On a Mission to Tell an Authentic Tale
I enjoy death metal as much as I do weepy grandpas seeing their baby in a wedding dress. Life’s weird like that. Love’s kind of like that too. Doesn’t really make sense yet it’s the thing you are most sure of all the same.
I don’t believe in stereotypes. I don’t believe in categories. I certainly don’t believe that there is one right way to do something. What I do believe in is figuring out what you want in life and going after it at full sprint. No apologies. Your life is too short to not be doing exactly what you were made for. If that doesn’t fit into the box people try to put you in well…that’s their problem. *high five*
A Casual Interview With Your Elopement Photographer
Okay, yes I interviewed myself, but you’ll learn a lot. It’ll be fun!
Why Do You Love to Travel?
Growing up in small coastal town in North Florida, I spent so much time outdoors. That’s all there was to do. We didn’t travel much. You just stuck with what you knew. When I got a driver’s license, I’d drive as far as I could. When I could afford to fly, I’d fly as far as I could. The culture was what I was after I’d learn some years later.
Seeing other ways of life is fascinating and eyeopening. It makes you really see people and wonder about their stories. It changes you.
What Are Your Favorite Places to Visit?
Pacific Northwest. I’m on a mission to move here as soon possible. For now, I visit friends there often.
W. North Carolina. I spent every summer as a kid here at the family cabin. It’s insanely tranquil. No TV. No Wifi. Just the mountains and the dogs having the time of their lives in the creek.
Iceland. Dallas and I eloped there and I love going back to shoot.
Who Do You Spend Your Time With?
Family is really important to me. I come from a place where grandparents feel like parents and all your cousins feel like siblings.
I spend my time with my husband Dallas and our two rescue pups, Arnold and Rudy in Atlanta. See proof below.
We’re hiking and traveling when we’re motivated. Read or play Call Of Duty when we’re not. Yes, I like video games just as much as literature.
Why’d You Become a Photographer?
To show people how immensely amazing they are. I’m empowering people to be exactly who they are on their own terms. The idea that society dictates much of how we think we’re supposed to live is tragic. I’m spreading the news that there is another way.
When I figured out I could document your best day while incorporating my love for travel and landscapes, it was a done deal.
