You believe in your story. I surrender to it. Capture it. And hand it back to you in a way you can remember forever.

You're about to embark on the most wonderful of adventures. Because you're here that tells me you value epic, mind-blowing photography. Well done!

I'm fortunate, and sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how much I love what I do. I illustrate every story you trust me with.

Incredible photographs result from a trusted relationship between us. This comes from a friendship, and from time invested in getting to know you, and why you have chosen the different elements that will make up your wedding day. Think of me as a visual biographer of sorts, a narrator, telling your story through the images of your day.

I want you to be blown away by how beautiful you really are, by how beautiful I see you to be.

Lets get started!

+ you are beautiful

Senior Photography::Ellie

When she was two, she loved to brush hair. My hair was long, easy to brush, so I was the lucky one when visiting her house. No one else but Ellie would sit for time on end just brushing and brushing. I would be completely relaxed by the time she grew tired of playing “hair”.

Fast-forward. No, r-e-a-l-l y fast-forward. Her gentle brush strokes have turned into power hits for the Centerville High School volleyball team. She is no longer a quiet little girl. She can be LOUD. Being a part of the team has self admittedly made Ellie a different person. She feels more responsible. “It made me realize that in life, you’re not always going to have the best and you might not always get what you want,” she stated.

I’ve always paired volleyball with Ellie in my mind. But she goes much deeper. Her favorite high school memory is peer helping camp during her junior and senior year. She says it’s a very emotional time. People let down their guard and you learn a lot about each other; how good or bad some people really have it. And if that’s not impressive enough, talk with her about her stance on life. “I am most passionate about life in general. It’s important to live your life to the fullest every single day because you never know when it might end or when it could be terribly disrupted,” Ellie says.

Ellie’s as fun as she is wise for her years. “One thing I want people to know about me is that I love to have fun!  (Check out this past preview) And I try to be nice to every single person. Life isn’t about what you do or what you look like, but who you are and how you act,” she exclaims.

I have no doubt she WILL go far!

Like what you see? Let's set up a time to talk!
