In an ideal world you would find me roaming the streets of Italy with my husband and our two dogs - a pastry in one hand and my camera in the other. I'm a travel-obsessed, dog-loving, 20-something and the owner and lead photographer at Tiger Lily Photography, a Minnesota & Arizona based wedding, boudoir & portrait photography company.

When my grandma passed away in early 2018, my family and I sifted through hundreds of photos of her. She had been suffering from dementia for nearly a decade, so photos were the only way we were able to relive and retell her story.
For every client I'm fortunate enough to serve, my overarching mission is to create an unforgettable experience while producing genuine, beautiful, and timeless images from each season of life. I want to help craft and share the story of you, a story that will be cherished for years and generations to come.
I value your memories as if they were my own and I truly want them to live on forever. Your story matters and it deserves to be shared.

Andrew & I got married in our hometown!
