The Best of 2017

When I look back on everything that has happened this year, it’s a little overwhelming. This year was filled with so much joy and love, and I was blessed to work with so many beautiful people. In a short recap, here are some of my favorite memories from 2017:

I photographed Charles & Emily’s engagement session and afterwards Lyndon and I went to the beach. When we left, we were engaged!

In March, we took a 2-week trip to South Africa and on our way there we had a layover in London for the day.

I was so blessed to be able to mentor these four girls this year about photography + business! We had such a blast together and I’m so excited for the next big educational opportunity next year – the Joelle Elizabeth Workshop!

In September, we got married and oh what a beautiful day it was!!

Sam and I in February v. December!

What a year it has been. I’m so grateful for each and every one of you who made it so special. Thank you! Here’s to next year and the new memories we’ll create together.



If you’re interested in working together in 2018, email me at for details + scheduling! I’d love to work with you!
