Photography has not been my life long career by any means. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Degree in Fashion and Marketing. After many years of working in my field and feeling like all of my creativity was being bottled up, I stumbled upon something that I never in a million years would have thought could become a career. I’ve always taken pictures – since I was young.. Not because of the “art” of it and I certainly didn’t know how to correctly use my camera, but what I loved about it was capturing memories. I couldn’t wait to drop off my film and pick up the prints. There are many things that make me happy, but holding a memory (print) in my hands is high on the list. So I learned how to “use” my camera, and I studied and studied and KEPT studying the “art” of it. And I fell in love all over again. I love my family and cherish strong friendships. There are so many little things about each relationship I have that completely define and inspire me. I imagine most people share these feelings. On your wedding day, the most important people in your life will be with you and my goal is to capture everything about those relationships. I take a lifestyle approach and am inspired by beautiful light – all while capturing authentic moments and emotions that will tell the story of your day. I’ve always believed that if you surround yourself with amazing people, amazing things can happen. And your wedding day should be just that – amazing. My desire is to make sure your whole experience – not just the finished product – is unforgettable. And I hope that when it’s all over, you can hold those prints in your hands and fall in love all over again.
