Originally from the Midwest, I lived in Birmingham for eight years and now reside in the city of Houston, Texas! I have a wonderful husband named Caleb and a mini Aussiedoodle named Pippin (yes, that is a Lord of the Rings reference).
I’m a self-taught photographer who is introverted (so I know how to work with the camera shy) and very tall (no risk of unattractive angles with my 5’11” vantage point).
friend first, photographer second
I love weddings because of the ongoing relationships I create with my clients. I’m there for you on your big day whether that’s carrying your train, helping the groom with his boutonniere or having a tissue ready during your first look (I may even shed some tears with you!). Serving my couples and capturing the best day of their lives is my greatest reward and fullest joy. I want you both to feel comfortable being your in-love selves with me and my camera following you around all day, and what better way than to be your friend first?
big moments + little moments
Weddings are full of big moments! First looks, first kisses, first dances… Bring it on! But I’m ready for the little moments too. Maybe the flower girl is trying to do her own makeup in the bathroom mirror. Or your maid of honor reaches out to give you a quick hand squeeze before walking down the aisle. Or your grandparents are quietly slow dancing in the corner of the reception. I’m there for that too, and even though you may miss or forget those memories in the moment, I’ll be saving them for you forever!
warm fuzzies & bold color
When it comes to my photography style, I love to bring a lot of warmth and color to my images. If your groom is wearing a purple suit with a floral tie or you’re considering rocking blue hair for your wedding, I think we’d get along really well! I love to pull pops of color into photos when I can whether that’s through a huge mural down the street or adding some fun stamps to your invitation suite.
