I’m a believer that one of the biggest adventures you can have in this life is the adventure of love.
Whether you elope or have a big wedding, the day you celebrate finding your person can be one of the most beautiful and joyful days of your life.
My photography focuses on telling the full story of the day, capturing natural portraits, editorial style details, and candid moments. I use a mixture of full frame and medium format photo gear, a true to life editing style that won’t age as another fad, and I join your wedding team to help plan a day that will get you the best photographs possible.
Weddings go by in the blink of an eye, and these images will just get more precious as time goes on. I’d love to capture and celebrate your story with you!
A quick lowdown of who I am:
Southeast Alaska raised, Anchorage living, southern born military brat, helicopter pilot dad, life coach mom, younger sister to an older sister who’s a northern living badass, six moves in six years all across the country, finally settled down, working hard to live a life full of creativity, love, and adventure.
A few things I believe:
The bigger the dog the better, Colin Firth will always make the best Darcy, there’s no such thing as too much sushi, the fancy gin is worth it, you get what you work for, and photography is the most powerful way to hold onto what we love the most.

I'm based in Anchorage, Alaska but travel out of state for the majority of my weddings. Because of this, travel fees are already included for most out of state events. Get in touch with your wedding location for more details!
Although it doesn't really have a name, I see it as a mixture of candid, documentary, and fine art... honest, real images that are beautifully and naturally captured.
Couples tend to book 6-12 months in advance. The sooner the better... even better if you contact me to ensure availability before you secure your wedding venue!
Yes! I have multiple camera bodies, lenses, and lighting with me at each wedding and portrait session. I'm always prepared in case of a failure, and have two camera bodies strapped to my body for the majority of the day.
Yes! It's no problem to provide proof to your venue if required.
Definitely! Beautiful images require great lighting and plenty of time, so being involved with the creation of your timeline will help ensure I can give you the best images possible.
All packages include a personal use license, which allows couples to print and use their images online. As the creator I retain the copyright (which all photographers automatically do as the artist). All this basically means you can't sell them for a profit (sorry stock photo website!). Other than that they're yours to use.
I love to shoot celebrations of all shapes and sizes, and believe fully in love and equality.
I'm self taught over the last 20 years. I'm now 8 years into my wedding career and have invested in photography workshops, business courses, and mentors. There's always more to learn, and I'm always happy to share the knowledge I've gained from others!
My workhorse is a Medium Format Digital, the Fuji GFX 50S paired with a Zeiss 80 f/2.0.
My other photo gear includes:
Canon L-Series Prime lenses:
Medium Format Film:
MacBook Pro (I mainly edit on this)
Photomechanic (For photo culling)
Lots of good tunes. :)
Lightroom with customized Mastin and Refined Presets, utilizing Photoshop for extensive edits.
Mostly digital, occasionally film. I always edit them to match so they're one cohesive set of images.
I'm always on the lookout for talented second shooters around the country. If you're interest please drop me a line.
“I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you, again. I can’t tell you how glad I am that we used your services for the big day! Not only because you did an absolutely amazing job, but because some of your photos have become exceedingly precious. Since my wedding, I have lost two people who were very, very dear to me unexpectedly to illness. Your photos of them celebrating my occasion with all of my family there are some of the best and most recent that I have of them. I am thanking my lucky stars today that I insisted on such a talented photographer as you!”
