I photograph adventurous souls and the wildly in love. What does that look like? It looks like you two cute things running around, laughing like crazy, and just being you. It looks like happiness and warmth, and it feels like lazy summer days stretching on forever. Life is unposed, love is wild, and memories are the only things we can take with us everywhere we go. We only get one life to live, and I get the opportunity to capture the emotions of the crazy-in-love.
If you are up for an adventure and are willing to listen to my lame puns while I happily third-wheel it on a small section of your love story, look no further. If you are looking for someone to capture not just what it looks like, but what it feels like, look no further. I am based in Phoenix, Arizona but just about anywhere is fair game. Contact me with your vision, and I'll help you bring it to life.
What an excellent question, and welcome to my small corner of the internet!
Listen, here's the straight talk fam. I focus on capturing unposed emotions and real moments. I tell visual stories through romantic imagery. I want to get to know you over your session and hear a little bit about your love story. I want you to let loose and have some fun. Photo sessions are not meant to be a chore, and I promise ours will feel like you're just kickin' it with your friends. I look forward to your inappropriate jokes, and if you're a bit slow to warm up to having someone run around with a camera in your face (what?! how dare you!), I will break through your icy exterior, do not doubt me! I'm only happy if, at the end of the day, you look at me and say, you know that was actually really fun.
In exchange for putting up with me, you will get photo memories that show what it felt like for just a brief second to be in your circle of happiness. This is what I work so hard for, and you'll be able to see it in your photos. I'm going to be honest, there are other photographers out there, and there will always be someone who will do it for less money. Genuine emotions, warmth, and good vibes are what I bring to the table, so that is what you are investing in when you work with me. I would be honored to capture these moments for you.
Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. Iced coffee addict (true life - if it's not iced, I won't drink it). Dog mom to a spoiled pit bull. Super married to my best friend. Lover of travel, new restaurants, and videos of baby animals.
In the irony of all ironies, I don't like being in front of a camera and am notoriously awkward when one is pointed my way. That being said, next to this section (or below if you're reading on a phone) is a very rare photo of my husband and I when I forced him to take holiday pictures with a self timer. Good times were had all around.
Photography is my artistic form of expression, and I have loved it ever since I discovered my calling. The best part of this job is all of the incredible people I get to meet and connect with. It makes the world feel just a little bit smaller and friendlier.
I do what I do so that twenty years from now, you can look back at your photographs and say, yes, that was us, all of it -- the craziness, the laughter, the love. So get at me with your love stories, and let's go take some pictures!
