Photography Wasn't Always The Plan

AND THEN I SHOT MY FIRST WEDDING.

I wanted a job that would allow me to travel. That would let me be creative, work face to face with people. Problem solve. Create. 

Photography was always a crazy dream I had. I always pictured the “other me” doing it. 

You know, the dream version of you. Super skinny, travels a ton, has clear skin and is never sad. That version. 

The summer after college graduation, I decided to take a chance. I worked for hours on a website, I listened to podcasts...


Since then, photography has been my true love!
  
I've met so many amazing couples, and heard so many beautiful love stories. It's honestly so amazing to photograph a wedding after speaking and working with a couple for months and months.

Your wedding is more than just a fancy party.

It's a display of love between two people who decided that they are a family now. They are not a family by chance, or birth, but by choice. And I think that’s worth capturing!


My mission is to provide not just beautiful images, but an amazing experience.

To not just have technically perfect pictures, but to capture the emotion and story behind every couple.

I believe that:

Romantic moments are a must, candids are awesome, dogs should be in engagement photos whenever possible

I'm not about:

Boring poses, no communication, a world without margaritas.

You can find me:

At the beach or in my bed watching Netflix and getting cat cuddles.

Meet my pets!

Ok yes my pets are named after hunger games characters. (Technically Roo was named after a kangaroo, but the cats name changed that)

They are both the sweetest girls and both rescues. And while sometimes I gotta make them pose for photos, generally they are so cuddly and cute. All this to say, I'm a very pet friendly photographer! Bring all the animals!
