about us
I am a deep thinker and feeler. I’m inspired by new experiences, art, literature, and reflection. I love the feeling of smallness I get from standing on ocean cliffs or meandering through a city. My life revolves around storytelling, and I absolutely love it.

our approach / working with us
I will tell the story of your love in an emotive, honest, and artistic way. My goal is to capture how your day feels through images, like visual poetry. A glance, a touch, a smile. Intimacy and emotion and connection. I believe in the beauty of still, quiet moments as well as joyful, energetic ones. My shooting philosophy blends a photojournalistic approach with editorial artistry. I am always searching for the in-between moments of intimacy and connection. I do minimal posing, aimed at fostering authentic connection. On wedding days I’m a mouse capturing natural moments as they unfold, with minimal intervention.

why we love weddings
People in love are enchanting creatures, and I'm constantly inspired by the couples I get to meet. Everyone loves in a different way, and I adore seeing how a couple creates a meaningful day that celebrates and reflects their unique love story. I'm inspired by all the love stories I get to witness - each is unique, and the many ways that love manifests is beautiful. I love the chaos and the stillness and the tangible emotion in the air on a wedding day. I love the way the lovers look at each other when they think nobody is watching. It is amazing to me that I am trusted to witness and memorialize people’s most intimate moments. I seek to curate artful and authentic moments in my work. I specialize in shooting full wedding weekends and other nontraditional weddings. Instead of packing 3 weddings in a weekend, I take on a very limited number of couples a year and spend time with them. Connection is extremely important in my work.

our travel policy
I am a travel photographer - 90% of my weddings and elopements take place in another state or country. I currently live in Dallas but I am moving to the west coast next summer. Traveling makes me feel alive. A full list of my current travel dates can be found on my site on the "book me" page, and I'm constantly adding new travel dates.
