Announcement: Returning to Full-Time | Destination Wedding Photographer

I’m Returning to Full-Time

When I went back to college in 2014, I knew I wouldn’t be able to serve as many couples per year. I was sad about that, but I knew getting a bachelor’s degree was one of my biggest personal goals. Between 2014 and 2016 I could only allow about 10 weddings per year because I needed to focus on school as well as travel for nearly every single one of them! I very quickly became familiar with the airports surrounding my small college town of Bloomington, IN (shoutout to IND and SDF!)

There were a million late nights, a constant balancing act between business owner and college student, and plenty of carbs to keep me going as I ran back and forth across the country. I’m so glad I pushed through because I have had some of the best experiences here at Indiana University. I have gained lifelong best friends, my partner -Vincent, an enlightening education, and some amazing memories! It was definitely one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but I’m happy to say I graduated in December of 2016 with a bachelor’s in Liberal Studies and a minor in Mathematics.

With this marked off the checklist, I’m ready to return to full-time wedding photography! I’ll be traveling, photographing sessions and weddings, and sharing my life with you on the blog and social media regularly. I plan to hold a consistent schedule here on the blog as well as posting on my Instagram and Facebook often! I am also prepared to take on 15-20 weddings in 2017 (I still have some dates open!) and have a goal of reaching 20-25 weddings for the 2018 season.
