I’m a lover of pink tulips, spending time with dear friends, and traveling to new destinations. I’m a hopeless romantic, a dreamer, and I firmly believe laughter is the best medicine, no matter what. When I’m not behind the lens, you can typically find me somewhere in the sunshine, preferably at the lake or near the ocean.

I have THE best job in the entire world! Can I say that?! Whether an elegant outdoor ceremony or a full destination gala overseas, I approach a wedding day the same. I’m so passionate about capturing authentic moments and emotions, transforming them into tangible memories, and providing nostalgic feelings that my clients and their families can enjoy for generations to come.


My photographic style reflects my love of sunlight and a soft, romantic feel - full of beautiful light and pastel hues. I achieve the ethereal romance in the photographs I take by using a combination of both digital and medium format film photography. My clients become my friends, so when you need a warm, reassuring presence on your wedding day, you can count on me to be there for you.

My aim is to produce timeless images that display the beauty of your love for one another, and I genuinely feel honored with each life event I have the privilege of capturing.

UNAPOLOGETIC DOG LADY

01

If you spend any time with me, you’ll probably hear about my furriest love of my life: my sweet pup named Phil! He is a spunky mini Goldendoodle who came into my life in 2018. He loves to play, meet new friends, and also enjoys a good nap. This little guy fills my life with so much joy!

DREAMING OF NEW PLACES

02

Paris is my dreamland and I’m always planning and organizing my next trip to anywhere beautiful. I never say no to exploring new places, so don't hesitate to reach out if your event will be held at some far off destination!

HOPELESS ROMANTIC

I believe in soul mates and am incredibly lucky to have the honor of learning people's stories and capturing their love in photographs. One of my favorite parts of getting to know a couple is hearing how God brought them together. I'm fiercely optimistic, believe that life is full of endless opportunities and am passionate about pursuing my dreams.
