I'm Elizabeth! A small town Carolina girl living life in Kansas City, Missouri, and I'm a storytelling wedding & lifestyle photographer for joyful life lovers. I'm fueled by soft natural light, coffee and kitty snuggles. You can bet your bottom I'll cry when you cry, laugh when you laugh, and take photos of all the things.
I will never make you smile and say cheese.In fact, I'll only have you smile at the camera a handful of times....and let's just be real, I'm only doing that for your grandma. Your engagement photos and your wedding photos are about you guys, your love, your relationship, and your joy.
I like to keep things simple, and fun, and save my shutter clicks for those natural moments that happen as I ask you guys to do things like bear-hug in the woods. I pack an arsenal of awesome camera equipment (duh), corny jokes, bubbly energy, lots of encouragement, and some solid prompts that might make you feel silly in the moment, but will ultimately result in images that look completely natural and absolutely authentic.

We asked Elizabeth to take our engagement photos knowing we wanted to show Kansas City as part of our story. From the beginning, her sweet personality showed through her emails where she was very responsive & helpful. She was extremely flexible & accommodating! We postponed our shoot due to weather- which she kept an eye on for us all day- and then when we decided to risk it an hour later, she was ready to go & met us on location within the hour. She helped make us feel comfortable in front of the camera, took the time to get to know us, and (best of all) delivered AMAZING photos over 2 weeks ahead of her normal turnaround! Could not recommended more enthusiastically!Sent on 05/28/2020

We loved her!!!
There is no other choice in photography...Elizabeth is the best!! We had our wedding during Covid-19 and had to limit our guests to just immediate family. Elizabeth was willing to do our photography and was a pleasant part of our "Big Day." She was so warm and professional, but still made it feel like a friend taking our pictures. We look forward to sharing more of our special life moments with her.Sent on 06/19/2020

I cannot say enough about how amazing Elizabeth is. She is so much more than a photographer! She was 100% hands down the best decision we could have made throughout the wedding planning process. She was flawless from the first day we met her. When we said goodbye on our wedding night it was like saying goodbye to a friend! We miss her! She is so organized, on top of everything, and so talented. She replies to emails and texts so quickly and keeps wonderful track of what needs to be done when. She makes taking pictures effortless and a fun experience! I was worried that my now husband would not know what to do but she made everything so easy! Choose Elizabeth!! We will be going to her for all of our photography needs in the future!Sent on 01/25/2020
