I live in Belton, TX with my husband of 11 years, Jereme, and our full-of-life 6-year-old, Penelepe.
Most days you can find me chasing our 6-year-old daughter while drinking my third cup of coffee. I'm known for the goofy girl who doesn't take herself too seriously. I believe that road trips are good for the soul, laughter is truly the best medicine, and you can never give too many kisses.
I’ve always had a love for photography, but my passion for capturing wedding days didn’t come until after I had my own wedding to the love of my life in 2010. Being able to document one of the biggest days of your life; the anticipation before walking down the aisle, expressing your love in front of your favorite people, your first dance as husband and wife, the stolen kisses between you two as your guest enjoy dancing the night away. Documenting love stories is what drives my soul.
I'd love to meet you and chat about capturing the precious moments, which you and your family can cherish for generations.
I'm a wedding photographer based out of Austin, TX and the greater hill country area, serving fun, joyful couples madly in love.
I'm a born and raised Austinite. In 2018, my husband and I moved back to our home state from Washington, D.C. We lived there for 5 years, and it feels so good to be back! We've also lived in New York and Colorado.
I shot my first wedding in 2011, and immediately fell in love.
I get super excited when I get certain shots on your session or wedding day. That comes with making weird noises, happy dances, and lots of talking with my hands.
I cry at almost every wedding I attend. Especially during the father-daughter dances, and the memorable speeches. I'm such a sap!
I'd love to chat and get to know you better! Fill out the contact sheet, or feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
