I'm a wedding photographer / pro pep talker living in Portland, ore. 


hi there! i first have to say that everything i have is because of Jesus. he is the best part of my life. you will probably find me always talking about him. he is the reason i do this and the driving force behind why i do what i do.

i also have to say that i am married to jesse - my best best friend. he has been with me through the trenches of business owning and encourages me to keep going every single day. we had the most wonderful, calm, fun, and enjoyable wedding day almost four years ago and with that in mind, i strive and desire to give my couples the same experience that we did. 

there are a million photographers out there. but you're here -- reading this, and i am glad that you are. i'm not going to tell you that i am a photographer for adventurous couples because i want to be a photographer for all couples. the ones who like to sit at home and play wii bowling, but also enjoy a good adventure here and there. 

life isn't perfect, relationships can be messy, and social media isn't real life. i want to be the photographer that captures the real stuff. i want to be the photographer that lets you be yourself and doesn't force you to interact in a way that isn't how you normally would just to get a cute shot. i want to know you, because i want to capture you beautifully and well.
