"She makes you feel instantly comfortable!
even my non-photo loving husband loved being in front of the camera with her. she becomes a part of your family seamlessly weaving in and out of the wedding day always with a smile on her face"
- Jenn + David
Photography is my medium to celebrate life! Besides my skill with a camera, my clients appreciate my ability to make them feel comfortable + at ease in front of my lenses - so your wedding day or portrait session feels like hanging out with a long lost BFF.
I'm dual-based out of the Chicago area and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but I've traveled all over the world documenting love stories. An enneagram 6w7, I'm all about family, fun, and making the best memories, + when I'm not working, you can probably catch me at the beach or pool with my kids (we love the outdoors)! PS, I'm a huge dog person, so if you tell me you're including yours in your photos, we're probably gonna get along great.
My little family of four is comprised of my husband, David, + me, plus our two girls, Aria + Abigail.
I admit, I am a sucker for a true crime podcast or documentary.
I am the biggest dog person you will ever meet, + I think dogs at weddings should be more of a thing.
Give me my Jeep Wrangler, some sunny weather, and an open road - let's go adventuring!
+ I will never understand people who don't need it - like, how???
From the shores of South Carolina to Chicago's Lake Michigan waterfront to the tropic sands of the Caribbean, the beach is my happy place.
