I'm Felicia - architecture junkie, enneagram 4, eternal optimist, puppy lover, believer, and memory curator - aka photographer.
I'm the super girly type that oogles over weddings, but I also grew up mowing the lawn, playing competitive sports, and was required to learn to change a tire before I was allowed to get my driver's license. ;)

In the house I grew up in my mom hung the wedding photos from our family on the wall of the stairway for as many generations back as they existed. The pictures she chose weren’t formal- some were kneeling in church, others were cutting the cake. I remember making frequent stops to look at them and feel transported into their memories. It was a magical feeling.
I’m a little right brained, and a little bit left brained. As a wedding photographer, there couldn’t be a better balance. I’m able to create new and beautiful images, but I’m also not afraid to help with timelines or get people where they need to go. It’s a lovely use of two of my strengths.
I see differently. Because my education started out in architecture, my understanding of space and form is pretty refined. It adds a subtle structure to my images and really informs their context.
I’m a romantic and a believer. I love the idea that God writes a unique love story for everyone. Each unfolds on His terms in ways beyond what we could envision for ourselves. It is amazing to see how each couple is divinely designed, and as I get to know them, it just all makes sense. I love it!
I believe your love deserves so much more than adequate pictures. Your photographer should creatively and perceptively document your day with attention to the idiosyncrasies of your relationship. I'm not the photographer replicating Pinterest photos or taking you to the same locations as my last couple. With each wedding, I set out to document not just the tangible details, but the feelings, atmosphere, and emotion as well.
If you've gotten this far, you've had a chance to explore my work and philosophy and you've realized this is more than just a job to me. It's what fuels my spirit. I'm not punching a clock, 'selling' you pre-fab packages, or interested in perfection. I'm a straight shooter and I want to document your love in the most beautiful, fun, and REAL way possible. My clients are people who let me in all the way. They're not worried about if their tiaras are straight, if their hair is out of place, or if I catch them crying. They know that their memories are best made into beautiful images when they're free to live their day, and welcome me into the fold as an insider. I can't wait to hear about the amazing day you have planned.
