Midwest and Destination Wedding Photographer




I photographed my first wedding when I was a sophomore in high school (yup, you read that right). Years before, Sony Cybershot in hand, I fell in love with photography. A full hard drive later (sorry, Dad!), I saved to finally get the camera I had been dreaming of.
College came, I married my best friend (cue all the bubbly), graduated with an engineering degree and worked in the corporate world.

After a couple years of working full-time and still pursuing photography, I was convinced that a change was required. So, I decided to go all with where it all began - photography. With over 60 weddings that I’ve been trusted to photograph, they just keep getting sweeter and sweeter.

I Believe In…

Joy in every circumstance
The eye opening experience of travel
Chocolate chip cookies (yes and amen)
Knowing personally the people in front of my camera
Not worrying about things I can’t control
Hole in the wall restaurants
Marriage being deeper than just a wedding
Providing an experience beyond photos
Treating others as I would want to be treated
