Love, soft color, timeless imagery, and real moments.I WANT TO DELIVER PHOTOS THAT YOU LOVE, THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME, AND I WANT YOU TO FEEL AMAZING THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS.




FORMAL WITHOUT THE STUFFY + I'll be there to offer plenty of guidance with posing, because let's be real, having a camera in front of you without direction is like getting ready in the dark without a mirror. I will not leave you stranded or feeling awkward.


I am a North Carolina based wedding photographer who has shot weddings along the East Coast- from South Florida to upstate New York and I'll travel anywhere to capture your love story. I have a habit of romanticizing life, which I believe does nothing but benefit my photography by giving me an eye for moments to capture! The ability to find the beauty in the otherwise mundane, to appreciate the small pretty details, these are attributes that are so beneficial for me to capture the small and large. I do give direction and guidance for natural portraits for weddings and each session I do, so fear not I'll help you! But I also know when to drop back and just let moments happen. Both are essential for a complete gallery- the staged portraits and the real in between. I truly live to capture love and life, and I am so lucky to be trusted with people's most important moments.


If you hire me as your wedding photographer you aren't just getting a photographer- you'll get a hype girl, someone who can put your veil in your hair, carry your dress, arrange the dress and veil for photos, help with makeup touchups if needed, help with small emergencies that may require a safety pin or bobby pin (I've got the whole kit in my bag!), and a cheerleader throughout the day.


A few of our wedding portraits, taken in 2015. I still love and cherish these images. A testament to why I love true to life and timeless colors.


Plus I've been a bride, I've been where you are trying to decide on a photographer. I know it isn't an easy choice.

some random things I love

pizza - any beach - traveling - family time - first looks - grandparents - puppies - ok, pretty much any animal - the smell of books (and reading anything I can get my hands on) - thunderstorms - rainy summer days - rainy winter days - sunny fall days - leaves crunching under feet - the smell of coffee - iced coffee - how pleasant everyone is at Christmas - when you have something in common with a stranger
