I love weddings, I believe in marriage, I love my couples, and I love love stories. I LOVE MY JOB! Being part of the most love-filled days is pure magic. You know the saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words”? Well, I believe a picture is worth a thousand feelings.

Literally what I'm doing!
Diet Coke, pink Starbursts, Chick-fil-a
Madewell, Lululemon, Anthropologie. Sigh.
Finding the perfect gif.
Always the beach.
Anything country! Don't judge!
No joke, I woke up one day and asked myself this exact question. Then I got to work! Researched every single thing I could about being a photographer. Became an online education junkie. And started photographing anything and anyone who would let me!
The early years included a lot of families, kids and babies. I quickly learned that I was NOT a newborn photographer. I was honing my craft on families and kids but couldn't shake the feeling that I needed to try photographing a wedding. So I found a photographer willing to take a chance on me as a second shooter. I will never forget that first wedding!
I came home from photographing that first wedding and KNEW to my core this is what I wanted to do. The passion was ignited, and I went all in. I rebranded to being a wedding photographer only, and went full speed ahead! Best. Decision. Ever.
There's no better industry than the St. Louis wedding industry! As my business grew, so did my community. Then came creative collaborations and new connections: co-hosting styled shoots for photographers, flat lay play days, mentorships, masterminds and vendor meetups.
I continue to be amazed at the truly remarkable couples that trust me with their memories, and the incredible industry friends I have made along the way! And we've really only just gotten started!
It's about more than hiring someone to hold a camera and snap a few pics. Wedding photography is about capturing the joyful, bright, authentic moments of your big day in a way that beautifully tells the story of your love.
