I'm your typical girl-next door, but I have a goofy & sarcastic side to me too. I love making people laugh during my photo sessions to bring out their natural smiles. My photos are joyful, colorful with a mix of romance. I'm always ready for those amazing "in-between moments" that happen when people get comfortable in front of the camera, showing who they really are. I've been a wedding photographer for over 7 years now and I can't imagine doing anything else! It's the best job in the world!!
I have always loved attending weddings, but it wasn't until I photographed my first one that I saw the true magic they possess. The anticipation of a groom seeing his bride for the first time makes him weak in the knees. Grown men cry like babies when they walk their daughters down the aisle. People from around the globe gather together in one location to honor & celebrate two families becoming one. Now if that doesn't make you all warm & fuzzy, I don't know what will!
I have photographed so many wonderful people over the years. I thrive on the craziness that surrounds a wedding day because I love seeing everything come together in the end. Whether it rains, hails, or snows on your wedding day, we just roll with the punches and make adjustments as we go. My motto is, "Don't worry, we'll make it work!"
I tend to wear many different "hats" during a wedding in order to make the day as stress-free as possible for my clients. I help coordinate the timeline, pin on boutonnieres, bustle wedding dresses, hug grandmothers, and I have even been known to dance with guests at the reception... I can't help it, I LOVE TO DANCE!!
I'm married to my best friend (Pat) and I'm the mother of a high-energy toddler (Alex). They are my two reasons for living, breathing, and laughing every day. They keep me on my toes, give me gray hair, and melt my heart all at the same time. Family is so important to me and these two dudes have changed my life in the best way possible!
Most days you can find me playing monster trucks with my son or doing home-improvement projects with my hubby. But the remainder of my days are filled by photographing the most AMAZING couples on the biggest day of their lives!
I have so much passion for my job that sometimes I don't even feel like I'm working! I'm so honored when people ask me to photograph their wedding because it is a huge chapter in the story of their lives. When the cake has been eaten and the wedding dress is packed away, the best way to relive your special day is through these photos.
