Beka + Dylan I can’t tell you how incredibly amazing it is to watch someone fall in love in front of your eyes. I think the only thing better than watching the story of someone you know and love form is being the one to document it! You get to experience their wedding day like […]

I’ve known Kasey for a few years, we met while working together at a local restaurant. She is one of the sweetest women I have ever met. Not only does Kasey have a huge heart, she can shake a mean cocktail too! When Kasey contacted me to ask questions about shooting her wedding I was […]

GET TO KNOW ME

I am just a simple girl that walks on the sunny side of the street who enjoys sweets, little details and a dash of sparkle. 

Fueled by equal parts caffeine and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. Your story, your love, is beautiful and I can’t wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come.

I believe in love, laughter, kindness...and a glass of wine with your best people!
