Lover of all things weddings
Hi! Nice to meet you. I'm a 28 year old natural light wedding photographer capturing love stories in Arkansas and beyond! I've been shooting weddings professionally for almost 10 years (wow that sounds insane to say!) My style is influenced by my love of color, natural light and authentic love. I use a good mix of documentary style + giving as much direction as a couple needs so that they don't feel awkward for any of those posed traditional type shots that their parents will want for their walls. I love when clients become friends by the time the wedding day rolls around and everything just feels so effortless, and not like a stranger playing paparazzi on one of those most important days of your life! I try my best to bring every couple out of their shells, crack stupid jokes and tell crazy stories to make them laugh and forget about being nervous in front of the camera.
