My work is for the dreamers, the romantics, those who love boldly and fearlessly and unapologetically; the idealists and the sentimental souls who will not settle for the mediocre or expected; the bohemians, starry-eyed storytellers and the hopeful hearts who see every day as an adventure. My goal is not only to take photos that will be cherished for years to come, but to capture your spirit, your true and authentic self surrounded by those who matter to you, to make tangible the moments that are unforgettable in the best way I know how. I believe we each shine bright from the inside, and that's what inspires my work. The images that keep me going are the ones of unbridled emotion: unsolicited laughter, deep and meaningful affection; ones than you both see and feel, that tell the viewer a story and show the connection between the subjects.
I'm just your regular old quirky St. Louis native who enjoys provel cheese and knows it's not the heat, it's the humidity. I'm an old soul who found the love of my life, a dude who is young at heart, who balances me out and makes me laugh every day; When he got me a camera as a wedding gift, it reignited my passion for photography, one that I'd let fall by the wayside while I was figuring out how to be a grown-up. After shooting our friends' wedding with film and an old DSLR, ideas started percolating in my head. Since then, I've taken my camera everywhere.
Love changes everything; it is a privilege to witness it, one that should be honored, one that I take very seriously and work hard to respect. If you feel connected to what I do and my work resonates with you, I think we're probably kindred spirits and I can't wait to hear from you.

Nora.Is.Wonderful! She is truly passionate about her work and is extremely talented. The pictures she takes are unique and turned out so well. Far too often do I see professional photos taken with the same type of lighting that is was to soft and honestly looks very basic and unoriginal. (think mason jars, fields of tall grasses/pumpkins, cliche chalkboard signs, baby's breath, etc) This is not the case with Nora. Her photographs are beautiful and have a chic aura around them. I love the pictures she did. Plus she is a wonderful person to work with and is extremely flexible! She is not stingy and will do her best to get as many photographs as possible in a variety of angles.

She's captures the beautiful details
Nora went above and beyond her role as a photographer. On wedding day, she was punctual, organized, skilled, attentive, and so so helpful (she even helped my maid of honor bustle my dress). When she took family and bridal party photos, she was professional but also fun and excited and she worked well with everyone! The pictures she took and edited are so beautiful and stunning - every single one them! Her pictures captured the details that I missed with the chaos that can come on wedding day. I cannot thank her enough. I highly recommend her!
