let's do what 

Hi there!

I’m a portrait and wedding photographer based out of Traverse City, MI. I love capturing raw moments between people in a way that tells their unique story. My true inspiration has always come from the outdoors, and nature is often the 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, looking for Petoskey stones at the beach, or planning my next camping trip!

I have a Bachelor of Art in Photography
