We feel so lucky to have had you capture our special day. Not only are the photos stunning, but we felt like we could relive the day through them. It’s magical seeing the final product executed to perfection after a year of planning and designing!

documented with ATTENTION & artistry 

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.

Every moment of your day deserves preservation, from the early moments of your morning to your final dance of the night.



As you celebrate new moments together, I look forward to helping you commemorate them with engagement, anniversary, or “just because” portraiture. 


Traveling for love is my favorite thing to do. I’ve photographed couples from coast to coast, and would love to capture your relationship wherever your love takes you.

As is tradition, Rahela and Luke's family gathered at Rahela's family home for a party to celebrate their engagement. Every aspect was a beautiful and meaningful way to celebrate our bride and groom.

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.
