I’ve been looking forward to Mel and George’s wedding for what feels like forever, and for so many reasons, I know it’ll be a day I never forget!! It’s not often I get asked to be a photographer AND a bridesmaid, and doing double duty along with my associate photography team was the biggest honor […]

Love at first sight is real, and Ashlyn and Connor’s story is proof. These two met while waiting in line to pay parking citations, of all things! They didn’t exchange more than a few words that day, but both were students at Georgia Southern and kept crossing paths. Finally they decided to get to know […]

There are benefits to braving the Chicago cold… it’s photos like these!! Cassidy and Luke are my actual heroes for rolling in the snow and frolicking along the lake in negative degree temps. Our fingers and toes may have gone numb, but the pictures were definitely worth it!! These two always knew they were each […]

Tiffany and Dillon’s wedding at Redemption Ranch just outside St. Louis was gorgeous down to every last detail… and what else would you expect when a wedding photographer gets married herself??

One of the questions I get asked most often is what types of cameras and lenses I use, and which are my favorites. This is such a tough one to answer, because it typically depends on what I’m shooting, and in reality I love ALL my Canon gear!! Today I thought I’d do a little breakdown of what comes with me to every wedding.

New year… same pandemic! Since our houses are where we spend so much of our time these days, I wanted to share a few ways I’ve improved my wellness at home over the past year. If you’re like me, new routines can sometimes feel unattainable or unrealistic. These few have been manageable for me – I hope they might be helpful for you, too!

It’s official… microweddings are my new favorite thing. They are intimate, meaningful, and can be just as beautiful as big weddings! Laura and Alex’s day was proof of that. They had originally planned on a 200+ person affair in Laura’s hometown, but with Covid risks they knew keeping their community safe was more important than […]
