HISTORY 

I have been documenting love stories professionally since 2011.  I have a huge passion for great love stories. I knew I wanted to become a photographer from the time I took a black + white film class in high school.  I love everything about the art of film photography, from chasing the light, the smell of the darkroom, and to all the happy accidents that happen during the development process. In college I majored in graphic design and photography, so naturally as my photography career grew more successful I decided to grow my brand  to include wedding paper products (invite suites, save the dates, wedding day paper products) as well as most stationery needs.  I enjoy having multiple creative outlets and hope to be able to create something for you!

PHOTO STYLE 

I am a natural light documentary style photographer. I take a photo journalistic approach to your wedding day, which simply means I capture the day organically as it happens. I tend to shoot with a whimsical, romantic and ethereal style.  I shoot with digital for full weddings but I am working to integrate film for engagement, portrait and some of your wedding day imagery. 

DESIGN STYLE 

I love simplistic designs with touches of femininity and whimsy with a hint of bohemian.  I love working with typography and minimal graphics. I love rustic, floral and folk style art, which tends to come through in my design work. I love paper products and I love adding embellishments like twine, jute, lace and pearls and a few sparkles (because every girl likes to sparkle)!

CURRENTLY 

I am currently a photographer and designer based in Mishawaka, Indiana and am available for travel worldwide.  I have a beautiful English Labrador named, Winston who is the biggest sweetheart I have ever met. And a handsome husband, Miles, who is my second shooter extraordinaire. 

INSPIRATIONS 

  • NATURE! I can't say this enough. I love being surrounded by the earth and all that it naturally provides for us. I love camping, hiking and having respect for our giant world. 
  • TRAVEL! I am so inspired by so many different places and cultures. There is so much beauty in this world.
  • LOVE! I love great love stories.  There is nothing more inspiring than two people in love who are committing their lives to each other. It is beautiful, romantic and I am so incredibly humbled to get to share in the experience with others. 

WHY WEDDINGS? 

I enjoy photographing weddings because I am a complete sucker for love.  I love everything about a wedding day. The excitement, the nerves, all the pretty details, and the commitment that two people in love are making to each other.  I enjoy fast paced and challenging environments and creating memories that my clients will cherish for generations. I love collaborating with my clients to create images that are unique and special to them.
