It’s true, I do love people, particularly my people. #murphytheboxer and my husband Dave are at the top of that list. In that order. 

I drink coffee, all day, er’ day, it’s kind of a problem.

   I’m down for a grand adventure and would consider myself an amazing travel companion. 

I dream BIG and take a ton of pride in that. 

 Inspiring is literally the chicken soup for my soul. 

 Thai food y’all, it slays me, every single time. 

 I wish, wish; WISH everyday felt like Friday and happy hour never ended. 

Urban Outfitters or BUST that’s for sure. 

 Perfect days come in the form of 70-degree temps and a slew of valuable furniture waiting for a flip at the nearby flea market.

I am in it for what I call the GOOD STUFF.

The good stuff includes: the warm light hitting your floor in the getting ready room. the movement of Your hair when the wind blows THAT day. the look your mother has when she connects  her long time

DREAM into reality during the father daughter dance song. or the instant your groom holds you in his arms after realizing you’ve committed to a lifetime of adventure together.

To me, that’s the GOOD STUFF and the people who want that, those are my PEOPLE. The people who create with me, laugh with me, hurt with me, and of course adventure with me. Those are the DREAMERS and man, I love me some dreamers.

Thank you!

I'VE RECEIVED YOUR MESSAGE. 
I'LL BE IN TOUCH SOON!

I grew up in the country or some people would call it the boonies since the living is slow and everybody knows everybody. Growing up in this type of environment I met some amazing people, learned what it means to work hard and love God devoutly, and also understand the value of quality over quantity. I never wanted to forget these values that were instilled in me as a child so I decided to name my business after the folks who invested in me and showed me the important things in life.

Images will be the only thing you have left to hold onto after your wedding day is over so I believe that you want those images to be crafted and captured beautifully. In order for that to happen you will need experience with the camera, guidance in posing you to look more beautiful than ever before and confidence that you are getting the shots you want without worry. By choosing me, you'll be getting all that and a bag of chips. But seriously, if you do want a bag of chips, let me know and I will figure out a way to get them for you.

Absolutely! I can help you figure out the best print sizes & products for your needs. These tangible pieces are a part of your legacy. 

Always. It makes the wedding day so much more personal for me by being able to hear the bride and groom’s story plus it also helps you two get comfortable behind the camera. It also makes for awesome photographs!

You should wear what you feel most confident and comfortable in. Don’t be afraid to look like yourself on picture day. With that said, be aware of clashing colors, bright neons, and the current season of weather when picking out an outfit.

My sessions usually last about an hour and include an average of 50-75 edited images.

I will travel anywhere and everywhere, I love seeing new places! Whether you're getting married in Virginia, another state, or planning a destination wedding, I'd love to see if we're a perfect fit.
