in every conversation, in every shot, in crafting the images that will BRING your story To life again and again
With a background in theatre and a degree in communication, I expertly weave your story into your wedding imagery, directing and curating moments so that your day flows naturally. Meaning you look and feel center stage the whole day, while relaxing and enjoying the people you chose for this special celebration of your love!
I am both extroverted and introverted, which has helped me immensely as I work with people, so I can fit into your wedding scene with ease—whether it’s laughing with Uncle Jim during family formals (and getting him to cooperate!) or squeezing your mom’s hand right before the sendoff. My goal is to seamlessly navigate your wedding day as both your photographer and your biggest supporter.
On a personal note, I'm married to an Army officer. I love tacos, reading, Broadway, deep conversation, and cooking. I don’t have any children, but I do have house plants—they are my babies. I color-coordinate my closet, and my t-shirt drawer would make Marie Kondo proud.
I’m a little bit of a sci-fi nerd and a lot a bit of a marketing nerd. But the most important thing that you need to know about me is that I love people, and my dream is to see you make an impact—whether its your love story impacting your children and grandchildren, or your business impacting the world. So thanks for taking the time to get to know me—I hope I get the chance to know you too!
I love watching humans connect to one another. That's probably why I love wedding photography so much. I think that Shakespeare was onto something when he made a study of humanity in his plays. The human connection is endlessly fascinating and inspiring.
I just adore flowers. Something about them brings me a special kind of joy. Whether they are professionally arranged or picked by a three-year-old in a field. They bring life to a space in a way nothing else can.
Creating spaces that are truly inspired is one of my favorite things to do. My husband and I are currently in the middle of a home remodel, and while we aren't Chip and Jo, we love that we are creating a home that we love. When I need fresh ideas, I enjoy looking to Studio McGee for inspiration!
I love paper planners. I've loved them for years, and each time I get a new one, it feels likc Christmas. I love the fresh pages and the feeling of setting everything in order. But it's even better when the planner is particularly beautiful. Like Jane Johnson's Dear Monday planner.
I once swore that I would never drink coffee, and I am so glad that I didn't stick to that. I will admit that I can almost never finish a cup of coffee without needing to reheat it, but I love it all the same. Hot or cold, it is one of my favorite parts of my morning routine.
Simply put, my plants are my babies. I care for them meticulously. I dust them. I inspect their soil. I talk to them. When I leave, I worry about them. I celebrate even the smallest amount of growth, and that has taught me to celebrate my own.
I absolutely love tacos. To be honest, I could eat them every single day. But Taco Tuesdays are extra special. I'm not quite sure why, but they are. And someday, Ricky and I are going to publish a cookbook so we can share all of our favorite Taco Tuesday recipes with you.
One summer, I walked to the river and watched the sunset almost every day. And almost every day, I took a picture of the sunset. Because almost every day, it felt more beautiful and more moving than the last. In a summer sunset, inspiration knows no bounds.
When I was 10 years old, I fell in love with reading for the first time, and I've never gotten over it. I love curling up with a good book and letting it transport me to another time and place. You can read favorite passage from my favorite book below!
I don't talk about this part of my life very often, but theater has played a huge part in my life. I am more of a director than an actor, for sure. And I absolutely love getting to work with people in this way. It has shaped my communication skills and my confidence in the best ways.
My life's goal is to start with intentionality in all things. And I approach my work with that in mind, creating images that do more than just remind us—they connect us to moments in time and to one another.
I'm ready to help you align with your values and plan a wedding day experience that's undeniably yours. I can't wait to encourage and empower you to make the choices that matter the most to you. Because you and your values deserve to shine bright.
