who am i?

 

I am a very casual, goofy person, who thrives on connection. At age 21, I have shot multiple weddings, countless portraits, and loved every second of it. My love for photography began through a good friend and mentor. I can recall the chills I got looking at a picture he had taken in Banff, Canada of the pine trees, and I knew that I needed more. I spent many hours in my local coffee shop studying camera brands, how they work, and then pulled the trigger on my first Canon Rebel T5i. I was out everyday taking pictures of friends and animals and buildings, just trying to create the art that I saw in my head. Eventually, with time, that art came. I began to create images that made me and my friends go "wow". Those ideas and looks were finally being translated into pictures. This hobby turned into a passion as I began to do more than just “take pictures”. I began capturing stories. I started looking at photography as a sacred means to preserve people. I noticed that it no longer became about me. It is about something much bigger. My mom lost her battle to cancer my senior year of high school, in 2016. One of my biggest regrets and a deep motivation I have is my lack of pictures with her. Looking back at the past, there is nothing that lasts like genuine photographs. That simple truth has pushed me to photograph every thing in my life, from friends to home decor to other people. I want to make sure that you’re able to look at the images we create and remember. Not the awkward posing instructions, or loud aunt debbie trying to take over the photo session on your wedding day (everyone knows and loves aunt debbie) but the dirty jokes you whisper to your person during the in-between. The honest reactions of family and friends, and of course the reality that y’all are forever. wow.

My love life

I am engaged to my best friend Abbey! We are getting married August 4th, 2019 (WOWZA). She has taught me so so much about love and patience and the importance of not taking yourself to seriously. A lot of my inspiration comes from Abigail, so don’t be surprised if she tags along with us on our first coffee date (she’s my better half anyways).

We love a few things;

  • Jesus

  • coffee

  • hiking

  • laughing

  • art

Niagara Falls
