I'm a Charleston-based photographer who will go anywhere Yes, I really mean ANYWHERE, for photos!
My passion is capturing the love, emotion and raw moments of a wedding day, but I also love capturing anything and everything in between! From pets, to sports, events, traveling! Every person, animal, place, is a new and unique challenge, because I'm not just trying to capture a good photograph... I'm capturing the essence of the soul, or the purity of the moment.
I was finishing up my accounting degree at USC, making good grades, but not excited about my career path. I decided that I would use my business skills to turn my hobby (and my minor) into by own business!
I took my camera everywhere I could, taking pictures of anything and everything. I became an associate wedding photographer under the direction and guidance of another talented photographer. Weddings quickly became my passion. I started as a second shooter, and worked my way up to lead wedding photographer gaining invaluable experience in the wedding industry. Since then I have photographed over 130 weddings!
My absolute favorite thing about my career is being able to travel to capture weddings! There is just something so intimate and romantic about a destination wedding! Plus, I'm all about adventure and experiencing new people and places! So far I've had the pleasure of capturing weddings in North Carolina, Texas, and Colorado!
My other favorite part about my career is that I get to know people from all walks of life on a personal level. I get to capture their deepest loves, and passions, and events on some of the biggest days of their lives. I love seeing their families grow and seeing their journeys unfold from the day they get engaged to the day they have children and more. I consider myself lucky to be able to make these moments last a lifetime for them.
I consider myself so lucky to have found a career that brings me so much joy! If you love traveling, animals, art, and adventures, you’ve come to the right place!
in the meantime...
Always live life to the fullest!
I can tell you that I”m a light-hearted individual who will jump at the chance to go anywhere to try new things! I’m always smiling and I will try almost anything once!
I believe that traveling opens your mind and heart to different perspectives and I encourage everyone to open their minds to those encounters, savor them, remember them and learn from them.
I try to see the positive in everything, then grow from the experience. I love animals, my family, my friends, traveling, and dancing. My happy place is the beach, specifically, The Sands Beach in Port Royal, SC, where I would think through any issue by letting my mind wonder while hunting for sharks teeth. (I have a jar of sharks teeth I’ve collected over the years.)
I believe that everything happens for a reason, and once you’re at peace with that, you can grow from any experience life throws at you.
Thats my outlook on life, which is important to address because it directly translates to my outlook and my goals when it comes to capturing weddings and portraits.
For me, It’s not just about clicking a button and getting to the end result, I want you to feel like part of my family from the moment we first sit down and talk over coffee.
I want you to not only feel connected to my artistic style of photography, but to me as a person. I want you to feel comfortable telling me about your life, your passions, your secrets, your guilty pleasures. I want to know you as a person, because that is the soul I set out to capture with every click of the shutter!
My overall goal is that I see you and your family grow from here on out and I get to capture the biggest moments of your lives together!
If you want to remember the raw emotion, not just the smile, but how you felt in that moment. Let me buy you a cup of coffee, and let’s talk.
"What's your photography style?" "Do you use flash?" "What will you wear?"
