Kansas City wedding photographer for the adventurous bride who loves life, lives in the moment, and embraces the memories.
I travel, I love outdoor concerts and I’m completely addicted to Chipotle.
History and traditions are my thing. My family and I go to Breckenridge every year in February to enjoy the slopes and a microbrewery. It’s something my husband and I have done since we were dating and now we take our kids.
If I’m not skiing, I’d prefer the sand between my toes and will never forget the time we snorkeled the reefs of Grand Cayman to find a tiny baby octopus living inside a shell.
I want to vacation to Germany, the Greek Islands and visit all the cathedrals in Italy.
I have a deep rooted love for film, natural light and vintage cameras. You’ll see these things throughout my home, telling the story of who we are on our walls and incorporated into my work. I love adventures and a camera is always in tow.
My childhood dream was to work with Rolling Stone Magazine. I obtained a Photojournalism degree and moved to downtown Chicago. Chicago is where I first started my business and I love to get back there any chance I get.
I love a quiet morning with a latte and a good read.
A good conversation over an IPA is my idea of going out.
We have dance parties in the living room, camp out in the back yard (so I can sneak out to my comfy bed), go to the beach as often as possible and we’re fixing up a place at the lake on the off weekends that I’m decorating with film portraits of the kids.
I love Summer nights under the stars at outdoor concerts or Winter evenings cozied up by the fire with a good movie.
We have three amazing, gorgeous children that make my world spin round.
Our wedding portrait and family portraits hang on our walls and taught me that our images become more endearing with time. I love walking by these portraits from the past and the feeling they give me.
I’m often asked what gear I use or love the most and why. So, here’s what’s in the bag at every wedding or session I photograph and for the record, I’m a Canon girl.
On a wedding day, I’m typically using two cameras, both Canon 5D III’s. I also have the original 5D for a back up.
My favorite lens on a wedding day includes the 85MM 1.8 and the 70-200MM 2.8L, the 100MM 2.8L for rings and other details and, the 24-70MM II 2.8L is on my second camera most the day.
I teach a class on how to operate your DSLR camera and off-camera flash techniques.
