My very first photography session was for newly engaged college friends. We spent a late spring afternoon meandering across Auburn University’s campus, taking photos. We giddily talked about their future together and celebrated their love story as I photographed them enjoying each others’ company. I’ve been hooked ever since!
Over the past 6 years, I’ve photographed weddings and families in my hometown of Birmingham, AL and across the Southeast. I could name a dozen things I love about being a photographer, but at the top of any list would be building relationships with clients through the time we spend together - something I feel especially drawn to because of my background as a counselor. With each couple and family I photograph, I’m increasingly grateful for the time spent sharing in their joy and documenting their lives together.
On any given day, you can find me in my kitchen cooking a new recipe, listening to records in my living room, or daydreaming about my next trip. My favorite moments are spent in deep conversation with friends, and soaking up life in Birmingham (usually at a favorite local restaurant)!
I believe in timeless imagery filled with emotion—photographs that will stand the test of time and honestly capture the love you have for each other. Taking a slower, thoughtful approach to photography by listening to people’s stories and carefully observing how they interact allows me to understand what makes each relationship unique and find the “in-between” moments that aren’t prompted. I believe this captures your relationship in its truest form!
From the earliest stages of planning together to the final delivery of your photos, every step of your photography experience is intentionally designed to put you at ease. My greatest hope is that taking photos together will be a fun memory in itself—that you’ll be reminded of what a gift it is to love and be loved and that your photos will always spark gratitude for the people in your life.
My approach is rooted in a simple belief: One of the greatest gifts we’ve been given is the people in our lives, and the deep, meaningful relationships we’ve built with them deserve to be documented.
