"And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important."

-Iain Thomas

My motivations are simple: to capture connection. 

I want to make you feel things. I want my images to connect the dots of your story, on your day. I want to give you the gift of powerful imagery. I want you to walk away with images that bring you back to this moment in time a year from now, or 50 years from now. I want the photos I take to be present in your home, in your life. Forever.

I'm sentimental and grasp at the tiny moments that mean everything...  proud parents watching their kids promise the best of themselves to their lovers, the flower girls giggling during the ceremony, the subtle excitement as you lock eyes with the one you love, the sun peeking in at just the right moment..

I believe love is magic. I believe that moments matter. You matter. Your story is important.

I'm not just a wedding photographer. 

My absolute favorite part of being a photographer is capturing cherished moments. Because of this, I find it incredibly rewarding to be a part of a family's story from engagement to wedding to maternity to baby to second baby and so on. I feel so lucky to get to do this work and I don't love one part of it more than the other. It's all so different and so rewarding. 

The way I see love and life is greatly shaped by my maternal grandmother, my Mamaw, my sunshine. Her passing in November 2016 has created a desire in my heart to capture tenderness, to be graceful, to remember why we're here. Her kindness and her love remind me to be present.

My biggest loves are my dog (Tyrion), my family, my babe of a boyfriend, art, travel, and comedy.  I love Amy Poehler and lowkey want to be her. I have a degree in Film from Georgia State and started shooting weddings in 2010. I'm an introverted extrovert. I enjoy being creative and free and I want to help people however I can. I'm also really silly and will probably make some jokes that aren't that funny. Please laugh anyways.

My sunshine.

I've lived in Atlanta my entire adult life and love the city, but there's something about getting out into wilderness that feels like magic every time. 

While I love hiking and adventuring for sessions, your location doesn't have to be epic.

My goal as your photographer is to accent your light and love. I want to showcase who you are right here, right now. I promise the images will be beautiful and meaningful with or without epic scenery. 

Sound good?
