Austin Wedding Photographer

Vibrant, Authentic + Dynamic Memories

for joyful and passionately in love couples



Ryan grabbed her waist and pulled her in close. . .

He whispered words into his new bride’s ear, words that were only meant for her to hear - he then sealed them with a kiss before gliding back onto the dance floor. Jackie stood there beaming as the room melted away around her... she took a deep breath in, as tears of joy built up in her eyes, and whispered quietly to herself: “...I can’t believe he’s mine.

As I photographed this moment, I knew this was exactly what I was meant to be doing...

My journey into photography began as a young girl after my family's first big trip. We came home from this incredible adventure with absolutely nothing to show for it. I was gutted - and so quickly took it upon myself to become the "family photographer".

Fast forward and I have been lucky enough to be an Austin wedding photographer, documenting countless families, for just under a decade now.

The way he turns into a big ball of mush the second he sees the love of his life in her wedding dress.

That special laugh and sparkle in her eye that only her forever person can draw out.

The tear the bride’s father tries to hide, in vain, as he squeezes his daughter a little extra tight before giving her away.

The immense joy, peace and pride beaming on mom's face knowing that her baby girl has found her best friend and the love of her life.

The silent tears shared during the father/daughter... or brother/sister dance...

The belly laughs echoed around the reception hall during speeches.

And the cheers and “go grandma”s that erupt on the dance floor as she out-dances everyone there.

Making lifelong memories with the people you love most in this world.
