My journey as a wedding photographer has spanned 10 years and two states – read more below!
THE TIMELINE OF
Where I'm From
Although I was born and raised in a small town in Northeast Tennessee, I moved to Lubbock, Texas in March of 2021 and love everything about this sometimes insane dust bowl!
My First Camera
I picked up my first camera (a hand-me-down film camera from my dad) at the age of 10! From there I learned the ins and outs of film photography, how to get things technically correct without the help of an editing program, and how to develop my own film.
The Savannah Creative
I started The Savannah Creative while pursuing my Bachelors Degree at East Tennessee State University. In 2020, I celebrated 10 years in business! Savannah is my middle name, after the dreamy city in Georgia! While weddings and elopements appeared on the menu a little later in my career, I built the foundation of my company with maternity and newborn portraits.
My First Wedding
I officially shot my first wedding in the Spring of 2011! It was such a special moment in time for me and I love looking back on those images still to this day!
Since that very first wedding, I have fallen in love fast with weddings and elopements and just how special they are. For most of my clients, this is the biggest day of their lives thus far, and it's such an honor for me to be there! I have since been featured on blogs and websites like Something Turquoise, The Knot, and Zola!
Day to Day
These days, I typically shoot about 20 weddings per year. This allows me to focus on each and every occasion and properly tell its story. It also gives me time for fun things like spontaneous trips to Disney, midnight Marvel movie premieres, hiking in the Rockies, and flying back home to Tennessee to see what new baby goats my mom has on her farm.
