WITH A HAMILTON SONG IN MY HEART AND A CAMERA IN MY HAND, I FLOOD GALLERIES WITH WARMTH, LIGHT, AND BREATHTAKING EMOTION. AND BY ADDING A SPRINKLE OF SPONTANEITY AND ADVENTURE TO EVERY SESSION OR WEDDING DAY, I CREATE SOMETHING THAT MAKES MY HEART SKIP A BEAT EVERY TIME I SIT DOWN TO EDIT A FRESH SET OF PHOTOS. 

Honestly, though, thanks to the unbelievable landscapes of Wisconsin and Minnesota -- and to the kick-ass couples who call these states home -- it would be nearly impossible not to!

Since I first snagged my mom’s camera for impromptu BFF photoshoots and amateur landscape photography adventures, I’ve had a special love for the magic of moments frozen in time. And now, equipped with a graphic design degree and years of professional photography experience, I have a deeply rooted understanding of color and balance that enables me to deliver artful images you’ll adore. But what I’m most thrilled to offer is an experience you’ll treasure as much as the photos you hang in your living room. By building a sincere friendship from day one, I’m able to make your wedding photography experience -- from the first “What’s up!” to the final delivery” -- effortless and stress-free.  

When I’m not kicking it with couples, you’re just as likely to spot me headed into church with my best friends as you are to hear us quoting Bridesmaids over brunch! You might also spot my husband and I zipping by on our motorcycle to grab Dairy Queen...then headed home to snuggle up with our chocolate lab, Belle, for a movie night. But no matter where I am or what I’m doing, I’m always looking forward to my next adventure as a photographer! 

So, whether you’re getting married in the midwest or beyond, let’s raise a toast (to the groom, to the groom, to the groom, to the groom, to the bride!), and let’s tell your one-of-a-kind love story through dynamic, adventurous images you’ll love just as much on your 50th anniversary as you will on your first!

Being a bride I’ve been through the process of finding the photographer that fits my personality and style that I’d like to see for my photos has been a stressful process but don’t you worry! I got you covered.

I’ve always had a passion to shoot weddings and capture people’s love but to make it even more of a passion my dream is to shoot destination weddings some day! It’s a definitely story for each couple and why not capture their perfect day in a beautiful place outside their home. I’ve compiled my top 3 places that are my dream destinations for weddings.

I’m so excited to share a new and exciting thing that I did for my business. I’ve always had a struggle with finding the right colors, branding etc that matches me. With being a graphic designer full time it’s definitely hard but when I came across these two beautiful ladies at With Grace & Gold they changed my life and my business and I can’t thank them enough! I’m excited to share some of my favorite pieces.
