For the past nine years, I’ve been photographing weddings in Austin, Texas, spending hours and days with couples and families at their most emotional moments — happy, anxious, joyful, nostalgic, excited, verklempt. I started my business as a newlywed and quit my day job after two years to do this full-time. Now, photographing people is all that I do.
Honing skills as a wedding photographer taught me how to identify an emotion — even an underlying one in a subject — and capture it honestly. This is what I strive to do in all of my work now, especially headshots, where a single photo must distill a personality into one quick glance, and branding, where someone scrolling on social media needs to feel a connection or a curiosity about who you are and what you bring to the table. I hope that my work has made you feel something, and that it spoke to you enough to want to reach out and contact me.
I’m a huge bookworm and read over 100 books a year. I’m addicted to lip balm and coconut-milk ice cream. I like unnaturally colored hair (eggplant purple being my favorite at the moment). My celebrity crush is Richard Armitage as Mr. Thornton. (All my BBC-loving friends, you know…)
Some of my favorite reads of 2019:
Sounds Like Titanic by Jessica Chiccehito Hindeman
On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
Severance by Ling Ma
I’d love to meet you for a cup of tea to chat about your headshot, branding, editorial, or wedding. Or even just about books. Let’s start talking!
