I'm so happy you're here! 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 (you can take the Midwesterner out of Chicago, but you can't take the Chicago out of the Midwesterner!), baking ALL of the sweets, snuggling up with a good book, daydreaming of my next travel adventure or jaunt to Disney World, or searching high and low for the best brunch spots.

i remember days spent dreaming of being where i am now, wondering if i'd ever even get there. it's almost automatic to find yourself up against the naysayers, who confidenly claim you must be crazy to pursue a dream so far out of your reach.

Except, thanks to you, i'm living that dream every day. because of my clients (who eventually turn into friends!), i get to do the things that eighteen-year-old me wonderED if i'd ever do. i'll never forget the doubt i felt, which has since turned into neverending gratitude, awe and heart-swelling joy at the fact that so many couples trust me completely with such an incredibly important day.

it's all because of you

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.

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.

I BELIEVE THAT BEING A GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER IS ABOUT SO MUCH MORE
THAN JUST CREATING AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHS.

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 six years, and said our vows in an intimate ceremony in Charleston (at Upstairs at Midtown), in August of 2020! 

i'M MARRIED TO

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.

MY OTHER TITLE IS

honorary bridesmaid

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. Wanting a fully custom wedding invitation suite, or any day-of stationary? I can help! When I'm not shooting, editing, or emailing, I'm designing!

I HAVE A DEGREE IN

graphic design

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. It's always one of my favorite things to show my couples around town, and help them to fall in love with it too!

i'M PROUD TO CALL CHARLESTON

my home

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!
