love in motion

Capturing your                           
so you can relive the moments for a lifetime 

For the non-traditional couples who desire to spend the day celebrating their love in an intimate setting

there are no rules.

Whether it’s just a ceremony with the two of you, a family dinner in the woods, an afternoon at the arcade, or sipping drinks atop the Smith Tower before exchanging vows, I’m here for it. 

I fully embrace nontraditional weddings that reflect you as a couple.

It’s your day, and that means

Capturing your love in a timeless, vibrant, and genuine way.

I discovered my passion for film photography in high school and pursued my bachelor’s degree in Indiana. I got my start as a second shooter in 2016 with weddings that had upwards of 400 guests. 

The experience solidified my love for capturing the magic of weddings, and it also led me to my passion for more intimate celebrations. As a result, I made the decision to specialize in documenting the beauty and authenticity of smaller weddings, and I love it. 

I have a passion for both film and digital photography, and I still use the 35mm camera my mom passed down to me that she has in college. After many years of using it solely for personal projects, I have finally started incorporating film into many of my sessions. Film gives a timeless, unfiltered feel that focuses on savoring the moments as they unfold. 

In the spring of 2018, I officially made the move to the Pacific Northwest and now call Seattle home. I married the love of my life, Joel, at our own intimate wedding.

I have an adventurous yet easy-going personality, and I believe that the key to capturing your special day is to truly connect with you and your partner. I prioritize authenticity above all else, and my approach to photography is to adapt and flow with the natural rhythm of your wedding day.

I met my husband

On Hinge when I moved to Seattle 

Proud of

The fact that nearly 30% of my couples fly in from out of state to work with me for proposals, adventure couple sessions, or saying “I do.” I’m also honored that my couples have flown me in to photograph their weddings in California, New York, Tennessee, Indiana, Oregon, Michigan, Georgia, and Illinois instead of finding someone local. It’s so special to me.

Lavender oat milk lattes 

Favorite flower

Peach Ranunculus (and if you add on your bouquet by me, we can incorporate them if they match your color scheme!) 

Happiness is

Bodies of water you can’t see across 

My style

Vibrant, with a focus on depth rather than airiness. I love true-to-life color, and my editing style reflects that 

Where I’m from:

 Oswego, NY, a small city on Lake Ontario that was known for beautiful sunsets and record-breaking snowfall. 

Always down for

Road trips and adventures, especially when we’re heading toward the mountains 

Your journey to find your soulmate                            and now it’s time to celebrate! 

No matter how you plan to say “I do,” it’s a day you’ll want to remember forever, and I’m honored that you’re considering me to stand alongside you to document it. 

led you here,
