Looking
for some direction?

I’m here to give you every cue

There’s so much pressure for everything to be perfect on your wedding day, and you might be worried about how your photos are going to turn out.

It’s not every day that you’re getting your model on in a photoshoot and it’s okay if you don’t know what to expect. But hey, I’ll be there to guide you every step of the way. There won’t be any awkward posing or forced smiles, only real, genuine feelings coming through on camera.

REAL MEMORIES ARE MADE

IN THE MOMENT

I’m in it to document all of the belly laughs, meaningful kisses, and stolen glances because that’s what means the most when you look back for years to come. Your photos will be true to you, and I promise, they’ll be epic. 

I’ll help you stay present
and stress-free

READY TO DIVE IN?

From still-life
subjects to
dynamic couples in love

Something finally clicked

Living in a remote area, there weren’t many career paths to explore - I became a restaurant owner and settled into my life. I started photographing the food we served and I thought that would be the extent of my photo taking. (I mean hey, the subjects of my work never complained.) Then, when I least expected it everything fell into place. Long story short, I took some headshots for a friend (after turning her down a few times) and she absolutely loved them. Shortly after, I started shadowing her for weddings and something clicked.

Turns out, wedding photography isn’t as scary as I thought. In fact, it’s absolutely magical to be such an integral part of each couples’ biggest life moment. Now, I love my career and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I’ll make sure to document every detail of your day and give you the wedding photos you’ve always wanted. We’ve got this.

WORK WITH WHITNEY

Don’t be shy,

let’s get to know each other better

 “I love bourbon. Drink my coffee black. Live in Carhartts. I have a full sleeve and rarely brush my hair. Chapstick is my lipstick and I’m obsessed with true crime podcasts.”

A few things I like:

Sleeping with my feet out of the covers. Do NOT try that tucked sheet *ish* on me. My feet need to be wild, free, and cold at night.

Mornings. I’d much rather get up at 1am than stay up till 1am. Makes so much sense, right??

Arriving at my airport gate 2 hours before departure just so I can sit there and wait.

A few things i dislike:

Sweet coffee. Give me hot, black, and strong or iced with a dash of whole milk. If it’s sweet, that’s ALL I can taste and I want to taste *actual* coffee, thank you very much.

The beach. Unless there are big waves to play in, I don’t want it. You can keep your hot sun, smelly water, and annoying sand.

Tonic Water. G&T lovers, ARE YOU INSANE? Get that bitter fizzy hell water away from me.

Let’s talk values

I’ve got some non-negotiables 

CONNECTION

I want to build a real connection with all of my couples. I like to have an active role in helping you plan the details, and I’m all about getting to know each other through the whole process. It’s important that you’re comfortable with me (and if you’re not, it’ll show in your photos). So let’s laugh, bond, and become friends so we can create the best memories of your wedding day. 

Fun 

Above all else, your wedding day should be fun! I want to make sure that you can let loose and experience each and every moment of your day. Leave the heavy lifting to me - you just worry about soaking it all in and having the time of your life with your forever partner.

Transparency

It’s very, very important to me that I’m honest and transparent about what to expect when you work with me. I always tell it like it is, and I want you to ask me any and every question that you can think of. You can only make the right decision for you if you have allll of the information, and I pride myself on being an open book.
