Hi, y’all.

Final-2.jpg

I am a west coaster turned southern girl that, above all, believes in love, and I think that everyone you hire on your wedding day should care about you. l want to show up to your wedding with coffee in hand and a smile on my face, chat with your family and your friends, and guide you so that you’re comfortable (and look oh so natural) for photos. At my core, I am a caretaker, and I want to go above and beyond to ensure you get the best quality of photos. I also make honesty and trust at the top of my priority list. My experiences as an editorial photographer has helped me fine tune my passion for creativity, and I will do what it takes so that you and your crew look your best. Flyaways? Im on it. Crooked ties? I’ve got your back. I’m not afraid of jumping in and making sure everything is in its right place.

Oh, you want to know more? Ok, I can keep going…

I have been a student of art for my entire life. The process of creating beautiful, detailed pieces has always been something that has driven and motivated me.  As a child, I can recall staying up all night, working tirelessly to illustrate a scene from my imagination, write poetry, or learn to watercolor. I was always moved by creative process but remember shying away from photography, always assuming it was too mechanical for me.

 

That all changed when curiosity got the best of me and I purchased my first camera in an attempt to capture candid moments of my rapidly growing sons. I was instantly in love with the idea of capturing moments from my life, and my photographic education began. It was only a matter of time before I was taking images for others. I have found over time that my style of photography is a reflection of the things that I hold dearest in my own life: candid moments, quirkiness, and substance.

So, take a look around, drop me a line or find me on social media. Let's grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, and talk about what makes you, you. I can't wait to show the world your story.
