6 years ago, I was a manager working a stressful job in event management. Everyone assumed I was living the dream to be in a leadership position at the age of 21… but really, I was dreading walking into the office every day. I hadn’t found my purpose and it drained the life out of me.
Safe to say, I lived for the weekends!
When I was out photographing families and weddings - I came alive. My eyes twinkled a little more and my smile was wider than ever.
One day, I was sitting in my car after a shoot and scrolling through the photos on the back of the camera when it hit me:
This is my purpose in life...
I quit my safe job to dive into photography full-time.
Capturing unforgettable moments in a relaxed environment is where my heart thrives.
I took everything I learned in my event planning days about creating an amazing experience and channeled that into creating the ultimate photography experience.
And here I am, 6 years later getting to connect with amazing people (like you!) through photography by bringing your memories to life.
Do YOU want a memorable, relaxed and stress-free photography experience that produces incredible photos you can cherish for life?

I guess you could say I'm a lover of all things cute and sweet: babies, cute doggos, small (fast) cars, and chai lattes.
When I'm not taking photos, you'll either find me spending quality time with my little family, taking the dog for a walk or at the coffee shop chasing an almond chai latte.
My love for families and dogs has now translated into my work, as many of my amazing clients like to include their children and/or "fur children" in their weddings and sessions - I am 100% here for it!
telling your story in a way that reminds you of the love that exists in your life.
I've always had a deep love for connection and emotion - the type of love without boundaries.
I've experienced the importance of connection through my husband, Sam, who is the reason my smile keeps getting wider and life keeps getting better - regardless of the challenges it throws at us. For me, it's the small, seemingly insignificant moments that are the richest.
This is why I'm so passionate about
I've become known as the 'happiest photographer' and for over 10 years I've been telling stories about those you love most - your partner and your family and creating stunning fine art pieces for you to enjoy for life.
...whatever that looks like.
Capturing love is what makes my heart come alive and I will be there from beginning to end, giving my everything in pursuit of telling your story.
Expect me to be your photographer-friend who will easily fit in with your wedding or family. I will bring the upbeat energy and positivity with one goal in mind - to bring a smile to your faces.
You will feel comfortable, confident and at ease in front of my camera and you can bet that there will be plenty of laughter and quality chats along the way.
I'll always be looking for the little moments in between - the ones you might miss in the whirlwind of activity. The details, the hand squeezes, the cheeky look from Grandma or the bear hug from your little ones.
Every moment is an opportunity to capture love - and I will be there for it all!
"Hannah I am crying.
Thank you so, so, so, so, so much. I cannot BELIEVE this is only the sneak peek. There are SO many beautiful photos. They are everything we ever wanted and more."
"Hannah, how you captured the way we looked at each other at certain times, and we can tell exactly what's being communicated, is a true talent.
We are still brought to tears months later looking through our album and slideshow! We can never thank you enough."
"Hannah was so natural and she managed to catch the happiest, most authentic moments.
Working with Hannah made us feel at ease and her professionalism with a personal touch is unmet by any other photographer."
"Hannah, they're just incredible!
We just sat in the car and sobbed looking at then, You did such an amazing job, and to think this is just the sneak peek!
We're so glad we picked you, we couldn't have asked for a better photographer."
I want to know your story, your hopes and dreams and your desires for your photos so that we can produce images and fine art pieces that you can't stop talking about!
I’m here for more than just the photos - I will provide tips on what to wear, locations, weather, timing and fine art pieces so that your experience is amazing from beginning to end.
I am not content with the norm. I’m constantly pushing my creative boundaries and looking for new, meaningful ways to tell your story.
I will be your biggest cheerleader to make sure there's always a smile on our face.
What you see is what you get. I will always be honest and operate from a place of integrity and transparency.
