I don’t always wear tulle, but when I do, it’s frolicking through a field with this handsome man. Occasionally, I am asked why I chose to use my married name for my business; the answer is in these images. He is the one putting that smile on my face, he is the one supporting my dreams over his own, & he is the one that made me a bride. I couldn’t imagine taking that leap of faith to capture the sweetest brides without recognizing the incredible man that made me one. While my business may have his last name, my heart was in photography long before we met.
The place I am most comfortable in this beautiful world is behind the lens. Nothing can compete with the way I feel when my hands are tightly bound to my camera and I am warmly directing a client into their next memory. As a child I was always a vivid story teller, Skip & Sandy can attest to my enthusiastic & usually over embellished stories. I loved captivating and entertaining for the sheer reaction of others. In adult life this transpired into a degree from Longwood University in Organizational Communications. While I couldn’t think of a more suitable degree for someone that loves to talk, my career paths did not always fulfill my creative side or drive to serve others. Being a wedding photographer allows me to directly connect with people during the happiest times of their life. It doesn’t get much better than that. There’s not a session that goes by where I don’t think about just how blessed I am to have this little business.
