I love what I do. Creating magic with couples that I can connect with who want to take on the world together is what brings me pure happiness. Whether it’s hanging out in a cabin eating pizza, jumping into a freezing cold lake together with our clothes on or dancing on top of a mountain at sunset listening to Cardi B… I want to document all of it. Your engagement and wedding day will be two of your first and greatest adventures together, let’s make it beautiful and memorable. 

I have been shooting weddings for 2 years now and to say it’s been amazing would be an understatement. Photographing couples in love is life changing in so many different ways because you are constantly surrounded by love and happiness. I want to connect with you and make sure I photograph what makes you happiest. I want to capture your relationship for what it truly is and who you truly are when you’re together. The real stuff. 

If there is one piece of advice I could give to any couple getting married it would be to do what you TRULY want. Weddings are usually a huge production and most of the time I notice that couples are feeling super stressed all the way until the open dance floor and that’s not how it has to be. I know it sounds important now but in the end it truly will not matter what colors the table cloths are, who’s sitting where or if you have grass stains on the bottom of your dress. Your wedding day is to celebrate you and the love of your life so make sure you can actually experience it in the moment. So close all of your Pinterest tabs and really think about what YOU want to do, where YOU want to go & who YOU want to celebrate with. That’s what will create the biggest memory that will resonate with you forever & I will be there to document it all because in the end the only tangible item you will have to take away are photographs.
