A bit about me…

If you're reading this holy cow, thanks for taking the time to get this far! I’m so dang excited you would like to get to know me and I’m so glad you stopped by the site. I am an elopement and wedding photographer based in Fredericksburg, VA but am willing to travel to anywhere. Even the moon. There are a few things on my list of favorite things on this beautiful planet. One is my Australian Shepherd, Dayo. Although he is a boy, he is more often than he probably should be, confused for a girl because of his soft, gentle demeanor. I believe in the importance of travel and what it can do for you mind and soul. Although I equally love to be at home on the couch watching Netflix. Hiking & fresh air gives me life & refreshes my mind. Be sure to scroll down to check out my travel dates/bucket list we may be crossing paths soon and I’d love to meet up. Last but not least I have a really amazing man in my life who not only inspires me but brings me so much happiness every day.  

But, what really wakes me up in the morning & keeps me up late at night, is my passion for photography. What I love about photography is being able to capture raw moments and the connection between people. Freezing the emotions in time and catching them in an image. It is amazing to me that a photograph can take you back to a moment in time & make you feel the same emotions you were feeling in that exact instant.

When documenting weddings, I combine my nature of being a completely hopeless romantic, with my passion for capturing moments in time. This helps me to capture a narrative through my lens & create images that tell your love story.
