about me

I believe in love. I believe it is the most powerful force in the universe. Every couple's love story is a unique and wonderful story that deserves to be shared and documented for the generations to come.  I want to witness the greatest loves, to feel them in my bones, to be moved by them like the wind. 

I want to create art that transcends the ordinary and shows the intimacy and connection between lovers. I want to see past the posed smiles to feel the passion that moves us all.  I believe that in the end, life is all about the love we share. We won't wish we had more posed smiling portraits, we'll want to leave a legacy of true love and connection. These are the moments that set our souls on fire.




the experience


You found each other in a sea of a million faces. You have overcome the challenges. You hold on to each other above all else. It is the most beautiful story in the world; the one that gives life meaning. Love is the best adventure there is. It is a story that deserves to be told.

each session is its own wonderful adventure, unique as each couple.

Meeting you in person and getting to know each other is our first step in creating a session to tell your story. At our consultation, we will go over any ideas and questions you may have, sip coffee, pick a date and location, and generally hang out. This is such a fun point in the process that helps us reach a better level of comfort for the actual shoot.

Shoots are almost exclusively done on location, typically within an hour's drive of Atlanta, and last for about one hour. 

During your session, you two can expect to do a lot of hugging, cuddling, kissing, giggling, laughing -- all the fun things! 

I love working with each couple to show their one of a kind connection, the little details that are truly unique to them: whispered "I love you"s, crinkly nosed laughs, intimate glances. Creating those moments and capturing them in an artistic way is what I specialize in.

let's tell your epic love story.
