I’m not your typical photographer. I don’t want to simply shoot your wedding, or make pretty posed images of a few hours in your sweet life. You deserve more than that. I want to document every little bit of your story and make photographs that you’ll cherish for the whole of your life. These images will out live you, and they will become treasured pieces of your legacy. Because they matter. Because your story matters.
But who am I? That’s simple. I’m just a girl, and I tend to see best with my eyes closed and my face to the sun. I believe in kindness. I believe in laughter. I believe in beauty and passion and living a life less ordinary. I believe that life isn’t very pretty at times, but that it’s always remarkably beautiful. I believe wholeheartedly in love. I believe in telling stories and making images that matter. I believe that being a photographer – documenting people and love and weddings and life – isn’t about perfection or planning or poses. It is everything unplanned and spontaneous. It’s a cacophony of minutia; Bits and pieces of life strung together to create a whole.
I am a photographer, a writer, a dreamer, and a newly licensed motorcycle rider. I like to knit and sew and take vintage polaroids of my daughters. I am obsessed with nature, dreamy light, true love, and honest laughter. The path to my heart is paved with kindness, strangers made into good friends, Essie nail polish and gold glitter. I’m a fan of music and literature, and I get really excited about a good pinot noir. I love fashion, and am slightly obsessed with Anthropologie, Zara, H+M, and Target clearance racks. I pride myself on my ability to sing slightly off key, and if tattoos were free I’d be covered in them.
