For Brendan and I’s three year wedding anniversary (eep!), we headed out to gorgeous Hawaii to visit the beautiful islands of Maui and Oahu. Everyone always talked about how amazing the islands were, but I really had no appreciation for just how amazing they were until I was there. The entire time we were in […]

Our Anniversary in Hawaii

Taking photos for a fellow photographer is always so much fun! Chelsey photographs lots of weddings, just like me, so she has a huge appreciation for couple’s portraits, which is why we spent extra time setting up these gorgeous portraits! I had so much fun exploring the location with Chelsey and Tristan. The two of […]

Lady of the Snows Wedding Portrait Photography | Belleville, IL

From the moment I met Danny and Katelyn, I knew that we would get along! They are both adventurers who love hiking, the mountains, and traveling. I loved listening to Katelyn gush over the beautiful moments of Colorado while Danny admired the far-off look in her eyes. The sweet smiles on their faces while they […]

Romantic Forest Park Engagement Session | St. Louis, MO

One of the greatest things in the world is when you meet two people who make you instantly feel like a friend! Clayton and Melanie are so sweet and down to earth – their engagement session felt like more of a bonding session than a photo session (but don’t worry, I still got someĀ gorgeousĀ images!). Melanie’s […]

When I met up with Adam and Emily for their engagement session, it was one of the coldest fall days I’d seen in a long time – there was even a bit of snow! And this was in November! Despite the cold, we still had so much fun during their engagement session. I knew that […]

Brendan and I got engaged on December 5th, 2015 and were married just a year and a half later! When we got engaged, we were just two little college kids who had absolutely no clue what we were doing with our lives. We were both totally clueless as to what marriage or planning a wedding […]

Like most people, my family means the absolute world to me! I am very close to both of my parents, as well as my younger sister! My sister truly is my best friend, and the older I get, the more my mom becomes like my best friend too! My parents divorced when I was young, […]

Lovely Family

Brendan and I are so in love with our sweet fur babies! There are few things on earth that make me as happy as cuddling up with my babies. They may bark a lot when Amazon deliveries come, take up too much of the bed, and stare at us while we’re eating, but they are […]
