As Seen on The Knot
TNB_logo files-05 copy.png

I am a photographer, a lover of all things beautiful, and a chaser of light. I strive for the fresh breath of air every new adventure brings. I hoard the cookies airlines give on short flights less than three hours. My blood is 2 parts green tea, and 1 part coffee. I went to college to be a combat photojournalist, but I left before graduation to pursue a career, and a life, that I love. I'm marrying my best friend in May, 2018. Indie folk music feeds my soul. I like to sit outside in the rain during thunderstorms. I think space is cool. I know He has saved me. I love feeling everything at once. But this isn't about me.

This is for you. 

This is for you who love and laugh and cry and live with passion because the beauty in living is living with a fire in your soul. 

This is for those who lose themselves in the misty mountains and the ever-deeper sea and the covered forests. 

This is for those who don't seek applause or recognition for their lives and for their love, 

but this is for those who will always remember how they felt in that moment with the person who made them forget everything else. 

Your love is different and worthy and appreciated and strong and filled with passion and it is unlike any other, 

but that doesn't make it any less glorious. It makes it ethereal and

mysterious and

fragile and 



For your love belongs to you and God and only you can decide what your love means. 

And will forever mean. 

And other people will experience love through you. 

Through your spirit. Through the way you look at each other. Through the way you crave each other like the fire craves the air. 

If you wear your love like a warm blanket by a fire on a cold winter night;

If you ignite one another, pursue one another, crave one another; 

If you hike through the clouds to be among the treetops and take in the views like a breath of fresh air with your best friend; 

If you need one another to play the corresponding harmonies in your souls; 

If you are each other's fragmented sentences to create this fierce love story; 

If the thunder stirs your core and the lightning strikes restart your heart; 

If above all, your love is vulnerable and genuine...

I want to know you and your story. Let's create something amazing on a mountain peak and in the calming waters and in the waving wheat fields and in any place that makes you feel invincible. 

If this is you... I can't wait to meet you. Let's get started.

I've always thought it imperative to know who you're working with. As a photographer and as an individual, I try to be as authentic and genuine as possible. Below, you'll find photos of me on Halloweens, sunburned at the beach, hiking in the mountains, at military balls, and enjoying the messy and every day. These memories, the people I love, and the things that make my heart soar. These photos, these captured insights into my real and unposed life... this is me.
