If this has you thinking, “Wow, she gets me,” then:

• You believe being in the moment is far more important than perfection
• You’re down to roll with the punches regardless of the weather forecast
• You want candid, unposed, and emotion-filled moments captured (Don’t worry—I’ll still get posed family pictures and the photos of you two to make grandma and mom happy)
• You say “screw it” to all the things that may not go as planned, because you know it doesn’t matter as long as you two are together

I AM your girl if:

Your nose crinkles up from uncontrollable laughter, your hair moves to the speed of the wind, your shoes have specks of dirt on them, your PDA is at an all-time high, and your heart is as full as it gets.
Let me first just say that if you’re looking for a photographer who only views you as a date on the calendar, then I'm not your girl.

CAPTURING THE CANDID ENERGY IN EVERY PORTION OF YOUR DAY.

For the bride-to-be looking for a stress-free wedding day

for brides

I specialize in:
weddings. elopements. couples sessions.

My philosophy? It's simple. If you make the investment in me, I promise I will invest in YOU. Your investment will guarantee high quality, perfectly curated photographs to keep your special day in your heart forever. I don’t just make up a random price. It is carefully calculated to account for my time and commitment. So let’s invest in each other, and I promise you’ll be glad we did.

I take my role so seriously, that most times I end up bustling your dress, fixing grandma’s lipstick, buttoning your dress, DJ-ing your day, holding your flowers, and making sure YOU TWO are stress-free from start to finish. I’m not just a photographer. I’m someone who cares SO deeply about what is sure to be one of the happiest days of your life. 

I get it, especially since I have five sisters and watched each of them plan their weddings on a budget. However, I also know I’m not just a person showing up on your wedding day to take pictures. I literally invest everything that I am into your day.

my offering

Okay fam, I know how real budgets are.

Engagements and Couples starting at $400.

Forget the posed pictures, the inauthentic backdrops, and the studio props that just aren’t YOU. Couples sessions and engagement sessions capture you and your love in YOUR environment. Maybe that’s devouring ice cream, smiling down North Ave. Beach, taking a stroll along your town’s waterfront, or playing Frisbee on the beach. Or perhaps it’s hiking in the mountains, biking to the farmer’s market, or roasting marshmallows over a bonfire. It doesn’t matter, as long as it speaks to your hearts.

engagements + couples

Elopements starting at $3000.

Some dream of the big dress, lengthy guest list, and decked out venue. Others prefer an intimate adventure surrounded by picturesque views and a select few loved ones. If the latter sounds like you, then my elopement package may be the perfect fit.

She doesn't make your wedding look beautiful, she takes the beauty in every living being's soul and lets it shine for the life that it is.

   Looking back over our photos she definitely captured the raw and glowing emotions we felt that day and it was perfect. It was EXACTLY what we were looking for! So thankful we found her, and would SO highly recommend her to capture your wedding day.
