Pictures outlast most things in life.

want to hear something crazy?

your photography experience 

In 2018, my mom suddenly passed away. While we were planning her celebration of life, I quickly realized that I hardly had any photos of my mom and I together. Sure we had some from when I was little, but she was always the one taking photos rather than jumping into the photo.

My mom's passing is what inspired me to become a photographer. Taking your photos means the world to me. I'm extremely passionate about documenting your most important people, places and moments in your life for someday when you will need them most. 

Your story deserves to be documented.

it's bigger than just taking some pictures..

- Katie thurmes

"We take Photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone."


I hope your pictures will be printed and dug out of an attic somewhere by your grandkids in 80 years. There is no greater joy than freezing a moment in time, the fulfillment of being able to tell your unique love story through my lens, or the excitement of being able to document a once-in-a-lifetime event.

photos to last a lifetime

I strive to treat each wedding as if it was my own. There's nothing I love more than leaving a wedding weekend filled with new connections from your closest friends and family. On your wedding day, I'll be more than just your photographer. Need help fixing any last-minute hair or makeup touch-ups? Need help coordinating vendors or managing the bridal party? 



At every wedding, I reflect on my own experiences and emotions when capturing moments. I feel like this adds passion to my work and the story that I'm documenting. 

I want you to look back on your photos and be pulled into that exact moment. Think of it as investing in a time capsule for you to relive each and every important moment and detail of your day. 

photos you can feel

Consider awkward, outdated posing a thing of the past. I will get to know you and your lover so that your images reflect yourselves in your truest and best form. Trust me, I understand that planning a wedding can be overwhelming.  I want to make the photography aspect of your day as stress-free as possible.

zero stress

Hailey made all of our dreams come true! To have her apart of our big day was such a blessing. She managed to capture our WHOLE story of our weekend in such special ways. We love her so freaking much and will never get over our amazing photos!!!

"Hailey managed to capture the whole story of our weekend in such special ways."

i'm ready to book!

My goal for you is to be 100% present and fully enjoy your day. You can trust me to be there every step of the way, from the moment you inquire to the day you recieve your full wedding album (tears). 

make sure you capture it before it's gone.


Tanner & I got married in 2022 in my father-in-law's backyard with our dog, Roo.

I'm the most type-a, easy-going extrovert that you'll ever meet, especially on wedding days!

The Lumineers, 90's Rock, and True Crime Podcasts are my fav.

I dropped out of college and learned photography on Youtube.

I'm a virgo and an enneagram 3w2.

I thought you'd never ask! Some of my favorite places that I've been are Greece, Italy, Alaska, and Oregon. I offer discounts on my bucket list locations! Reach out today and we'll find the most cost effective way for you to experience your dream destination wedding!

Do you do destination weddings?

A retainer is needed to secure your date, and the balance is due 30 days prior to the wedding date. I can also create custom payment plans for you if needed!

How does payment work?

My most popular package includes 8 hours of coverage, an engagement session & an album. This typically allows for getting ready details and shots of both of you getting dressed, all the way until dancing at the end of the night. All packages include the online gallery with rights to your photos.

What does full wedding coverage typically include?

YES! All my packages can be customized to your exact wedding needs. If you aren't quite sure what you want, I'll ask you questions so we can figure it out together!

Are your packages customizable?

I deliver all your photos through an online gallery. You have the rights to all images to print, post, and share with your families. Each wedding is different, but on average you can expect around 50-100 images per hour of coverage. I hand edit each image to ensure that every photo has my stamp of approval and is the best representation of your day!

How will we receive our photos, and how many do we receive?

I will send you sneak peeks within 24-72 hours of your wedding. Your full gallery will be delivered within 4-6 weeks. I know how hard it is to wait for your gallery, but I promise the wait will be worth it!

When can we expect to get our photos?

Choose me because you trust me and love my final product. The RAW images are not my final work.

Can we have the RAW images, too?

Of course! Check out my blog for a few!

Can we see a wedding gallery in full?
