oh hi!

I love photography. SURPRISE! bawahaha I also love traveling (more specifically- road tripping to national parks),
being crafty
, and trying to convince my boyfriend Paul to go grocery shopping without me. Paul and I
 moved from Massachusetts to Texas together in 2017 after years of me asking pretty please. I enjoy the heat while he enjoys complaining about it. Together, we enjoy camping, working out, and dream about renovating our own home. But the majority of the time we're playing with our dog and binge watching The Office. 

Although I live in Austin, I travel back to New England frequently. Don't be afraid to reach out to see if I'll be there when you need to book a session! Not in Austin or New England? Shweeeeet- I'm always down for an adventure! Check out my travel schedule.

I am so pleased to share that I've received The Knot Best of Weddings 2020 award! This is 100% a result of the amazing reviews from my couples and their families. I am so incredibly thankful! 

I am so lucky I get to work with the very best couples!

I got my first camera to photograph landscapes. I went on a five month solo road trip and fell in love with this amazing planet. But the second the camera was in my hands, I was immediately drawn to photographing connections between people. Since that moment I haven't hesitated while my heart led me in the direction of wedding and elopement photography.  I love the in-between, unprompted moments; the subtle way your partner glances over at you with a side smile during the ceremony, the groom fiddling with his new ring, the uncontrollable laughter when you're melting into each other during your couple's photos. I'm excited just thinking about the opportunity to photograph the little quirks in your relationship! 

When you hire me, I hope  to be so much more than "just a vendor". I'll be there to pump you up and calm you down. To fix your hair, refill your champagne, and tell you how freaking amazing you are. I truly enjoy becoming friends with my couples and I feel like your photos are better because of it. The more comfortable you are with me, the more natural your photos will be. So, think we'd click? Let's get this friendship started!

who, me?

Now that you know a little more about me, let me learn about you!
