I'm a wedding photographer for couples who are stoked not just about their wedding day, but the rest of their life together as husband and wife. I adore my job and absolutely love working with couples who are filled to the brim with joy and love for life and each other! I live in St. Louis, but ask any of my friends and they’ll tell you half the time I’ve never home. I have an enormous passion for traveling this big, beautiful world - so in my free time you can probably find me hunting for cheap plane tickets somewhere new. ;)

A few other tidbits 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 one heck of a grand adventure because He leads the way. I teach a bible study at a women’s prison every week and it’s one of the most incredible parts of my life. I believe that stories are powerful and one of the greatest ways you can impact others is through your own. Tacos and sushi are my jam, but I don’t turn down hardly any food, let's be real. ;) I believe every day should start with a good cup of coffee (and maybe one in the afternoon too). When all of my family is home together, it’s like a live comedy show a the dinner table and it’s the best. The Myers-Briggs personality test is my love language (ENTJ heyyy) and I believe in investing in memories and experiences instead of things, which is why being a wedding photographer is my favorite.
