      Hello and welcome! I am thrilled you are here. This is where we start! I believe that my photography is a by product of who I am as a person so here is my honest and humble ‘about me’!

      I am an artist, a maker, and an explorer. I am a learner and a person of endeavor. I seek positivity and surround myself with those who spread it. I invite opportunity with open arms and I am always eager to find new hobbies and passions. My recently discovered hobbies include woodworking, leather craft, and fitness. World travel is my passion, and I am most happy while wandering lost amongst foreign cities.

      I am a visualizer and emotive story teller. I chase moments that will be memories, and save moments that would otherwise be missed. I find myself admiring light when entering new rooms, and daydreaming of ways to capture it. I challenge myself daily to explore deeper in the photography world. I am in love with analog photography; film and large format photography are fascinating! They have brought me unteachable respect for the properties of light.

      My style is a byproduct of what I personally value most visually. It is a collection of my favorite instances of light and shadow. My shooting style is emotionally driven, moody, and story focused. My color palettes typically involve a focus on golden light + earthy washes. I believe there is beauty to simplicity. I’m deeply grateful that we found our way to each other and I look forward to capturing your important life moments. 


      CALVIN. Where to even start with him. First, let me say, there was NO ONE else who was going to shoot my wedding. From the moment he picked up a camera, it was always going to be him. I always joked that there were a guaranteed two people at my wedding, me and him... and the guy was always question mark 😂. All jokes aside, he's your guy. Because MY god, he delivered and then some. It was important to me to have not only excellent creatives capturing our day, but ones who felt like we'd known them our whole lives. And Calvin brought that energy and pulled out all the stops to make our wedding spectacular. We even flew him in early to go on our wedding party fishing trip and enjoy a gorgeous vacation with us in Destin, FL before the day. He fit right in like he was always meant to be there (he was) and made our week that much more complete. Truly, couldn't have imagined the trip without him. And everyone loved him to pieces. When I say Calvin is a true artist, there's no exaggeration. This is not a guy who points a camera and clicks a pretty preset. This is someone who has honed his craft, nerded out on every last artistic detail, and spends his free time challenging himself creatively. On top of all of that he is an absolutely STELLAR human being, who puts his bride and groom above everything. His love for what he does emanates in his work. If you don't book Calvin, what are you even doing? MARRIED: May 14, 2022 Courtney
