Calling Virginia home and after marrying my husband Christopher, we settled in beautiful Staunton, Virginia where we are raising our beautiful daughter and our two pups, Penny and Wallace.
I've always had a penchant for travel and cooking . I feel so lucky to have a job that allows me to be creative and explore my boundaries while capturing one of the most important days of a couple's lives. Your wedding day.
My love for photography has brought me everywhere from the beaches of Savannah to the mountains out West and beyond. But regardless of where I go, the Blue Ridge Mountains will always be my home. I always return back to the beauty of Virginia.
As a creative, I see BEAUTY in the everyday
Photography chose me when I was studying music at VCU and took a photography class on a whim. I became obsessed with the craft and spent most of my time taking black and white photos and watching the magic unfold as the images developed in front of my eyes in the darkroom.
Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them.
Even with it's ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can't wait to create images to show that!
believe in honest, authentic moments. In the kinds of images that remind you of the love that can be found in the simplest moments together. I believe in images that are made to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. Your legacy crafted with love for love.

The first time my dad saw my mom, he said she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen in his life. When he proposed he drove from Washington State to Virginia in three days driving straight through. A little crazy? Yes, but it worked. It's been 54 years and they're still going strong.
My parents have always been a beautiful example of love, intimacy and marriage. They gave me the foundation that I am building my own marriage and family on. Photos remind us of the strength, courage and hope that reside in all of us the way few other things can.
