I am a gal from Decatur, Illinois who knows every single line to the movie Hocus Pocus and is 100% unashamed. I love Halloween, I live for autumn & moody tones, love watching the Office, and you can bet that I am 100% craving ice cream this very second. I'm an inclusive wedding photographer and believe that everyone should have access and funds to beautiful photographs.
“THERE'S A LOT OF BEAUTY IN ORDINARY THINGS. ISN'T THAT KIND OF THE POINT?" - PAM, THE OFFICE
I fell in love with photography as a child. My family always had photo albums of ev-ery-thing. When my dad passed away, my little sister and I each got a binder that contained every picture, card, drawing, and craft that we had given him through the years, and I treasure that more than anything I own. I understand the power behind photographs. I started photography as a hobby but in December 2018 after much bribery, I decided to make it a business. I am so thankful for the way it has evolved and am continuously blessed by the people I have encountered.
I think it's so important to portray the emotion behind the images, and capture the true feeling of the day. I focus on getting to know you so that I can convey exactly how you would want your story told, and you can bet your booty I will absolutely still check in on you after our time together is finished. I love nature and the natural tones that the Earth provides - rich greens, muddy browns, deep reds, etc. I am on trend with the candid photography and strive to capture people as their raw, authentic self.
My favorite people to work with are those who are down to earth, and don't take life too seriously. I'm not the photographer for everyone for sure. I'm for those who love the in between genuine moments, who prefer capturing emotion over technicality, who are non-traditional and like to have a little fun in order to get a stellar shot. I love to travel and will bop into my car to come photograph you wherever you are! If all this sounds like your jam, then I'm your gal!
