I am a free spirit, spontaneous adventurer, fine art photographer, animal snuggler and enthusiastic wife and mother. I adore beautiful things (guilty), but measure my worth on the healthiness of my soul. I'm a former professional Historian; a profession that impacts the way I photograph each wedding - as a piece of History. In another life I would have loved to have been a comedian, or a therapist - but I like to think I incorporate both of those skills into my work as a photographer!
I met my husband on Facebook (it's true) and have been with him for over 13 years. I received my Masters in Historic Preservation, we moved all over NC, dated for 4 years and got married on a warm September day in 2010 on the banks of a river in Charleston, SC. We have two beautiful daughters, Ireland and Sunday, who fill our days with laughter and perspective. (Because of them, I always have a soft spot for mommas on wedding days!) My self-indulgences include podcasts, romance novels, red lipstick, crime shows, interior design, and Pepsi.
One of my favorite challenges is when a client tells me they aren't photogenic and I think to myself just how much I'm going to prove them wrong. Countless couples in my galleries once told me the exact same thing :)
I grew up and still live in rural North Carolina, but travel frequently and extensively for work and life. I would choose an open field, a mountain top, or a beautiful view over city-living - any day of the week & twice on Sundays.
