who I am
photographer of love + life | wife + mother | adventurer
I’m a full time wedding photographer, adventurer, momma to the sweetest boys, Jackson and Jude and a lucky wife to an amazing and supportive husband, Chris. I love traveling, hanging with my 2 dogs, and doing pretty much anything that takes me outside. I love going out to eat and drinking craft beer. I also enjoying being a homebody, cuddling up with a good book and spending as much time as I can with my family here in sunny, St. Petersburg, FL. I’ve been a photographer for over 10 years now; I've gone through so many various paths, however, nothing quite resonated or felt more fulfilling to me than capturing love and life.
COMMUNICATION | advice giver | becoming friends | PROVIDING AN EXPERIENCE | more than just a vendor
It's way more than just showing up to your session or your wedding and clicking a button, just to go home and deliver you images with little emotion or feeling. From the first moment we begin to get to know each other to the moment I deliver your gallery we will be talking, A LOT. I'm all about communication and delivering the best experience to you that I possibly can. I am an open book to any questions you have, ideas you have dreamed up, and how I can assist in capturing the most genuine moments that make up your story.
I strongly believe that by creating a relationship with each other and becoming friends, I am able to better capture your story. I love getting to know your personalities, your quirks, what makes you, YOU! I am all about adventures, real moments, connections, less posing, more playing, finding what makes you and your other half laugh and being your most comfortable selves together.
How I work
creating meaningful imagery | LET LOOSE | embrace who you are | unposed
If traditional imagery and shot lists are your thing, we might not be the best fit. Your love is one of a kind and your photos should reflect that. My ideal client isn't scared to be themselves, I want your images to reflect who you are as a couple- whether it’s intimate, funny, or playful. I know being in front of the camera can be a little intimidating, so we can do whatever it is you need to let loose and relax- whether its sharing a bottle of wine beforehand, to bringing a boom box and putting on your favorite tunes throughout your session ( I have a perfect, tiny, waterproof one we can use with bluetooth access!) Rather than pose you, I document and help guide the real moments that you and your love share.
On your wedding day, I'll be there to calm you if you need, attempt really terrible jokes if that's what it takes to make you laugh and lend an extra hand if something goes awry. Embrace every moment big, small, or unplanned, because they all go by so fast and remember, that at the end of the day, you are marrying the love of your life.
Share your story with me and let's create some beautiful memories together.
