You’re a dreamer. You live for adventure, in every sense of the word, accompanied by the person you love most. The raw beauty of nature leaves you breathless. You value genuine connections with real human beings.

The couples I work with are crazy about each other and about life. They prioritize the true meaning of their day over aesthetics, infusing it with personal elements or untraditional details. They desire images that capture the essence of who they are in a creative, genuine way. And most importantly, they aren’t afraid of getting a little dirty to make it happen.

Your passion and the little quirks that define you are what inspire me most. The best wedding experiences are collaborative in nature, and being able to relate to your photographer is a huge part of that. I want to know you and be a part of your journey.

Hi, I’m Paige.

I’m what you might call a deep feeler. I believe as humans, we are all interconnected. In my mind, there is no such thing as a chance encounter. The places you go and the people you meet along the way will all become a part of your story, somehow.

As far as labels go, I’ve always been the bookworm. I love how words can lift me off pages to new worlds beyond my wildest imagination. I went to college for journalism because I wanted to tell stories too. I even joined the student newspaper. The only problem with that was words have never come easily to me and the media world runs on tight deadlines. The stories I was trying so hard to write down always felt unfinished.

I remember the few friends who introduced me to photojournalism and how it changed everything. From the second I picked up the camera, I felt it in every fiber of my being that I needed to do this. It gave me a purpose, broke down borders, and allowed me to communicate in a way words failed. But still, it wasn’t enough.

I wanted to slow down and savor these moments more than the field allowed. To connect with the people I was photographing on a more intimate level. Wedding and portrait photography became the perfect intersection.

I’m passionate about what I do, but even more about the people who invite me into their lives. I think it’s amazing you found your person in this world and I want to be there to celebrate your commitment to each other. I’m lucky enough to be in love with my best friend, Andrew. More than anything, we love to be outside, exploring the world together. We also have a goofy chocolate lab named Yager.

If you’re looking for someone who will look out for you on your wedding day and who truly cares about you as a person, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s connect and create an experience that transcends an image.
