keep scrollin' to the good stuff

We all know there is no perfect relationship (first hand experience here lol!)- but that's what makes your relationship beautiful...getting to love each other through all the joy and sometimes the tears, and getting to grow together through it all.

That's why I'm not here just to get 'the perfect picture'.

Your story is so much more than that- it's joyful and exhilarating, but also quiet and intimate.

Sometimes it looks like laughing until your stomach hurts and sometimes it looks like a warm embrace after a long day.

Sure, I absolutely love getting creative (and I will)- but capturing real moments is what I value most of all- because ultimately, YOUR story is what makes it truly beautiful.

Alberta Alternative Wedding Photographer

If you like unconventional, honest, friendly and real photos, I’m your person.

I'm a hands-off, documentary-style photographer and I've been capturing wedding, family + corporate photos for 9 years.

The more organic the moment, the better that moment can be caught on camera.

I also have a weird Canad-lish accent, and you'll know when I'm excited as I talk faster + faster 😈
