I grew up in the outskirts of North Platte, Nebraska, where sunlight became my best friend. In a simple, small town, I learned to use natural elements like sunlight, clouds and water to highlight the details most photography doesn’t capture.
When I was 10 years old, my parents gave me my first Canon camera. From the day I received it, I knew I would never put it down. For practice, I photographed my sisters and friends. At the young age of 15, I started my own photography business and began photographing families, children and babies
After I earned enough money, I moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, to dip my toes into the wedding photography industry. Soon, Tux & Gown Studios was born. Since that day, I have photographed more than 350 weddings – each unique and beautiful in its own way.
