So, as I reacquaint myself with my hometown (seriously, when did downtown Pensacola get so dang cute!), I’m thrilled to bring everything I learned during my travels abroad to the world of southern wedding photography. It should come as no surprise that my photography is inspired by the ocean, as I blend vivid blues and brilliant light to create art that is a celebration of beachside love stories. So, whether you’ve spent decades in Pensacola like I have, or you’re drawn to a destination wedding day unlike any other on our sugar-white shores, I’ll ensure your gallery feels as at home on the beach as I do.
When I’m not jumping into the waves with couples or documenting exquisite details on a wedding day, I’m probably crawling around on the floor with my pair of one-year-olds, enjoying a date night at The Wine Bar with my husband, or sneaking in some quality time with an audiobook after the babies head to bed.
But enough about me! It’s your story I want to hear! So, let’s dive right in. Tell me a bit about yourselves and the elegant celebration you’re planning, and I’ll be in touch in 48 hours or less with information about next steps. I know what a whirlwind wedding planning can be, and I can’t wait to walk beside you as a trusted resource and friend on your way to the best day of your life!

When the love of my life got down on one knee at the top of a lighthouse, I knew the adventure of a lifetime was about to begin. But I never could have guessed that adventure would include a string of coastal hometowns—including Corpus Christi, Jacksonville, and Okinawa—or giving birth to our IVF twins in the middle of a global pandemic half a world away from my entire family. Yeah. It was as crazy as it sounds! But sometimes our love stories are wild and unpredictable and a little bit messy…especially when you’re a military wife! Although I’d already been a photographer for years, it wasn’t until the events of 2020 and 2021 that I realized the true value of the moments I captured. They are the frozen moments in time that make the people far away feel close and pull us home to them again.
And we couldn’t be happier to be pulled back home! After three-and-a-half years in Okinawa, Ryan, the twins, and I have returned to our roots in Pensacola, where we hope to stay for a long, long time.
