For Photographers

When Chris and Martha got engaged, like literally minutes later, we started talking about me photographing their wedding. Soon there after, Martha asked me to be a bridesmaid. I was obviously honored in both aspects, but we needed to talk about whether it was reasonable to do both. After a long and honest conversation about […]


2019 Behind the Scenes

December 31, 2019

It’s time for one of my favorite posts of the year!! I love it so much because it sheds a little light on what it’s really like working with me, and what each of these days felt like from my perspective. It shows how much I smile behind the camera (sometimes my face gets tired) […]

I had a moment with a fellow photographer friend of mine, when she said that she found an amazing album company. I asked why she loved it so much, and she’s said “well, it’s just so my brand.” I realized, that I was having a hard time making decisions for my clients because not only did I really not know what my brand was, but that it wasn’t what I liked. I made a decision at that point to change my brand to match the most important creative part of my business, me.
