I adore witnessing the love between people and documenting that love. It's what I want to photograph. My shooting style is a combination of fine art photography and candid photojournalism with an emphasis on using light creatively and capturing genuine emotion. I've photographed some of the most tender and joyful moments the lives of my clients in the 10 years I've been a wedding and portrait photographer and I love every minute of it! My approach is all about keeping things fun and lighthearted while we work together to create beautiful photographs that capture your relationship and personalities.
Personal stuff about me? OK! Born & raised in Grand Rapids, MI. I'm a mother to two amazing kids who inspire me to get up everyday and chase the crazy, amazing dream of living a creative life filled with love and art! I spend what little free time I have, hiking our beautiful MI woods, sleeping under the stars and loving on my huge extended family.
I've been an Artist for as long as I can remember but first discovered photography when my Grandfather gave me his vintage film SLR camera as a high school graduation gift. I studied classic film photography classes at GRCC and fell in love with everything about it! I went on to complete my BA in Photography at the University of Arizona. I've been a professional photographer since 2007 and have photographed over 250 weddings.
