I have to admit I am a fan of an amazing love story.
As a girl, I was always caught up in the stories of couples who ran away to the woods to tie the knot. They are adventurers, romantics and travelers. They value the moments they are in and the experience.

My aesthetic is not about a light or dark image style; however, I do lean a bit moody. My style focuses on the connection between couples and their families. My couples are taking their small weddings outdoors to the forest, desert canyons and beaches. I am never opposed to photographing an indoor event, I just love how nature can bring its own special something to an event. 

When I was five years old my father gave me a broken Brownie Box camera that I went door to door taking neighbors photos with. What he originally thought to be a toy for a child became a 43 year companion. I have three loves in my life; family, sports and service. 

I have a bachelors degree in portraiture from the Arts Institute of Pittsburgh; I have skills and experience with both natural and artificial light scenarios, but I am a huge fan of the the look available light offers portrait.

Over the last five years, I focused my services on professional athletes and their families. These days, I am opening up my services to clientele that is not so high profile, as well. I am servicing approximately 20 elopements per year total, by design. This allows me to concentrate on a couples most important details. in a boutique setting I provide quality over quantity.

In July 2020, I retired from a 20-year in law enforcement with the State of Utah and moved to Independence Township, Pennsylvania. My husband and I own a 13.5 acre lot of forest at the top of a hill. I am in awe everyday with how simple life has become for us "off the grid." I spend my days training my Cane Corso and working with brides. It is the best life for me.
