I feel truly blessed to be able to follow my dream of being a photographer. I absolutely LOVE what I do! From the time I picked up a camera, I was obsessed with taking pretty pictures. After 12 years, my focus has shifted… I have come to realize that one of the most important parts of my job is telling your story through my lens. If I’m photographing your wedding day, I focus on authentic, natural and real moments. If I’m photographing your senior pictures, your personality and inner beauty will shine through! These are the moments that you will forever cherish and remember. Welcome to the blog. I can’t wait for the opportunity to capture YOU and tell your story!
Peoria, IL Wedding Photographer
If I could do it all over again, I would definitely consider getting married in the winter. I love winter weddings and all of the unique, creative details that can be incorporated. The light is so lovely and the mood is always festive!
This was a Christmas inspired winter session with just a hint of snow on the ground at a local Christmas tree farm. Featuring two of my favorite people and a collaboration of several talented, passionate wedding vendors who love weddings as much as I do!
Thank you Hannah & Barret! The two of you connected in a magical way. XO
