I'm a wedding photographer for couples who are stoked not just about their wedding day, but also about the rest of their life together as husband and wife. I live in St. Louis, but I have an enormous passion for traveling this big, beautiful world. I absolutely love capturing laughter and working with couples who are filled to the brim with joy and love for life and each other!

A bit about me: first (and most importantly), Jesus is my “why”. He fills me with purpose and ignites my dreams; I can wholeheartedly say that my life is a beautiful adventure because He leads the way. A few other random tidbits… tacos and sushi are my jam, but I don’t turn down hardly any food, let's be real. ;) My heart feels most at home on the west coast, and I have a tendency to buy plane tickets on the fly! I believe everyday should start with a good cup of coffee (and maybe one in the afternoon too). I love adventure and believe in investing in memories instead of things, which is why being a wedding photographer is my favorite. 

You put so much heart and effort into the details of your wedding, but at the end of the day, you only walk away with your best friend by your side and your wedding images. These are the photos you will pull out and show your kids and grandkids one day… to show them just how much you loved one another on day one… and how much more you love each other on year fifty.
