I am a destination wedding and lifestyle photographer based out of south east...
While I call the Atlanta area home... you can find me traveling up to the mountains to my cabin for a weekend away or up and down the east coast for work.I have a big heart for new york, charleston, boston, cape cod, nantucket, and the hamptons. Though I love the east coast I make my way out west a handful of times every year.
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 was something so amazing about having hustle and bustle in the everyday life and allowing myself to escape to the country when I needed an escape that brings so much 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 timeless moments and timeless memories for you & your family for years to come.
