I AM A WEDDING AND PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN THE MIDWEST AND WILLING TO GO ANYWHERE TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR DAY (I CURRENTLY TRAVEL TO ABOUT 1/2 OF MY EVENTS.). I TRULY LOVE WEDDINGS. I TRY MY HARDEST TO LOVE OTHERS AS I AM LOVED (GRANDLY). I'M MARRIED TO DANIEL MCELHENY, WHO IS MY FAVORITE PERSON IN LIFE IN EVERY WAY. I BOX AND LIFT AND RUN A LOT. I COACH CROSS COUNTRY AND TRACK AND FIELD. I LOVE FOOD. I SING LOUDLY WHILE DRIVING. HABLO ESPAÑOL CON FLUIDEZ. BUT, MOST IMPORTANTLY FOR YOU, I LOVE TO TAKE PHOTOS. TO GET TO KNOW ME BETTER, PLEEEEEEASE HEAD ON OVER TO MY INSTAGRAM PROFILE AND GIVE ME A FOLLOW!

I'LL KEEP THE REST OF THIS BRIEF. I BELIEVE IN MEANINGFUL, QUALITY, EMOTIONAL, PRETTY PHOTOS. I CAN'T IMAGINE A TIME WHEN I'M MORE COMFORTABLE AND AT PEACE THAN WHEN I'M BEHIND MY CAMERA, MAKING IMAGES OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU. AS YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER, I'LL BE THE PERSON YOU SPEND THE MOST TIME WITH ON YOUR DAY. STRANGE, YEAH? I WANT OUR INTERACTIONS TO BE NATURAL. I HOPE YOU CAN SEE ME LESS AS A VENDOR AND MORE AS A FRIEND YOU INVITED WHO JUST HAPPENED TO HAVE BROUGHT THEIR CAMERA.

I WANT TO SEE YOU IN YOUR MOST EASY STATE. I WANT TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE LOVELY CARNATION GARLAND THAT YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS SPENT HOURS PUTTING TOGETHER BUT EVEN MORE OF YOU, TEARY-EYED, HUGGING YOUR MOTHER AFTER WALKING BACK UP THE AISLE AFTER MARRYING THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE. PICTURES ARE PERHAPS MY FAVORITE THING IN THE WORLD AND I WOULD BE HONORED TO TAKE YOURS!
