I'm newly married, so I can relate to alot of what you are going through and I have a whole new level of empathy and excitement for every one of my clients. I am also expecting our first baby in January 2024. (But I'll be shooting still, don't worry!)I know finding someone you trust to photograph your day and these moments is a big deal and I don't take that lightly. I pride myself in business for being dedicated, professional, fun and truthful.
Connection is everything to me. It’s what sparks joy in your eyes, eases your shoulders, and exudes authenticity. That’s the magic that makes a photograph so much more than an image in an album or pixels on a screen.
Your photographer is everywhere with you on the wedding day. We are in the room with the bride getting ready, capturing the ‘first look,’ and just steps away while you say, “I do.” I consider it an opportunity to make every moment memorable. I want you to have fun with your people. You should cherish your wedding day, and it’s my hope your wedding gallery will help you remember the day you made this covenant with your spouse, with all it's details big and small.
I married my best friend, Zack Laffey on July 30, 2022 and it was the best day ever!! I don't think I will be able to photograph weddings in the same way I did prior to experiencing the day from your shoes. We are also expecting our first baby, January 2024 and are so so thrilled!
Photography was something I picked up more seriously in college to help me see the world in a new light. I got my first DSLR camera shortly after my parents’ divorce. It became a means of choosing perspective, holding onto hope, and seeking God’s goodness in every season.
I’ve always held deep appreciation and admiration for my two older brothers. Watching them get married and have children of their own is the best. I love being an aunt and having sisters! The handsome little guy in the photos is my nephew, Bo. His laugh is contagious. My two nieces are just as cute.
My family often spent summers at the lake or sleeping in a tent beside a campfire when I was young. Now I have an insatiable love for the outdoors, thanks to those special childhood memories. Well, the outdoors, and lots of tex-mex. :) Most my photography takes place in the sunshine, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Photography as a career wasn’t a thought until college, but I have always loved it. I used to spend hours on the floor in my bedroom with photos, patterned paper, and stickers scattered across the floor. I still have my old scrapbooks! I joined the yearbook team in High School, which really sparked my interest in storytelling with a camera and keeping moments close.
In college, I made an impressive $8 an hour at my on-campus marketing job. My budget was tight, but I had the best time taking photos for campus events, and it was the perfect opportunity to grow in skill and practice.
One day, a sweet couple asked me to photograph their wedding set for November of 2014. I had never done anything like a wedding, so I was nervous. After I received the feedback from their wedding photos, I applied to become a legal business. I was up and running by the following summer! I still think their trust in me convinced me that I had a gift to share.
I call Texas home. I was born and raised here and have lived here all my life, but I love to travel. My family lives near Houston, my in-laws live on the east coast of Florida and our favorite place is in NE Tennessee so we seem to always be on the go.
I am fortunate to have couples who have invited me to Wisconsin, Florida, Jamaica, Michigan, Colorado, Tennessee, and numerous cities across Texas.
Often, I am the friend who spontaneously texts pals with cheap flight options, a strategy for where to stay, and a cost breakdown. I do this in hopes of convincing them of all the fun we could have. Needless to say, I am willing and eager to be your photographer- for weddings near and far!
