In a world inundated with "pretty," I am passionate about creating work that surpasses surface level beauty. Imagery that isn't just a feast for the eyes, but also captivates the heart.

To achieve this, I believe my job starts long before the big day. I make it a priority to get to know my clients. Understanding who they are, what and who is important to them. This allows me to customize the experience to each of my clients and create a memorable set of images that is personal and heartfelt. 

When I am not behind the lens, I'm equal parts homebody and jetsetter. I love spending time at my home in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains just as much as I love chasing after a new adventure.
