I truly am so happy you found your way to me! Whether you're just shopping around or you think we'd make a great match, I hope you leave this site feeling like you're fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139!!!)! I guess you need to know a little bit about me, so here's a little snippet:
I started photography when I was 16 years old, the summer coming out of my sophomore year of high school. I thought I was going to be a famous YouTuber at the time. Photography wasn't even on the table. It wasn't until one of my friends got on homecoming court and I took her pictures when I realized, "hey, this is kind of fun! And I think I might be good at this!?"
Fast forward 6 years (WOAH!) and here I am running a full time photography business! I've made mistakes, grown, and been stretched in ways I never would have guessed. I learn more and more everyday. If it wasn't for people investing in little 17 year old me, I would never be where I am today. The Lord truly gave me a sweet gift that I can use to give back to His people and to His church! Capturing core memories (hehe!) is the sweetest honor of my life! I am so thankful to do what I do, and that my job is the funnest (it's a word, promise).
Weddings. Ugh. They are the sweetest picture of Christ and His Church! It is a day you will remember for the rest of your lives; and if you don't remember any of it, that's why I'm there! ;) The greatest JOY of my life is capturing all moments, big and small, to give to you! From zipping up the dress, to Grandma wiping her tears, to a first look (or two, or three), to a ceremony, to your groom holding your train, to dinner surrounded by friends and family, to the best dance party you've ever had, to being swept away by the love of your life (cue Getaway Car by Taylor Swift!!!). It's the moments that become memories that I get to freeze in time just. for. YOU! (Seriously, I'm emo just writing this). Anyways, I hope you get the picture (literally lol) that I'm just a 20 something girl who loves her job and wants you to feel celebrated, loved, seen, heard, and SPECIAL! You trusting me with your day is such an honor, and I don't take it lightly. I hope you stick around and we become besties! You're welcome to sit on my couch and watch a movie with me any day (bring snacks!!).

I believe that your pictures should be true colored and should last a lifetime. They should capture how a moment looked and felt, and be sealed through time. I stay away from the editing trends and stick to true lights and darks. Editing styles should not get in the way of authentic images.
I want to capture your day the way it happened. Whether it was the hottest day of the year, the rainiest day after a long drought, the first snow of the season, or the brightest fall; your images should reflect your day perfectly and be a perfect time capsule.
I keep my skin tones natural, my lights white, and my darks black. This way your images will never go out of style or make you look like you had a spray tan gone bad.
