I'm so excited that you're considering me as your photographer. I love this job! I've been photographing weddings since 2006. I started when I was 20 years old. Which means I've done over 377 weddings (I counted)! I've photographed weddings all over the United States, including Alaska, Atlanta, Charleston, Idaho, North Carolina, Seattle, South Carolina, Washington DC, and even overseas in Thailand. I am passionate about capturing genuine moments and creating beautiful portraits inspired by light, composition, and environment.
I grew up in Charleston, but I also lived in Alaska for seven years. Exploring the mountains, flying airplanes (I have my pilots license!), watching sunsets, and taking pictures are among my favorite activities.
Another passion of mine is serving with nonprofit organizations. I've served with OneWorld Health on two medical mission trips. We provided free medical care to people of need in rural Uganda, Africa. It was priceless to experience such a diverse culture and beautiful place while impacting other people's lives and making a difference in the world. The images I created from those trips are my favorite body of work to date.
In 2017, I served on Scotty's Ride for Water (benefiting Water Mission International). It was a 3,300 mile, 8 week long, cross country cycling trip where 13-year-old, Scotty Parker cycled coast to coast, raising $650,000 for clean water. I was part of his core support team on the ride. I drove the van containing all of their stuff and took pictures of their progress along the way. It was another one of the best trips of my life. It made a giant impact on me and the world.
That's a little bit about me. Send me a message at the bottom so we can get to know each other. Talk to you soon!
Traveling is everything. I've taken five US cross-country road trips. Plus, two road trips in Ireland circling the whole country.
I worked in IT for 7 years before finally going full-time with photography in 2013.
I've been known to live spontaneously. One time, I booked a flight 2 hours before the plane departed.
In high school, I was part of a team that created a 3D animation video of a robot and won at nationals in Houston.
My favorite drink is sweet tea. And it's my pleasure to eat at Chick-Fil-A a lot.
My favorite part of the day is sunset when the warm glow washes over everything.
You'll be blown away by my air drumming skills even though I can't actually play the drums.
My all time favorite shows are FRIENDS and The Office.
