Love doesn't always come easy. I know that first hand. I use to not believe in love or marriage at all. I avoided relationships, romance because I considered it to be the biggest lie ever told. I had a dark childhood to put it briefly. I was a deeply angsty teenager who proudly was nicknamed The Rejection Section. Then I met Tim.
He slowly won my heart and when I say that I don't mean that we dated for a long time. I mean I friend zoned him for 4 years. He patiently proved to me that real love does exist. He helped me fight my demons and became my safe place, my home. I finally found someone who loved and accepted all of me, for exactly who I was. I've never been so happy to be proved wrong about something in my life.
After marrying him, I realize how life changing it is to have a true partnership and so I document weddings intentionally/with care so that you can share your love story through photos that feel like you for the rest of your lives.
Love is hard but it's worth it all.
I have an obsession with mountains. I am a mountain girl through and through from the first time my grandpa took me on a hike up Whiteface. I am drawn to them immediately and I can't imagine not living close to the mountains.
I am also travel obsessed. It has shaped who I am since the first time I went overseas to Ethiopia to serve orphans there. There is something about immersing yourself into another culture, seeing what they value and love that is humbling and so enlightening. This world is too big to stay put. There is too much too learn and too much to see.
I like to be barefoot if I can help it.
I am a Lord of the Rings & Harry Potter nerd.
I love chai tea.
I'm a huge fan of musicals! Les Mis & The Greatest Showman all day everyday please!
I'm friendly and upbeat, enneagram 7.
If I am ever sad an hour in the outdoors is the best cure.
