Sometime back in middle school I picked up a camera and then just never set it down. What started off as photographing my mom's knick knacks ended up with traveling to beautiful locations watching couples get married and calling that my job. In Spring 2015 I graduated with an Associate's Degree in Visual Communication with a strong concentration in Photography. Fancy words for I got a degree in taking photos. 

I am a huge animal lover. I am a cat mom of three majestic cats (Pudge, Chloe, Ghost). We also have our protective dog, Wade Wilson (Wilson is said with a French accent though). True crime is my side passion, skulls are my go to decor for home and clothes. Harry mother-effin Potter. My hubby and I are HUGE nerds when it comes to the HP series. We even have matching Deathly Hallows tattoos! August 2021 we welcomed our first child, Emmett Grimshaw aka Future Dungeon Master - it’s been pretty cool.

My hair color changes like a chameleon, I swear and make weird noises when I'm excited, I still listen to all my high school emo bands and I love food [but especially Mexican].

What about you?

About me

Imagine seeing Edward from Twilight for the first time except less sparkly white, less cringey and more punk. It was a deep crush I had since I met my partner, James, back in 2007 at the high school cafeteria. We began dating after years of friendship in 2011. Since then it's been vacations, concerts, college, apartment, marriage, buying a home then welcoming our son Emmett to this world. We've had our share of ups and downs these past 10 years but I can't imagine getting through them with anyone else.

My Approach

Traditional isn't my thing. Super posed for every photo is not my thing. I'm kinda weird, kinda moody, and sometimes my photos reflect that. I prefer natural light BUT I love messing around with lighting scenarios and creating some in depth shots as well, see my portfolio for examples. 

I want to photograph what makes you guys unique, how you make each other laugh, the look of love between you two. More than that, these photos should show the vibe of your wedding, the fun your guests experience, the emotion that is felt throughout the day. And with that sweet cherry on top, I'll be your helper too. Buttoning your train, tying your shoes, assisting Grandma to her chair and making you feel on top of the world is my top priority.

To be completely honest, I'm not like all the rest.

Whatever the question was, it was meaningful and it was truthful. You have agreed to spend you life with someone through the ups and downs till death do you part. Wether it be an elopement in the woods with 4 people or an extravagant wedding in Downtown CLE with 300 guests, your photos should reflect one of the best days of your life in the most beautiful way possible. I will cry and laugh with you and I will do just about anything to get the shot you desire. Feel like you’re awkward, weird or nerdy? That's okay so am I (all of the above). I think we will be a good match. Love being in front of the camera and thrive on the attention? Thats cool too - I’ll give you all my best attention for some great dramatic imagery.


It all started with the big question...

or
giggles?

WILL YOU MARRY ME?

WILL YOU BE MY PARTNER FOR LIFE?

WILL YOU BE MY PLAYER #2 IN SUPER MARIO FOREVER?
