Experience

If you’re looking
for a photographer
that documents the
tiny details and
captures all the big
feels
— we’re going
to be a great fit!

Traditions are cool, but I’m a photographer that’s after something a little different.

However you’re wanting to celebrate your day or whatever you want to documented, make it your own! The stress of crazy crammed timelines, long list of things to check off, and hundreds of guests to manage isn’t worth it. Your wedding day isn’t a show to put on for others — it’s a day to celebrate your love for each other! It’s important that you plan your day how you + your babe want it to be, with the people who are most important to you, take the day slow to soak in every moment, and later be able to look back at how fun your day was.

Leave the rest to me to document all the real candid moments and the magic along the way.

Whether you want to take photos for your engagement, anniversary, honeymoon, babymoon, or just for fun — Before you even think about taking your photos at your neighborhood park because all your friends took their photos there, I want to provide something more for you. This moment in your life should documented more genuinely!

Let’s make it an experience by going to a location that’s meaningful and sentimental to you both, make it a weekend getaway at a cute Airbnb, cook up some pancakes and make coffee together, and let’s explore the outdoors to see the coast or hike the mountainside. Let’s make your shoot unique to your story!

Intentional

Magic happens
when there’s trust and
allowing yourselves
to be
fully present
with each other.

Every couple is different and has a different story to tell.

You. Exactly the way you are. Your personalities are unique, your love languages are specific to who you are, and how you connect with each other is special. Because each couple isn’t the same as the next, your wedding or photo shoot is going to be unique to YOU.

Maybe that’s taking the morning of your wedding to slow down and spend time with each other to set the mood for the rest of your wedding day. Maybe for your engagement session it’s going to your favorite fast food joint because that’s your usual date night every Tuesday (any Chick-fil-a lovers? Haha). Maybe that means creating a small timeline without any checklists for your wedding day so that you can spend intentional time with your favorite people. Whatever it is that’ll let you two feel more comfortable and have a laid-back time, let’s do it!

Let's be friends
not strangers!

Getting your photos taken doesn’t have to be uptight with forced poses and smiles.

I’m going to encourage you to be silly with each other, embrace your quirkiness as a couple, and let you crack all the sarcastic jokes. I don’t expect my couples to be full time models or know where to put their hands. To me this is more than just a job where I show up and take pretty “Instagram” photos, I want to be friends and really get to know you so that you’ll feel comfortable

being super goofy, relaxed, and laughing your butts off during our time together. You’ll end up forgetting that there’s a camera in-front of you and we’ll be cracking “that’s what she said” jokes! I’ll make sure we’ll have a real good time and help plan together something you two are most excited about!

I've got you covered, friend. I will help you every step of the way to make your day super relaxed.

After 6 years of photographing weddings and love stories, I know a lot of do’s and don’ts to creating photos worth cherishing. Let’s be real, planning can be the most stressful part of every photo shoot or wedding. I absolutely love helping my couples research locations, figure out permits, places that could be closed or busy during certain seasons, help you save money while traveling, and have a plan B if Mother Nature has something else in mind. Most of my couples ask: What the heck do we wear for our shoot? When’s the best time to take our newlywed photos for perfect lighting? Where should we have our elopement ceremony? Do you know any florists, hair + makeup artists, or videographers? Literally everything from A to Z I got you covered and will help you every step of the way because you deserve someone that will help you plan ways to make your day as fun and stress-free as possible.

Trust

You.
Exactly
the way
you are.

My process is about creating a laid-back experience and take photos that make you feel, move, and love years down the road.

What I offer is more than me showing up to your wedding to take photos from a shot list you found on Pinterest or just another photographer showing up to an unintentional location to take Instagram perfect photos that don’t make you feel anything — this sounds cheesy but that’s not who I am. I will take the time to genuinely get to know you, brainstorm an experience that’s meaningful to you both, help take care of all the nitty gritty planning details, offer my guidance and advice from years of experience, and make sure you and your babe have the most memorable time ever!
