I want your wedding photos to feel like "you."
My typical client could be described as fun, goofy and maybe a bit offbeat!
The weddings I document are all over the map; from simple DIY non-traditional weddings, to crazy-tipsy celebrations with elaborate details. However you approach your big day, I'm ready to jump in and have fun with you!
I am typically a documentary shooter; simply capturing your day as it unfolds. When it comes time to 'pose' you, expect clear posing directions and a good laugh to create stunning portraits that reflect your love and individual personalities.
It's totally true! Your wedding IS one of the best days of your life, complete with the biggest & best party you'll ever throw! Your wedding is the one day when family and friends are together in one place.
. . . and that is something that doesn't happen every day!
I am your typical artist with an eclectic soul, night-owl tendencies, and the ongoing drive to create something beautiful. My sense of humor and coffee addiction are the two things that have always kept me moving through this busy life of mine. I love all things wedding, my awesome clients and challenging myself to create something new and different every time my camera is in my hand.

Not going to lie, I'm kind of a nerd.
I love reading non-fiction, watching documentaries and I play the clarinet. My family and my three dogs are where my heart lives. I also enjoy listening to music, eating amazing food, traveling, & drinking way too much coffee.
I actually never set out to be a photographer. It took me awhile to find photography and it took me even longer to find myself . . . but somehow, 9 years ago I ended up with a DSLR camera as a college graduation gift from my parents. Ever since that day, my life truly had purpose.
Welcome to the art inside my mind.
I've studied with many nationally recognized photographers and I'm constantly investing in education to exceed my clients' expectations. This coming March I will be traveling to Bali, Indonesia to study with two of the best in the world, Erika & Lanny Mann of Two Mann Studios. I literally cannot wait!
I also hold a BA in Music Education & Special Education from Saint Ambrose University. I taught middle school for several years while building my photography business. I truly loved teaching, but nothing could hold me back from the powerful pull of what sets my soul on fire.
