I'M IN THE BUSINESS OF TELLING STORIES.

The moments so good you wish time could pause. 

...The story of how you met and what you want your first home to look like. 

… The story of when he bent down on one knee and held up the ring. When, despite all the late-night thinking of what it would be like, nothing compares to the blurry but beautiful moment when you said yes. 

...Your wedding day in all its glory—putting on the earrings you borrowed from your mom, holding your breath as you wait for the first look, drinking in the crowd of people when you and your partner turn to see your cheering section in attendance. 

Well, here I am, doing what I’m passionate about—telling stories.

When I was a college student, I had no idea what I was going to do in life. I was so dang passionate about storytelling, but I had no clue how to turn this passion into a career.

and it’s my JOY to be the one to tell that story through your wedding photos. 

THAT’S MY JOB…

My sweet husband Jeffrey and I started dating in college and got married in 2019 at a French Estate in Minnesota. But trust me, we weren’t too fancy to smash the cake in each other’s face. He’s been the biggest encouragement of me and my business—and the best cat dad to Mia!

While I’m a wedding photographer now, I’ve also been the bride who is checking out every corner of a vendor’s website asking the most important question: but are they MY type of person??

So? Here’s who I am behind the camera. 

The center of my life? Jesus. I truly believe that I have been called to document and share meaningful stories and share the love of Christ with others.

We love adventuring around the world but also hanging at home with our cat, mia.

This is Jeffrey! He's the love of my life, car guy, and the best hugger you'll ever hug.
