A smell that feels like Sunday morning around the breakfast table with family. I grew up moving every two or three years because my dad was a Marine, and have continued that adventurous family tradition by marrying a sailor named Cody.
Moving so often means that home has always been about people instead of physical comfort zones. It’s a place where you feel seen and known, and the dogs run to meet you at the door. After getting into Social Work in college, I realized that my superpower is helping people feel at home no matter where we are.
As I led group therapy meetings similar to AA, I felt most alive making all types of people feel comfortable being themselves and forming a space to live in the vulnerable moments. That feeling lives on through wedding days as I create a playful experience intuitively customized so that you can effortlessly be yourself.
what is it like to work with me?
I'm big into the idea of grown up magic - that there are some things in life that we connect with emotionally but can't fully explain.
While I love digging into tarot and astrology, on wedding days I lean into my intuition to capture the unspoken elements in the room.
Understanding those subtleties allows me to communicate what your day truly felt like, especially the meaningful moments that are hard to put into words.
My husband’s career in the military will have him deploy for months and travel all over the country, so I keep a secret folder in my phone of the big "us" moments and everyday selfies that he and I take of our Great Dane family to feel like home again when we're apart.
In the modern age, with family and friends living all over the world, sometimes photos and voicemails are all we have to hang on to. I want to make sure the photos that I take will last for generations.
As a true Aquarius, I live to express my individuality through unique clothing and makeup. (I'm still rocking my signature dark lipstick under my mask!)
When Cody and I were planning our wedding, it was really important that the style of the day aligned with our personal taste and really represented our relationship together.
Before your wedding day, I take the time to understand you and your relationship dynamic to ensure magazine-worthy images that represent the real you and match your vision of the day.
that's exactly what I need!
I’m the queen of making sure that your photos reflect your partnership and the ambience of your wedding day.
Lucky for you: I’m also a lot of fun. 😉
