Hi! I'm full-time wedding + elopement photographer, and native Hoosier. I was born + raised right here in Indiana. I have a master's degree in social work. Serving people is my passion! I'm a solid mixture of focused/serious + fun-loving/warm. I was a college cross country + track athlete. My last collegiate race was the marathon, where I placed 17th in the nation. I am obsessed with sweet potato fries and anything dark chocolate + peanut butter. My favorite movie is Shawshank Redemption; I tear up every time. I love planning travel, decorating my home, and spending quality time with my family + husband.
Jim and I met in in a pre-calculus class that neither one of us needed to be in. We instantly bonded over rocks, trees, and photography.
This is my other half, second shooter, + adventure partner, Jim. He's a mountain bike lover, avid reader, persistent tinkerer, and dry-joke-maker. We got married under a 150-year-old Catalpa tree back in 2015. We believe marriage is the ultimate adventure! We're Christ-followers, in awe of God's magnificent creation. We're goofy, kind, and passionate people. When we're not working, we enjoy camping, traveling, being homebodies (with wine), and spending time with friends + family.

We book couples who we have some common ground with + can trust us and our creative skill. We truly hope to get to know you on a personal level and serve you with our time + talents. Relationship-focused photography is our goal for all. A genuinely fun photo experience is also something we want for every couple. Feeling comfortable to be yourselves with us is important. Even if you think you’re weird. We are too. Let’s be weird together!
We avoid heavily-posed images and intermittently guide you with prompts + activities. Movement in images is key with us; none of that “hold still and smile” stuff. Well, maybe a few of those, but we’re best suited for fun-loving, energetic, and adventurous individuals who like to be in nature. Let the wind whip your hair, kick off your shoes, and enjoy the moments. Let’s grab a burger + drink or two. We’re not just another wedding vendor.
We’ll partner with you during the wedding planning process; use us as a resource! An efficient timeline of your wedding day, with natural lighting + a photography point-of-view in mind is important to get the best images. Traveling somewhere for the big day? We’re always down! We love discovering new places + a good adventure. We’ll help you plan the perfect location to exchange vows. We work hard to create meaningful + emotional photos that will make you smile, laugh, and tear-up years from now. Our wedding was the best day of our lives (so far), and we cherish our photos. We want the same for you.
