Finding a photographer that fits who you are should be equally as important as the quality of the photos they take. It's not just about pretty pictures; you should genuinely enjoy your experience as well. That comes from with someone who gets you, and your personality. So here is me....in convenient bullet points....
* Everyday I write down five things I'm grateful for and ten goals...thank you Rachel Hollis
* I cannot get out of Target for under $100.00. Every. Time.
* I exercise for how it makes me feel, not how it makes me look
* My typical day starts with coffee and ends with wine
* Maui, during whale season, is my favorite place on earth
* My family is my heartbeat
* My husband proposed in front of the castle at Disney World. Princess level 1000, achieved.
* Did you know mini tater-tots are a thing? You're welcome.
Being a photographer is about much more than simply taking photos. I am with you during some of the most important moments of your life. I understand that the images I capture are more than just something pretty to decorate with. They are memories that will be passed along with the stories of how they came about. It's an incredible responsibility that I do not take lightly.
Whether it's your wedding day or your first family portrait, I am honored to be part of it. It's my promise to be fully present with you and to create the images that you will love for a lifetime.
Being a wedding photographer isn't something I had any idea I wanted to do. Then I started shooting and found a love for all things wedding photography!!
Every wedding is unique and crazy in it's own way. Each day has it's own personality and you work with it to take incredible pictures along the way.
When I'm not shooting weddings and couples, I'm likely in the woods. My first love is birding. I enjoy everything about it; from being outside to the actual animals. Finding the birds, evaluating their habitats, watching them do their thing...all of it is awesome for me. I have travelled all over the country to see rare birds, and to see some that won't ever make it to Ohio.
My hope is to travel more; not only for birds, but also for weddings. I would love to find myself on the beach shooting a wedding....and maybe checking out the birds as well.
my very favorite moment at any wedding is right before the ceremony when the groom is standing at the altar...adjusting his jacket and clearing his throat as he smiles over at his best man.
There's something about a nervous man, waiting on his girl, that i absolutely love!
Every one of our clients has a story. We love learning how they met, how they grew as a couple, and what their goals are for the future. We find that as we learn them, we're also investing in their journey. It's not uncommon for us to have lunch with clients just to hang out, not to discuss business. We love exchanging date night ideas, or anniversary suggestions.
We're also here to help our clients in any way we can. We're happy to offer catering suggestions, hair and makeup experiences, venue recommendations. We're here for it all!
