Six years ago, I began photographing weddings. If you would've told me  seven years ago this would be my full-time job, I wouldn't believe you. But I can't imagine doing anything else in this chapter of my life, and it brings me immense joy. 

When I was in college, I changed my  major multiple times and ended up graduating with a BS in Psychology. At the time, I dreamed of being a therapist, but I felt a calling to photography. While I (hopefully) one day still plan to peruse that line of work, my way of helping others now is through photographs and all that comes with the process.

When I say I want to get to know you and your partner, I mean it. Part of that process includes sharing my life experiences as well. You'll 100% hear about my husband, my cats, my family. I'll tell you stories relevant to our experiences together, and ask you about your life. Each and every couple I work with holds a spot in both my heart and my mind, so I make sure to give them pieces of those parts of myself. Don't worry though. I won't give you a piece of  my mind in THAT way.

LET'S CHAT!

In early 2021, I photographed an engagement session. The couple, Wade and Danielle, had traveled from Florida for both the session and to tour their wedding venue. After the session, they asked me if I wanted to get some food and drinks with them. I, of course, said yes.

This was a vulnerable time in society with it being winter + ya know, the rona. We chose to spend this time together despite the potential of illness, and guess what? We had the best time. We listened to a local band play, watched North Georgia folx dance, and we talked about life. I think they probably even paid for my food.

I'm not saying we have to get drinks or hang out after your engagement session. The point is that we connected + bonded, and this made their wedding day that much more special. They could be their true and vulnerable selves with me, sans any worries. I even stayed after my coverage was over to party with them. 

let  me tell you a story...

we'll have a good time.

- Fluff your wedding dress
- Make sure your tie is straight
- Make sure you're hydrated
- Carry your dress while you walk
- Tell awesome jokes
- Reassure you if anything crazy happens
- Dance, even if there's nobody on the dance floor
- Capture the moments you think nobody saw
- Give you a big, sweaty hug at the end of the night


I don't just take pictures.

on your wedding day, i'll also...
