Bucket List





Photograph a destination wedding in Europe

Snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef

Show my (future) kids where their parents were engaged in Ireland

Spend one month in Italy eating all the pasta and seeing all the sights

A southern girl through and through, I was born and raised on a farm in Kentucky. One of the first things I learned was how to stop and smell the roses (literally)! As I got older, went off to college and studied to become a teacher, I just about forgot how to do that.

I met the love of my life in 2014, and about two years later I found myself planning my own wedding day! I soon realized I desperately needed a day that wasn’t rushed from one thing to the next, but was focused on celebrating our love and taking in the once in a lifetime moments that would fill the day. I needed a photographer who understood that and was willing to take it all in with me (and have fun doing it!). After trading in my classroom supplies for my camera, I am passionate about being that photographer for you. I believe in a luxury, stress-free photo experience that allows you to revel in your most joyful moments.

Fun Facts

I used to be a competitive figure skater (it's the only sport I was ever good at!)

I have been almost every Disney princess for Halloween growing up.

I LOVE to travel. So far I have been to England, Ireland, Belize, Haiti and France. But there are so many other places I would love to see!

My husband made my own fairy tale dreams come true when he proposed on the Cliffs of Moher (something I never thought would actually happen to me!)

Do you feel like couples photo sessions are reserved for those who are married or plan to get married? If so, that’s just silly! There is absolutely no reason why you and your partner, lover, spouse, fiancé, or significant other shouldn’t plan a photoshoot together. I’m sure many of you are thinking “I have plenty […]

There is no better way to preserve a moment and relive our favorites memories than by taking and looking back at […]
