I moved here to go to the School of the Art Institute where I received my MFA and I've lived in this awesome city ever since. I'm a big fan of Chicago and love both living and photographing weddings here. For me, great wedding photographs capture the periphery as well as the grander moments. A guest crying from laughter during the best man’s speech or a pair of heels left on the edge of the dance floor are notes that add to a larger story. I truly believe that wedding photography should be authentic documentation. Originally from Oklahoma, there are many times I miss it's red fields. Humor is my favorite trait in people and I can be won over easily with chocolate.
After earning a BA in studio art and minoring in Art History at Indiana University, I moved to Chicago where I began photographing weddings and families. I’m always looking for the moments that carry feeling--the images that capture the emotion of the day in a way that helps you re-live the joy, laughter, and intensity when you look back at them. As much as dramatic images show this, I really love photos with subtlety in expression that show energy between people. I'm also a fan of bad dad jokes, I love trivia but I never know any of the answers, and I’m obsessed with podcasts.
