Last year, I celebrated my ten year anniversary with my husband Jamie. We both love our morning coffee, watching Survivor, and getting away when the opportunity presents itself. As a couple, we support each other and I often find that my husband is far more creative than I am. He builds custom pieces of furniture for fun, crafts stunning pieces of wall art used to display in our home, and can often be found renovating or building something in and around the house.
He also supported me when my idea of pursuing photography was just a pipe dream. He enrolled me in my first class that helped me to understand the settings in my camera and he's my most honest critic. He was 100% behind me when I made the leap from my former line of work into photography fulltime, and it's because of him I was able to pursue my passion and make it a career.
As a mother of two kids, my days are often built around them. My daughter Kamryn is a funny, spirited, and bright 8 year old who would much rather watch youtube videos than go to school. When she's not in class learning, you can find her skiing (in the winter), taking karate or art classes. We enjoy our Friday nights ordering take out, watching movies on Netflix and trying to make slime.
While Kamryn is in school, my day belongs to my little man Deegan. My soon to be 3 year old loves Peppa Pig, playing with his toy cars, and eating more cookies than should be allowed! He is diagnosed with Apraxia and a Sensory Processing Disorder, so my time is often spent working with him and participating in his therapy sessions.
I don't believe in coincidences. I believe that we forge our own way in life and God blesses that path. My journey to get where I am hasn't always been easy, but I do believe that God has blessed this path and I continue to be humbled by all the couples who have displayed faith and trust in allowing me to capture their love stories. And really...that's what draws me to photography. It's more than taking a picture. It's more than being able to properly expose your camera. For me, photography is a medium that allows me to creatively tell another person's story and capture all the emotions that go along with it. Photography moves me in a way that no other work ever did and it inspires me everyday. I take great pride in being able to tell your story.
In capturing your day in a way that is both elegant, timeless, and a perfect reflection of what you love and value most. My philosophy is simple. I believe in transparency. I believe in treating all my clients with kindness and respect. I love learning about them and listening to what matters most for them. Your wedding day is just as important to me as it is to you and while photography is the bulk of what I do, I value my clients and often work with them, helping to guide them to develop a wedding timeline that is ideal and best suited for them. I call it a wedding experience. And my job is to help you have the best possible wedding experience so that you walk away with a happy ending.
There is a lot of hustle and bustle going on at a wedding, and having the perfect 'wingman' to compliment my style is essential...so meet Adam! Adam is a gifted and seriously talented photographer in his own right, and brings a unique eye to any wedding that he accompanies me to.
He has a dangerous obsession with camera equipment (which you will see for yourself!), a love for all things detail oriented, and when he's not working a wedding with me, you can find him building his own portfolio specializing in portrait photography!
