couldn't have turned out more beautiful!"
Devon Rowland is the best goddamn photographer on the East Coast.
"The level of professionalism was outstanding. She captured every moment beautifully and these moments my family will treasure for the rest of our lives. Devon Rowland Photography is pure joy to work with and an artist in her craft."
Devon Rowland Photography was the best decision of my entire wedding.
Donna, Performer and DAnce instructor
"Devon managed to connect with the intent and energy of performance in still images in a way that I have rarely seen in pictures of dance. I ended up hiring her to shoot my recent performance recitals for my studies in dance. The results were powerful and breathtaking, giving the viewer a real sense of the emotional depth of the shows. Devon has a gifted eye and the skillset needed to capture the unique essence of a moment, not just the general aesthetic of an event."
Devon has a gifted eye
“For as many photographers as I’ve had to deal with, the shoot we did was the first I’ve ever felt truly comfortable and loved every single one of the pictures. I can’t say enough good things!”
Devon is an absolute joy to work with!
As a senior at College of the Atlantic I had spent most of my academic career exploring writing and psychology, and the main reason I signed up for Intro to Digital Photography was because of a cute teacher.
It was my camera that I fell in love with though, bringing it anywhere and everywhere with me. What started as photographing friends in the backyard, swing dances in my city, fire performers at regional burns and parties, and the world of DC sideshow & burlesque at Palace of Wonders slowly turned into a career.
Nowadays I photograph weddings, portraits, boudoir, events, and families across the country and around the world, but these roots in fast action and unique culture helped shape my eye and the way I photograph.
