Getting the perfect shot doesn’t have to be

awkward.

Don’t know what to do with your hands? When to laugh? Where to step?

That’s okay – just enjoy the moment!

Posed photos can feel stiff and awkward. That’s why I make sure you’re relaxed, comfortable, and (arguably the most important) having fun!

Your wedding is
Why not frame it?

beautiful.

You could say I was born with a camera in my hand.

You could say it – it wouldn’t be true. But my passion makes it feel that way.

Growing up my parents and 6 siblings were my first photography subjects. They never truly wanted to be photographed (all the time) but would humor me occasionally. Now grown and in different stages of life – grandparents, married, parents, single – they are so grateful for the captured memories.

Taking these moments and holding them in my hand – that has fueled my passion as a photographer.

Oh, my word!

Did we just become best friends?

I am a Virginia native and CNU graduate (go captains!). Having recently moved back to Hampton Roads, I live in the Newport News area with my amazing roommate. I spend my days with my equally amazing boyfriend, church family, and chasing down the next cup of coffee.

Just for you – I’ll put down the cup and pick up the camera.

(psssst. That’s a big deal!)
