JUST A GIRL WITH An obscene amount of CAMERAs AND A PASSION TO CHANGE THE WEDDING InduSTRY FOR THE BETTER.
This all started when I left my corporate accounting job, moved across the country and took a giant leap of faith...
P.S. That leap of faith has turned out
pretty cool so far.
I found myself on a mission to focus on the human connection.
Both the in between moments that often end up missed and the in your face, joy filled, spinning around in a field so happy you could puke ones.
My little photographer heart longs to document you and your closest people in a way that's "oh so nostalgic."
When you're in BKP land, you'll always be encouraged to have YOUR wedding YOUR way.
... And despite what your mother-in-law tells you, you absolutely do not have to do a garter toss OR invite anybody that you don't want to.
I believe in spontaneous moments, exploring this earth, always doing what's right, learning and growing, being kind, the law of attraction, taking chances and showing up for your passions 100%.
Aside from being behind the camera or creating resources for other photogs in my home office, you can find me dreaming up my next DIY house project (and then measuring it out with my hands), cruising with the top off in my Bronco and Fleetwood Mac on the radio, obsessing over my fur babies or dreaming up my next adventure.
My hope for the industry is to make wedding days less about crossing items off of a shot list and more about being present in the real, raw and unposed moments.
If you're ready to make some memories together, let's talk!
I've been in the industry for a while and I know for some people a big wedding isn't where it's at
Have you ever done something because you think that's the next, natural step?
Like... you graduate high school, then go on to college even though you have no idea what you want to do with your life?!
Sometimes we do things because we think it's what's supposed to happen next.
This is what often happens with big weddings.
Friends and family might assume you'll have a traditional wedding and while they're great for some, they're also not a great fit for everyone.
If you're someone who feels called to have a non-traditional wedding, I want to show you the ropes and help you create a day you'll be obsessed with.
*** Having gorgeous images is just an added bonus! ***
Every couple, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last,
I feel most inspired...
When trying something new.
Whether that's shooting in a new location or twisting into an awkward pretzel to capture a new angle. Seeing things with fresh eyes helps me to feel creative and fulfilled.
In the spontaneous moments.
Some of my fav memories come from unplanned moments - like last minute adventures and dancing in the rain.
Capturing the meaningful connections.
I have a deep understanding that the people who are celebrating alongside of you are a gift that isn't guaranteed to everyone.
These relationships are just as important for me to freeze in time as the one with your partner.
Rain, hail or shine,.. Ive got it covered.
When you're a BKP couple, I'll take the time to get to know your story, who you are as individuals and what your relationship looks like.
This helps me document you in the most authentic way possible.
If you're looking for a photog or videographer who will just show up on your wedding day and take some pretty portraits, there are so many out there to choose from! Here's a secret though... I'm not going to be just the photog/videographer who shows up and crosses items off of a shot list.
I'm going to care about your story.
And although I'm not officially a planner, I help my couples with a heck of a lot of planning (especially when we're doing something abroad or non-traditional)!
Want to get married in Bali, but you've never been there?
No problem! I've got you covered!
We can tackle location scouting, timelines, discovering awesome vendors and finding the best lighting for your day as a team.
outside of taking pretty photos in pretty places, one of my fav things to do is spend time with my friends and family.
I've been blessed with the best support system, so love being around my people, but let's be honest...
I'm a total introvert at heart!
Some of my best me time is spent in a pair of comfy clothes with candles lit an episode of Grey's Anatomy on.
My favorite days are the ones when I wake up with the sunrise, make a cup of hot coffee or tea and journal.
I've been known to book spontaneous trips to Europe first, then tell my husband about them later and am eagerly awaiting an N'Sync reunion tour. (fingers crossed!)
That's a little sneak peek into my life and my favorite things! Maybe it looks something like yours? Maybe it looks wildly different?
The beauty of my job is that I'm able to tell stories (hopefully yours too!) in a way that's unique to each couple that I meet.
