I’m a nationally published wedding and anniversary photographer for heirloom couples, devoted to capturing heartfelt love stories and telling meaningful stories with my images. I’m crazy about serving you as a storyteller so you can focus on the important things – like that handsome fella you can’t wait to marry and the beautiful marriage you’re building together! It’s my honor to know that these records of your marriage are the beginning of your family’s heritage and that they will be passed down lovingly long after we are gone. My joy is to give you an experience you’ll never forget and capture your love for exactly how beautiful it is!

Things you’d write home to your Momma about: My proudest moments are those when a bride tells me how much she loved having me a part of their wedding day, how their wedding photos made them cry with happiness, or how I made them feel beautiful in front of the camera. They are the moments I treasure and value above all else! I am also honored to have my work featured in print and nationally published online in more than a dozen publications.
Location/Coverage: Southeastern US and beyond!
How I got into weddings: I photographed my first wedding as an assistant back when I was rocking a plaid pleated skirt in high school. I won’t say how many years ago that was, but let’s just say it was an era of chunky highlights, peasant tops (yep, remember those?), and too many Lizzie McGuire episodes!
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? My favorite thing about weddings in the South is the beautiful balance of tradition and personality. Southern brides and grooms are a perfect example of how modern couples are honoring tradition in their weddings while also creating new memories that are uniquely them!
Favorite part of a wedding day? I have the honor of being a part of SO many incredible moments on the wedding day, but the moment a groom first sees his bride is one of my absolute favorites.
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? I would say slow down and SAVOR each moment. And I’m not just talking about the wedding day! There is a large portion of your life that you spend single, and then a large portion of your life you will spend as a wife. But it’s only this brief, sweet period of time that you get to spend as a fiancee! I encourage you to not let any aspect of it be lost on you. Slow down and intentionally savor each moment of your engagement and wedding day.
