A little more about me...
If you would have told me four years ago that I would own my own wedding photography business, I probably would have laughed in your face. I didn't even know how to work a DLSR, and I knew I was going to be an elementary school teacher. But, God obviously had different plans- HAHA!
Two days before the application deadline, I applied to the local community college's photography program and canceled all my plans to attend a big university. I bought a used DLSR and my love for photography and light grew from there.
After interning with three incredible wedding photographers, I quickly found my passion for serving couples during and on their best day ever. My heart fills with joy on wedding days- from fluffing your dress, carrying extra tissues for your mom, dabbing sweat off bridesmaids, pinning on boutonnieres, to capturing every little detail of your wedding day- every part makes my heart grow 10x.
My Love Story
This is me and my new husband, Justin!!! He is my high school sweetheart, the first and only guy I've dated, a real life teddy bear, and my biggest fan! We met in high school while working at our local Dairy Queen. We are complete opposites, but compliment each other in every way.
Together, we enjoy hiking, sitting around the lake, cooking, spending time reading scripture, and going to the Smoky Mountain National Park!
We said 'I do' this past December. Everybody told us life would be different once we were married, and man were they right; life is much much sweeter these days. :)
