TL;DR – I’m a Midwest girl living out her Neverland dreams in Maui, Hawaii.
As a kid I always wanted to be a lost boy and live in a treehouse surrounded by the jungle and the sea. And Hawaii is probably as close to Neverland as I will get – though I wouldn’t mind a pirate battle or pixiedust sometimes.
I moved to Maui in 2009 with my husband, a few suitcases, and a chance for a new beginning. It was Maui that re-ignited my love for photography.
From the second I stepped off that plane, I knew that there was something special about this place; it was real-life magic.
I am inspired by love, nature, and the beauty of relationships – and years from now I want you to remember how your wedding day FELT through your images
To document your wedding with authenticity and documentary style shooting – infused with artistry and the beauty of Hawai’i
Look – if I’m going to be spending one of the most important days of your life with you, it’s probably good you know a few things about me!
Here’s the thing: I’m going to be there during all the moments of laughter and tears and I’m gonna see the unfiltered crazy that is your wedding day. And it’s going to be awesome.
I grew up in a small town outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan. I’m a Midwest girl at heart that loves bonfires, oversized sweaters, and all things cheese. And wine. But most importantly, wine and cheese together.
My husband and I met in high school. I always knew he was the man I was supposed to marry, but we didn’t start dating until I was 21. We got married in 2009 and renewed our vows in 2019 in Bali!
I’m fluent in dad jokes and try not to take myself too seriously.
Also, I’m a former high school English teacher. My drunk party trick is that I can recite the entire prologue of Romeo and Juliet. Try me.
I have another company, Engaged on Maui, that helps guys and gals plan and document their proposals! We call ourselves Bush Ninjas and we love planning surprises!
Although I’m primarily a Maui photographer, I also do business coaching through Business as an Adventure. Teaching was my first career and love and I love teaching other photographers how to level-up their business game.
You’ve probably already noticed – but I’m a mom too! My first daughter Eddy was born in 2017 and my second daughter Claire was born in January of 2021 (sorry Claire, blog post coming soon-ish #secondchild). Being their mama is probably the coolest thing I’ll ever do.
I’ve done some cool shit over the years – both in my pre-parent life and my now-mom life. From our travels around the world to paddling to almost every Hawaiian island, I’ve been fortunate enough to do some really cool (or maybe stupid?) things.
However you want to spin it, I like doing cool stuff. So enjoy this smattering of cool things I’ve done over the years!
The most important things to me will always be my friends and family.
Which is why I’m hard-wired to take your day so seriously. Having a visual legacy to pass down to your children and grandchildren is why I do what I do.
I’m here to help you remember.
As your Maui photographer, I believe with providing my clients with stunning images that will transport them back to one of the most important days of their lives.
That they should make you feel what your day was like – down to the smallest moment.
And I really believe that your wedding photos shouldn’t be boring.
