Southwest Missouri's Premiere Wedding Photographer Serving Missouri, Arkansas, and Florida. Available for travel worldwide.
Timeless romance, energy, and spark – I simply love all things wedding.
I’m a hopeless romantic who believes in the fairytale kind of love you see in the movies. I’m a wife to Andy (I lovingly refer to him as "Andy Man") He's my Mr. Fix it, and a good looking musician too! We are proud parents to 3 little ladies. My work is my life, but when i'm not working you can find me in the garden, at the yoga studio, or out to lunch with friends! I believe there’s beauty to be found in each day, and I seek to celebrate it.
As a photographer based in the Ozark Mountains, in Branson, MO, I connect with beautiful people beyond the scope of a lens. I consider it an honor to be invited into people’s most intimate and exciting moments in life. I’m here to tell love stories, and my hope is that the images I create will reflect the beauty and raw emotion of yours.
The compliment i get over and over is that I make my clients feel comfortable, and beautiful in front of my camera, not only are they captivated by my photography, but I create a positive and joyful experience when capturing their love!
I document beautiful details and memorable moments in an honest, editorial, creative style. My lifestyle approach allows the day to run smoothly, capturing moments as they occur naturally, as a love story would.
I also provide as much guidance as you would like on the day. Creating a timeline is helpful for my brides, because it offers them a sense of peace, knowing that everything will be carefully documented.
I have been shooting weddings for 12 years, taking time off to raise our 3 girls in between. Before finding passion for photography, I was in front of the camera, entertaining people from the stage, and have always had a love affair for all genera’s of art & design. I also have a background in primary education, and have a special connection with children.
My dream client is adventurous yet refined. My deep love for adventure brings a sense of wonder, sentimentality, and romance to my work. My dream clients are head over heels in love, and they are truly focused on the meaning of the day, and what it truly represents, a forever kind of love. They see me as an artist, and trust me not only for my creative eye, but see me as their friend! I long to travel more shooting weddings and documentary portraits. I have an adventurous spirit, and I’m looking forward to more traveling in this upcoming year!
My second shooters are carefully selected on their talent, competence and personality, sharing a similar style. I more than likely will shoot with a man as my second shooter, ensuring that you will receive artistic prospective from a woman, and a man.
I really pride myself on professionalism and create a rapport & friendship with my clients. This is so important to me, for you to be yourself, feel relaxed & have fun, while we capture all those love-filled moments!
Looking forward to hearing about your unique love story, and seeing how your souls became entwined…
