I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Intermedia from Western Michigan University located in Kalamazoo, MI (yes, it's a real place). Throughout my time in college and exploring the world, I was able to refine my style and craft into a solid business all the way from Michigan to Alaska.
For six years and counting, I've found endless joy in capturing the special moments and memories of others. Weddings captivate my heart in ways I can't fully explain. Having the opportunity to engage in the love between man & woman and celebrate in the first day of their married lives together is an honor I will never take for granted. Marriage is a sacred act, so to be chosen to document such a marking is a mighty privilege.
My passion and love for photography first started with analog and alternative process photography. Working with my hands, developing my own film, printing in the darkroom, experimenting with hand-coated emulsions and wet-plates... it's the thrill and challenge I seek as an artist. Along with my mission to preserve and document amazing life moments for my clients, I also have a desire to educate others in the traditional ways of photography and keeping alternative processes alive.
Traveling and adventuring is also another passion of mine! I love to explore new places, go off the beaten path, and just spend quiet time in nature. I love hiking, running, biking, and doing yoga - anything to be outside! Get to know me a little more and see more of my adventure photos on Instagram and my Travel page!
Overall, my ultimate goal is to glorify God with the gifts He has blessed me with and to serve others in this life. I would love to work with you, tell your story, capture you love and share our lives. What do you say?
