Italian Architecture Firm Alba Progetti

Alba Progetti, a Bologna, Italy based architecture firm,  designed a warehouse uniquely placed in the countryside of Emilia Romagna. If you look closely, the bright red features creatively resemble the head and tale of a pig.

This was a great way to dip my toes into photographing architectural projects and design. 

May Missouri Wedding

The Exchange Venue in Camdenton, Mo. was a hidden Missouri wedding venue oasis for Mason and Mackenna. The whole family was so hospitable and ready to help capture the best photos to remember the couple's special day. It was a pleasure working with them and I'm excited to see what this beautiful couple does next. 

A big thanks to Emily Sewell for assisting in capturing these moments for the newlyweds. Cheers!

2017: A Year Review

While 2017 has drawn to a close and the new year stops for no one, I want to reflect on the past months. It's been 12 months of keeping my head down, nose to the grindstone, and pressing myself in ways I hadn't before. Yet, I can confidently say, it has all been a beautiful transition for even more exciting things to come.

Through it all, I have had so many privileges this year. I have documented beautiful moments, traveled to new cities and found friendships spanning across states. I've cried tears of happiness behind the camera as couples say their vows, shared laughs with friends and mentors in front of the camera, and I've witnessed beautiful moments without a camera in sight.

Thank you to every single client that has trusted me to photograph their milestones this year. I know these moments represent a beautiful transition for you all as well. I wish happiness for everyone in 2018. Thank you.

Summer Marriage in Madison

Earlier this year, when it was warm and there was ice in our coffee orders, I got to work alongside the extremely talented Christian Gideon once more. This beautiful couple celebrated their marriage in the heart of Madison, Wis. It was a joy. 

I love weddings. Everyone reveling in love and happiness, looking their best and smiling is an infectious energy. Being surrounded by this excitement, I like to try and capture the in-between moments.  Aimee and Chase made it easy. Congratulations, again!  

 

Serendipitous Proper Bagel

It's gratifying when small observations lead to meaningful experiences. Resting on the bed-side table in an East Nashville Airbnb, a copy of Native Magazine caught my eye.  Interest in the cover led to a late morning of house-made bagels, cream cheese, soft window light and an afternoon work space at Proper Bagel on Belmont Blvd.

Taking breakfast orders and happily giving recommendations was none other than the owner of Proper Bagel and the woman rocking the cover of Native, Heather Speranza. It was the perfect coincidence leading to fun conversation, friendship and quality food.

Bites were traded between the avocado and egg on bialy with a micro green salad, and a breakfast bagel with rosemary garlic cream cheese and seared tomato as a side.  A baked strawberry donut with house coffee from Barista Parlor was the post-breakfast treat.
