Weird name. Weens. Scooters. Adventures. Food.
Those are a few of my favorite things and you should absolutely ask me about them when we meet! Forewarned, I may talk about any of these topics for days, but it’s probably in your best interest to listen, because they’re great topics.

But seriously, I’m very outgoing, friendly, and strive to keep my clients comfortable through every part of the process from our first email, to our first meeting, to every photo we take together. I hear often from my clients that they “aren’t photogenic” or “can’t take a good photo to save my life” (so dramatic!). Tell you what, that’s perfectly ok. It’s my job to make you feel relaxed, natural, and at the end of it all itching with excitement to see your photos.

I believe wedding photography should be bright, energetic, full of life and laughter, because that’s what a wedding is to me. It’s one day that’s overflowing with excitement and happiness. I love color, I love smiles, I love outtakes. I don’t believe your photos should be moody, too serious, or make you feel like an overworked statue. As a trained photojournalist, I go for the moments in every frame I capture. I want you to feel the photos as much as you enjoy looking at them. I shoot the way I’d hope my wedding would be covered. If you haven’t already, please comb through my recent work and Facebook page to get a glimpse of what I mean!


At the end of the day, I think it really is impossible to sum up who I am, what photography means to me, and why I might be the best person to shoot your wedding in just a couple of sentences. A wedding is far, far bigger than a few sentences could ever begin to describe.
It is more powerful, more hilarious, more honest, and let’s be real, more fun than words can even handle.

But that’s what photography is for

I truly believe that I’ll never shoot the same wedding twice. It’s my goal to tap into the pulse of what makes your wedding yours, and to document it exactly as it unfolds in a way that shows off the flair of who you are.

I hope to hear from you soon!
