I’m delighted you’ve landed on my photography page. Here is where I can give you a sneak peak into who I am as a photographer, graphic designer and owner of Behind the Face Photography.
My professional photography journey began in 2009 while I was studying graphic design at a university in the frozen tundra of Iowa. As a Florida native that was a dramatic climate change, but I’m just that adventurous. I’ve always had a love for photography and chose to take every photography class available at my college. My roommate Geron saw how I glowed behind the camera and asked me to photograph her summer wedding in Oregon. I said yes and I am very thankful she allowed me to capture her precious day.
That one “yes” set into motion a beautiful adventure of capturing dreamy weddings, happy engagements and gorgeous portraits.
My creativity is sparked by my clients and I enjoy getting to know you before the photo shoot. This allows me to tailor the experience to capture who you are and find a setting you’ll feel most natural in. It’s very important to me to provide a memorable experience worthy of being hung on the wall of your home. Everyone always finds my composure to be peaceful yet adventurous. Speaking of peace, I’d like to tell you about my 2nd shooter.
After many years of prayer, I received my sweet answer in July of 2015 when I married the love of my life, Evan Peace. He is my steadfast companion and always beside me hauling my equipment, looking for great spots and serving as my 2nd shooter. I love that we are a team and I find joy in seeing his unique gifts and eye for shots. He also adds an element of merriment which really helps for family shoots. During my last family session, he decided to blow on my belly to make all the kids laugh in a photo. It certainly worked and all of the smiles were ridiculously huge and genuine.
Thank you for taking the time to read a little about who I am and I look forward to creating a most amazing photography session with you!
