let's do what 

Hi there!

I’m a portrait and wedding photographer based out of Grand Rapids, MI. I love capturing raw moments between beautiful people in beautiful places (yes, you are all beautiful!). My true inspiration has always come from the outdoors, and nature is the often backdrop of my photography work. 

I started photographing weddings in 2017 and I have been hooked ever since! Scroll down to learn more!!

I Love Camping + Hiking

in my free time i am most likely hiking around lake michigan or planning my next camping trip!

I adopted pepper from the detroit humane society in may of 2017. we've been inseparable ever since. 

I have a cat named Pepper

I'm a big fan of reading or listening to podcasts

I am often driving across the state for various photoshoots. My go-to podcasts are anything true crime related (shoutout to my favorite murder!) and i also really like listening to audiobooks.

when i am not taking photos, I am an interior-exterior painter in grand rapids. I fell in love with painting after my sophomore year of college and plan to keep doing it for as long as possible!

I paint houses!

I have a Bachelor of Art in Photography

I graduated from Grand valley state university in the spring of 2020 with my degree in photography.
