a few facts

        i do what i do

I photograph weddings and families because my own family is the most important thing in my life. I always dreamed of a big family, with lots of kids and chaos. Sometimes dreams take a really long time to come true, but I believe in love, second chances and happily ever after. I believe that you can find JOY in even the hardest of trials and I want to celebrate that joy with you. So whether it’s your wedding day or a family portrait session, I want to be there to capture the love, the joy and maybe even the funniest thing ever, for generations to come.

I lost my mom after a four month battle with cancer. She fought with everything she had, but the cancer was too big. I know first hand the healing power of my photos with her, especially during those hard months. When we knew we had limited time left with her, I did what any great photographer would do, I scheduled family pictures. I knew that I would want to those final moments captured forever, and they are some of my most cherished possessions.

So, when your wedding day is over, I want you to remember the way your mom looked at you in your wedding dress, and the joy in your father’s eyes. I want you to feel the adoration as you see the way your husband looks at you, to feel the hope of your beautiful future together. And if you get to dance with your sister, because your mamma is in heaven, or if you get to dance with your mamma here on Earth, I want you to know that I will be there to capture every single beautiful moment of your day, the day that you marry the love of your life surrounded by those who love you the most.

My mom would have been so proud of me, and I know she’s watching me from heaven as I make this dream a reality.


about me!

even more about me   

Why?

I never thought I wanted to photograph weddings. I used to say that I was NOT doing weddings, families have always been my favorite and weddings terrified me.... but, I fell in love with photographing weddings the minute I looked at my baby brother's wedding photos. They are perfect in EVERY way. It's hard for me to explain how much I love this family of mine and how much they mean to me since we lost our mom. Maybe it's because we all know what it feels like to grieve the loss of our mother, maybe it's because we rallied around each other during those horrible months or maybe it's because we have to lean on each other now and work hard to stay close. Whatever the reason, I'm so grateful to be so close to them and to have had so many opportunities in the last year to capture us together - it's funny that the first year I start doing weddings, I have three brother's get married, smart guys, very smart!!

I'm so grateful for these 6 who are my biggest supporters, my greatest cheerleaders, and some of my best friends. Mamma would always tell us she loved us more, and while I know I can never take her place I really do love you all MORE than you will ever know!
