My mom always kept a camera within arms reach. Whether we were celebrating a major holiday or just enjoying another day of ordinary family life, she snapped photos and filled albums. First steps, summertime popsicles, game nights – it was all there.
As I burned through Harry Potter books and episodes of Friends to learn English, she preserved our legacy. When I asked her why she was so driven to document every little moment, she showed me a picture from her childhood...then told me this picture was the only one she had.
She didn’t live surrounded by mountains of memorabilia that could instantly transport her back in time.
So, she wanted to make sure that was a gift she could give to me someday.
While she gave me the gift of a documented childhood, she also gave me so much more. Her passion for photography and its power to freeze moments in time inspired me to pursue the art myself. I went on to major in multimedia arts in college. I interned with the European Press Agency, got a job as a product photographer with a clothing company, and eventually launched a portrait photography business. But my mom’s view of photography as a window to the past eventually led me to document one of the most important days in a family’s legacy: the wedding day.
My Photography Story
As a photographer with nearly a decade of experience, I’ve learned the power of the right light, the perfect angle, and a great pose. But what inspires me to return to my role as a Tupelo wedding photographer over and over again is the power of true love.
Cheesy, I know. But it’s so true. The love between a couple, their family, and their best friends is what makes life sweet, and I never tire of preserving those moments of true love in all its forms for my clients to treasure.

My work greatly depends on the level of communication and the quality of guides that I provide to prepare my clients for whatever comes our way.
I take pride in connecting with my clients because it is a way for me to make them at their most comfortable selves in front of the camera.
For a decade-long photography career, I have had highs and lows, but I definitely never stopped learning key takeaways from the numerous amazing opportunities I've had.
I am so happy and honored to shared my wedding galleries to showcase the product of hard work and dedication to my craft. These two however, stand out the most from the pack. They just express joy and love and these couples really celebrated their special days in their own unique way.
