Photojournalist of Romantic Moments

You're looking for a high quality photographer that will capture your wedding day beautifully. I care about creating an environment where you can truly be yourself in front of the camera. My goal is to deliver a unique and timeless gallery from your wedding day that is an authentic representation of your love, one that makes you something.

I'm so excited you're here!

I document modern and romantic moments by capturing the honest and real story of my couples. I like to think of photography as taking all of the in-between moments from your day, folding them into a neat pile and putting them in a safe place so you can always relive the joy you were feeling. 

I'm born and raised in Hampton Roads, Virginia. I'm a momma to two beautiful girls and blessed to be married to the love of my life. If I don't have a camera in my hand, I'm either running after my crazy toddlers or relaxing with a bottle of wine.

I am happy to be your guide, help bustle your dress and remind you to drink water but more importantly, capture those candid intimate moments so they go unmissed. My hope is that by the time it's your wedding day, we'll be good friends.
