About

Having been with my husband for 16 years, married for 8 of those, I can promise you it is the most incredible experience having everyone you love together in one place to celebrate you. Aside from the births of my kids, it is the best day ever. And being a mom has made me appreciate photography even more since I especially know how fleeting time is and how important it is to have visual memories of those you love dearly. A little more about me, Drew and I met in art history class, while I was getting my BFA in Photography, and he was finishing up undergrad. And we’ve been inseparable ever since. After 7 amazing years living in teeny apartments in Brooklyn, we made the move back to our hometown of Saint Louis to start a family. Our little Dorothy [Dot] is now a hilarious and sweet five year old, and we welcomed our baby George over two years ago.

I am an INFJ. An extroverted introvert, depending on the crowd. I’d much rather talk about your deepest thoughts / hopes / fears than make small talk. I am a minimalist. I love interior design and am obsessed with organization. My word for 2020 is analog – newspapers, magazines, books, crafts, bullet journaling. I have a love/hate relationship with social media and I’d like to cut my phone usage in half. My love language is quality time.

I know it’s a big decision you’re making, since these photos will become your lasting memories from the day, and are a big portion of your budget. And I also know that I am not the perfect photographer for everyone. So the more details you can share with me when you first reach out, the better. I’d love to know how you found me, what you’re looking for in a photographer, and more importantly, how you plan to take back your wedding day to make it your own.
