I feel like this is what I was born to do, I'm not sure where my story starts with photography, I do know I never want it to end. When I was young, my mom would think I was at the neighbors house playing outside, when really...I was sitting for hours going neighbors photo albums. The magic of making time stand still. After having my first child in 2019, the importance of time standing still is even more of a strong pull in my life to continue to grow & learn in this art I call work.
My philosophy when i'm behind my camera is to simply capture all that's happening in the moment, so that when you receive your gallery, you feel as though you’re opening up the beauty of your own love story. Like a dream, you'll be able to live it all over again as your eyes behold the those moments that went by so fast. That's why photography is so important, it truly is what allows us to remember memories forever.
My simple ask of you, is that you enjoy the day and allow me to be there with you, like an old friend capturing all those little moments.
Random things about me that i love;
Enneagram 4, Birkenstocks, being comfortable, close friends, lit candles, vulnerability, healing, joy
I believe the best photos are never posed — they’re the ones where you’re relaxed and having fun together.
That’s why from the moment we meet, my goal is to make you feel comfortable and simply enjoy the moments we have together-this will allow for the images you see throughout my portfolio.
behind the camera
My philosophy on capturing any person that comes my way is to simply capture all that's happening in the moment, so that when you receive your images back, you feel as though you’re opening up the beauty of your own story. Like a fairy tale, you'll be able to live it all over again as your eyes behold the those moments that went by so fast. That's why photography is so important, it truly is what allows us to remember memories forever.
Having me as a part of your village will allow for the calming feeling of a close friend capturing all those little moments.
the way all your friends and family show up for you, the way your grandma grabs your hand & kisses your cheek, the way your best friend cries as she watches your first dance
every single wedding is so unique, to the way the music plays, to the getting ready songs are chosen, to the way the cake us cut, its all beautiful
I'm not about
your wedding day being about anyone other than you, I totally get it- we love our people and want them to feel special but its your wedding day, make it yours.
you should feel seen, valued and celebrated on a day is so special, you should feel the magic of it all.
