You're getting a best-friend, someone to help guide you through this season, someone to fix your veil, hype you up, grab a tissue when you start crying, AND who happens to snap bomb photos of you all during your day! 

So if you love adventuring and living life, then ditch the norm and do you! What brings your heart joy? What is authentically YOU? Now go do that! And I am here to help make that happen!

You are getting more than JUST a photographer

Let's get down to Business 

I am an enneagram type 2 to my core! I want to care and be there for you through the entire process. From easy booking, to having a blast during your engagement photos, to helping with your wedding day timeline, and beyond!

oftentimes couples have commented that I have a  "BEST-FRIEND FACTOr" to help with all the big and little tasks in a fun way! I AM ON YOUR TEAM AND ON YOUR SIDE!

Who am I?..

Posing - I DEEPLY BELIEVE in BRINGING OUT THE BEST OF WHO YOU ARE - whether goofy+silly, or intimate+romantic! I WILL HELP WITH POSING, LIGHTING, AND GUIDING, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BE OPEN, WILLING, AND BE YOURSELF!

And SAY GOODBYE TO THE AWKWARD + STIFF prom POSES AND HELLO TO CONNECTION AND ENCHANTMENT! I will help loosen you up and capture some stunning moments.

Editing - I SHOOT AND EDIT BASED OF THE SCENE, MOOD, AND LIGHTING! I WANT YOUR PHOTOS TO BE UNIQUELY AND AUTHENTICALLY YOU while remaining timeless. I would describe my editing as bright, natural, and moody!

Editing + Posing Style

I started documenting what was around me back in 2015 while I was overseas serving as a missionary. It has been the most amazing adventure ever since!

How long have you been taking pictures?

I'm based out of Asheville, NC.

Yes! I absolutely love to travel - Check out my travel schedule on my TRAVEL page.

Where are you based? Do you travel?

My style is a mixture of candid + posed (I photograph real people and I can help guide you through being in front of the camera). My editing is bright, natural, and moody!

What is your editing/posing style?

This greatly depends on how busy I am, but typically turnaround time for weddings is 10-12 weeks, and engagement sessions is 2-3 weeks.

What is your turnaround time?

Don't fret - I am here to help! I will chat with you about your vision and then send tried and true locations for you to select from.

How do we pick a location?

YES!! After paying for most of our wedding ourselves, I am here to help in your experience any way I can!

Do you offer payment plans?

110%! I have a Pinterest board for inspiration and am happy to give my two-cents if it is wanted.

Can you help us coordinate outfits?

No. That would be like asking a painter for the blank canvas and tubes of paint they planned on creating with - it is not my style!

will you give us raw images?

YAY! Let's set up a time to chat and make sure that our personalities fit well together - head over to my contact form and we will get it set up!

sold—how do we book you?

Typically is starts with us chatting, getting to know each other, me putting on some music and then we go frolic and play on whatever mountain top, field, or waterfall we chose that day. And it normally ends with sore face cheeks from smiling and new friendships.

what is a session like?

You are not alone! I would say easily +90% of the people who get in front of my camera say something similar. I photograph REAL people the majority of the time and I am here to help bring out your love and individual beauty to capture it - bonus: we will probably have a lot of fun, too!

what if we are awkward in front of the camera?

Most likely, yes! I would love to hop on a call and see if I would still be the best fit for you, but I am always down to explore with my camera and capture your once in a lifetime moments.

We LOVE your work but aren’t having an intimate wedding, will you still work with us?

Let's chat on the phone—I am an open book and would love to answer them!
