On your (wedding, elopement, session) day I’m your biggest supporter and there to make sure your comfy, having fun, and really living in the moment. Thats when I pick up the camera and start documenting the good stuff. Those high-on-life moments, the teary eyed or nostalgic moments, and that can’t contain your joy moments. Getting to chat with you and learning what make you both who you are from the beginning is what makes capturing your story effortless.
I started photography wayyy back in 2016 but started taking it really seriously in 2018. As of 2022 I do this full time, which is am absolute dream! You can often find me traveling or planning my next trip as I take on about half elopements and destinations weddings and half local Kansas City Weddings! I really love doing a bit of both. The flexibility this job offers me is one of my favorite perks.
Photography was something that I just picked up at a young age. Before I had a camera I was setting up stuffed animals and taking photos with my parents old phones. No but really-
The best things really do find you when you're not really looking for them. Photography was like that for me, It was a hobby for years then one day someone offered me some money to shoot their wedding and the rest was history.
Getting to share something that I am so passionate about with you is so endlessly rewarding. I'm so thankful to have such a fun creative career. Its defiantly a dream job for me.
On an ideal day, I would wake up early make myself some coffee and watch the sunrise. I'd probably head to the gym, get some work done and hang out with Noah (my boyfriend). I would do some cleaning in the afternoon, because I find it relaxing and throw on my favorite TV show, New Girl! To end the day, we would have some friends over for Mexican food and game night!
On a deeper level of things, I am really interested in self-growth and development too! I think if I wasn't a photographer my career path would have leaned towards being a life coach or some sort of teacher! Either way, I would have always wanted to be self employed!
It's impossible to list my favorite things and not put photography up there though, I have always had a camera in my hand and my phone is always running out of storage trying to keep up with all the moments I have documented and saved.
I find inspiration in everyday thing like most people. Photography has really changed my perspective on everyday life. I like to watch movies simply for new creative shot ideas. I drop pins on cool locations I see while driving. Writing down ideas after reading a scene in a book.
What really helps me tell your story though is getting to know you on a deeper level.
I love moving through the awkward 'hi, hello's' and into the detailed story of why you hate the state of Kentucky. I want to know your Sunday morning routine with your partner and why its important to you. I want to hear about what make you laugh and cry.
Why? Because all these little details help me get to know you and help me tell your story!
The day of your wedding, elopement or maybe just your session I'm in your corner ready to do what I can to make the day flow as easy as possible.
If you need me to run to grab some coffee on the way to the venue I got you! I almost always have backup dry shampoo, safety pins, umbrella, you name it- on hand too just in case! I want this day to be as carefree fun and relaxing as possible so you can focus on living in the moment!
She is not only an amazing photographer; she is kind, positive, affirming, and funny. She is so fun to work with!
We are a little shy and she made the experience so much fun and easy for us. We popped champagne and she even played our wedding dance song to get us in the mood.
She took the time to meet with me and my husband and understand who we are and what we wanted from our day. She made it easy, highlighted the love my husband and I feel for each other, and kept us laughing and excited for the next picture or location.
She has an eye for the in-betweens, capturing the most beautiful moments when you aren’t even aware the camera is on you. She’s the sweetest, too, and will make you feel so comfortable, guiding you into natural, beautiful poses for the camera!
