I began my photography journey in the Air Force where I focused on journalistic photography to complement the stories I wrote. After finishing college with a public relations degree, working in the corporate world and for nonprofit jobs, my love for storytelling through photography continued to grow.
In 2016 I decided it was finally time to take the leap into wedding photography. It is my passion and joy to go on adventures with my clients and to tell their stories. I am so grateful that my past has lead me to where I am today.
My style of photography leans heavily toward how a journalistic photographer would capture stories. I don't pose as much as traditional photographers, however, I do help gently direct as I know it's unlikely you've had many instances of being in front of a professional photographer. I don't like contrived moments, but I LOVE to be artsy sometimes! However, my number one goal is to make you comfortable in order to allow your true personality to shine through. Also, I love to dance with you at your reception, so be ready!
When I’m not doing my photo thang, I’m making faces/doing impressions, drinking mucho amounts of coffee, reading, listening to folksy goodness, going on road trips with my hubs and pup, and watching favorite shows like The Office, Parks and Rec and Doctor Who.
I think of my clients in the wise words of Leslie Knope: Each of "you are a beautiful tropical fish. Smart as a whip and cool under pressure."
