My Photography Gear

Education

I got my first DSLR camera back in middle school, but I had no idea what I was looking for and simply got whatever the store salesman told me. My camera (and lack of camera knowledge) served me just fine up until I started shooting more regularly in high school and college, and I had […]

Weddings

Marissa & Reagan’s Grand Ivory wedding was absolutely stunning! I always love being back at the Grand Ivory (especially since that’s where Hudson and I got married!) and seeing how different couples make the gorgeous venue their own!

Portraits

As August draws to an end and fall leaves, pumpkin spice, and cozy fires are on your mind, you just might start seeing photographers in your area advertising something called a “mini session.” While the term sounds self-explanatory enough, in reality, “mini session” is often used to describe something that is not truly a mini session.

For Brides

This tutorial coincides with an update that I’m VERY excited about! I recently switched online gallery companies, and I am OBSESSED! As much as I loved my old gallery company, I knew I wanted to find an alternative that was prettier, easier to use, and provided a better overall experience for my couples. Enter Pic-Time, […]
