We get choices.

We get them everyday. And tucked in the folds of these everyday choices come these bigger decisions that define everything: choosing one another. Picking a person out from a crowd. Placing our hand into someone else’s and whispering through the nerves, “I choose you. And I want to spend the rest of my life showing the world just how much I choose our love.”

These are the choices, the realtime blessings, I capture with my lens. Through a hybrid film style of shooting, I look to find these blessings everywhere: in the way two first look at one another on that big day. In how their hands spread wide open to what it looks like to become one. How the world seems to hush and say through the silence, “They are in love. They are very much in love.”

I want to be there for your big and little choices to come. To bless you and serve you at every angle as you figure out what a lifetime will look like for two. To be one who sheds light on the beautiful entanglement of love and legacy.

My heart isn’t just to be your photographer, it is to stand beside you as you walk in the victories of your milestones to come. As someone who has recently gone through the up’s and down’s of planning a wedding, I believe in being present and available for the craziness of all the details. I bring my husband Matt into the process of getting to know my clients with the hopes that we will be a quiet reminder of what can so easily be forgotten in the chaos of making a wedding happen: we choose one another because God first chose us. All of this is already His.

This is just the start. The choice to have your day documented for all the beauty it’s worth. It’s going to be wild and precious and lovely and real. But, above all things, it’s only the beginning.

I think the thing that most adequately equips me to serve my clients on their wedding day is that before I am anything else, I am a wife. What marriage has taught me is that love is a choice, that everyday my husband and I wake up and choose one another.

Love Came Down.

Love Came Down.

Last year I founded a wedding blog inspired by faith and dedicated to couples preparing for a Christ-centered marriage.

Thea and Rigby are our four-legged babies. They have stolen our hearts, couch cushions, and my side of the bed.

Charleston.

Charleston.

Our marriage story began in Charleston, and every year we return to visit. There is something about her historic streets, the sweet smell of magnolia blossoms, and her exquisite southern faire that has us captivated!

Motherhood.

Motherhood.

I am inspired by the gentleness, the dedication, the joy a mother finds caring for her little. There has been a shift in my heart towards the way I view motherhood, and I think it's completely because I've recently had the joy of watching my sister become a mother for the first time.
