why i love capturing love...
im sure you've been to so many photography websites by now AND YOU MUST BE wondering "how is this girl any different?"
... Well I’m a veil adjuster, a tide stick professional, a bouquet holder, a timekeeper, a family wrangler and finally, I bring the hype girl energy to keep you moving even when it feels impossible (those heels are cute but not your friend). When you hire me THAT'S what you’re getting! My goal is to do EVERYTHING I possibly can to make the day go smoother. Let me tell you, in the end, I’m not just another vendor who showed up, I'm your FRIEND.
Who am I?
I’m originally from the small town of Canfield, Ohio. I grew up going to the local fair (It’s a HUGE deal), working at a lemonade stand and playing golf with my grandpa. I then attended Bowling Green State University, and not knowing what I wanted to do in life, I got a degree in teaching kiddos with special needs. While this is still a huge passion of mine, I was not truly following my heart. I was that friend that always took a photo for every event. While they may not have been all that good at the time (pixart does NOT flatter), I decided that I wanted to dip my toes into the photography world. After my first taste of this as a career, I jumped in head first and I’ve never looked back.
By following my heart, I can say I’ve never been happier. I want to inspire and work with clients who do the same (say YES to that dream girl)! I am currently married to one heck of a man, and I have a pretty cool cat (I’m slightly obsessed). I went full time with photography after two years of trying to choose between teaching and taking photos (the picture taking always won). We just moved to Ann Arbor, but I can’t wait to find all the cool places and hidden gems. I still travel all over to capture weddings and will continue to serve my Ohio clients (so don’t worry pals).
Let’s do this
ALL I know is that I want to be happy. Who knows where I will end up, but I’m hoping one day somewhere warm, where there is mountains and water and lots and lots of SUN. Eventually, I wanna have little humans running around, and a dog named Ollie with green eyes (specific I know). But for now I am happy with where we are and the life me and my little family are still creating.
Fun facts about me...
I just recently became OBSESSED with Thai Food (a hole in the wall place downtown) and I always eat a clementine before bed
I love traveling and exploring this crazy beautiful planet
I’ve been following a Paleo diet for almost 4 years and I’m still finding new ways to make dinner interesting
I love making new friends (extrovert over here!!!), so I hope you’re up for it too
My favorite type of couples to photograph are the ones ready to adventure and open their heart to new experiences!
