This Halloween elopement editorial gave me allllll the spooky fall vibes I needed! Around this time last year, a TikTok trend blew up of people putting pumpkins over their heads and taking photos in the woods. I wanted to add my own twist on the trend, and messaged one of my favorite wedding hair and makeup artists around, Sierra.

The first thing I thought after I delivered India’s Shaver Lake senior photos was “Wow! These are the senior photos I wish I had.” I paid a friend of mine $50 for my senior session back in 2014. She took journalism with me and was the only photographer I knew at the time. There’s quite […]

Fueled by equal parts lemonade and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. Your story, your love, is beautiful and I can't wait to capture it in images you will treasure for years to come. 

I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together.
