I can’t wait to meet you and hear your beautiful love story!

Photography has been a profound blessing that I stumbled upon in college. Once I discovered it, I instantly fell in love.

There’s nothing quite like capturing the overflowing happiness of your wedding day and witnessing the magic as you and your best friend become husband and wife. I thrive on serving you, ensuring you feel like royalty and completely at ease in front of the camera. It’s in all the little details that I find true delight. And when I hear about your tears of joy after viewing your gallery, it reaffirms why my job is the best.  

Photography isn’t just a passion for me.

We always had a "thing" for each other (even during those awkward years haha!) but didn't start dating until the end of our senior year! We said "I Do" in December of 2012. Honestly, he is my absolute favorite person, and I feel so blessed to spend my life with him.

From outdoor adventures to watching Survivor reruns, we really love to do everything together, including photography! Josh and I love traveling the world and seeing history come to life while learning about new cultures. Whether it's a church mission trip, or vacation with our best friends, meeting new people and hearing their stories is our favorite part of each adventure!

Josh and I have known each other since 7th grade!

Capturing your authentic moments. creating vibrant, romantic images.

 It’s amazing to see where I started and where this gift has taken me. I have met the most incredible people, photographed breathtaking weddings, and formed connections that will last a lifetime! I truly feel honored and blessed to call this my "job"!


After 6 years in Georgia, we felt called back to Florida to serve at another church. During our move, my husband said to me "You have always talked and dreamed about being a full time wedding photographer. This move is like a fresh start, why don't you just go for it?" SO I DID!! I enrolled in many online education courses to hone my photography and business skills, gradually gaining confidence with each photoshoot.


With no teaching jobs available in Georgia, I began working in graphic design, Photoshop, and photography. Although photography was mainly on the side, I began shooting weddings for close friends and acquaintances, realizing THIS is what I wanted to do. I LOVED serving and celebrating with couples on their special days!


 I taught kindergarten for one year in Fort Myers. Then we felt the Lord calling us to become Youth Pastors which led us to Georgia. 


I studied elementary education in college and discovered my love for various forms of art. Josh and I both enrolled in a photography course together because it was an elective we could both take — we loved it!
