I started shooting weddings nearly a decade ago, yet still wake up every day feeling so excited that this is my job! There is something so special about witnessing a couple go from engaged to married – and getting to document it knowing the images will be passed down and cherished for generations is truly humbling. I wouldn't want to ever do anything else!

I'm from Arkansas and live one block away from the house I grew up in (guess you could call me a homebody). I'm a foodie with a weak spot for charcuterie boards and indie music, and I love Christmas so much that I don't take December weddings just so I can soak in the season as much as possible. Yes, twinkle lights are GOAT.

My husband is my best friend, and I'm grateful every day that we are parents to two amazing little boys. I call my sisters wayyyy too much, eat sushi more than I care to admit, and Sundays are strictly reserved for QT with my family.

I never planned on growing up and becoming a wedding photographer, but now that I’m here it makes perfect sense. As a little girl, I told everyone I wanted to be an artist someday. After college, I landed a job as an art director at an ad agency. While I did love my job, I still dabbled in different creative outlets on the side, including cake decorating for awhile before teaching myself photography.

When my husband and I got engaged I decided to splurge on our dream wedding photographer. The moment I saw our wedding photos, I realized being a wedding photographer was something I wanted to do. It’s so much more than taking pretty pictures… it’s creating priceless heirlooms for generations to cherish. 

I shot my first weddings in 2013 and was able to go full-time in January 2014. Over the years, I have photographed hundreds of weddings and traveled all over the world for this incredible job! I still pinch myself that I get to do what I love for a living. 

HOW I GOT HERE

My style focuses on joyful, dreamy, romantic images full of beautiful light and natural emotion. I look for good light everywhere I go, and if I’m behind a camera there’s a good chance I’ll let out a squeal of delight when the delicious light comes out! I love photos where my clients look and feel like the best versions of themselves – my goal for every photograph is to capture true joy and memories!

I am a hybrid photographer, which means I shoot on both film and digital cameras. Film is my favorite medium, and I'm in love with the dreamy colors, the buttery-soft look, and the intimacy that shooting on film gives me. It forces me to slow down and think about each shot, and it's a timeless medium of photography my clients love. I also shoot digitally in fast-paced or low-light situations. I edit my digital images to match the tones of my film ones, with a goal of making them seamless in your curated gallery.
