Tell us a little about yourself, where you live and how you got started in photography.
I live in Austin, TX and first picked up a camera when I was in college on a trip to Ethiopia in the summer of 2008. There was something about capturing a moment in time that just wouldn't let me go. Up until that point I had been an aspiring musician, so I started shooting my friends and live music until eventually I began shooting weddings.
How do you describe your style?
It's hard to describe my style, but my goal has always been to produce creative and timeless images for my clients.
What or who really inspires you?
I watch a lot of movies in the theater, and my favorite director is Wes Anderson. I try to surround myself with other creatives outside of the wedding world in order to draw inspiration from other industries.
What are your top 3 tips for photographing weddings?
My top 3 tips for photographing weddings:
1) Connect with your clients on a personal level to help draw out their personalities in the photographs.
2) Anticipate moments before they happen.
3) Treat each wedding as if it's the only wedding you will shoot all year.

My husband and I craved some sun and sand for our honeymoon. We wanted to go on an adventure together, to come back with an awesome experience and not go on a “standard" honeymoon. We were able to settle on Cuba.
The turquoise waters of the Bahamas, the dramatic Rocky Mountains, the vistas of Iceland- endless romantic images pop into our minds when we think of destination weddings. And that is why, almost every wedding photographer at some point wants to give them a go.
So we’re going to tell you how to find them, book them, and prep for them.
The formula is simple.
clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer
We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.
