At heart, I am a nature-loving minimalist. Having spent my childhood living in a cabin in the woods of Sainte Genevieve, I developed a deep appreciation for and a lasting connection to the natural world and the skies above. I have always felt at home in the great outdoors.
While I now live in the city, I long for those endless, clear night skies, simple aesthetics and the enchanting, lush forests of the Missouri countryside. After moving to Saint Louis to earn a degree in International Business, I opened my photography business in 2014.
When I’m not photographing weddings and families, I spend a lot of time reading non-fiction, especially articles relating to photography and travel. I enjoy spending my free time sipping on Nespresso lattes, watching documentaries, hanging out with my boyfriend and two cats, and adventuring outdoors to photograph Missouri’s wild and diverse beauty.
I truly believe that establishing a closer connection with my wedding clients is a key ingredient to creating genuine, emotional storytelling. Photographs are one of the few remaining tangible artifacts from your wedding. Being able to reconnect to those emotions through photography will bring you back to that special place in time, over and over again.
Whether you and your guests are in a place of reverence or jubilant celebration, it is my passion to capture those moments in a personal way. While some elements of photography can be subjective – the emotional connections are what will ultimately prevail through time. When crafting someone’s story, I believe capturing the details and surroundings are very important. I spend a lot of time photographing details, venue and architectural images, along with the smaller details that are often overlooked, but provide context and personalization to a wedding day.
