I grew up in an Air Force family and moved every few years. Fairytales and fantasy novels were my escape. I never really grew out of that stage of my life. From Disney princesses to Grimm's Fairytales and even Lord of the Rings, my life and dreams were influenced by fantasy. I believe in true love and hope in the darkest of times. As a creative, I looked for ways to tell the same sort of stories. I think it's why I'm so drawn to photography because I can tell true stories of beauty, love, and hope. I began my photography career in 2008 when I picked up a 35mm film SLR and started taking online classes. From there I worked at a local studio where I did sports photography, portrait sales, printing, and graphic design. Now, I use my 12 years of professional photography experience to beautifully document couples' fairytale weddings.
