The story of a photographer

I truly love my job.

From e-mailing and planning, shooting engagement photos, going over wedding plans, and capturing my couples wedding day from start to finish. It's work I love that ends up feeling more like making amazing friends and I'm so unbelieveably grateful for it .

My photography journey started close to 15 years ago when I got my first camera! I took tons of photos, and really loved it, but didn't really get into learning the technicalities! I started learning more about what makes a good photo when I had my son, and I started taking photos of anything and everything that I saw beauty in! I started my business in 2013 shooting for friends and family and it grew from there.

Then in 2015, I shot my very first wedding! And YIKES! I was a ball of nerves friends! But when I started shooting it was LOVE, a match made in heaven! I loved getting to capture those moments between the couple, their friends and family, and see the vows they made to each other! I KNEW I had to shoot more weddings so that's exactly what I did!

Y'all. It's been a journey. But I am so incredibly grateful to be serving my wedding couples the best I can- by creating timeless, clean photos that capture the real you!

And maybe bustling a few dresses, wearing a few unnecessary veils, and doing anything I can for my couples to look back with only good memories of their beautiful day!

Meet my better half!

assistant/ second shooter

Shawn has been by my side for MANY a wedding day now! He is indispensable and ALWAYS the go-to guy- from helping carry equipment to shooting alongside me to running water bottles to the bridal party to hanging the brides dress ( he's the tallest. lol). He just overall is the best and makes my life and everyone else's better!
