you found the
love of your life

Now you're looking for the perfect photographer

Choosing your photographer is something you're putting a lot of time and energy into and you want a photographer who is excited to do the same for you. You want someone who is invested in getting to know you who are and what your priorities are for your day. 

You want a photographer who can be intentional about every moment they capture for you, but also able to honor these intimate moments by giving you the space to feel them without feeling rushed or overwhelmed by a camera hoving over your shoulder. I understand how important these moments are for you and it's my mission to document every moment as they happen while also fading into the background.

We won't work off a shot list created months ago, instead I'll capture your day as moments unfold and direct you with prompts that encourage you to be present, flirt, and simply love on your new spouse. You photos should look and feel like you, so when you are in front of my camera my goal is keep it fun, romantic, and genuine. Always.

Planning your wedding shouldn't be stressful or full of uncertainty. You may have questions about where the best locations are for your ceremony, what permits will you need, or what lodging is available in the area? I'm here to help you every step of the way to ensure your elopement is everything you wanted and more. I promise to always be thinking of your vision and what your priorities are for your day.

Photography is a big investment, financially and emotionally. I understand you are entrusting me with your memories and trust me when I say I do not take my job as your photographer lightly. Rather it is an honor to serve you by protecting your memories with intention and great care.

My approach looks like this: From day one, I'm pursuing a relationship with you. Breaking the stranger barrier to better understand who you are as a couple. What's your love story look like? What are your top priorities for your day? When you look back on this day years from now, what are the overall emotions you want captured? The answers to these questions are my roadmap to creating a gallery that looks and feels like you.

I value you and your unique qualities. There is no such thing as awkward when you stand in front of my camera. I want to capture exactly who you are - if you a quiet and calm, your photos should reflect this. If you are carefree and full of spirit, you photos should reflect this. 

I understand you are new to the process, but you can rest assured knowing I am not. Through emails and calls, I'm here to help guide you through the entire process. With vendor recommendations, timeline planning, location scouting, and more!

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm based in Knoxville, Tn. I'm always ready for a new adventure. While my travel dates are limited, my calendar is open for destination elopements as of now. No matter where it is your heart is taking you, I'm ready to capture this epic moment in your love story.

When will i RECEIVE my photos?

When will i RECEIVE my photos?

I want you to get your hands on your photos ASAP. With that being said, I put a lot of love and care into each of your photos. Let me tell ya, editing is far from slapping on a cute filter. I send out about 10-20 sneak peeks within a week of your elopement and full galleries are delivered within 4-6 weeks depending on the business of the season. I will always let you know if something unforeseen (i.e. sick kiddos, death in the family, etc.) comes up causing my turnaround time to run late, but this has rarely ever happens.

What if we are awkward in front of the camera?

What if we are awkward in front of the camera?

I'm asked this ALL THE TIME and each time my response is, not possible friend. There is no such thing as awkward. Bring your personality - the quirks, the giggles, the quiet snuggles. I'm here for it all! It's so important to me that I create an atmosphere where you feel comfortable and confident to be yourself. Hand over heart, I will always create this inviting atmosphere for you.
