"Part adventurer, part grandma?" What does that mean? Well, it means that while I love traveling and trying new things, you're MOST likely going to find me with my nose in a book on a Friday night. Or watching The Office for the 46th time. I love used bookstores with creaky wood floors, Third Eye Blind (I know ALL the words to ALL the songs, kid you not), architecture (I'm kind of obsessed with house tours!), love letters, and chocolate covered pretzels. I am also 100% obsessed with my Australian Shepherd, Rory. And just like you, I'm planning a wedding, too!
part sarcastic, part sentimental
part adventurer, part grandma
part photographer, part writer
When I was a wee baby sophomore in college, I discovered wedding photography blogs. From that moment, I knew that's what I wanted to be. I've been shooting weddings and engagements since 2012, and what's kept me going for five years is the JOY and the rawness of wedding days. Shooting weddings combines everything I love: telling stories, photos, real, candid moments, and preserving history.
Some of my favorite memories involve sitting with my parents amid boxes and boxes of old, yellowing, black and white family photos. My mom and dad would tell me the stories of what was happening in each photo and who the faces were that I had never seen or didn't remember. That bonding experience with my parents and the things I got to learn about the people and places that I came from . . . that's what made me fall in love with photography. Now, my penchant for sappy love songs and love in general . . . that's what made me fall in love with WEDDING photography.
I went on my first trip abroad in March 2017, and I'm hooked! Ireland, Hawaii, Italy, Paris, & all 50 states are on my list!
Also, my husband is my travel buddy of choice -- he's AMAZING with directions!
Chocolate covered pretzels and M&Ms are my drugs of choice. And cookies.
I'm a member of the Book of the Month Club, and there's nothing I love more than smelling a new book.
I'm a book sniffer.
