drinking multiple cups of coffee (black always), listening to some Ben Rector, and forcing my cat Tako into unwanted snuggles. If there’s a Thai restaurant nearby, you better believe I’m heading there immediately to order my favorite dish on the planet, Thai Green Curry (the spicier the betttaa!) I’m a huge adventurer, a girl who always has her bags packed, a wife to my husband, Andrew, and a mama-to-be to our first little one due in June! I’d rather be in the mountains than a shopping mall, and though I’m small (5’0” to be exact), my friends would describe my personality like a firecracker. I love serving the world by encouraging others to value their worth and chase after their God given calling.
I'm ALL about serving you with an INCREDIBLE experience. It’s how I’m able to make my couples comfortable with me to get those candid in between shots that make you FEEL your love. It's not just about pretty photos for me, and you're not just a number on my calendar. I’ll be honest, if you're just looking for any person with a camera, I’m not your girl, and that’s ok!
I'm NOT about posing you in multiple (and awful) "prom-like poses" that make you feel stiff and awkward or showing up as a random vendor who sticks a black box in your face and tells you to “fake” smile. HOW ABOUT NO. Here's how I roll: We're gonna start off as friends, deal? ;). I’m gonna get to know your story so I can photograph the way it actually FEELS. I'm gonna capture who you really are, your quirks, your laughs, and your tears. I want to see the way you light each other up or laugh so hard you snort. Because THOSE moments are the real, authentic, wonderful moments of your elopement or wedding day you'll want to remember years down the road. They are much more valuable to me (and if you feel the same you've come to the right place.)
For my couples, I do everything I can to make sure your photos are ones you are proud to show your grandchildren one day. You need vendor recommendations? Someone to hold your dress and bring you coffee on the day of? Someone to walk right by your side and assist with ANY questions you may have? I got you and I MEAN IT. When you book me, you're booking more than just a photographer, but a friend who gives a damn. I'm a photographer for the adventurers, the wild, and the whimsical, the brides who don't mind getting their dress a little dirty or sneaking out of their reception for sunset photos. Eloping in the mountains? I'm there in a heartbeat. Getting married in a National Park? Sign me up! I specialize in outdoor intimate weddings and adventurous elopements, but no matter where your adventure takes place, if you value the experience over perfectly posed photographs, we'll be a perfect fit.
my husband and I have a goal to visit every national park.
