I’m Destiny.

I’m an elopement and intimate wedding photographer absolutely obsessed with all the tiny little things.

I feel the most at home on the road less traveled. Being close & personal, all up in your business, and forming all the pieces that make you who you are into those bits of magic worth remembering. I’m all about actively creating a trusting space for you to express your love to each other with no fear of judgement. Getting your photo taken requires you to strip down some barriers and be vulnerable with me. For some people, that’s a really big ask and I want you to know I never ask it lightly. I’m intentional with you and your loved ones to ensure everyone has a rad experience.

And it isn’t about how comfortable you are in front of the camera or your reason why you chose to say f*ck timeless and hell yes to the real, raw, and messy. It’s about the two of you. The actual, real-life, human bits that made you fall in love in the first place. I’m just the insanely lucky person who gets to witness it and capture your memories for now & for later.

I always want to enable my couples to see how truly worthy they are right now and create a space where you’ll feel protected, confident, and free. Free to be you and love it.

The opportunity to create with Destiny is an absolutely wonderful experience; one that I would gladly repeat again and again. She is a joy to be around and her passion for her craft truly shows as she will squat low, climb high, and lay down on the pavement to get just the perfect angle for a shot! We felt comfortable right away as Destiny encouraged us to "get weird" and I really enjoyed the way she guided us through moments together instead of putting us in cookie-cutter poses. The results were completely stunning and I couldn't be more thrilled with the images! If you are looking for a photographer that will make you feel like royalty on your big day and every time you look back on your photos then look no further and book her now!!!

Eloping was the fun part, being alone on your Wedding day is another! Not only was Destiny so literally felt like one of my besties was there! Her photography is why I booked with her and her presence was just as phenomenal! I don’t think I have the proper vocabulary to explain how truly moving this session was.

I don’t know where to begin. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. I’d been frustrated on my search for a photographer since my husband and I are both quiet, introverted people who love rain and darkness. We didn’t want forced photos in a cornfield or by a windmill. Destiny was everything we wanted. Her communication beforehand was excellent, and she helped me block out realistic times for things like family photos, newlywed pictures, and even my getting-ready times. (Her experience with wedding planning shone through exceptionally.) On the wedding day, she was the perfect presence. She made sure I got the specific photos I wanted, she found every single piece of my laborious DIY work and captured it in perfection. She made sure she knew what kind of photos I wanted (candid and friend-oriented more than posed and family-based). She captured every moment, from the heartiest laughs to the most painful grimaces. I couldn’t say enough good about her, just know she’s the photographer you’re looking for.

My experience with Destiny for my engagement session was filled with so much fun and excitement. Within our time together she captured our love poetically, sealing them into timeless photos. During our session, we felt so natural around her and had full confidence in how amazing our photos were going to turn out. The way she directed us was so easy and clear, it felt effortless for her to find the shot. She always knew exactly what she was doing and naturally caught the exact vision we’ve been dreaming about. Since day one of reaching out to her, she’s always been super responsive and professional with everything. I’m honored to have Destiny as my photographer and can’t wait to see the magic she’ll do when I tie the knot. I highly HIGHLY recommend Destiny to anyone who is looking for an amazing professional photographer. She will make your dreams come true, so book with her asap!

I was INSANELY surprised by our shoot with Destiny! My wife and I knew she was talented just by looking at her portfolio, but I feel she gave us so much more than just beautiful photos! We felt so comfortable with her and honestly, didn't think we could, comfortably, have such an intimate experience in front of a camera! That sounds crazy! And it is, because you can see it captured in every single photo! My wife and I are so very thankful to have had such beautiful photos taken!
