"For me, wedding photography is more than just capturing moments. It’s preserving the start of a legacy. It’s allowing my couples to relive the best day of their lives. It’s making friends and family." 

"It’s knowing how to bustle a dress when no one else does. It’s being able to expect the unexpected. To step in when others step out. To lend an ear and a shoulder when a loved one suddenly passes away. A hug and high five as you celebrate down the aisle. It’s more than just snapping pictures. It's more than just money in the bank. The experience I provide is more than just a photographer. It’s what I was meant to do."

Desert Engagement Photos

The desert has this different kind of beauty to it.  It’s not super green like the midwest, it’s not lush with trees, in fact, it tends to be bare and brown.  However, I’ve recently found myself falling in love with the desert.  It’s the PERFECT place for engagement photos.  It really allows the couple to be center stage, and it adds such a nice soft and romantic feel to the photos.  So don’t be surprised to find more engagement sessions in the desert hitting the blog soon!

Ashley and Rick met in the gym while Ashley was modeling for a magazine photoshoot.  Rick slid into her DM’s on social media and the two quickly started talking.  Since they’re both IFBB Pros and Christians they had a lot in common from the start.  They knew from the moment that they met, they had found their other half.  These two love to do everything together and they have the CUTEST little Frenchies!   While both being personal trainers, full-time dog parents, they also added fiancé to the list and started planning their wedding at Windmill Winery.  Since they both grew up in smaller farm towns, Windmill Winery felt like the perfect place to get married!  We had a lot of fun during their engagement session and I cannot wait for you to see a few of my absolute favs!  xo
