I'm a rough around the edges, Marine Corps Veteran and a hopeless romantic. I can be strong-willed and resilient; yet, goofy and down-to-earth. I take joy in capturing love stories of all kinds and I would love to tell yours!
I am a Virginian born and raised. I married my high school crush, Alex, who coincidently also found himself in the Marine Corps. You can find us either deep in a Netflix binge (Jessica Jones being a recent favorite) or getting our bellies full of good grub. Coastal Flats is a special occasion indulgence!
I often try to pinpoint when my love for photography began and I always go back to middle school when I would pose my siblings in front of a quilt and take their picture. I studied film photography as a teenager and once digital cameras came out, I always had one on me. When Alex and I were dating, he got stationed in California. I started doing portrait work that summer to fill the void of his absence.
Shortly after, I began shooting weddings and the rest was history. I was in love. The excitement and energy surrounding each wedding day is so special and makes the hopeless romantic in me all too giddy!
Grab a glass of wine and stay a while. Shoot me a love note, tell me your love story, I'd love to help you share it!
A warm breakfast at Cody's in my favorite city, San Diego, with my favorite guy. Any view of the ocean or mountains. Wearing the same scent of perfume since I was 15; Chance by Chanel. Bold statement necklaces as my only piece of jewelry other than my wedding set. The sound of my husband's laugh and snorts of my French Bulldog, Dobby.
I met Alex when I was 14. We grew a friendship and he became the guy that answered my late night phone calls and instant messages making me laugh to forget my boy troubles. I grew a love for him back then, but he was older and I always felt like I was just a little sister to him. He graduated two years ahead of me and we grew apart. Seven years later, I got a message in my inbox asking me to have breakfast with him. That was something we did together everyday in high school. We've been inseparable ever since.
