I have always loved creating things; from birthday cards for friends and family to DIY Pinterest projects galore! One afternoon, when I was a senior in high school, instead of coming straight home like I was supposed to, I snuck out to the nearest Best Buy to purchase my first digital camera and...man oh man was I excited! I turned into that friend who would sit around with friends and spend the night taking pictures and playing with the settings on my new camera! But never in a million years did I think God would turn that new found hobby into such a passion today! 

Since purchasing my first DSLR camera, I've spent countless hours learning the ins and outs of portrait photography, and was featured on Senior Year Magazine! I am so excited to capture YOUR special memories of one of the best days of your life! I am so incredibly grateful for such a joy-filled and life-giving career!

TOM AND JESS

Meet my Family

Our joy-filled second grader who loves to sing, dance, create, ride horse, and be a "mama-hen" to her siblings.

Our protective 5 year old to both of his siblings. He loves all big
big farm and construction equipment, especially excavators!

The newest addition to our family! She loves growling at us, snuggling up with her blanket, and is already a total book-worm!

JOSEPHINE

Tom loves all things business and farm related. Jess is the photographer, dreamer, and creative at heart.

travel

meatballs, mashed potatoes, corn and gravy all mixed together with a side of lefse, green olives ... and taco Tuesdays of course

food

Days spent outside in the pool, at horse shows, in the tractor, or on vacation with our crazy family are the best!

summer

Give me all the pink, green, yellow, and blue! Then let's take your portraits in front of crazy walls like this!

Whether it's an action-packed movie with Tom on date night or a cartoon with the kids, going to the movies  (with reclining seats of course) is one of my favorites! But don't ask me who the actors are, because I won't be able to tell you!

The Heart Behind 

what I do

It all began with a camera and turned into relationships with amazing people. I believe everyone's paths cross for a reason; whether it is a friendship waiting to be formed, someone to help you with a specific chapter in life, or someone to help you grow as a person.

I believe in joy-filled, life-giving conversations, the sharing of our stories, and great photography of course! Photos that will make you exude delight when you look at them, spilling over into all areas of your life. Photos that remind you of the confidence, strength, and courage you have, the way few other things can.

Let's meet and chat about your wedding day. I want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories, and how you got engaged. 

01

OUR PROCESS

I am here as a resource beyond photography, whether you're looking for recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals. I'm happy to share what we've learned from photographing all of our weddings.

02

OUR PROCESS

I am a big fan of engagement sessions because it's another opportunity to get to know each other before you're big day. Oh, and because you get beautiful photographs that celebrate your engagement.

03

OUR PROCESS

I check-in about two months before the wedding to see how it's all coming together. And to make sure I have everything we need to capture the big day from details about traditions to timelines. 

04

OUR PROCESS

The big day is here! That went by quickly, didn't it? Just know I'm PUMPED to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

I hope the relationship doesn't end after we deliver your photographs. I want to hear about the adventures of married life!!
