Happy Photography Company bio picture
  • HI! I’M SO HAPPY YOU’RE HERE!

    I want to impact people. I want to bring happiness around me. I want it to matter. Whether it’s a wedding, family or little kiddos I’m shooting my goal is to not only leave you with a set of beautiful images but a memory of an enjoyable experience.

    My style as a photographer is a hybrid between photo-journalism, art photography and portrait photography. I got my BFA in fine art photography and I aim to be timeless and one-of-a-kind with my work. I want each image to be unique to it’s owner! I love colour and fun in photography (and let’s face it; in life general). Having your picture taken shouldn’t be a dull experience. I adapt my approach with every client because every client is unique and different AND AWESOME. Some clients flourish if you give them more space and you’re a fly on the wall. Others like more feedback and commentary while the shooting is happening. I feel like a photographer should do their best to make you feel comfortable (because most people already are aware there’s a camera in the room). I chat as much or as little to make you comfortable and sometimes even snap when you least expect it to get the candid moments.

    My heart beats for my family. My daughter, Eila is my reason to be better, try harder and love stronger. My husband is my BFF and he’s quite adorable as well.

    I also love cookies, cupcakes, thrifting (people always say I find the best stuff!) and Netflix. I also love fresh cut grass (the smell is the best ever), polka-dots and stripes and interior design. Oh yeah and of course I love my home-Finland and singing to Taylor Swift loudly in my car. And yep, I love The Bachelor and all the Real Housewives! And Jesus is pretty cool too.

///ASHLEY+PATRICK///RED MILE WEDDING, LEXINGTON KY///

Ashley and Patrick’s Red Mile wedding was my last one of 2017 and what a wedding it was to say goodbye to my 2017 wedding season! Soooo much fun!

I know I talk again and again (and them some) how I just get the sweetest, most easy going, fun and loving couples. I keep talking about it because 1)it’s true and 2)I  like to brag how awesome my clients are (#truestory).

Ashley and Patrick are no different. They compliment each other so well, they’re fun, relaxed and if you scroll down also amazing dancers (check out their choreographed first dance below). They’re a joy to be around and it was obvious by the amount of family and friends that supported them on their wedding day.

I’m so super pumped about sharing this gorgeous wedding and that I got to be a part of witnessing their love and dedication for each other!

Congrats you guys and I wish you so so so much happiness and love for the future!

///TALLENT FAMILY///4 FRAMES///

I had the pleasure to travel to Owensboro to shoot The Tallent family officially becoming a family! They got to adopt their four lovely children today and I tell you-what a moving thing it was to be a part of. The family, the love, the hugs, the long wait that has had to happen for this day to come. All of it. I teared up at least good 5-7 today and all from just happiness! Can’t wait to share more!

Congrats guys on officially becoming a family of 6 and choosing me to be a part of such an important day of your lives!!! I’m so darn happy for you all!!!

///SEANA+NICK///FULL WEDDING POST///

Sometimes things come full circle and sometimes so perfectly that you didn’t know they could. Nick and Seana were friends long before they became a couple! And that only shows that friendship is truly so important in marriage!

Also a full circle kinda moment is me shooting Seana’s wedding! I’ve know Seana a good (or most) part of my 2os (back in the good old Dame days) and it’s just so cool now to have shot her beautiful wedding and see her find the love of her life. Like, super cool. Just like Seana and Nick. YOU GUYS ARE COOL!

I’m so happy for you and many many congrats you guys!!
