The lady behind the lens..
I’m a twenty-something gal who loves Jesus with all her heart and has the privilege of calling St. Louis, Missouri my home. If I’m not out and about, camera in hand.. I’m snuggled up at home with my husband, daughter and our two big pups in South City. I love spending time outdoors, supporting local businesses or sipping a good beer on the porch of my home. I’m passionate about my family and friends, Ted Drewes frozen custard, music, dogs, crime podcasts and the goodness in people.
Over these past 10 years, I have dedicated so much of my heart to this beautiful business of mine and the amazing clients/friends that make it all possible. I grew up looking at old dusty photographs tucked away in albums at my Grandparent’s home. It was then that I truly understood the importance of photography. The thought of someone’s great great grandchild stumbling across and falling in love with a photograph I took makes me giddy. Most importantly, it is what drives me.
Where are you located and do you travel?
St. Louis, Missouri. But always open to traveling wherever you are!
What is your approach?
For me personally, my goal is and always will be to tell your story in the most authentic way I possibly can. I love to take a documentary style approach to every session and especially on wedding days. I focus on human connection. That’s the good stuff.
How do you deliver your photos?
I always deliver my photos via an online gallery. I find it’s the simplest and most convenient way for my clients to receive their photos and share them with family and friends!
How do I print my photos?
I do have a professional print lab set up through my online galleries. So you can order prints directly through me and highly recommend that! But I’d be happy to send a print release if you have a lab you personally like.
How long until I get my photos back?
For regular shoots, my turn around time is 2-4 weeks. For weddings, 6-8 weeks. I pride myself on delivering the best photos for my clients! After all, editing is an art and good art is never rushed.
What happens if the weather doesn’t cooperate?
Living in St. Louis, I’m no stranger to crazy weather. Sadly, if it does happen to downpour, blizzard, or tornado outside I recommend rescheduling for another day. Granted on wedding days you can’t exactly reschedule due to unfortunate weather. In those circumstances, we just work with what the good Lord gives us!
Okay, but what if we are super awkward in front of the camera?
Aren’t we all a little awkward? I’ll never just throw you in front of my camera and expect you to do all the work. (Unless that’s your style..) I of course give direction when needed but ultimately, always leave room for your unique personality to shine through!
Can I bring my dog?
The answer is and always will be, yes.
