Guess what my super power is? I can freeze time! Haha I totally wish! But in a sense that is kind of what I do! I am able to capture the love, laughter, happiness, and tears in those truly great moments that soon become a beautiful memory, but last a lifetime. I am a joyful, adventure seeking, warm, destination elopement & wedding photographer who is ready to tell your story with a passion! 

Wowza!!! So happy you want to know more!

you can call me MJ

Most days you can find me planning my next trip or binge watching the HGTV channel with my mama because I am obsessed with anything that has to do with home design and renovating.. I also love to read the Bible and teach others about it! I am a good mix of being an introvert and extrovert. I love to go out and dance (not to toot my own horn but I am a pretty good dancer). Sometimes that introverted side of me just wants to snuggle up on the couch with a hot cup of joe.

Traveling is one of my favorite things to do! I have been to Italy, Greece, and Brazil so far. And believe me I was eating very good, so food is definitely my love language.  I frequently talk in other accents because I am trying to learn several languages right now. My best friends would tell you I’m funny, the life of the party, and a positive soul. 

i love collecting moments and living a life full of adventures.

The biggest reason why I absolutely loooovvvvee being a photographer is capturing those celebratory moments in life that deserve to be remembered, whether it’s achieving a milestone, creating memories with your loved ones, or saying the biggest “YES” to your forever partner. I want to capture it all and tell the story that you create through my lens. I don’t just want to photograph you, then bye, that’s it. I am more involved than that. I help plan, consult, give helpful tips from previous experience to make sure everything goes smoothly so that you can enjoy and HAVE FUN,!!!!

“I’m the kind of person who will go above and beyond (buzz lightyear style) to get those great shots and make you feel super special because YOU DESERVE IT! My past clients (aka friends) tell me that I am super upbeat, cheerful, and they feel comfortable around me. . Let’s just say I got you because I am an all or nothing type of person. And believe me I AM ALL IN!
