I'm a hopeless romantic with a passion for capturing thoughtful and timeless images that feel honest and genuine. I've had a deep love for photography ever since I was given my first camera in middle school. Even so, the opportunity to photograph and serve couples in love is a dream I didn't know I had until college. I graduated from Anderson University in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in business marketing. My education and experiences continue to help me provide my clients with a joyful and exceptional photography experience.
When I'm not photographing timeless love stories, you can find me hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains with my family, talking about life over cups of coffee with dear friends, listening to and singing worship music, playing the piano, or day-dreaming about my next adventure. I'm a Christ-follower and I seek to place my relationship with God first and to honor Him through everything I do. In this, I believe the opportunity to serve couples and families through photography is more than just a job...it is a gift!
Some of my favorite places so far include France, Canada, California, Colorado, Seaside, and Charleston, of course! Some locations on my bucket list include Greece, Italy, Ireland, Austria, & Iceland!
I'm convinced that we are made better for spending time in nature. Taking some time for hiking, canoeing, or actually stopping to smell the roses is SO good for the soul. I jump at any opportunity to soak in all the beauty that surrounds us on this earth.
My faith in Jesus is where I find strength and joy. I committed my life to Jesus 20 years ago and that feels so incredible to say! I know my ultimate purpose is to share the Good News of Jesus and I strive to place this at the center of everything I do.
Give me a caramel latte in a cute mug and I'm golden! A hot cup of coffee can instantly lift my spirits. If I'm enjoying my coffee while chatting with a loved one, even better! I'm always amazed by the sweet conversation that comes about when a cup of coffee is involved.
Each flower type has so many beautiful and intricate details. Some of my favorite flowers are garden roses and ranunculus. I love to create arrangements to enjoy at home and I hope to have a gorgeous cutting flower garden at home one day!
