I am a wife, dog mom, and creative entrepreneur. I married my high school sweetheart in 2019, and, during our first year of marriage, we dreamed of moving South to a place with beautiful scenery and salty ocean air. We are now blessed to get to spend parts of our year in both Charleston, SC and the Outer Banks of North Carolina! Photography has taken me to the Smoky Mountains, Rural Indiana, Eastern North Carolina, and the Lowcountry, and I consider it such a privilege to creatively capture love stories and other milestones for my clients.
I would rather collect seaglass and shells than material possessions any day. I have an affinity for bright colors but always prefer blue over pink. I'm someone who adores traveling to new destinations, but is also just as happy snuggled up with her husband and pups for a cozy night in. My day hasn't started if I haven't had my cup of iced coffee and a good vegan breakfast, and The Office is my favorite background noise to play when I'm working.
I have been drawn to the ocean for as long as I can remember. It is the place that I feel most at peace, most creative, and most in awe of my Creator.
Photography and the beach have always gone hand in hand for me. It is where I traveled 10 hours with a stranger-turned-lifelong-friend for my senior photo session, and it was on that trip I began exploring the potential of professional photography. It is where I got get married because I wanted the memories of that day to be captured on the water and in the salt air.
Now, as a photographer, my passion has come full circle and is so rewarding to capture images for my clients with the most stunning and glowing beach backdrops!
Because let's be honest, nobody likes stiff photos with forced smiles and awkward posing.
By focusing on the full client experience and implementing my simplified posing system, I am able to create both candid and traditional images that truly capture each client's personality and style.
So whether it means popping champagne and confetti cannons, getting up before the sun to shoot in front of an ocean sunrise, or traveling for a destination shoot, I will create a photography experience that you can't help but rave about!
We can all agree that photography is not just about photos, right?
When I decided to pursue photography, I knew that it would take more than learning to use my camera. So I invested in extensive education on how to create an exceptional and memorable experience for my clients.
