Since you’re here, I’m guessing you’re not super stoked about a traditional, large church wedding. And honestly, I don’t blame you. They always felt a little stuffy and performative for my liking (but no shame if that’s what you’re into!).
Personally, I’m obsessed with small, intimate weddings and elopements. Why? Because I had one of my own and it was the coolest, most “us” thing my husband and I could’ve done. And I want to support as many couples as I can in experiencing that same level of magic.
My origin story isn’t your classic, “I found my mom’s old dusty camera one day and never looked back.” It’s more like, “I fell in love with love and that led me to photography and THEN I never looked back.” But let me rewind real quick.
Like every little girl ever, I was asked to be the flower girl at a family member’s wedding. I distinctly remember hating the way the scratchy fabric felt on my skin and wondering why the heck I had to wear it anyway. I couldn’t wait for the wedding to be over and change back into something comfy (and yes, this is still my line of thinking).
But the moment I walked down the aisle and began tossing petals left and right, I was hooked. The teary eyes. The oohs and aahs. The love you could feel in the air! It was like a real-life rom-com only better.
After that, I completely forgot about the dress and focused fully on getting down on the dance floor until my parents drug me out of the reception.
A decade or so later, I photographed my first wedding. And those feelings of excitement, love, and endless possibilities came rushing right back. I knew, with perfect clarity, that this was what I was made for.
Also yes—I did get a degree in photography which 100% helped me refine and elevate my technical skills. But that first wedding truly set the tone for my career. And if you ask nicely enough, I’d stand in as flower girl on your big day (with a camera for a bouquet).
PS: Yes -- I currently live in Iowa, but my passion is MOUNTAINS! * insert LoTR meme here *
