I started out with travel photography but my passion for portraiture and timeless romance led me to specialize in elopements, destination weddings, and intimate couples shoots for intentional and adventurous folks. I fell in love with the depth and intentionality of shooting on film, and I aim to emulate that timeless style in my digital work. There's something about the nostalgia of a bit of grain that takes a photo to a whole new level.

I was an English major in college and I have a master's degree in French. Lived in Paris and London for a bit, and that's where my love of photography began! I believe that part of how God made me is with is the ability to feel things deeply and connect with the emotions of others in my work as a result. When I decided to pursue photography as my career, I knew I was going down the path that I feel most connected to at my core, and doing the thing I feel happiest doing!

quick facts

a few more things i'm big on

1.

Quality over quantity.

I love to take a lot of pictures. But I also love to slow down and be intentional about them. In my book, having a those few incredible images with the wow factor that you come back to admire again and again will always be worth more than hundreds of photos that sit in a folder you never look at.

2.

Authenticity.

My style shows you at your best--when you're just being you! My favorite photos are ones that capture the candid, raw, true-to-life moments that you could blink and miss, but that make up a lifetime.

3.

Nostalgia.

I'm a sucker for the timeless look and feel of film photography; there's nothing quite like it! My style emulates this look so your photos will be gorgeous and timeless, never outdated.

4.

Low-maintenance, high emotion.

I put my whole heart into every part of my work, from getting to know you to editing your photos with care and precision. I want my work to reflect my heart for what I do as well as all the emotion and love I'm capturing in the lens. I also fully believe a photoshoot should be fun, laid-back, no stress!

Photography is silent storytelling, and I want to help my clients' stories come to life in a real, authentic way that is unique to them. I want them to feel beautiful and experience joy each time they look at their pictures. My faith informs a lot of what I do in life, and one of my favorite things about God is knowing how creative He is and how He made us to be creative, too. I love photography because it allows me to tap into that creative purpose. I used to feel weird that I felt so deeply, or saw beauty in so many random things. But now I see it as my strength, and I hope to use that strength to create images that really capture the essence of who my clients are. I also aim to stretch myself creatively and inspire my clients to do the same, because I believe some of the most valuable photos we can have are the ones we're not looking at the camera, because we're feeling and living that moment as it happens. I also want my clients to have a blast with the whole experience. Photos should be filled with real joy, and I will do everything I can to make sure your time with me is not stressful or exhausting, but fun and exciting. :)
