My clients truly become lifelong friends, and are the reason I do what I do.

When I am not photographing weddings, you can find me painting, thrift shopping with my grandma, going out for Mexican food (its my favorite!), I also LOVE to go to the movies, play cards with my little cousins, and to read! 

FUN FACTS

Establishing a consistent photography style is so important for many reasons but one specifically, once you are beginning to monetize a photography business is to gain trust with your clients. If a client knows exactly what they are going to receive and how their photos are going to look consistently, there is a heightened level […]

I have read SO MANY books over the years filled with business advice, things we should do/think, how to sell, how to market, how to craft a client experience, etc. but you know what the one thing that you don’t really read too much about is? To be fearless.  If I could only tell you […]

I photographed my first wedding when I was 15. I went on to go to James Madison University, where I got a Bachelors degree in IT. During my time at college, my business took over more than I had ever imagined or planned for. I was photographing weddings every weekend, getting published in magazines and newspapers, working for our yearbook, and so, much more. As a result, I found myself and my purpose in life. I am blessed to have learned at a young age that documenting people in what I was meant to do. So after I graduated, I made the decision to not pursue the IT field, and I took this business by storm. Wedding photography is my full time career. and so I work every day to make this experience better and better for you.

Standard mentoring sessions are:
1.5 hour & $145

can be in person or over Skype



I started out when I was 15. I was very inexperienced and honestly booking clients or messing up terrified me. I mean I was talking about documenting people's WEDDINGS, a ONCE IN A LIFETIME thing. I feared I wasn't enough for the industry. What I've learned though is that being young and new is actually an advantage if you let it be. You can do things your own way, who said you had to do it the way 'she' does? Believe in yourself, you are destined for great things, and I am ready to sit with you and make you a gameplan as to how we are going to get there. 

Investing in your business is an investment in you.
