Wedding Photography for the Feelers

Telling true stories of love and adventure

Welcome! I'm so glad you're here. Your investment starts with the relationship we share. How I connect with my couples is the secret to how I'm able to capture the genuine, beautifully honest story not just of your wedding day, but of you. With that relationship in mind, here's a bit about my why--which becomes your how--you'll get magical, but totally real, wedding photos.

"She is truly fascinated by people in the best way, finding beauty in everything. Her ability to capture magic is unparalleled."

Kind Words

More than moments: it's your STORY.

Carpe the F out of this Diem.


Seriously. Life is fragile, friends. Your wedding will never, ever happen again. This gathering of people who love the heck out of you? Who are all here for YOU? Relish it. Relive it. This is the marrow of your life.

As someone who didn't feel anything for a very long time...


I can tell you that feeling your feels is one heck of a gift. And weddings are all about the feels. If you're not interested in reflecting on what you felt at your wedding, I am not your photographer. If you see your wedding day as something that has to be perfect, I am not your photographer.

If you are ready to embrace Every. Single. Thing this wild and beautiful adventure we call life has to offer, I am your photographer.

So what do you say?


Is your wedding a day to celebrate your love and feel joy in that connection with your people? Is it your best adventure yet?

Then we're probably the right fit.

"Having raw, candid, and emotion filled photos was important to us. All it took for us was viewing Bobbi’s portfolio and from her initial email, we knew immediately she was who we wanted to go with.

Neither of us are really comfortable behind the camera, but Bobbi gave us direction and reassurance to continue what we were doing and all fears went away. She did a good job reminding us to just look at each other and the love was shown through the photos.

Her energy is amazing, she’s an absolutely talented photographer, and she produces incredible results. Do yourself a favor and book her."
