what's most important to you should be

The magic on your wedding day is in the stolen glances during your best friend’s toast and in the way your loved ones smile as the processional signaled the festivities beginning. They flash by because you’re in the moment living them.

My job as your photographer is to not only immortalize the small glances and bold laughter, but to capture them with the intention and compassion that your most important memories deserve. Along with the knowledge that every story is individual, I’ve crafted each of my tailored offerings with this philosophy in mind.

As you celebrate new moments together, I look forward to celebrating your legacy with anniversary, maternity, family or “just because” portraiture. My approach is rooted in my love of storytelling. I believe your images should reflect on the authentic moments that make you feel like you. Incredible images require careful planning, a trained eye for freezing passing moments in time, as well as a personal approach that makes your unique story a part of the larger process.

Christie and Brian strayed from traditional southern clichés and played into the modern lines and motifs of Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta throughout their wedding design – from their paper to their florals.

I was honored to be able to capture my second photographer's sweet family for her birthday and Mother’s Day present. We played on the grounds of Meadowlark 1939 and came away with the most lovely photos of her and her family.
