On the surface, I am a certifiable goofball who is fanatical about her dogs, Crossfit and the Michigan Wolverines. Orange tic tacs, Crocs and lululemon leggings are my love language and if I have all three at once I know it will be a good day. I thrive in authentic + meaningful relationships, and a huge part of why I love what I do is that it allows for me to create strong bonds with the couples I serve. When I show up for your session or wedding day, I want to feel like a trusted friend, rather than a vendor.
I love love stories. I am recently married myself, and I'm still trying to figure out how to love and what it means to intersect my life with another. It's a complicated and beautiful journey, but one that I am deeply grateful to be on.
Being in an interracial relationship paired with complex family backgrounds, planning a wedding in a “one size fits all” industry felt isolating. It was at that point that I knew I wanted to work with folks who felt similarly, and reassure them that while their journey of planning a wedding may be full of complexity, it will still be full of beauty and joy as well.
It's no secret that the wedding industry promotes a specific image of what you and your wedding day should look like. I’ve made it my mission to reassure my couples that their wedding, family and love have no mold to fit with me. Whether your story is complex or simple, joy-filled or laced with grief, know that you are welcome here.
Through my images, I want you to feel known and appreciated by documenting real moments that matter - it is my priority to show you the beauty and worth of your story this way.
It's about paying respect to the full experience of what it means to be alive. It’s about honoring the light and the dark, the good times, and the hard ones too. I'm drawn to work with couples who see how profound it is to open yourself to love.
I love working with those who have not only laughed but have cried together and the ones who are acutely aware of how temporary the lives we lead are.
One day, our photographs will be evidence of a life well-lived. It is an honor to preserve a part of your unique existence.
