Artist 

Statement

I think of my images as the puzzle pieces of an unfolding story happening in front of me. They’re little moments that capture the honesty and pure emotion of a wedding day, focusing subtlety on candid and vivid feelings, no shot list or preconceived notion of how it will look. What you’ll find in my work are natural interactions, stolen glances, laughter or tears in instances when people are so present they forget they’re being photographed.

My intention every time I have a camera in my hand is to document real smiles, sincere expressions, unprompted emotions. I feel that is what gives my photographs the candid simplicity they’re known for.

It’s a privilege to create images that loved ones will keep forever and above anything and everything else, I want them to look at their photographs and remember, even decades down the line, the joy and love they felt on that day. I want to create photographs that bring pure joy to you and your loved ones.

DISCOVER MY 

History

I've lived with a camera within arm’s reach for as long as I can remember. That spin of a disposable camera wheel was the soundtrack of my childhood. Well, that and Taylor Swift...who actually inspired me to get my first digital camera when she did a commercial for the Sony TX7 Cybershot! But even though Taylor Swift’s hilariously awkward camera clicking inspired teenage me to invest in a camera, my passion for moments-turned-mementos runs far deeper.

When I was very young, my mom passed away. And just two years later -- on Mother’s Day of all days -- my grandparent’s house, my home, burned to the ground. Before I learned basic addition, I learned what it felt like to lose, to miss, to grieve. When I saved a tile from our home just because my mother had once walked on it -- a tile I still have to this day -- I grasped in my own childlike way why keepsakes matter. Although life is fragile and moments are fleeting, we can catch onto them by creating heirlooms. And when I found a photo of my mom in her wedding dress, a fire inside me started to burn. I knew I needed to turn blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments into something that lasts. And I knew I could do that through photography.

But even though my photography roots grew from something painful, the joy photography has brought into my life is something I’ll be forever grateful for. My childhood passion stayed with me through college as I graduated with a degree in Photography and Fine Art. The more I learned, the more I loved it. And today, with a camera in one hand and a Chick-fil-a frosted lemonade in the other, I use everything I’ve learned -- everything I love -- to create breathtaking galleries that tell the story of the day you say, “I do.” By carefully capturing dynamic movement and delicate details, I tell the whole story so it can be relived for decades to come. And, like the zesty little lemon in your sweet tea, I bring an upbeat enthusiasm to your planning process and to your wedding celebration.

 it’s really about telling the story as honestly and authentically as possible.

My approach is that I come to you with the motive of documenting your day as things happen, without intervention, and minimal posing. A "fly on the wall"  capturing photographs of what things felt like and not just what they looked like. I study you and your loved ones movements with the intention to capture split second moments that are most meaningful.

The purpose with this approach is to encourage you and your loved ones to be fully present with each other while I document your day genuinely.

"our gallery not only reflected who we were as a couple, but also gave us a gift of reliving our wedding day."

I had the pleasure of having Perry Ann photograph my wedding earlier this year and I was BLOWN away by the gallery . I felt so beautiful in each of my photos, and that they not only reflected who we were as a couple, but also gave us a gift of reliving our wedding day. She is a true artist, professional, and incredible at her craft. Highly recommend working with her if you're seeking a photographer - you won't regret it!
