Heyo!

I'M NOT SURE HOW TO WRITE THIS WITHOUT IT SOUNDING LIKE A BAD DATING AD, SO HERE WE GO!

 

I AM A PORTRAIT, ELOPEMENT, AND destination WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN the crazy flat plains of CENTRAL ILLINOIS. I began my career in photography as a clueless high school graduate, and have built my business from the ground up as a self-taught creative. 5 years ago i WAS BITTEN BY THE TRAVEL BUG and now THERE's NO STOPPING ME in my quest for adventure. I FLEW TO LONDON SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND IT REMAINS MY FAVORITE TRIP TO DATE, BUT THAT'S A STORY FOR ANOTHER TIME.

 

i gravitate toward CANDID, UNPOSED, AND ROMANTIC moments. the big moments, the small moments, and the moments in between. I thrive on raw emotion, madly in love couples, and public displays of affection. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR THE COOKIE-CUTTER WEDDING EXPERIENCE WITH TRADITIONAL POSING AND LACK OF intimate SNUGGLES, THEN WE MAY NOT BE A GOOD FIT. AND THAT'S ALRIGHT! if you're into booty grabs, dancing in public, and peeing your pants laughing, then i'm your person. i'm a great third wheel, i promise!
