the Portfolio


Photography is not just a profession for me; it's a passion that I feel deeply honored to share with you as I document the remarkable moments that make up your extraordinary life. I approach every celebration with a photojournalistic perspective, aiming to capture the essence of your day with light, true-to-life, film-inspired images.

I am best known for making my clients feel comfortable in front of the camera and working with my clients on a photography timeline that allows them to  slow down and enjoy their day. I have a soft spot for handwritten vows and those raw, unfiltered smiles shared with your loved ones.

My days are spent with a cup of coffee in reach while editing luxurious weddings, and my nights are likely spent day dreaming of upcoming travels. Originally from Charlottesville, VA, I made Richmond my home in 2021, but you'll often find me on the road. I can't wait to see where your journey takes me!

the timeline

how it all began

living with a camera in hand SINCE 2011


My love for documenting stories started in 2011 when I got my first camera for Christmas to take photos during an upcoming trip to Costa Rica. Little did I know that tiny purple point-and-shoot camera was the start of something special! 


Spent my years in school doing photoshoots with my friends in random fields and pretty locations around Charlottesville. The thought of being a photographer hadn’t crossed my mind yet- I simply loved finding beautiful compositions and making someone feel confident in front of the camera!


Believe it or not, I didn’t start off photographing weddings but actually events on my college’s campus. I bought my first camera and spent months deep diving into the technology behind the camera. My camera started to become attached at my hip! 


I dipped my toe into wedding photography and it all came together- my love for documentary stories, beautiful compositions, and making someone feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera. And now here we are today!
