Wilmington Wedding Photographers
I’m a thirty-something millennial/elder emo kid/full time third wheel. I’m a Leo AND a Gryffindor - double lion. My love language is sarcasm. I laugh A LOT, often at myself. I chase sunsets and full moons as frequently as possible.  35mm film will alway be my first love. I was born in Ohio but I was made for the beach, and honestly, exploring this whole big wide world. Between weddings, I’m mostly traveling, catching live shows at Greenfield Lake (best venue ever and you’ll never convince me otherwise), and hanging with my very sassy Samoyed - Luna. If you don’t know that dog breed I promise you should google it. And yes, I did name her after Luna Lovegood.

“When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.”

Lightbloom Photography is an award-winning fine art & natural light photography company based in Wilmington, North Carolina – but available for hire world wide. I officially launched my business in 2013 after getting my degree in Fine Art and Film Photography, and I’ve been working as a professional photographer since I graduated in 2010. I’m a wedding photographer for the wild at heart and the loudly in love. I’m obsessed with laughter and silliness and couples who aren’t afraid to be themselves around each other. I want your genuine personalities to be felt in the photos. I prefer to spend a wedding day focusing on photos full of authentic moments. My style is majorly candid and natural, with a fun and fine art touch. I offer 35mm film packages too!

I don’t believe your photos are supposed to be perfect, they’re supposed to look like art. They’re supposed to make you feel exactly how you felt in the moment and bring you back to that for years to come.

Things that inspire my work: film, vivid color, laughter, Wes Anderson movies, straight lines, symmetry, landscapes, and love connections that you can feel in the photos.

Lightbloom Photography proudly serves couples in all forms. Love wins. Always.
