Let's Celebrate !
You deserve a photographer who cares about every little detail of your best day ever and someone who can document moments that matter for the rest of your life. You want photographs that tell YOUR story. It's the way your sweetheart was in awe of your beauty during the 'first look', the moment your parent shed a tear as he/she gave you away, the way your guests cheered when you were announced as husband and wife and how close you held one another during your first dance. You want photographs that allow you to feel those emotions all over again.
I was born and raised in small town northwest Wisconsin. I have called Tennessee home for the last seventeen years. I'm a dog lover and I have a rescue named Newt. Mexican food and margaritas are my fave and it's all about the guacamole and salsa. I enjoy sipping on one cup of coffee throughout the day while editing the weddings and families I've photographed. Music is a part of my DNA and a big reason why I moved to Nashville. One day I hope to live in an old farmhouse surrounded by chickens, goats, horses and more rescue dogs. Nature is where I find my peace. It can be hiking to a waterfall or sitting quietly on my back porch journaling.
Please know your photography experience with me doesn't start when I arrive with my camera. It starts as soon as you inquire. Communication between us is how I discover what your needs and wants are. I enjoy asking questions and getting to know you as a couple. I look forward to photographing all your outrageous, belly-laugh, candid, emotional, teary-eyed, crazy dance move, romantic moments. I'm the photographer that will be cheering you on and just as excited as those celebrating with you! I want you to have a photography experience that allows you to relax and go with the flow!
If you are planning a wedding in a different state, country or remote location, I travel and love adventure! Photographing couples in a setting with a connection adds an extra dimension. Bonus points if you're considering Ireland, Iceland or Italy.
My current state of obsession is Washington. All photos in the little squares are from northern Washington. Click on the photo for venue location.
Honored is how I feel when I'm chosen to document a couple, a wedding or family portraits. Photography is so much more than just taking a picture. It's about relationships. Every time I hold a camera, it's a reminder of why I love what I do. I'm a photographer because I cherish people, how we relate to one another and how we express ourselves with emotion. Once a photograph is printed, it's the only tangible thing you will hold that allows you to remember your past. You deserve to have prints and albums as memories and a legacy of your life.
All weddings are custom built based on your needs/wants, date and time of year.

I am beyond grateful for my clients. Having me as your photographer means a few things...
I am transparent. You can ask any question and you will get a no B.S. answer.
You are V.I.P. and so is every guest at your wedding and in your family.
You are going to have fun and laugh because that's just the way I roll.
I'm calm and stress free. Please, read my reviews. I have photographed weddings in all types of weather and chaotic family dynamics.
If the kids fall down in mud puddles during your family session.... it's ok because that's real life and I photograph life just as it happens.
I have creative ideas and your input is just as important. Tell me your thoughts. I listen.
The best advice I can give you is to embrace your day and every element. Just celebrate!
First of all, our shoot with her was planned a week in advance as she was visiting the Pacific Northwest and she rocked it! When we met her at Mount Baker it was FREEZING but we all had the best time!! I felt like I had known her way longer than 5 minutes. We laughed, shared stories, talked about and had to pet all the dogs. She is so natural at what she does and I just remember her making me feel so beautiful as she captured my hubby and I so well. I can not thank her enough for the beautiful pictures we got back!! ♥️♥️
Darcy did an amazing job capturing our engagement photos and wedding day! She truly takes time to photograph those special moments. Darcy is quick to respond to emails, super flexible and great about sending you photos in a timely manner. In addition, she is a fun and calm presence who is encouraging and makes you feel at ease throughout the day. She is very talented and a wonderful person. Thank you, Darcy, for capturing the special moments that we will remember forever!
It takes a special talent to capture these priceless memories. Darcy was never intrusive. She was reassuring and complimentary of any ideas we had. She was a very good listener and made us feel as if we were enjoying the company of a special, new friend. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Darcy is such an amazing person and a beyond talented photographer. We felt blessed to have her photographing our wedding. We recently received our photos from our wedding and we are completely in love with them. Darcy truly captured the essence of a relationship (the love, humor and our uniqueness) as well as every beautiful detail of our wedding.
We absolutely LOVED working with Darcy. We fell in love with Darcy's work after seeing our friends' wedding and engagement photos. Darcy made the experience so much fun and made our day so intimate and personal.
Darcy was so awesome! Fun, nice, encouraging, positive, talented, go with the flow, down to earth... I would use her again without a doubt!
Darcy is bad-ass. - Stephen
I cannot say enough good things about working with Darcy. Our wedding was planned in three months due to the military. The day I met Darcy, I knew God had sent her to us. From her calm and collective attitude and being able to hang and actually get pics of military men proves she can handle anything thrown her way.
Darcy did a great job of understanding what our vision for the photos were and asked a lot of great questions. She achieved the casual, more candid look we were hoping for and we have so many beautiful shots from our special day. She was fun, laid back and made the whole experience easy.
I cannot thank Darcy enough for the phenomenal job she did capturing all the energy and excitement from our wedding day. I can't stop clicking through all the amazing photos. I thought it was impossible for me to look normal in candid photos, but Darcy captured so many great candid shots. I love some of the artistic/creative shots she did too. Darcy was so easy to work with and she has such a positive energy. It was great to get to know her before and during the wedding. We can't recommend her enough!
Darcy was an absolute delight to take pictures and to have on my wedding day. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She is very easy going. I didn't have much experience on taking pictures and she walked me through the process effortlessly. She is such a joy to be around. If you love to laugh and feel at ease, Darcy is your photographer.
