Her eclectic background uniquely informs her approach to photography today, having worked professionally in theatre, graphic design and illustration before parlaying her photography hobby into a career. She covered her first wedding in 2005 and realized that she'd found a venue for her creative and narrative proclivities that was positively symphonic.

"After spending too much time looking at wedding blogs, I became very aware of the different styles of wedding photography and finding a great photographer with a photojournalistic approach became a top priority. Nat and I were, however, very uneasy about being photographed. We were so happy your packages included an engagement session because it allowed us to overcome our worries and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera on the day of the reception. Though we were slightly nervous about not having the opportunity to meet you before booking, your calm, friendly, enthusiastic and open-minded attitude put us at ease from the moment we sat down together before the engagement session. Throughout the session, we appreciated your creativity and knack for finding great scenes...more "

"Thank you so much for your wonderful work at our reception! We appreciated your willingness to travel, and how quickly you fit in and became almost invisible as you captured all of the fun moments of the evening! None of the shots looked posed, and you were able to get all of the little details that made our reception...more "

"I am extremely grateful that I found you, and was lucky enough that you were available for our wedding. It was important to me that our wedding pictures reflect a more candid style and I went directly to the WPJA website hoping to find this type of photographer. This was honestly the toughest decision I had to make during the planning process. I considered other photographers, but I kept finding myself coming back to you. Your wedding portfolio was beautiful, but I loved all of your photos. You managed to capture the day exactly as I envisioned it. I still follow your blog, because I truly enjoy your work. Our friends and family still rave about our pictures and how timeless they are, and we could not be happier."

"The level of your creativity and professionalism were greatly appreciated during my wedding. The moments you captured were breathtaking and created special memories for Ashford and I. My family and friends were so impressed with the quality of your work and stated numerous times that the pictures should be in a magazine. Surprisingly several pictures were chosen for a feature in a magazine article for weddings in Ohio, overflowing me with emotions. You were able to bring life to some of the ideas I had envisioned and created many images I never could have imagined. The pictures can't say how easy going and great you are to work with. I highly recommend you for any event that requires a professional photographer and can't wait to work with you on future memories."

"Your pictures of our wedding were absolutely beautiful. I was familiar with your work, so I had no doubt that you would take fabulous pictures. What did surprise me was how unobtrusive you were in taking them. When I showed the pictures to family and friends, many of them commented...more "
