About the photographer

I am a wedding & portrait photographer based in St. Louis, MO but love to travel and am willing to go anywhere your adventure takes you! I’m at my most creative surrounded by nature or inspiring architecture, with laid-back adventurous couples. My shooting style is a mix of candids & slightly composed portraits. I have a love for those in-between moments and am obsessed with movement and light! I want to capture your love in a way that is truly unique & special to you. Every love story is different! 

Taking photos isn’t just a job to me, it’s my greatest passion. I’ve been interested in the art of creating photographs ever since I was a young child. I didn’t find my niche until about 2010, when I discovered my love for concert photography. From there my passion only grew, and in 2014 I created my business! For me, a photograph represents a memory frozen in time, ready to take us back to that moment anytime we wish. Memories are precious, and how awesome is it that we get to relive them through photographs?! I want to create the same feeling for you! 

Other things I enjoy in life: a full shelf of unread books, a hot mug of matcha,biking around my city, seeing live music, playing my ukulele, adventuring in nature, and seeing the world!
