I love to explore new and incredible places. Among my most memorable trips were cycling through Italy and walking across Scotland. I recently returned to Italy for my honeymoon, and I could spend a lifetime in Positano wandering the streets, eating pasta and drinking wine.

I LOVE dogs... Well, all animals really. My golden retriever and trusty sidekick, Charlie, constantly reminds me what unconditional love is and makes me laugh every single day. You can keep up with his goofy antics by following him on Instagram (@charlietheonemanparty), where he is far more popular than I am.

There are few things better than a good meal... Am I right?! I am always excited to try new restaurants and cuisines, and you will frequently find photos on my Instagram of dishes from my favorite dining adventures, along with some occasional attempts at home cooking.

I grew up in Paradise Valley, Arizona, and still visit my family (and photograph weddings!) out there regularly, but I absolutely love calling Chicago home. It's hard to beat summer in this city, and my husband, Adam, and I got married downtown last July.

what I do

There is something so incredible about being able to freeze a moment in time and to capture it in a way that brings you right back to that place and feeling each and every time you look at an image. After all is said and done, your wedding photos are one of the only things you will have to show for this amazing life experience, so it is important to select a photographer that is a great fit for you as a couple.

I like to make people laugh and I always try to build real connections with my couples, allowing me to bring out their personalities in my portraits. My goal is to capture all of the wonderful things you experience on your wedding day, while making sure you feel comfortable and are having fun at the same time. I want you to feel like a friend is photographing your wedding, not a stranger. So let's get to know each other!
