I have known Brittany since her son, Alexander was born. I have gotten to photograph him and watch him grow right before my camera. I have enjoyed so many times getting to catch up with Brittany and watching her grow as a mom. I was elated when she told me she had met someone who […]

Kelsey and JT are so cute together! I have known them both for a while but I got to photograph them once before during a family session and I just knew instantly they were perfect for each other. I was ecstatic when they got engaged and asked me to photograph their wedding! JT proposed to […]

I felt instantly comfortable with Sarah and Justin after their first few poses. They told me they were awkward in front of a camera but Justin pulled her close and they instantly starting giggling through it all. We explored downtown Springfield first and then made our way to a gorgeous open field at sunset. I […]

Every year, my parents and their friends like to escape to Florida for part of the winter and every year, my “honorary cousin” (our dads are best friends), Kelly and I just show up to take advantage of their house! Kelly and her fiancĂ© (now husband!), Tyler have been engaged for a few years now […]

I became instant friends with GiAnna and Austin when I met them. They were both in a wedding I photographed this summer (*shoutout Lauren and Zach!*) and I just loved getting to know them! GiAnna told me she had hoped a proposal was coming but would get ahold of me when it did! Little did […]

Last year, I got to photograph so many adorable, engaged couples! Engagement sessions are my absolute favorite sessions because most times, it is the first time couples have been in front of the camera together. Usually, they tell me they are nervous and they feel like they are awkward together, but that is my favorite […]

2020 will for sure be a year that none of us will ever forget. For me, I know I will never, ever forget any of my 2020 couples. They worked so hard, defied all odd, changed dates, changed venues, shortened guest lists, gave out sanitizer and masks, ignored all of the negative to put love […]

Karley and Jimmy had the most gorgeous New Year’s Eve wedding day! The entire day was so relaxed and their friends and family were so welcoming. I loved spending the morning with the girls as they got dolled up and ready for the big night. Karley’s adorable niece, Gentry kept everyone entertained with her cuteness. […]

Kristy and Derek were forced to reschedule their summer wedding for the winter and when covid was still a threat for their winter date, they were forced to postpone once more. They decided to have a small intimate ceremony to finally make their marriage official and it could not have been more special. We go […]

Rachel and Craig’s winter wedding day was chilly, but oh so perfect! Both of them are so kind and were surrounded by the sweetest family and friends. Rachel did such an amazing job planning a beautiful day. Her winter colors complimented the church they got married in and the feel of the day was so […]
