Memories are intended to be remembered, talked about, and hold a special place in your heart. Which is why saving your moments inspire me as a photographer.

I am a wedding and portrait photographer who keeps things light, fun, and full of energy. I’m based out of Springfield, Illinois however love traveling all over the midwest and beyond. If you don’t like to laugh, then I’m not the photographer for you! Finding your most authentic smiles, giggles, and sheer love for who you are surrounded by needs to come from your joy within. My job is simply to entice your joy out and capture it, before you even know I snapped a photo. Those un-posed, laugh out loud, emotional moments are most likely the ones you will fall for over and over again for years to come. 

I’m so thankful you stopped by for a visit!

so thankful

I love home decorating, golden hour, mint chocolate chip ice cream, Double Stuffed OREOS, Zumba (to work off the ice cream and Oreos), laughing until I cry, all sports, snuggling with my pups, and I saved the best for last…Hearing the sweetest words my daughter could say, “I Love You”. Best sound ever!

To me, wedding photography is way more than just taking images. I want your day to be better and even more memorable because I am there serving you and capturing all of the memories that are being made. I'm invested in YOU as much as you are invested in me!

My own love is wrapped up in my hubby of 10 years, Josh, our spunky daughter, Harper, and our two furbabies, Roscoe & Kodi

my own love...

learn about the wedding experience!

My business is all about love, joy, and the experience you have when we spend time together. If this all sounds like something you want to experience in your own life, I would feel honored and blessed to capture your memories. Thank you for stopping by! Grab a coffee or even a milkshake (another one of my faves) and enjoy looking around. 

love, joy and the experience...
