RECENT WORK AND MUSINGS
For all of you creatives out there who are a) just starting out or b) have had your business for years, I have a key word that is going to change your life : “UNFOLLOW“. Okay, don’t get me wrong, it sounds harsh but really it’s a life saver. Let me give you a back story. Three years ago when […]
Today I would like to take the time to introduce a very special person, my husband and second shooter for weddings, Dre Pliodzinskas. I’m sure you are wondering, “How did he get the name Dre?” The quick version is this – His name is Andrius, which is Lithuanian. He worked at a restaurant that asked […]
When I was in college I went to school for a good seven years. Yup, I said it. Two at a community college and five at James Madison University. The first year at JMU I thought I wanted to get into a program called “SMAD” – Students of Media and Design. I believed that I […]
Katie Nesbitt’s Workshop & styled shoot was fabulous! She shared a lot of amazing information she has learned from running her own photography business. I took away a lot of valuable advice to improve my business but I must say– my favorite part was the styled shoot. Who doesn’t like to stare at pretty things!? Maroon’s, golds, blushes, […]

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe.
As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you!
I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
