I am a destination wedding and editorial photographer based out of south east...
While I call the Atlanta area home... you can find me traveling up to the mountains in North Georgia to my cabin for a weekend away or in Charleston enjoying the beach.
I have a big heart for New York too, the street art, musicians, nightlife, and history inspires me so much - a stroll through the West Village will forever be one of my favorite things to do.
Though I love the east coast I make my way out west a handful of times every year.
While I was raised in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Georgia I quickly fell in love with the city down the street, Atlanta. There's something so amazing about the liveliness of the city and allowing myself to escape to the country when I need an escape. It brings peace to my soul.
I found myself at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta. Here I discovered my love for film photography and design. I photograph all of my weddings with medium format film cameras, 35mm film cameras, and digital cameras in the evening for those super fun dancing photos that allow us to relive it all.
My approach to weddings is with an artistic, fine art, and yet documentary approach. I strive to preserve raw moments and timeless memories for you + your family for years and years to come.
