 I am lucky to find myself focusing on the love, beauty and positivity in my community. I get to witness and photograph people who are dedicated to building wonderful lives together, surrounding themselves with everyone they care about, and starting families in their futures. Weddings are a culmination of hopes, promises, and devotion and I find myself tearing up with emotion during every single wedding I capture.

I learn something new from each wedding that I do and I am always working to better myself by learning new skills and build new relationships within the industry.  I am blessed to have been given so many incredible opportunities and to have met so many inspiring people!

 

 

     WHAT'S IN MY CAMERA BAG??

  • Nikon D610, D200, & D3300 camera bodies

  • Nikon 50mm f 1.4 portrait lens

  • Nikon 18 - 200mm F 3.5 -5.6 wide angle / telephoto lens

  • A set of Altura external flash units and accessories

  • My teal Polaroid camera and film ... because sometimes it's fun to pull out for one shot of the couple for an instant keepsake!

I got my bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in May of 2015. During my college career I took classes in black and white film photography, digital photography, art therapy with photography, and was the photographer for the campus newspaper. I recently received my certification in professional photography at NYIP. I also spent 6 months working at a professional  studio right out of college, but quickly realized I wanted to own my own business so I could control the quality of service provided to my clients.
