THE GENTLEMAN

THE MERMAID ASSOCIATE SHOOTER

I have loved photography as an art form my entire life. Starting as a hobby, I have seen the absolute joy of capturing memories for people, which has transformed my hobby to a passion and career I love. 

I take pride in my military family more than anything in this entire world. My mom is my absolute best friend, my father supports my family every single day.  My two brothers are 12 and 14 years older than me so you can imagine them being super protective and loving my entire life. I couldn't be more grateful for the relationship I have with them and my loving parents. Without them, I wouldn't be who I am today.

I graduated from ECPI University majoring in health science. During my time at school, my parents bought a lake house in the country in a place called Lake of The Woods. This was an investment that has changed my life in so many unforeseen ways. Perhaps the biggest change was that I met the love of my life, Charlie. He has been my biggest supporter and has pushed me to make these dreams of mine come true! He also happens to be my favorite second shooter. I am fortunate to have a widespread network of family and friends who have supported me through this journey of building my business. 

I am Amanda's cousin and we have both been working together since 2015. She comes to Florida to help me with weddings and she fly's me to Virginia to help her with weddings! When she is booked for a wedding, Amanda will hire me and one more shooter to capture your beautiful day!

I have two beautiful daughters who are my motivation and inspiration every single day. They have opened my heart to a whole new world and I whole-heartedly believe they have made me a better person and artist. I love life, romance, music, and cities with age. I could waste an entire day beside the ocean and getting lost to music. Chocolate is probably my biggest weakness, although my love for puppies might even be bigger. 

I realize how incredibly blessed I am to have a career I love so much and to share it with my cousin is a dream. This is not a hobby for me, this is my life, livelihood, and my passion. 

Working with my sweet Amanda started in 2016 and we haven’t looked back since! I like to call myself the "Gofer" to be funny. I help Amanda with all things from getting ready for the wedding, making sure the GPS is taking us the right way and to helping Amanda and your family any way possible during your big day from moving heavy things, holding grandma’s hand!  
I am ONE semester away from graduating VCU with my Bachelors Degree in Environmental Studies! WOOT - WOOT!
