Wedding & Engagement Photographer | Taco Lover | Dog Mom

I used to believe in a fairy tale love story until I learned that real life love is so much better! It's messy, unpredictable and so beautiful. Capturing these amazing love stories are what drives my passion in telling your unique story so you can share this monumental moment for generations to come.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
— JEREMIAH 29:11

I'm a West Virginia born and raised photographer specializing in natural light photography. My favorite places to shoot are Nashville, South Carolina, Charleston to be exact & California- the light in Cali is AMAZING! - each place holds a special place in my heart! :) Traveling is a passion of mine and I will gladly pack my bags to come to you!

My pups are my children. I have a 5 year old chiweenie, Bentli, who thinks he rules the roost and a 12 year old princess pound puppy, Roxie, who actually rules the roost! My little guy loves to sit on my lap while I edit and my girl snores like a freight train through anything and everything, except thunderstorms. She is terrified! 

On some shoots, you will get the chance to meet my silly boyfriend. He is my personal snake fighter (we all need one of those, huh?) and all my couples love him! He helps lighten the mood. He even gets invites to weddings all the time as a guest that I work, Lol. He is something else!

Pictures preserve more than a memory, they preserve an emotion. When I look back at certain occasions in my life, I remember more than just the picture; I am reminded of the sounds, smells and emotion felt while the picture was taken. This is what I want to do for each and every one of you. Behind my images should be a memory holding one of the best days of your lives! 

I am so excited to meet you!
