why I am passionate about your wedding photography.

Back in 2011, my husband and I eloped on a very cold December morning. While our plan was to elope and let the family know afterward, it's not necessarily how it all went down.

 

My sister caught wind of what we were doing after I asked her to do my makeup. After she found out what we were planning on doing, she insisted on being there, and I thank God to this day she did because she brought a camera with her. Back then I wasn't thinking of photos.

The handful of photographs we have from that day is only because my sister forced herself to attend our elopement! A handful of photos that I treasure and look at every single wedding anniversary.

 

My personal wedding story is why I am so passionate about capturing wedding memories for my couples. Couples that value the importance of having photos to feel, reminisce over, and pass on to generations to come. 

Our girls weren't around to see my husband and I get married, but they do get to see that special day in the photos we treasure, and display in our home.

 

And should the day come when our girls have children of their own, they will be able to share our wedding day with our grandchildren. How cool is that?! It gives me goosebumps to think about it!

If I were not a photographer, I would be an Interior Designer. I love home interiors and am always thinking of ways to make a home feel like a place you always want to be, no matter what.

Things that make me happy: working out, riding my bicycle, working in my garden, fresh-cut flowers on the kitchen table, being a kid with my kids, date nights with my husband, and road trips. 

Things that make me unhappy: no cream in my coffee.
