3 Reasons to Consider a First Look at Your Wedding

What is a First Look? A first look is a dedicated, private time for the bride and groom to see each other before the wedding ceremony. Traditionally, the first time a groom might see the bride at the wedding is when she is walking down the aisle. While not every couple chooses a first look, […]


Desert Elopement in Joshua Tree

This desert elopement in Joshua Tree proves that sometimes less really is more! There is a special place in my heart for elopements. In fact, I sometimes wished I eloped instead of pursuing a traditional wedding. But when I was planning my own wedding, I thought elopements were only done in a courthouse. I had […]


What’s In My Camera Bag

One aspect of getting to know your photographer is finding out their equipment and what they have in their camera bag. I thought I’d write a blog to share the latest ingredients in my bag right now! My camera bag has changed over the past two years (and future changes in the works) so I […]


Point Defiance Park // Grace’s Senior Session

Grace’s senior session at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, WA was simply perfection. I’ve had the honor of shooting Grace’s older brother for his senior photos as well as their whole family. One of the highest compliments you can pay a photographer is asking them back over and over again. It is a blessing and […]


Cedar Valley Forest // Kayla and Tyler

I loved being part of this dreamy winter wedding styled shoot at Cedar Valley Forest. Miranda Burt contacted me and asked if I’d like to be the photographer for her shoot. I immediately jumped on the opportunity! This was the first time I’d be able to meet fellow vendors in the Kansas City area so […]


Shawnee Mission Park // Ella’s Senior Session

My first senior session in Kansas City was at Shawnee Mission Park. I had the pleasure of meeting Ella and her mom for an evening of shooting. Shawnee Mission Park is HUGE. You could explore this park all day. I highly recommend this park if you like doing families, seniors, or couples. There is such […]


Thornewood Castle Wedding // Kayla and Jerrott

Kayla and Jerrott’s fairy-tale wedding at Thornewood Castle was an absolute dream. This venue is a 500-year-old Tudor Gothic home known as the house that love built. I was IN AWE when I came on site. And, this venue is just 15 minutes from my home and I had no idea it even existed! Not […]


Rosehurst Garden Wedding // Tessa and Taylor

Tessa and Taylor’s Rosehurst Garden wedding in Spokane, WA was simply magnificent! This beautiful, fall October wedding had it all. Perfect couple, perfect weather, perfect day! Rosehurst Garden is one of my new favorite venues. The grounds included a covered terrace, multiple fire pits, outdoor tables and seating, dance-floor, and a bocce ball court. How cool is […]


A-Frame Elopement // Shalene and Jordan

Back in November, I had the opportunity to shoot a cozy A-frame cabin elopement near Mount Rainier. Lauren Neely was the genius and mastermind for the Love and Wild styled shoot. As a growing photographer, I’ve learned that styled shoots offer a wonderful stage to expand my skill set and invest in my photography business.  There was […]


Rainy Day Engagement // Lauren and Tony

Lauren and Tony’s PNW rainy day engagement shoot was the best representation of the PNW anyone could possibly imagine. We checked the weather a million times. Lauren and I thought about rescheduling because the forecast was cloudy, overcast, and called for showers off and on again. BUT we went for it! And then the showers […]
