Wedding & portrait photographer servicing West Virginia.  I also LOVE to travel and would love to come to you! Not in West Virginia?

True beauty is not of the body or of the face, no, it is a thing of the soul - of fire and air, of breath and spirit, something brave and unafraid.

I'm a West Virginia born and raised photographer specializing in natural light photography!  My other favorite places are Nashville - Franklin to be exact, South Carolina and Texas - each hold a special place in my heart! :) Traveling is a passion of mine and I will gladly pack my bags to come to you! 

I love anything rose gold and pink, diet coke and anything sweet! I cry at every wedding. My pups are my children. I have a 2 year old chiweenie, Bentli, who thinks he rules the roost and a 9 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! 

I officially started this crazy ride 3 years ago when my best friend asked me to photograph her newborn. Before that, my love for photography started clear back when I was just a little thing. My parents gave me their old polaroid when I was 5. I remember taking pictures of my turtles, my dog, my family and of course, my toys! When I was 15, my step-mom gave me my first big girl camera. I toted it everywhere!  

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 my clients. Behind my images should be a memory holding one of the best days of your lives! 

I am so excited to meet you!
