adventurous wedding and portrait photographer

the vision

My goal is to capture your most authentic moments; the little ones you may not even realize happen, and the big ones that you will remember the rest of your life. I am photographer who takes a documentary and photojournalistic approach to your day that is lively and romantic. As someone who lives mindfully, I make sure I am present and in the moment during your wedding. 

Choosing your wedding photographer is no easy choice. I know that I am not the right fit for every couple, and that is okay. I  really love getting to know my couples and their stories before

a contract is even signed or a retainer fee paid I'd love to sit down for a cup of coffee or a beer to chat about you and you fiancé! ...and if you are not local to the St. Louis area, not a problem...we can set up a video chat anytime!

I hope you treasure and share the images we create and their value will increase over the years for future generations and memories.

My clients like me for my friendly and considerate demeanor. They trust me because I know trust is earned and I will work to earn  it.

I am small town grown with an adventurous soul. I love all things lavender,  am a kitty mom, runner, and cooking enthusiast. I believe in the little things, the ones that make up the bigger picture, that you should always be your genuine self, and being gracious and kind to one another is key in life.

 Spending afternoons in antique and thrift stores is my jam, along with the occasional dumpster dive. I have an itchy travel bug inside me that hopes to one day see the world. I have a second passion in interior Design and actually have a degree in it along with my Photography degree. 

I've been shooting weddings, portraits, and all sorts of other images since 2012. I practice in Film photography as well. Film was what initially drew me to photography and couldn't imagine my career without it. 

 I cannot wait to hear your story and help it come to life in photographs. Please say HELLO! I would love to chat about you and your story over coffee or food or both! Yum!
