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, warm woolen knits, desolate lakes, and long mountain hikes -- these are a few of my favorite things. I drink my coffee black. The smell & sound of a good campfire calms my soul. I prefer rocky, foggy coasts over sunny, hot, sandy beaches. Tacos, smoothie bowls, and dessert are my love language. I collect local handmade yarn whenever I visit a new place & love to weave + knit in my free time. Dried plants + flowers fascinate me, and if I wasn’t a photographer, I would probably be a florist. I am an avid hiker, and travel fuels my spirit + creativity most. The outdoors inspire me like no other, and I strive to incorporate the natural world into my work as much as possible!
I am a wedding, elopement, 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. Photography is more than just a snapshot of life; it serves as a visual bookmark and I 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 babe cooking, I'll be there to capture it all. & I'll be there for YOU.
If you would like me to just show up, snap some photos, and head out, I don't think we are the best fit. Which is TOTALLY fine. I want you to find the perfect photographer that fits all of your wants + needs. 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 SO hard. 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.
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, adventure session, 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.
