Hello - it's me

If you are here I can only presume it's because you want to learn more about me. Or you've clicked on this page by accident...but I'm going to assume it's because you want to learn more about me, the human taking your photos.

Well for starters, I'm an adventurous, 20-something year old from Chattanooga, Tennessee that recently graduated with a degree in Outdoor Recreation, Sports and Tourism Management from UTC. I love to travel and recently spent a month traveling to Washington, South Carolina and Hawaii! I even did some international travel for the first time and now I have a serious travel bug. I'm also a big fan of all things nature if you couldn't tell by my choice of college studies. The outdoors are pretty much my favorite and when I'm not inside editing photos you can probably find me somewhere outside exploring trails looking for the perfect elopement location, or doing outdoor activities with my friends. My goal is to not only be a photographer, but a friend. To root for you and your love even if nobody else is. To help you have a wedding day that is entirely your own, whether that’s a wedding with 25 of your closest friends and family or just you and your person in a Taco Bell parking lot. Your day, your way is my motto.

If you are looking for a photographer to capture your special day anywhere in the world (the more unique the better), a photographer that is willing to go on adventures to find the perfect location for your elopement, I'm ya girl. If safety is a concern, I'm also a certified Wilderness First Responder so I can totally splint your leg with sticks if needed. Jokes, aside, the safety of my clients is a top priority.

Speaking of jokes, if you hadn't already noticed, sarcasm and joking around are my main two methods of communication. If you decide to have your wedding photos taken by me, I can promise you I will be joking around and trying to make you laugh a lot. You will likely just end up laughing at how dumb my humor is, but hey whatever works right?

Let's hang out and take some pictures!
