I'm also a youtuber, content creator, detail-loving organizer, positive outlooker, wife of 10+ years, mastiff dog-owner, cycling enthusiast, book club member, and fan of weekend trips exploring the southeast.
I'm known for creating a seamless client experience, natural posing that feels comfortable, and timeless photography captured on both film and digital. Whether it's photographing you and your loved ones, or helping your business implement workflows that elevate your brand, I'm happy you are here!
I wanted the freedom to set my own hours. Be my own boss. Work from home so that I could easily have a family one day. I wanted a job that was creative and allowed me to frequently flex that side of my brain. So after I was introduced to the wedding photography business through the planning of my own wedding in 2011, I knew that this was the career that checked all my boxes.
I grew up in Southern California and moved to Utah State University after high school. It was there that I met and married my husband at 20 years old (young love). I never imagined that in addition to falling in love with my husband, I’d also fall in love with the wedding industry and want to start my own business.
I don’t dismiss the little things.
If there is something I want to accomplish, I’ll find a way to get it done no matter how hard it might be.
I’ve created workflows, guides, and countless youtube videos to show other photographers how to make their businesses more efficient and seamless.
In addition to digital photography, I also shoot film. Aka a hybrid photographer.

Boris is a dogue de bordeaux, or more commonly known as a french mastiff. He was with us for 7 years and was the perfect house hippo. He slept most of the day, was forced on one walk around lunchtime, and loved rolling in grass and greeting guests with his slobbery kisses. Miss you baby boy!
My husband since 2011! We met at Utah State and moved to Pennsylvania after graduating so that he could attend medical school. He then continued on to residency at Wake Forest Baptist in anesthesia, and then a fellowship in cardiothoracic anesthesia. In his free time he likes to fly fish and help me with all the house projects.
