Before I became a full time photographer, I spent a decade as a high school history teacher and another three years mentoring teachers in best practices. Being an educator is a fundamental part of my being. I love supporting others on their journeys and with over eight years in business as a photographer and over 100 weddings photographed, I have helpful insights to share. Over the years I've helped new photographers set goals and develop strategic actions plans, learn to shoot in manual and master their camera, build a portfolio from scratch, curate an elevated brand aesthetic to attract a higher end clientele, and so much more. Whether you’re looking for a few specific answers, want resources to take your business and photography to the next level, or want a mentor to help you set and achieve goals in an ongoing relationship, I can’t wait to hear about your business and help you build your skills and achieve your dreams.

Wedding days are so much fun and brimming with beautiful details and emotional moments to document. They're also the most important day in your clients' lives. Along with the honor of being welcomed into those intimate moments, comes a whole lot of responsibility to be at our best. Learning this craft and this business is a process and it can be a lonely one. I believe in being a lifelong learner and that the first step to growth is giving yourself permission to admit you don't have all the answers. There are no stupid questions and there are often multiple good answers. Sharing knowledge generously, providing examples, and getting specific is essential. This journey is easier and growth happens faster when you can share and learn from someone who's stood where you've stood, faced the same challenges, and found a way forward.
