I always thought I’d end up as a National Geographic photographer chasing down wildlife (a la Tiger King), but I think my job now is way better.
My journey to becoming a wedding photographer was a tad accidental. It began in 2014 when I had contacted a local wedding photographer to be a subject in a project on small business ownership. After I completed my project, she offered me a side job helping out at her photo sessions. What started as an easy minimum wage job grew rapidly, and two years later, she had me managing her company nearly full time. By 2017, I had dreams of leaving my small town in Missouri and moving somewhere coastal that following year.
SURPRISE! I pitched this to her, and she fired me instead. But this turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me, because a year later, I was flying everywhere to document weddings across the country, and even internationally, which took me to Nicaragua, D.C, Arizona, and Texas, just to name a few.
It’s been a wild ride, but all of these experiences have made me the kick-ass wedding photographer you see in front of you.
I’m an enneagram type 1, an ENFJ, and an empath. I’ll make sure your timeline is organized so you get the most photos from your day, but I’ll also totally cry happy tears during your first dance.
