I'm not a regular photographer, I'm a cool photographer. JK but really, I want to connect with you and gain your trust that the investment you're making is worth it.

I started teaching myself photography in 2015 as a hobby and creative outlet to pursue outside of my full-time job at a marketing agency.

In those first few years, I soaked up absolutely every bit of knowledge I could. I watched YouTube videos, read countless blogs, and took a LOT of pictures. I started with landscape photography but quickly learned that my passion was working with people - more importantly, capturing emotions between people. 

Here's a little more about my background:

Started to teach myself photography 

Watched hundreds of YouTube videos and read ALL the blogs

Photographed my first paid sessions 

built self-confidence and believed this was something I could seriously pursue

Photographed bridal portraits, engagement sessions and family sessions

Attended or served as a bridesmaid in too many weddings to count

Photographed my sister-in-law’s engagement session in Pawley’s Island – one of my favorite shoots to-date!

Attended Anchor and Veil workshop to learn from the best of the best

Photographed 9 weddings as primary and second shooter

Photographed 15+ engagement sessions, styled shoots, and bridal portrait sessions

GOT MARRIED!

Shot 25 engagement, maternity and lifestyle sessions

Photographed 8 weddings as primary and second shooter (COVID affected this a bit)

Photographing 13 weddings

Luckily I had a handful of friends and family members who
were recently engaged and let me practice on (you da real MVPs).

I learned a lot, and am still learning every day. I've dedicated
years to honing my skills in photography because I absolutely love
it. It brings me so much joy to capture special moments between people (or sometimes between people + dogs).

So if you're looking for a photographer who is fully invested in YOU and providing the absolute best images possible, send me a note and we can chat more!
