let's do this thing

Whether it be planning the perfect wedding day vibe, or the letterboard for your baby’s monthly photos… I see you checking those things off your list. 

Hey there! I see you

maybe you have a shiny new piece of bling on that left finger…
or even a not-so-shiny toddler hanging off your left leg?

“Snappin’ necks & cashin’ checks!” (If you got that reference, then I think we just became best friends)

As busy as you may be, I bet photography is not just another “to do” for you. It’s important. But, maybe you’re over the scroll by this point.

Let’s start focusing on getting your story told through photos that are authentic, not awkward. Because I freaking LOVE taking people from, “We’re pretty awkward in front of the camera…”
to “Oh my gosh! I look pretty! These pictures really feel like us. How did you do it?”

Ummm, here’s the thing, this is how you already look to everyone who knows & loves you. I swear on my collection of black leggings.



So feel free to freshen up that coffee, or top off that margarita, and stick around for awhile. I promise I will never ask “Are you still here?” Not cool, Netflix, not cool.

I Believe...

that love is love & marriage is all-inclusive.

in waterproof mascara & crying on your wedding day.

in the significance of everyday moments.

in a great experience. people will remember how they felt when a photo was taken.

that photos grow more & more valuable as time passes, we cannot always comprehend the true importance of a moment until long after it has passed.

the small moments are really the big ones.
