All relationships are built on trust and common values. I want us to connect.
Hi it's me your own personal paparazzi for the day.
Wedding days are a roller coaster of emotions, everything is hightened. Never again will all your people be in the same room. Back when I first started I told myself that if there ever was a wedding that I didn't cry that I should pack up shop and retire. Well here I am 11 years deep and I'm still crying.
Remember as a child finding the box of old prints tucked way in a corner of your grandparents house? these are mine.
They weren't thinking about which instagram worthy images to post. They didn't care about putting on a perfectly curated production. They were just living. Thats what I want to photograph, people just living

Love is messy, un perfect, and unpredictable. This right here is why I do what I do, this is my world. We are a proud military family and no stranger to distance. At one point it was all we knew and our love lived in photographs. It was the only tangible evidence I could hold onto that proved this was a real thing. In my darkest hours I clung to those photos as a life line. All that to say, I know the power of an image, and how it can take you back home.
How can I expect you to let me in to your most treasured moments when I don't share with you mine.
THIS IS MY WHY
I never understood how fleeting time was until I became a mother. Now I see life as it passes through my daughters eyes
I know its cliche but my world and entire approach to wedding changed the day my daughter was born. In the age of likes and doing it for the gram I want to be different. I want our world to be different. I want to show my daughter that there is beauty in the imperfections. That life is about the connections we make -- that it lives beyond societies standards and highlight reels.

If you couldn't tell, I am a hopeless romantic. I am deeply empathic and just a tad emotional. I used to view being sensitive as my kryptonite, but as the years have gone by I have realized its my super power. It gives me the ability to read a room, it fuels me to chase those candids and capture all the emotions and connections in a room. At the end of the day whether I am up close in your circle being being in those memories with you or on the sidelines letting it all unfold naturally, I just want to show you how much you are loved.
The real question is
WHO AM I?
Empath. Mother. Wife. Friend
Storyteller. People Watcher. Light Chaser
If I'm lost you could probably find me roaming the aisles of Target. John Mayer has been my top played artist on Spotify for the last ten years. I believe that watching the Office can cure even the worst of days. I’m a terrible driver and even worse dancer but that’s okay because I can make a mean wedding day timeline and take an okay picture. The the way light and shadows intertwine inspire me the most, secondly to being next to any body of water. I have experienced 19 countries and counting. Thanks to the Military the last 10 years we have been transplanted in New York, Italy, Seattle, El Paso, and soon Oklahoma City. Between all of those places and lives I fell in love with the Pacific North West the most, some would say I have adapted its laid back aesthetic. New York will always be home though and like a migrant bird I'll keep coming back ( Ithaca is Gorges after all.)
