my story


Taking pictures is in my blood. I had two grandmothers that took excessive amounts of photos with the boxes, film, and books to prove it. With them gone, it's comforting to look back at the hundreds and hundreds of photos and see that their stories are forever etched on a tangible artifact. That's what I serve to all my clients - photos that memorialize small pieces of life for generations to come.


Photography ebbed and flowed for me until my senior year of high school, at which point I decided to build my skills at Southeast Missouri State. I graduated in 2021 with my BS in Commercial Photography and double minors in Marketing and Fine Arts Entrepreneurship. During those 4 years, I shot for 8 brands, roughly 35 weddings, and 134 models, totaling over a terabyte of photos.


There's a lot I could say about the experiences I've had in the past five years. While I learned invaluable lessons with each and every shoot, my favorite of all was finding my life's purpose - connect with others, build relationships, and provide an art form that tells your stories.

FAQ

How do you photograph weddings?

I shoot weddings digitally with the added option to shoot some film. I have two cameras and multiple lenses that I will use to capture your day, along with multiple batteries and many cards to store your wonderful photos. I occasionally shoot with a second shooter but that is ultimately up to you!

where are you based? do you travel?

I'm based in St. Louis with roots in Cape Girardeau, MO. Invite me to shoot your wedding in Phoenix, New Orleans, Raleigh...I want to shoot all over the country!

What is included in your packages?

My involvement in your day is much more than just "taking pictures". I will be your messenger, confidant, hair fixer, wardrobe assistant, timeline maker, liaison, problem solver... there are lots of little things that can go into your day that you might not think of 0 and I'm prepared for all of them. I always have bobby pins, tissues, contact solution, and snacks. We'll be spending a lot of time together and I promise to make you feel comfortable through it all.

how are your packages priced?

My wedding packages start at $3000. All packages include a complimentary engagement session. I also have a la carte options that can be added on.
