making memories that are everlasting is so important to me. there are not many people in this world that are lucky enough to do what they love. i'm glad i have the opportunity to do what i love. i can sit here and tell you how much i love my family, my son, my husband, hot summer nights, good make-up, coffee, and a super glazed donut....i'm just all about keeping it fun and real. i crack jokes, i get muddy, i'll step in puddles, and i'll lay on the ground. as long as i'm getting a an amazing shot...i'm all about it. i'll try to make you laugh, i'll cry at your weddings, and when you exchange your vows, it's like i'm a part of your family sitting smiling and enjoying the happiest day of your life. i'm so passionate about my work, it's not work, it's fun. adventure. i'm not afraid to be awesome. sometimes being weird and different is good. when i think i'm working hard, i always keep in mind that there is someone else working harder, so i always try to be myself and know my stuff. i want to be creatively satisfied, and having fun is such an important part of that for me. to be able to capture the most greatest moments....it's so timeless. you'll have them forever. all those wonderful memories. all of my clients impact me to become better. they become more than clients. they become friends. it is not your job to remember me. It is my obligation and responsibility to make sure you don't have the chance to forget me. thats the impact that i want to have on you. lets meet up...have coffee...maybe a glazed donut. let me make some everlasting memories for you.
Memories fade, but I feel they never fade when you hire a professional wedding photographer. It's one day that is so important. It's essential to have a professional there to capture the memories so you can re-live them.

Wedding photography is an investment in your memories, and when you look at it this way, the cost is really secondary. And in case you’re not convinced, let’s take a look at some numbers:
Let’s say you pay $5000 for your wedding and engagement photography – which is a high number. Most people will probably spend more like $2,000-$4000. But, for this, let’s assume $5,000.
If you average that cost out over 50 years, it’s $100/year, or $8.33 per month, or $0.25 per day. And that’s only for one person. If you assume both the bride and groom are contributing to the cost, it’s $0.12 per day per person. Basically, if you ask someone for a quarter every day for the rest of your life, you can pay for your wedding photos. It’s just a matter of priorities. And if photos aren’t a priority for you, that’s totally cool. But, if they are, treat them that way.
It could be your vision of the day you want that you can look back on and remember. I will keep you calm and focused...and I'm pretty fun to hang out with...I mean, we do spend a lot of time together.

When you pay for professional photography you are investing money into high quality images. The goal of the session is to create candid moments that you are going to want to display in your home and share with your family and friends. They are going to be images that you don't want to leave on a flash drive, in a drawer, or lost in a folder on your computer. These are images that should be up on display because they best represent you, your personalities, or an accomplishment in your life.
We spend a great deal of time and money on our living spaces, so it's only right to finish them off with some incredible artwork!
I specialize mostly in natural light photography, but I love a beautiful sunset which offer some fill flash photography.
