Mary Elizabeth and Matt are planning a warm, August wedding this year in Auburn, Alabama. We’ll be enjoying the sunshine together soon with cocktails in hand and dancing away to a wonderful band soon!

Mother of God Ukranian Catholic Church wedding

Mother of God Ukrainian Catholic Church Jessica and Vladimir shared an intimate ceremony in Conyers, Georgia last July.

The cobblestone streets of Charleston are always charming. So when Taylor and Rich requested the French Quarter as the backdrop for their engagement photos, I gave an easy yes.

Historic Charleston Engagement Session with Taylor and Rich


This is where I love sharing recent weddings and sessions, my travels, and life with my husband, and our three pets. When I'm not capturing a wedding day, I'm often enjoying the outdoors with Garrett, playing with our pups, or finding a new place to call home for the weekend. My passion is telling love stories, and I hope I get to fall in love with telling yours.

Let's meet!
