ready to advocate for peace on your wedding day

Photographer in Memphis

(Whatever that looks like to you)

The wedding norms just don't cut it for me, and if you're reading this, then they don't cut it for you either. Let's get creative. Let's cut out all the frou frou wedding details that hold no meaning for you. Let's leave the state — the country, even. Let's figure out what kind of celebration is the most YOU and go from there. Let's capture photos that you'll love forever, having no regrets whatsoever that you did your day the way you wanted to.  Deal?

P.S. I am based in Memphis, TN (and love living here!) but I travel anywhere and everywhere and am usually looking for reasons to get out of the South. ;)

Tell me the ideas that you've been afraid to bring to the table.

Originally, I moved to Memphis to study music. I have my Bachelor's in Modern Music and wrote, lead, and performed with my own band around town for almost 10 years. 

I've performed all over the world and self- produced 4 EP's of my own. I'm hoping there's a full length album in my future. :) I'm a Jazz lover, but if I'm writing and playing my own music, I create a lot of Cinematic Blues Rock. I love music and it will always run through my veins. 

Photography was a complete accident, but I am so grateful it happened to me. 

I am a world traveler to the CORE. I'm still working on a long list of places I want to go, but some of my favorites have been Sydney AU, Istanbul, Greece, and of course, my second home: Kenya. Dylan and I also played a gig at a pub in Dublin once...and it was the BEST.

Every August (pre-COVID), I spend time in Nairobi with some of my favorite people who I am honored to call family. 

Every wedding and couples shoot makes me love my husband Dylan more. There's something about helping to cultivate love and feeling while I work with a couple, that just makes me fall in love with my own husband more than I thought I could. 

I married my absolute best friend. We fell in love overnight after years of playing music together, traveling for shows, and just being artists in Memphis. I can't believe I get to be his wife and go on all of these crazy adventures with him. He's my person, so I strive to encourage everyone out there to find theirs.

My very first wedding was in Connecticut in the Fall of 2019, and I was so terrified. But I remember texting my husband a few hours into the day and saying "I love this. I could do this for a long time." I just really love people. And being a photographer of life — it's the best!

All I ask is to be friends during our time together. I want my clients to be able to trust me, and if you can't, then I'm probably not the one for you and that's okay. These moments don't happen twice — you have to have a photographer that has your back. If you're ready for that to be me, reach out.

Fun facts

Let's do something Different.

I've photographed lovers exchanging vows everywhere from the courthouse to a cemetery — for real. I absolutely cherish each wedding equally because no matter how big it is, where it's located, or what the details are, it's meaningful to the people getting married and that's literally all that matters to me. I can't wait to hear about what's going to make your day special and how I can support you in  making it happen.

Give me as MUCH detail as possible! Your hopes and dreams for this session, international adventure, or sprint to the courthouse. Tell me what you need and why you think we are perfect for each other!

PLEASE NOTE: I do not photograph at venues with a history of slavery or servitude, or venues whose styles celebrate the aforementioned events.
