If you’re looking for imagery that is timeless and full of emotion,
I’m the photographer for you!
Inspired by God’s grace, artisan florals, classic literature, and a good breakfast, I am building a life that I love by preserving the world’s most beautiful love stories.
My favorite days are spent behind my camera, connecting with my sweet couples and their families, and capturing a love story that will be told for generations to come.
In a world where everything is instant and momentary, I serve my couples by providing imagery that will still be timeless after dozens of anniversaries. It is my honor to provide my couples with wedding photography and photography products that become family heirlooms–precious keepsakes that will be passed down again and again.
So let’s get started—because your love story deserves to be retold.

THE “WHY” BEHIND MY BUSINESS
IN CASE YOU WANT TO KNOW ME A LITTLE BETTER
HERE’S A SNEAK PEEK!
What’s your motto?
Eat tacos. JK…I don’t really have one, but I do have a Scripture verse that keeps me going. Psalm 73:26 – My flesh and my heart faileth, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
What’s your favorite thing to photograph?
Brides. Seems cliche, but bridal portraiture can be so life-giving—especially when the bride allows me to curate a lifestyle feel to her portraits.
Do you have a favorite photograph?
Yes—I have two actually. The first is a black and white photo of Ricky and I from our wedding day that hangs in a silver frame in our living room. Someday, when we have a fireplace, it will sit on our mantel. The second is also from our wedding day—a picture of my little sister and I dancing together. The joy connected with that memory is just overwhelming.
Earning my master’s degree. I am the first one in my family to complete grad school. Starting my own business is next in line.
Favorite heroes in real life?
Corrie Ten Boom, Joni Eareckson Tada, my dad, and whoever invented tacos. Obviously.

Latest Netflix binge?
Star Trek Voyager. Nailed It. Merlin. And probably Parks and Recreation for the nth time.
Pride & Prejudice and Gladiator. I know, I know…it doesn’t make sense. If you really want an explanation, I’m happy to provide one–just prepare to meet the literature nerd in me…
a few more things
THAT REALLY MATTER TO ME
My dad is a first-generation American. Wow. The impact of that statement still gets me. He came to the States as a refugee during the Vietnam War, and the fact that he’s even alive is a miracle! His story is incredibly inspiring, and challenges me every day to work hard and be grateful. I honestly think that I get my entrepreneurial spirit from him.
I was born and bred Texan, and I am so proud of that! I know…it kinda confirms that the stereotypes about Texans are real, but I will always be loyal to my home state! Being Texan taught me to be a patriotic American! I hope to move back there someday, but for now…we wait. Photographing a Texas wedding is always a highlight for me, so where are you at, Texas brides??
My husband is an officer in the United States Army Reserves, and while I never imagined that I would marry a soldier, I’m so glad that I did. His integrity, work ethic, and care for his soldiers impresses me every day. As if I weren’t already so grateful to live in a free country, being married to a man in the military keeps me from ever taking it for granted. And I love that.
