I can't wait to meet you. From getting to know you, documenting important moments to the delivery of your images, I’m all in.
I focus on creating photographs with real emotion, true color and editing free from industry trends to ensure you and your family will love your images decades from now.
You want a fun third wheel documenting what the day feels like and your true personalities. Couples say they love how comfortable and relaxed I make them feel, I instinctively know where to be at all times, that I capture humanity empathetically and that it's clear I love what I do. A typical day with me-- your bouquet and sunglasses in the back seat of my car, a cooler full of drinks, our muddy or sandy shoes from running around in the mountains or on the beach and driving home in a car that looks like the scene of a serious party.
You want to relive all the hilarious, emotional and behind the scenes moments through your photos. I work primarily in the style of a photojournalist and also love creative portraiture. Your wedding day is about you and your marriage, not me. I try to be invisible and keep a low profile. If you prefer everything captured naturally as it happens - contact me.
You want an artist documenting your day. I have a BFA and MFA in fine art photography and started my career in 2011 in Chicago. I relocated back to my home in East Tennessee in 2014 and have photographed 250+ weddings and counting. I would love to use my experience to create artistic and joyful work with you. I got married in 2019 and we live with our Australian Shepherd Jessie in a cabin in a remote area of the Smoky Mountains that borders the National Park.
I am honored to be one of 250 photographers in the world to be named a 2019 nominee for Rangefinder's 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography, a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and their Artistic Guild, a Green Wedding Shoes preferred artist, an Offbeat Bride vendor, an H&H Weddings LGBTQ+ wedding pro and more.
Contact me for sessions in East Tennessee or here, there and everywhere. I travel frequently for weddings and am ready to document you wherever you go!
I am an authorized photographer permitted to shoot within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I love photographing weddings, destination weddings, elopements, engagements, family sessions and more. Ask me about other services you're interested in. Say hello anytime, I’d love to hear from you!
THANKS FOR THE LOVE!
