I'm just a graphic designer who fell in love with photography. But I'm also a 30 something year old wife, cat mom, and Indiana transplant. I thrive in sunshine and live for beautiful sunsets, flannel shirts, pumpkin spice anything, and sweater weather. I love everything Disney, pink, and rose gold. I love to travel. I have a bachelors degree in graphic design and am self taught in photography. I'm a Nikon girl. I would describe my photography style as bright and airy. I love shooting weddings the most- I love a good happily ever after!

My goal as a designer and photographer is to capture love in its entirety. To watch your family start and grow. I want to help you capture the best moments in life and give you something beautiful to remember them with for years to come. I absolutely love what I do and I am honored when people choose me to capture life's wonderful milestones for them.

Whether you're getting married, starting a family, or expanding one, I'd love to meet you!

I'm Lisa, and I'm so glad you're here.

Meet My Family

My Prince Charming - Tyler

My husband and biggest supporter. He is currently a full time student at IUPUI so you can usually find him in class, working on homework, or making all my farmhouse dreams come true. But he's also a huge Alabama and Denver Broncos fan.

My Fur Baby - Tinkerbell

My ride or die and biggest pain in the butt. We've been together 11 years so far. Her favorite pastimes are napping on "her" ottoman, cuddling in my lap, playing with her favorite ribbon, lookin' cute, and begging for human food. 

I hate coffee, but I am addicted to the Starbucks pink drink.
I have a bit of an obsession with Disney ear headbands and matching Loungefly backpacks.
There is never a time where I don't want to see pictures of your pets.
My favorite TV show is Once Upon a Time.
I'm a true crime junkie. If I'm not watching OUAT you can find me watching all the Datelines, Forensic Files, Cold Justice, Snapped, etc. 
If I have to wear shoes, I wear sandals. I hate tennis shoes. I'm barefoot whenever possible though.
I was raised in a very small farm town in Illinois (I'm talking less than 100 kids in my graduating class, small).
I eat more pasta than any human probably should.
I'm a bit of a nerd. I enjoy Harry Potter, Twlight, Star Trek, Star Wars, and The Lord Of The Rings.
Ok, I more than just enjoy HP, I'm actually a huge fan.  #GryffindorForLife
I'm a 1w2. The Reformer and The Helper.
Scentsy is my jam (I have more than 10 warmers), but you'll still always find a Yankee Candle burning in my home.
There is no place I'd rather live more than Indianapolis, but Chicago will always be my first love. 
Bears & Blackhawks baby!
