Get to know me

I attended UWM for creative writing and art, but my passion for photography started well before college. When people ask me when I developed a love for photography, I can’t give them a concrete answer because as long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed taking photographs – elementary school field trips, my little brother’s soccer games, childhood pets – and my interest in the field grew as I did.

Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to have worked alongside and been trained by some great photographers in lighting, composition, and editing. I enjoy shooting many things but some of my favorites are weddings, music, and fashion. My favorite part of a wedding day is definitely getting to work with the couple on their posed shots. My love of fashion photography plays a part in posing as well as individual photos of the bride, her dress, and her accessories. It’s always a privilege to be able to spend such a special day with my couples and I’m so grateful for each and every one of them!

Hi SB Team,

Thank you so much!!! I am not sure how you managed to get these to us within a month of our wedding especially during your busiest season.

We are absolutely in love with all of the images. You captured our love perfectly and we will cherish these forever. I have no idea how we are going to decide which ones to purchase with the $50 credit. There are so many to choose from!!

You are all really the best around. Matt & Kelsea – you were the perfect duo for our day. You captured so many special moments without us even realizing you were there. Thank you for dealing with all of our crazy friends and family.

Thank you again (x million 🙂 )


Kind words


Everything was absolutely PERFECT! I don’t even know how we got so lucky all across the board – everything was perfect. We are so glad to hear you had a good time at our wedding – that is exactly what we wanted to hear! I was so nervous for so long that no one would have a good time and honestly, it was just the best! We enjoyed working with the two of you very much! We’re kind of sad it’s over!!

We cannot WAIT to see our pictures! The sneaks we saw throughout the day just look gorgeous and I can’t wait to see them touched up a bit and to pick our favorites for further editing. Seriously, so excited!

Thank you for the print credit! We will be sure to take full advantage of that!! And the offer for a free session in the future! YES! We will definitely have to take you up on that!! That is way above and beyond what we expected and are so thankful.

Thank you again so so so much!!
