My focus is connecting, creating, and sharing with people: photography is a beautiful avenue for that.
I began documenting weddings many years ago in college & have simply never really stopped. It's often the happiest day of someone's life, what a treat to experience that alongside them. I'm addicted to the challenge of making portraits beautiful regardless of the venue, weather, or circumstances. And now, it's incredible to see clients repost those photos for their anniversaries, celebrating as many as 15 years together!
I've had the pleasure of shooting worldwide, from Oregon to Florida, France to Bahamian cruises, Chicago to Arizona, and so many dynamic places in between. Each couple has their own ideas of how to celebrate their love and I feel such it's such an honor when I'm chosen to document that for them. I don't aim to orchestrate their day but to photograph it in a way that captures all that they wish to remember it by. It gives me intense joy to think of generations from now flipping through wedding albums I create and these images becoming woven into their family's histories. What's not to love about two people so madly in love they're ready to promise their lives to partner up together.
Beyond my camera, I'm a wife and mother in Florida who's addicted to dance fitness classes and gardening. There are few things I enjoy more than dinner parties with friends, funny chickens in my backyard, and laughing children in the pool.
