Ever since I first picked up a camera, I was drawn to photographing people! I realized quickly that it wasn't just people I was drawn to, but that I wanted to capture the moments they experienced. There's something magical about preserving a memory for the rest of your life- it may have only happened in an fraction of a second, but it can be yours to remember & revist at anytime. Forever.
My favorite photographs are candid ones full of emotion- a frozen moment in time that makes your heart skip a beat! I love using bright, vibrant colors as well as dramatic black & whites that reflect how these moments were for an instant, almost surreal. It wasn't long before I started photographing weddings and I was hooked- its one of the most emotional and beautiful days of your life, and I want to be the one to document all of those fleeting moments for you and your family to cherish. Im not an "in your face" type of wedding photographer, but one who hangs out and captures your day as it happens naturally, allowing you to enjoy as much of it as possible!
I'm extremely passionate about what I do, but its just as important to know that I'm very experienced. I've been in business for 7 years, have shot over 150 weddings and three times as many portrait sessions. I'm committed to constantly learning and developing my art; I attend conferences, workshops, & networking events several times a year, work with other professional photographers and vendors, and volunteer my time to charities!
I'm easy going, down to earth, and laid back. I enjoy the small things in life and I look for the best in people, so I tend to get along with just about anyone. I LOVE to travel, especially on road trips ~ I've driven cross country 4 times & have lived in California, Hawaii, and New York! I also love art & music, meeting new people, singing loudly in my car, and practically anything vintage! When I'm not working, I spend most of my time with my amazing boyfriend, our gorgeous little girl, and our two labs; there's nothing that I love more than time with my little family!! We enjoy the outdoors as much as possible, though we're known to frequent Chuck E. Cheese fairly often (I'm positive my boyfriend likes it even more than our daughter!). My family means the absolute world to me and they are constant sources of inspiration in my life, and in my photography!
I would be honored to document all the beautiful moments, emotions, and memories that will make your wedding day worth remembering forever!
