a word from faith

I fell in love with photographing weddings once I realized how healing it was to be a viewer at such emotion filled days. I noticed that photographing weddings allows me to be fully present. They continue to show me over and over again that love and connection ARE VERY IMPORTANT.

the first time I captured a first look THE bride and groom sobbed when they first saw each other. I felt those emotions myself deep within me and cried with them. Being invited into intimate moments and being the viewer of couples who experience such deep love for one another brings me so much joy and brings me back to what matters in life. -- Love.

ABOUT

I believe there’s nothing coffee, pickles, the lake, spending time with my friends and family, or my dog (Molly) can’t fix! I love to travel, do yoga, read poetry, write, and listen to live music too.

at the end of our lives we will think of all the big moments we have lived. The good, the bad, the huge and pivotal moments that forever changed us. it honors me to think about how important wedding days are. sometimes i bring myself back to remembering this and feel so grateful.

my values and why

More than just your photographer

YOUR MOMENT SAVER, YOUR ADVENTURE PARTNER,  YOUR wedding expert.

YOUR
MOMENT SAVER, ADVENTURE PARTNER,
and wedding expert.

Weddings helped me to see the spark in human connection again. Family members who lost touch reunite and dance as if time and miles never separated them, your dad dances with your mom (and maybe hasn’t in years), everyone is just so full of joy that they are dancing, laughing, singing, and catching up with relatives.

I capture for the people who cannot attend the celebration and for those who wish to relive it all. I seek the moments that pull you in like the moment after your last dance with your dad when the tears burst out of you or the moment in the night where you have a burst of “Heck yeah, I am married!”

Why I photograph...

WEDDINGS ARE THIS BEAUTIFUL CELEBRATION THAT BRINGS YOUR CLOSEST PEOPLE TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE LOVE. TO CELEBRATE THE NEW FOUND LOVE, OLD LOVE, AND THE LOVE WE HAVE FOR OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILIES.

 I SEARCH THE ROOM FOR LITTLE DETAILS THAT SPEAK VOLUMES IN PHOTOS TO SHOW THIS VERY THING. I LOVE TO PHOTOGRAPH MOMENTS WHEN GRANDMA CLINGS TO GRANDPA DURING THE CEREMONY WHILE SHE SHEDS A TEAR OR THE MOMENT WHEN YOUR MOM CATCHES HERSELF IN THE MIRROR AND REMEMBER THE DAY SHE GOT MARRIED TO YOUR FATHER. I SEEK THE MOMENTS THAT WILL LATER TELL YOUR STORY THROUGH YOUR PHOTOS.
