A Loved Filled Saratoga Springs June Wedding Julia and Rob’s love surrounds one thing, Jesus, and what an absolute joy and honor it was to witness them coming together to confess both their love and devotion for not only each other, but for Him as well.

I had done it. I landed my “dream desk job”. I thought it paid well. I started with 4 weeks of vacation time. Paid holidays. Fun atmosphere. Room for growth. I had hit the jackpot. Then I had my first baby, and everything shifted… My priorities were now vastly different, the work environment was in […]

I wasn’t ready…but my future was.

A Humid June Boathouse Wedding I have a few Friday and Sunday weddings this year which I am so excited about. I love when my couples decide to switch it up and celebrate their day on a “nontraditional” weekday. However, I’m so incredibly thankful Ashley and Brandon decided on a Saturday. Unbeknownst to them when […]

A Picture Perfect June Wedding Day The feelings surrounding the first wedding of the season are hard to describe. Excitement Anxious Joyful Nervous It’s somehow all bottled up into one whole emotion I now know to expect come every season. When it first hit, I honestly thought I wasn’t cut out for this career, but […]

A cold November orchard wedding I was so excited to get this inquiry! Even though it didn’t end up being what they originally planned, it still turned out to be the perfect day. When Lysandra said her and Aaron were planning a small wedding at Rulfs Orchard, I couldn’t say yes fast enough! Aside from […]

A Rustic Masquerade Wedding If I’m being an optimist, one of the things I didn’t mind when it came to Covid and weddings was the fact that it allowed me to see some couples twice! I had a handful of couples who decided to move forward with their ceremony with a very small guest list […]

One thing you should know about me if you’re considering hiring me as your wedding photographer is, I don’t particularly enjoy Pinterest shot lists. What do I mean by that? Well chances are, you’ve seen some gorgeous wedding photos on Pinterest that you want to recreate in your own wedding images. What starts as a […]

Lesson #1 to any new photographers out there…ALWAYS show up to wedding days EARLY! My rule of thumb is to arrive no less than 30 minutes early to each wedding to account for traffic, weather, location scouting, direction mishaps, etc. This was one of those wedding days I’m so glad I set this rule for […]
