I’m a film and digital photographer who’s going to tell your wedding story with a mix of artistry and real life. You’ll receive photographs that resemble timeless paintings you’ll want to hang in your home forever, but also capture the real feeling of the day! With me as your photographer, you’ll truly be able to be present at your wedding, and have comfort knowing that through your photos, you’ll be able to RELIVE every moment again and again for the rest of your lives!

When I’m not photographing dreamy weddings, you can usually find me refinishing antique furniture, taking spontaneous road trips with my husband, reading fantasy fiction novels (currently in the middle of the Outlander series), or working at my home office with a seasonal candle burning in the corner.
