I ride that struggle bus on the regular, but I believe that positivity is a choice and I've come to find that my happiness depends on being able to find the good in any situation, even if some days I have to look a little harder.
What I am however, is a crazy dog mom who's entirely too obsessed with Taylor Swift and my rose-colored glasses are so firmly in place that you'd think my life's nothin' but sunshine and daisies.
Spoiler alert: it's not.
The most important thing in my life is my Pomeranian, Gabby. I know, I know, you were expecting me to say your wedding was the center of my life buuuut I'm not that much of a suck-up.
...like it takes a LOT to ruffle my feathers but I have spreadsheets to organize my spreadsheets.
I'm level-headed and will offer you a shoulder to cry on and then a list of potential solutions when you feel like the light at the end of the tunnel is actually an oncoming train.
I get excited before every wedding. I cry watching your dad try to hold back tears when he hands you off to your fiancé.
I know all the words to the party songs and will rap them right along with you at the reception.
You can count on me to bring the energy (& all the lame jokes), so know that when you hire me, I'm on your team. Whether that means I'm your personal cheerleader when you need a pick-me-up or if that means I pull aside someone who's giving you grief and have a nice little come to Jesus talk with them, I've got your back.
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
― Elliott Erwitt
It's okay to disagree with me, I mean I can't force you to be right.
Photography started as a creative outlet for me, an escape from my 9-5 where I flexed my left-brain (I won't bore you with the details but basically I'm a techie who likes numbers). I discovered my passion for photographing love in all its raw forms so I started shooting weddings on the weekends while using my big-girl job to pay my bills.
I wanted to turn my side-hustle into my main-squeeze so after years of burning the candle at both ends, I took the plunge and quit my job. Gosh, I was scared. Leaving a guaranteed income to chase my dreams was probably the biggest risk I've ever taken but the greatest risks come with the grandest rewards. I think life's too short to not do what you love and now I have SO much fun.
