It started when I was 13 with the 40+ hours a week I spent building a jewelry business. It wasn't a perfect science, yet somewhere between juggling entrepreneurship and high school, I discovered photography. It became this incredible art that allowed me to foster relationships and document the details that I always noticed in the way we operate as humans- tender glances that reassure or laughter that causes everyone else to smile.
In the past 7+ years, the most beautiful images I've seen or developed are the ones that make you feel something. I believe attention to detail and comfort is key in the pursuit of creating art and meaningful photographs. If I have the privilege of working with you, I’d like for you and those that take part in your day or session to feel at ease. I'm incredibly passionate about people and experiences. I believe wedding days are a distinct opportunity to be encouraged by the purpose of marriage while serving others- whether you're a groom, guest, or vendor. Photography is just as much about the art of relationships as it is craftsmanship in the photographs I deliver.
I am currently living in Lynchburg, Virginia, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. After studying Business & Marketing at Liberty University- followed by traveling the U.S. for 8 months- I settled here in early 2017 to spend my work week as a marketing specialist and my weekends as a wedding photographer. Though this is my home base, most weekends I'm on my way to weddings and projects across the country (moving 13 times before you're 20 allows you to make a few friends & develop a love for change). I've found that I'm most at home somewhere between Virginia, the ocean, and any given airport coffee shop- always discovering, always learning to treasure people most and how to hold loosely to dreams and things
