It's all of the little behind-the-scenes, in-between moments that can make or break a great photographer. I believe I have a servant's heart and love those little moments that sometimes feel like they have nothing to do with being a photographer, but everything to do with being a true friend to my clients.

At the end of the day, I will always strive not only for great images, but also a great experience where you feel like you've spent the day with an old friend, not just your photographer, and can look back on the memories I captured with more joy than ever before.

behind the photos

I'm so glad you stopped by! Just as I hope to get to know your story, I'd love for you to know a little bit of mine. I've always loved art, and picked up a camera for the first time during my high school days; it's honestly hard to believe that over eight years later, I'm living my biggest dream as a wedding photographer in Charleston, something I never thought was within my reach. Not a day goes by that I don't remember how I started, and how blessed I am to do what I do.

When I don't have my camera in hand, you can bet I'm enjoying time with my husband and our pup, Sadie, going for long walks in downtown Charleston to find new locations for my next shoot, rooting for the Chicago Cubs, baking ALL of the sweets, snuggling up with a good book, daydreaming of my next vacation or jaunt to Disney World, or searching high and low for the best brunch spots.

I BELIEVE THAT BEING A PHOTOGRAPHER IS ABOUT
SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST TAKING AMAZING PICTURES.

I started taking photos around the age of 14, and from that moment on, my love for photography has steadily blossomed into the full-fledged business that it is today. And truthfully, I have my incredible clients to thank for the constant chances to chase this dream. For me, the relationships I have built with so many of my clients has been the greatest reward to come from being a photographer. I am truly passionate about serving my clients in any way I can, and providing them not only with beautiful photos they're cherish forever, but also a wonderful, stress-free experience in front of the camera.

Drew and I met in college when we both switched to Graphic Design at the same time, and truthfully, I knew right away he was my person! We've been together five years, and said our vows in an intimate ceremony in Charleston (at Upstairs at Midtown), in August of 2020!

my college sweetheart

From helping my brides with their veil and pinning boutonnieres, to third-wheeling with my couples for epic night-time photos, I love being there every step of the way to make a wedding as memorable as possible.

Once I realized that photography would always have my heart, I wanted to find a degree that helped me to grow but still support my business along the way. When I'm not shooting, editing, or emailing, I'm designing!

I was born and raised in Northern Illinois, but have known for a very long time that my heart was pulling me to Charleston! From the people, to the beautiful places to explore and amazing food to eat - I love it all.

Even before I began photographing weddings, I have always loved nighttime photography of the stars or the city lights. Add a couple very much in love after their best day ever, and that's when the magic happens!

i believe some of the
best photos happen when

the party is over

One of my biggest mantras is that, the legacy we leave behind is rooted in the relationships we make! This is true for my closest loved ones, but just as important are all of my clients and HFP family, who trust me with some of the most important moments of their lives!

WEDDING DAY FAVORITES

I'm a big believer in following your heart when it comes to whether or not to choose a first look, but I absolutely love them for the opportunity to have a more private moment alone, as well as all of the extra portrait time!

WEDDING DAY FAVORITES

If I could live another life with another dream career, I'd learn to be a florist. I absolutely love seeing each unique blend of flowers, with their textures and colors, that really capture the personality of my brides.

WEDDING DAY FAVORITES

They're certainly not for everyone, but a super-long cape or veil can make for the most romantic portraits, not to mention a grand entrance for your ceremony that gives all of the drama! 
Tip - for those floating veil shots, opt for tulle without any embellishments.
