I like to keep things simple. I love spending time with my family, relaxing on the front porch, and trying my best to keep my plants alive.
I met my perfect match and husband Ryan at UofL seven years ago, and shot my first wedding four years ago! We moved away to Virginia for three years while Ryan attended law school. Now, we are so happy to be back in Kentucky close to family! Today we are living in our very own, 100-year old Kentucky home with our pup Summer.
In college, I would lie awake at night, wondering how I could make my dream of wanting to be a "real" photographer a reality, and here I am today! I LOVE what I do so much! I still have "pinch me" moments on a regular basis.
My favorite night of the week is when Ryan and I get to spend time just the two of us! It's usually simple, but that's fine with me.
One of the first things I bought for our new home was two white rocking chairs for the front porch. I especially love southern wedding traditions!
When I'm not photographing and editing weddings, I like to spend my time outside, especially with our dog Summer.
Summer is my best friend. She's definitely my shadow! KGP brides often bring their furry friends to their engagement sessions or even weddings! I love it!
Ryan and I have been lucky enough to go to some amazing places during our last several years together. I'm always itching to go somewhere new!
I will never forget the brief toast my late big sister gave on my wedding day. She hadn't written anything down, but the words she spoke that day stuck with me and play a huge role in why I am a wedding photographer today.
She said that love isn't a feeling. It's a decision. She told us how we're going to have fights. We're going to feel angry, and we won't feel like loving the other person. But, this is when we choose love.
Marriage is a lifetime decision. It's about choosing to love your person every single day, no matter what.
The wedding day is just day one of choosing love everyday for the rest of your lifetimes. I want to make that day as memorable, stress-free, and as cherished as possible.
I'd love to hear about your wedding day. And, I want to know about you—how you met, funny first date stories, and how y'all got engaged.
I'm here as a resource beyond photography, whether you're looking for recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals. I'm happy to share what I've learned over the years.
I'm a big fan of engagement sessions because it allows us to meet before the big day. Oh, and because you get beautiful photographs that will last a long time!
I'll check in about two months before the wedding to see how it's all coming together. I'll want to make sure I have all the details and information I need to make sure I can do my best to serve you on the big day.
The big day is here! I'm so excited to be a part of your special day. I'll do all I can to serve you and leave a positive, lasting impression.
I hope the relationship doesn't end after I deliver your photographs. I want to keep in touch! And if you decide to have kids, I'd love to document your growing family.
It's not just about the photographs I'll take on your wedding day.
I believe in serving and providing every client with an experience that exceeds expectations.
