I’m a photographer, marriage supporter and wedding professional which all adds up to one excellent combination of qualities that enables me to serve you well. Past couples have described me as trustworthy, strategic, creative, responsive, more than accommodating, and a “wedding therapist”. At the end of the day, I’m a woman in love who has stood where you are right now. I understand you only get one chance with your wedding. As you share your story of love my heart will melt. I’ll get teary-eyed as you walk down the aisle. With my whole heart, I want you to cherish your photography. I work diligently for you to have an incredible wedding photography experience.
When I’m not running my business or photographing weddings, you can find me soaking in a quiet morning sunrise from my kitchen window, dreaming big with my husband Jeff, enjoying a long talk with my Mom, or chasing our son Eli around the backyard. Please view my inspirations by clicking below.
I grew up pouring over my grandparents' and parents' wedding albums. My Daddy Vince and Nana were regal in their white 1950's wedding garb. My parents, a young, excited couple about to embark on their life together. I soaked in every visual I could from these 8x10 prints. Over the years these visuals built a sense of security in me and a connection to my history. They built a desire for a similar legacy in my own life.
In the Fall of 2007, Dad, Coach David Farnham, became very sick. Within weeks we were given a stage 4 cancer diagnoses. We were told to say goodbye. He was in the peak of a state championship football season. I was a freshman in college messing around with a digital camera. Those blurry pictures of his last weeks on earth are all we have left of him. The day of Dad's funeral, I received my first DSLR camera. I still did not know what I was doing with a camera, but I had even more of a purpose to learn photography.
They were sitting at the front of the boat, Nana wrapped in Daddy Vince’s arms. Nana’s new hair had grown in a radiant white since her chemo treatment. Daddy Vince’s Spanish skin making the perfect background for her fair complexion. They glowed like two newlyweds. Nana passed in 2013. All I needed was to find this picture. Could I reach for a print? No, I needed to remember the year and what device I stored my files on back then…I remember this moment like it was yesterday and ache for it like it was decades old.
God has given me great blessings and great purpose. Jeff and Eli are daily inspiration. They inspire me to preserve our own moments as a family and print those moments so our stories are always within reach. They inspire me to love deeper, serve intentionally, play harder and pray harder! Not everyone has a photographer in their family, so during my couples' wedding experience I play the role each family needs to create their legacy with imagery and heirloom prints and albums.
