I have been shooting professionally since 2010 while living and working in good old Indianapolis, Indiana, but I do love love to travel. My job has taken me around the world shooting destination weddings in places such as Iceland, Japan, Cancun and more! I share a home with my wonderful husband Grant, daughter Harlow and our two dogs, Marshmallow and Cloud.
While focusing on weddings, portraits and families, I take a lifestyle approach being most inspired by real life moments, beautiful sunsets and all things nostalgic. I want to see YOU and those moments that tend to fly by us without documentation. You know the ones. That face baby makes when she is getting hungry, tickle fights, the way he plays with your hair, butterfly kisses, how the sun makes your lover's eyes glow, whispers and every perfect moment between.
I am obsessed with the Loch Ness Monster and cryptozoology in general (the study of unknown species). My idea of the perfect vacation would be frolicking through the highlands of Scotland. I have been an artist my entire life and love to paint and sketch. My favorite movie is the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice (though Keira Knightley rocked the Hollywood version too). Cookie Dough Ice Cream is my best friend. And on my free days, you'll catch me shopping at the local craft store. Tell me about you!

Best decision I made for our wedding
There are few words to describe the appreciation I feel for Violet and her contribution to our wedding day experience. In a world of bright white bridal, she brings mood, depth, drama and a level of vintage nostalgia to all of her photos -- instantly turning every image into something so classic that you have no idea whether it was taken today or 50 years ago. She is worth every single cent we paid her - and truthfully, in retrospect I would pay double because she is worth it.Sent on 01/28/2019

Violet was HANDS DOWN, the best photographer in the world to work with! From our very first meeting I felt like we would become fast friends! She was incredibly flexible, creative and reliable from beginning to finish! Violet carefully guided us to schedule our engagement shoot and was very flexible to reschedule dates as needed to get exactly the style of photos we were looking for! We had Violet shoot our engagement session, an in-home session, and our wedding day...and I already can't wait to come up with another reason to hire her to shoot us again! Her photography skills are impeccable! She is truly an artist! When we received our digital album, we were floored. I loved every single photo and they were all so incredibly different! She is a sweetheart and I would recommend her again and again and again! We love you Violet!!!Sent on 11/07/2017

When I was searching for a photographer for my wedding I didn't want the typical wedding photographer that did all the typical posed shots. I wanted someone that was little more artsy and that felt more candid. When I found her I was in love with her technique and the way she edited the photographs and it felt more like art. I was instantly sold! Meeting her in person she is a completely warm hearted person and is so easy to work with. My husband and I are great at taking goofy pictures and not capturing many great pictures where we both look good but I honestly don't think there are any pictures that she captured that I tdidn't like of us. I would recommend her to anyone in search of a photographer and if you are debating between two she should be your pick because she will not disappoint! As long as she's available she will always be my go to photographer!Sent on 11/13/2017
