"Life is a Journey -- and love is what makes that journey worthwhile."
Having been married over 10 years, I know exactly what it is to find that one person...that person that is truly in your corner day in and day out. To know that you are never alone because they've always got your back.
It's an understatement to say I love what I do because it's so much more than that. Weddings make me grateful every day that I finally found that one person to complete my life and make me feel whole.
It may come as a surprise, but I have a Bachelor's Degree in Finance, an MBA, and I've also served 12+ years in the Army National Guard. Although I succeeded in my work in the corporate world and military, I still felt like I was missing something in my life. It took my return from Iraq 7 years ago to realize that life is simply too short to keep putting my photography dream on hold.
I picked up my first digital camera in 2010 and sought out my passion. It's funny how you imagine doing something for so long and then it takes going to war to kick you into high gear about pursuing that one thing. I've loved photography since the day I held a 35mm Film camera in high school. I enjoy listening to and telling stories...love stories, life stories, all stories. As a wanderlust, I enjoy traveling all over the world and experiencing new stories from beyond my little town in good ole Neenah, WI.
I can't even begin to describe how much this kid means to me!! He's just over 2 and every day is a new adventure with him. Learning so quickly and being even more adorable than the day prior. I feel honored to have the love and marriage I have with my husband and want my son to grow up knowing what love is and how truly special it is.
Traveling the world and exploring all different lands, cultures, and foods is something deeply rooted in my soul. I truly believe that travel is the one thing you can spend money on that will make you richer. I am so thankful to have found a partner in life that also enjoys travel, stepping outside our comfort zone, and exploring as we see the world together.
I believe in "Community Over Competition" and helping everyone succeed and prosper. I believe in donating time and energy to make our world a better place. Because I feel so passionately towards community, I have spent many years as a member of the Appleton Jaycees and also lead a group of Appleton Area creative entrepreneurs in this spirit of community over competition.
