When I'm not photographing a wedding or an engagement session, you can find me snuggling with my cat or at my computer with coffee in hand diving into editing. I am mostly known for the passion and heart I put into everything I do, especially with my clients. I absolutely love getting to know you throughout the year; helping you wedding visions come to life.

I'm an extroverted introvert and love spending my weekends and evenings working or binging the latest Netflix show.  But on your wedding day you bet I will be a social butterfly.

I love serving the world by capturing genuine love, and candid moments between the people on the other side of my lens. I will get those laughs out of you even if I have to make a fool of myself, when I say authentic, I mean it!

Now let me introduce you to the rest of the team, scroll, scroll, scroll.

When I first interviewed Kylie, I knew shortly into the call she was meant to be apart of this team. We all get asked that one question in a job interview...You know, the one where they ask you how you handled a challenge you faced on the job. Well her response to that was exactly what I was looking for. Someone who can lead the wedding day and and stay on track with time.

Photography has become her creative outlet and she loves capturing candid moments that turn out to be some of the best memories in your gallery. When she am not working her full-time job, photographing you, or coaching volleyball, you can find her sitting on her front porch swing drinking coffee and reading a good motivational book. She married to her husband, Kyle and loves their two crazy Australian Shepherds, Rory and Banks. 

Kylie is the queen of project management since she is always tackling the next project and setting new goals. She will go above and beyond to photograph the best moments and beautiful portraits on your wedding day.

Lydia's love for photography begin in the same way mine did, with the high school yearbook. Photography has given her the opportunity to express her creative side by capturing little moments and big milestones. I see a fire in her that every successful creative has, passion.

Her bubbly personality and attention to detail are just a few reasons I know you will love working with her. She has a knack for all things organization and planning, do I dare mentioned her color coordinated closet, actually consists of 90% black pieces. And not to mention she is  the go-to for her friends when it comes to wedding planning advice. 

In a few short months, Lydia will marry her high school sweetheart, Sam and she is so excited to see all the final details come together. She has loved every aspect of planning her wedding, and cannot wait to photograph and help you plan yours!

Lydia's Work Coming soon!

Okay, let me state the obvious...Alicia is my big sister. So yes, I think she is quite amazing, but I know you will love working with her!

Alicia graduated from Loras College with a degree in Public Relations, but since graduating, her most sought-after skill has been in the art of organization. Don’t believe me, just take a walk through her closet. When she is not working as a ‘wearer of many hats,’ for Paramount Ambulance [AKA the family business], she is planning her next vacation, “yelping” about her previous vacations, or watching Marvel movies with her dog and husband while sharing a pint of Halo Top.

Alicia is also an advocate for all things self-care and self-love. As a retired pageant queen,  she has seen many faces of beauty and paths to said beauty. Her hope for all women and men alike is to embrace flaws, love imperfections and live a life of fearless authenticity.

Three things she loves to do – organize, travel and influence. Alicia has a passion for traveling and sharing her experiences with others which some how led her to achieve the 'Elite Yelper' status. Need that sisterly advice with your wedding planning, she's my go-to!
