/ WE STAND FOR:
THE PURSUIT OF ADVENTURE
SUPPORTING REAL MARRIAGES
AUTHENTIC, RAW, CREATIVE STORYTELLING
THE IMPORTANCE OF MEMORIALIZING A FAMILY’S HERITAGE
I’m head-over-heels in love with my husband. I believe that marriage is one of the most challenging relationships in life, but it is also one of the most important and unbelievably amazing partnerships that can ever be promised. Our story is messy and imperfect, but that is what makes it real and worth fighting for.
I believe that photography is a beautiful act of listening and storytelling. I value the responsibility of making honest images that reflect the truth in the relationships, moments, and emotions that I’m honored to witness. I make it a priority to get to know my couples so that I can create something authentic that will be a part of their heritage forever.
/ I BELIEVE IN:
Loving God + loving people
Taking time to snuggle with my boys
Hiking in the Appalachian Mountains with our Samoyed pup
Consuming great food + wine + dessert + coffee
Reading mystery novels on our front porch
Entertaining personality tests (Enneagram 1 + ENFJ)
Cheering on Syracuse basketball
Exploring over relaxing on vacation
Being purposeful but also spontaneous
Trying almost anything once
Chasing the light
MorningWild was born out of something personal in my life: my first date with my husband. We met in the morning to grab breakfast and walk on the beach, the same place where we would later say our vows and become husband and wife.
Morning is symbolic of the beginning. It’s the time of day when you are your most raw self, before showering and applying makeup. Before the world and routines begin. It’s reminiscent of golden light, sunrise, peace, and nature. Wild is feeling free. It’s about passionately creating something unconventional without boundaries.
Together, MorningWild signifies the pursuit of something raw, authentic, and creatively beautiful without limitation.
There's something magical about having the ability to freeze a fleeting moment in time, bring it back to life and actually hold it in your hands. Those moments in life tell our stories of love, connection, and joy.
Freezing those moments, capturing the connections and documenting the love within a family through the lens of a camera is the most fulfilling job I can imagine. So much so, that it hardly feels like a job, but more so a calling.
When I’m not documenting love, you can find me camping with my husband and dog in our camper van, exploring trails and mountain tops, attending a chillax yoga class, seeing live local music or sipping some wine on a patio.
