I truly believe I have the best job in the world and am delighted you’re considering me as your photographer. Whether an elegant outdoor ceremony and reception at a historic estate or a weekend-long destination event abroad, I approach a wedding fully and enthusiastically. I’m passionate about capturing authentic moments and emotions, transforming them into tangible memories, and providing a medium for nostalgic feelings that my clients and their families can enjoy for generations to come.

My photographic style reflects my love of sunlight with a soft, romantic feel. My approach is fueled by being a lifelong people person and also someone that's always prepared. And my proudest personality trait is that I’m a calming presence, which comes in handy with all that a wedding day brings.

I’ve been taking photos since I was 7, and while I’ve come a long way since then, I do still love shooting film. 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. I'm based in Alabama, and my clients have celebrated all over the US and across the globe, including France, Ireland, and the Caribbean.

ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS

01

One of my favorite things to capture on your wedding day are the meaningful details: family momentos, lush florals that you selected, tablescapes that reflect your style as a couple. These are pieces that help to tell your story, and I create images with them that are polished and timeless.

DREAMING OF NEW PLACES

02

Exploring the beauty of the world fuels my inspiration and re-energizes my creativity and passion for photography. Some of my favorite places to visit in the US are NYC, 30A, Highlands, Charleston, and San Francisco.

In recent years I've had the pleasure of collaborating for destination clients in breathtaking locations including France, Ireland, and the Caribbean, to name a few.

HOPELESS ROMANTIC

I believe in soul mates and am incredibly honored to be entrusted with documenting your story and capturing your love in photographs. Time is fleeting and these photos are heirlooms that become more valuable with every passing year.
