My Why

Hi there friend,

I wanted to invite you to dive into my heart so you can know a little bit about the gal behind the lens. This post is about why I chose to pour myself into wedding photography. Enjoy! 🙂

My goal is to capture love, to capture a thousand words of love. A wedding day is the beginning of legacy that will be passed down from generation to generation. A wedding day is the beginning of a families’ story and I want to capture every detail, every raw, unfiltered, joyful, giggly, tearful, emotion of the beginning. I want 60 years to go by and when their granddaughter is engaged I want her to have the gift of looking at her grandparent’s wedding pictures. I want her to feel, not just see, the love that was on that day. The day that was the beginning of it all. The love that set an example for her and the love that she always longed for.


I believe in the legacy of love, love that’s fought for, love that’s worked at, selfless love, love that you don’t give up on, love that beats 50%, love that’s given to others without reservation, love that you pass on from generation to generation-that kind of love changes the world. It changes those around you, from a stranger to a friend to a spouse. That kind of love changes marriages and therefore family trees. Love changes the way we parent & the way we see the world.


I take pictures to tell the story, the story full of thousands and thousands of words. I take pictures so that the legacy of today can be shared tomorrow. My goal is that the people we touch in a small way or in a big way can feel love and have hope. Hope that their marriage can beat the 50%. Hope that love and kindness is all that truly matters. Hope that love is real and it’s possible for all.  Hope that love changes things.


1st Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.



Here’s to faith, hope, & love
