photos

that tell a story

 to share with your grandkids

that remind you why you’re here

that are real

If I’m your photographer then you hate the little things and love the little moments. You are not someone who gets hung up about dirt on your dress and instead embraces the messiness that is life. You are someone who lives in the moment, without forgetting those around you. You have an affinity for things that feel real. I’d much rather spend my time capturing your grandmother watching from afar than setting up your rings in a stack. Emotions are better captured when they’re left to be felt in real-time. You are someone who values story-telling through photography- specifically my photography. I do not want to be your pick because I was the cheapest option, I want to be the one you connected with because you could see yourself in my photos. Because you connected with my work and simply no other photographer will do.

Intimate weddings and adventurous elopements are my bread and butter. I have never been one for traditional weddings. Being in nature sets my soul aflame. When you book an adventurous elopement with me, you can expect endless information about the area you’re getting married in. Because I’m spending all of my time outside anyways- I know what trails are best suited for you, how much coverage you'll need for each trail, what season is optimal, and how to keep a ceremony intimate even in a national park. 

Time to create the day you’ve been dreaming about. Your photos will feel like your day did.

I want to get to know you and your lover. This isn’t a business transaction, it’s us combining to create an experience you’ll get to look back on forever. That’s no small feat. More than that, I want to ensure that I’m a right fit for your day. I don’t capture large weddings and I crave authenticity- I’m not going to make us jive if we have different approaches. I want to build relationships with you from the inquiry to after you say I do. The more I know you, the better I can capture your story. We should be able to trust each other 100% come wedding day.

We get to plan this thing together. I will be there when you need help with timeline, location, and much more. I'll be hands off when you have it under control. Communication is very important to me so we will set up zoom calls to discuss everything. This is sincerely all about you and you can do whatever you want. If you can think it, we can plan it. I am 10000% about creating an experience that feels. like. you.

The wedding day is finally here. All that hard work has now paid off and all you have to do is focus on spending your life with your best friend. What an absolute honor that is. Everything from here on out is smooth sailing. No more planning, no more decisions, just bliss. I'll help keep things moving while you enjoy your day.

You did it! All the people are gone and it's just you and your partner. Now, you get to do fun things like talk about getting a kitten, think about painting your kitchen cabinets green, and have movie nights cuddled up on the couch. While you two are enjoying life together, I'll be working hard on your gallery (and sending a couple sneak peeks along the way).

Should you elope?

Keep in mind, I'm super biased because me and my husband eloped. As did my dad, my in-laws, and my brother-in-law. We've kinda realized that eloping was the way to go for us: less family drama and more just focusing on what matters. If you two are people who crave intimacy without on-lookers, eloping might be for you. Eloping doesn't just mean running to the courthouse anymore (although if that's what you want your day to look like, by all means, do it). It's more about focusing solely on you and your love without the outside influences of everything that comes with a wedding. Most of my couples who had big weddings have told me they wished they'd eloped because of how busy their wedding day was. Eloping allows you to eliminate most of the stress factors involved with a wedding and focus on the true reason behind marriage- spending your life together. Eloping is more personal, cheaper, and cooler. We can go to a traditional venue, a mountain top, a waterfall, or really anywhere your souls feel most free. I will help you plan your entire day around the area you want to elope while being respectful to the land around us. You could get ready together and enjoy the morning by taking it slow, have your first look (yes- it can still be a surprise!!!), have a ceremony that is personalized to you, take some beautiful images with me, and cap the night with a meal from a local restaurant (I would also like to come to eat some food). You would no longer have pressure to perform, act a certain way during first looks, say the right words during vows because the only people who would be around are people who accept you for you; whether that’s your immediate family or just you two.

I want you to look back at your photos in two, ten, fifty years with the same misty-eyes you had when you saw them for the first time. You can expect true-to-life editing that is timeless to guarantee your memories stay intact through the ages. I want you to feel like no moment went uncaptured, including the moments you didn’t expect to have. You should feel the laughter, warmth, sadness, joy radiate from my photos.
