I don’t know where I would be without the classes, resources, workshops, and mentors that have educated me over the last 10 years since I first began taking photographs. Now, I see myself in so many new photographers as they navigate through the questions and confusion that come with mastering this beautiful art. Few things bring me as much joy as teaching others about photography and helping them grow into all that they can be!

I primarily use Adobe Lightroom to edit my images. I’ll use Photoshop for additional artistic retouching. I use VSCO and Cascade presets that are tweaked for my personal style. For iPhone pictures, I use the VSCOCam app.
In 2014, my two good friends got engaged and asked me to be their wedding photographer. I’d always loved wedding photography, but I never actually envisioned myself photographing weddings, so when they asked me, I initially said no! After more consideration, I agreed to it, photographed their wedding, and absolutely fell in love from there. Since then, I began second shooting for photographers and photographing more friends get married to add to my portfolio.
