At first glance I take pretty pictures, of pretty things, in pretty places...
Making images to look back on when the days are long and life is much more complicated than it is right now. It’s about making heirlooms that will be passed down to future generations, contributing to the heritage of your family that feel completely and totally YOU--the way you bat your eye lashes at him across the table, the way he touches the small of your back, and the undeniable smile you get as you slowly pull away from eachother after a kiss that lingered just a little too long. I consider myself a professional, sneaky, photo ninja that savors this good stuff for you, FOREVER!
I don't cater to one particular style of wedding. I photograph everything from black tie affairs to backyard intimate gatherings. I don't like to shoot the same thing over and over so I welcome variety. Below, you will find large galleries showcasing different locations, styles, and personalities of couples I've worked with!
Amara & Brian
Lindsay & Kyle
Elizabeth & Kevin
Stephanie & Chris
Rest assured, you will get plenty of those traditional moments, but you’re going to get so much more than that. You may worry that you can’t be as happy or as beautiful as the other lovebirds you see around here. But I wish you knew that these are very normal, everyday, camera shy humans. The only thing you need is to love your person fiercely & be willing to get a little cuddly, I will do the rest. Real couples are my jam. Everyone gets out of the car at their engagement sessions telling me they stink at this, they look so awkward in photos, and usually mumble something about some physical attribute that they don’t like. I promise that if you can love & snuggle your person, I can make images you adore.

Because we take a limited amount of weddings per year, WE love getting to know our potential couples to ensure that we are a good fit for each other. It's our goal to serve every client with our whole hearts. THEREFORE, we CANNOT ACCEPT EVERY INQUIRY. Between myself + Susie, we offer a variety of investment collections to suit a variety of weddings and budgets. Just reach out to chat more!
I married my high school sweetheart when I was 20. We got married at a winery and were one of the few who couldn’t drink at our own wedding! We’ve been married for 6 years + have TWO SWEET BABES.
I’ve been known to eat a WHOLE WATERMELON in one sitting
I cry when I’m either really happy or really sad (have ya seen Kristen Bell’s interview on Ellen about sloths? It me.)
When I’m not taking pictures I’m leading high school girls at my church’s youth group + dabbling in calligraphy
I was born in Southern California and later lived in Hawaii & Florida. I always told myself I would live within walking distance of the beach when I grew up and yet here I am in Central PA, surrounded by cows.
I have a degree in nursing and then the Lord divinely & with overwhelming kindness wrecked that plan & led me to photography. I’m forever thankful.
