It’s my superpower to bring calm to chaos–and to be your own personal hype girl while I do it.
I collect moments like I collect stamps in my passport (and pin trades at Disneyworld).
The best part? Photos are real, and so are the stories behind them.
From one collector to another: When you step in front of the camera, you have the opportunity to take stock of everything you’ve gathered to get there–from the path that guided you to the love that fueled the journey.
So go ahead–let yourself get lost in the moment.
Take the night off from your worries.
Toast loudly–and often–with a French 75 in hand (or two).
When it comes to capturing your expertly crafted aesthetic, tender moments when no one’s looking, and bridal portraits worthy of a permanent place on the feed, the wedding photographer you deserve is one who can do it all (so you don’t have to do a damn thing).

When I’m not photographing weddings, I work as a tech geek for Southwest Airlines. That means flying on standby has become a lifestyle. I’m not above hopping on a plane for some Laduree french macarons when I’m craving one.
I’m always counting down till my next trip to Disney. When I close my eyes, I’m riding Space Mountain with a churro in my belly. I’d wear my Mickey Ears with rose gold sequins to bed if I could.
I’m a Capricorn, but I think “relentless workaholic” is a better way of putting it…
I’m an ISTJ and an Enneagram 6, so don’t tell me not to overthink it (because I already am).
I’ve been married to my husband, Alex, since 2016
We live in Dallas with our three dogs:
Sydney, Coco, and Stark
My favorite saying is n'oublie pas de vivre–don’t forget to live. In Paris, I had it engraved on a necklace at a family-owned jewelry shop. I wear it every day!
ven as a kid, I’d take my plastic 110mm camera to school with me and photograph everything. I couldn’t wait to have the photos developed so I could share them with friends and reminisce.
(Alexa–play “Started From The Bottom.”)
Would you believe me if I told you that my first camera and my first box of crayons were both made by the same company?
meet my crew
My husband Alex is a day trader, content creator, and YouTube personality for "B the Trader." He enjoys coffee, the Marvel cinematic universe, and has only learned to cook two dishes since we got married in 2016. Don’t worry–we’re working on his skills as a chef. His not-so-secret superpower? Alex is an extrovert extraordinaire. He’ll be your BFF before you’ve even met him. His favorite place at parties is working the room while I pet the dog in the corner (or hide behind my camera). Alex can strike up a conversation with just about anyone–even when I beg him not to.
the playful one
the cuddle bug
As the oldest of our crew, Coco is the enforcer–she carefully inspects every Amazon package that hits our porch, but her duties don’t end there. She’s also the SMP Quality Control maven, verifying the fabulous-ness of your photographs before the gallery hits your inbox.
As you can see in her picture, Sydney is the most energetic member of our pack. She has a penchant for squeaky toys when she’s not trying to eat Stark’s dinner.
As the Armored Avenger of SMP, Stark takes his responsibilities seriously. Once you get past his metaphorical titanium suit, Stark is the biggest cuddle bug you’ll ever meet.
