I was born in Texas, spent time in North Carolina as a child and grew up in the southern (home of sweet tea!) city of Memphis, Tennessee. Before launching myself full force into this beautiful business, I spend 10 ish years in the aviation industry working for major carriers U.S. Airways and United Airlines. I'm pretty much built to travel!
My love for photography has brought me everywhere from the cliffs of Santorini, Greece to the mountains in Southern California. But regardless of where I travel, the beautiful skyline of Chicago is where I call home.
I find BEAUTY in the details and the bigger picture.
One of my favorite things to get from my couples is photos of their beautiful day on their walls. Prints are so valuable in telling your life story.
I truly adore each and every couple I get to photograph. There is so much in store for 2024 and beyond! Don’t miss out on any of the gorgeous couples, silly moments, and behind the scenes!

I love clean skin tones, and true color, so your images are timeless. I am BIG on attention to detail, keeping things fun and relaxed, and being your number one through this journey.
I take a COLORFUL approach to my work.

I LOVE being with my clients on one of the most important days of their lives. I love seeing your connection get more profound with each glance, dance, laugh, conversation, and whatever other moments you share together. You can rest assured knowing I have a history of capturing those moments not just between the two of you but your friends and family who have come to celebrate this beginning journey.
We will laugh, cry and have an AMAZING time. At the end of the day, you'll be married and be able to look back at this incredible day with your carefully curated heirloom album and beautiful prints gracing your home.
