I love people, and I’m so thankful that what I do is all about people.

I want to capture who you are, because who you are is beautiful.
I want to capture your story, because your story is important.
I feel so blessed to be able to do this through photography.

I first picked up a camera when my boyfriend (now husband) gave me his old Canon on our first Christmas together. I hadn’t planned on being a photographer, but it quite literally fell into my lap. I quickly fell in love with the art of photography, and 5 years later I get to call it my job.

I love all the new relationships this job brings into my life. I want to get to know you, laugh with you, and maybe even tear up during your vows because of the sheer beauty of love and life.

When I'm not working on my business, you might find me eating sourdough pizza while sipping on a gin & tonic in my most comfortable pair of pants.


Some things I love

The stories that are written in photographs are some of the most powerful and beautiful. My hope is to capture the small in-between moments that mean so much, as well as the big, once-in-a-lifetime moments that you’ll never forget.

I’m here to help you feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera, to have fun with you, and to provide beautiful photos that you will treasure for the rest of your life. When you're with me, you don't need to be afraid of feeling awkward in front of the camera. You can trust me to give you gentle direction, but I also want to let organic and intimate moments remain what they are. Authenticity is key for me. Every single love story between two people is so beautiful and sacred, and I want to respect and capture the unique essence of each one.
