Ohio based destination wedding photographer specializing in small intimate gatherings + elopements


Liz + Dan | University of Dayton Engagement Session | Dayton, Ohio engagement photographer

Liz and Dan met in college at The University of Dayton. When they told me they wanted to do their engagement session at The University of Dayton, I was STOKED. We met in a campus parking lot and they took me on a mini tour of all the places that meant the most to them and where they first met. We stopped by the cafe on campus for coffee and had so much fun walking around.

I didn’t go to university so I wasn’t used to seeing college students play beer pong outside of their dorms…in shorts…in the snow….at 1pm in the afternoon…..on a Sunday. HAHA Liz and Dan thought it was funny since they had gone through seeing that in college.

Seriously was such a fun session and hang out with them. I really do love getting a break from the nature and shooting in the city scene. REFRESHING!

I believe in the magic of capturing moments as they are, not just as they should be. My style is a blend of traditional portraits and documentary. I thrive when given creative control and trust, allowing me to blend into your celebration, capturing the actual spontaneous and genuine moments.

Photographer, artist, mother, occasional painter, inspired by music videos, film, and nostalgia.

At a young age, I was engrossed with storytelling. Writing short stories on a thrifted type writer. Filming music videos to my favorite songs. A school project wasn’t just papier-mâché, it was a production with costumes, music, and visual effects. Now, with photographs, documenting a wedding day of all its moments of little touches, side glances, stolen kisses, hidden tears, and belly laughs. I can’t but help but bottle up the day, transport a memory from a feeling to something you can hold onto.
