Hey! I’m pumped you’re reading this cause that means you’re taking steps towards planning one of the best days in your life!  I have been shooting weddings full-time since 2013 and have had the honor of documenting over 280 couples! It's so crazy to look back on all the amazing weddings I have been a part of and to photograph their growing families over the years. I consider it a true honor to be welcomed into the lives of my clients-turned-friends.

I have shifted to intimate weddings & elopements :).

Why Elope? These very intimate ceremonies are incredibly emotional. It's a whole different vibe than the big "show". A stress-free way of celebrating your love with fewer complications and less structure around your day of love! There is more space to be genuine and celebrate with the love of your life. Focus on your love instead of if the guest book sign was crooked or left in a box. It's your love story girl.... you get to decide how YOU want it to be celebrated.

I would love to hear more about your love story, proposal, and wedding plans!  Your fiance` may get tired of hearing all about it, but I never will! I have an open line of communication with my couples throughout the process, willing to dish on all the tips I’ve learned from being in the industry for all these years. 

A little nervousness is COMPLETELY normal.  I still get nervous when I get my photos taken also! I will pose you with formal photos and use prompts to get those fun candid ones! It is about having fun and documenting real moments... those blooper shots are sometimes THEEE BEST! So go ahead and take a browse through the site and let me know if I am a good fit for you.
