hey hey |

I am a destination wedding & elopement photographer based in Destin, Florida. I am originally from the small college town of Lexington, Kentucky, but before long my family moved to Toronto, Canada. My most vivid memory from living there is being able to walk into our backyard and straight onto my neighbor’s ice rink, much better than any indoor ice rink I have come across. Fast forward a handful of years, we moved to Nashville where I finished up elementary school and attended high school. I graduated in 2020 from the University of Tennessee Knoxville majoring in marketing with a concentration in entrepreneurship.

I am an avid reader, traveler, and learner. You can never go wrong with a cup of coffee and a good book. My cat, Finn, will take rare breaks in his energetic day to curl up with me – he is good company!


my philosophy.

I look past the obvious - close observation and engagement of the subject is my process. The challenge is to see beyond the distraction of the conspicuous to capture its unique self. The little details that others may miss, I won’t. My favorite things to shoot are the little things - fire escapes between buildings, little lace details on a wedding dress, tiny little hands and feet. Those are the things that we so easily look over or think nothing of in our day to day life, but when you go back and look at my images I want you to think to yourself, “I didn’t even realize that detail or that she was taking this.” Those are the moments and memories that are most precious, the ones we don’t even realize are happening. 

I value all my clients and my goal is for them to always feel completely confident and comfortable. I bring an element of ease and thoughtfulness to the day that not everyone does. When you invest in me you are not only investing in a photographer, but in someone who truly wants to celebrate with you and wants to befriend you. This is not purely a business relationship. I do not see my clients as just clients – you invite me into important and intimate moments. I honor the trust you place in me and like to leave each shoot feeling that both of us have gained a friend. 

I empower my couples to celebrate their relationship in a way that is uniquely them as they promise their lives to each other because this moment deserves to be meaningful, deliberate, and unforgettable. Where you get married matters. How you say your vows matters and who you choose to spend the day with matters. Be intentional with every part of YOUR day. 

Come on a journey of a lifetime with me to capture it all. Do you want in? Book now!



I’m going to be honest I will never be the bride that elopes or have an intimate wedding like the ones that I so love capturing. Not for the reasons you may be thinking, but because my family is all very close anddddd very big (I have 30 first cousins on my mom’s side). Which I am okay with. So my day will be filled with many many people, but I’m going to be intentional in how I choose to celebrate with all of my family and friends. 

I realize that everyone chooses to elope or have an intimate wedding for different reasons, but I promise that when you choose to elope or have that intimate wedding, for whatever reason, on that day and every day leading up to it (and after) I will not just be your photographer or elopement guide, I will become your friend. I will cheer you on. I will help you out when you need it. I will be a shoulder to cry on and I will be there on your big day to help you zip up your dress. 

I realize your photographs are going to me so much more to you because most likely I will be the only one there that is taking pictures or that these images will be the ones given and shown to family members and friends that were not there. Your photographs are what you are going to look back on for the rest of your lives and pass down for generations. The trust you put in me is an honor and not taken lightly. I am here for you to make this day one to remember.
