Service, kindness, and creativity is at the heart of what I do. Your wedding day is more than a shot list to me - it's a story worth telling. I want to document your biggest emotions,  your smallest ones, and all of the subtle moments of your day. 

nice to meet you, where ya been?

I can tell that we are going to be friends.

Hey Friend! I'm so glad you're here. 

Welcome to my little creative corner. Where I get to tell important and powerful stories. My favorite thing in the world is getting to capture and tell stories that feel authentic to you, intentional in every way and a reflection of the emotions that were felt. 

My photography journey started 7 years ago in college and today has turned into documenting love stories across the country. Based out of Colorado Springs, I spend my days with my husband of five years (who happens to be the cutest second shooter around) and our three (yup, you read that right) huskies! Ask me about 'em, I've got the best home videos. 

I'm a big believer that your photos should feel timeless. I want you to be able to look back on your wedding photos 35 years later and feel that your story was captured honestly and authentically. We're not about the posed images here - it's all about the good stuff that makes you feel as much joy looking back on your photos as you did on your wedding day.
