I am a daughter of a Marine, one of three sisters, and a follower of Christ.
Fresh cut wildflowers, small town coffee shops, black and white photos, and forgotten cassette tapes. Freckled round faces, foggy cool mornings, warm woolen knits, desolate lakes, and long mountain hikes -- these are a few of my favorite things. I am a red-headed weaver, plant-presser, gallivanter, & runner. I love a good historical drama, and will never say no to a taco or smoothie bowl date. The outdoors inspires me like no other, and I absolutely love incorporating the natural environment into my work.
I am an untraditional wedding, elopement, family, and couple photographer based out of Richmond, VA, but I will happily travel anywhere your love takes us. I find great joy in documenting human emotion and expression through photography, and strive to produce photos that take you back to how you felt during that specific moment -- integrating all of the sweet anomalies and imperfections. Whether you are eloping on the top of a mountain, planning an intimate brunch backyard ceremony, or just want some in-home lifestyle moments captured of you & your person cooking, I'll be there to capture it all. & I'll be there for YOU.
Creating long lasting friendships with my clients is a core value in my life & in my work. Friendship is something I cherish deeply, and also makes capturing + enjoying your epic day that much more special. Being vulnerable and showing REAL emotion in front of a camera can be intimidating + scary. I want to make this as easy/comfortable as possible while also creating an experience for the two of you to hold onto years from now. That being said, I also want you to find the perfect photographer that fits all of your wants + needs, and if that means we don't sound like the best fit, then that is A-okay.
I would absolutely love the opportunity to get to know you and capture your story. & HECK YES I travel! National Parks are my jam, so if your wedding, engagement/anniversary session, vow renewal, or elopement takes us to the Redwood Forest, a rocky beach off the Oregon coast, or to the Appalachian mountains, you will have a forever friend.
Let's grab some coffee, get to know each other, & create something wonderful together.
