Originally from the rural farmland of southern Indiana, I’m inspired by the beauty and simplicity of nature. My imagery is romantic and timeless, combined with a lighthearted approach, to capture who you truly are as a couple.

After graduating Indiana University with a degree in Theatre, I headed to Hollywood. My training in staging and art direction means you can relax as I direct and pose you to look and feel your best in front of my camera.

I spent three years studying improvisation at one of the best programs in Los Angeles. You can trust me to be level-headed while thinking on my feet if something unexpected pops up on your wedding day.

Working in Hollywood gave me the opportunity to rub elbows with celebrities and VIPs at high profile events. You can rest assured my team will be rubbing elbows with your guests too, creating beautiful portraits of them throughout the day. Everyone is a VIP to us! 

After L.A., I moved to my current home of Arizona, where I spent 10 years in residential new home sales for some of the top builders in the country before launching my photography career. My attention to detail, organization, efficiency, and professionalism means you'll receive an easy, seamless and stress-free experience.

This combination of my small town roots, theatrical background and business sense uniquely provides you and your families with an exclusive, one-of-a-kind experience that is second to none.

FUN FACTS

My hometown in rural southern Indiana has a population of less than 100. It's the type of place they write country songs about.

After college, I packed up my car and drove to Hollywood with dreams of being a movie star. You can see me for a half second in such classics as the NSYNC "Dirty Pop" music video and the movie "A View from the Top" with Gwyneth Paltrow.

I've sat on the Friends couch with photos to prove it, and Jennifer Aniston once left me an honest-to-goodness Happy New Year voicemail. 

I love 80s rock: Van Halen, Journey, Def Leppard, and Guns n Roses are some of my favorites. 

I've known my three closest friends since we went to kindergarten together. We live in different cities, but text daily, and visit each other at least once a year.
