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 among the great outdoors and am most at peace when I am lost in nature.
After moving to Saint Louis to earn a degree in International Business, I opened my photography business in 2014. While I now live in the city, I long for those endless and clear night skies, simple aesthetics and the enchanting, lush forests of the Missouri countryside.
When I’m not photographing weddings and families, I spend a lot of time reading non-fiction, especially articles relating to photography, interior design and travel. I make time for exploratory travel on a (usually) quarterly-basis. We love to travel and see new places, whether it be in our own state of Missouri or elsewhere, and I enjoy writing about it! I enjoy spending my free time sipping on Nespresso lattes, watching documentaries, hanging out with my boyfriend and two cats, never missing Taco Tuesday, and adventuring outdoors to photograph Missouri’s wild and diverse beauty.
My ideal clients are people that are creative & down to earth, value photography as an art-form, have a love for family and an appreciation for the natural world. I try not to take myself too seriously, and prefer to be open, honest and straight-forward in my relationships with people.
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.
When telling someone’s story, I believe capturing the details and surroundings are very important. I will spend time photographing venue and architectural images along with the smaller details that are often overlooked, but provide context and personalization to a wedding day. Whether you and your guests are in a place of reverence or jubilant celebration, I want 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.
