Northern Glow Photography

Always a creative soul, I inevitably made my artistic passions a professional reality. As an erstwhile Graphic & Web Design major, I am constantly looking for beauty in the world around us. I apply my creative training and years of experience to portray the things I love with a unique vision through the lens.

Photography has become my livelihood. 10 years of photography and over 150 weddings captured and I am still excited for the next wedding or session on my calendar. My work has brought me a lifestyle that gives me the opportunity to work with so many amazing individuals and families, build friendships and travel to stunning locations. My job is to seek beauty and put people in it! What more could I ask for? The future is an exciting thing. My bags are packed and I eagerly wait for the next adventure!

I married the love of my life in 2016. We’ve been blessed with two charming daughters. It’s wonderful to watch them explore life in their sincere and innocent way. I am learning to prioritize peace every day. Seeking better ways to achieve this has helped me find meaning and inner happiness. Our family is thriving!


Love Notes

“I spent a lot of time researching photographers, I was looking for someone that captured joy, love and nature in a beautiful and natural way – and I am so glad we ended up going with David! Pictures: wowza! They turned out so magical and dreamy – he made sure that there was a mixture of more natural candid pics and also more posed/formal pics, which I appreciated. I wish I could attach a pic to this review. Communication skills over email and phone: Stellar, seamless, effortless, professional. He sends a pre-wedding survey to make sure all the logistics are worked out. Communication skills in person: Also stellar, he has a super chill, soothing and fun personality. He truly felt like he was a part of our family! We skied together the next day and it was awesome. GO WITH DAVID YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT <3”

“David was an absolute pleasure to work with. He advertises his outdoor scenery, but I realized after that he really captured the “fun” we had at our party. Everyone who sees our photos can see just how much joy we had on our day. David was a wizard with his camera… we had some extremely harsh lighting for our outdoor photos, and he still worked magic. Some things I really appreciated about David: -Timely responses and flexibility with rescheduling due to COVID – Easy going, made us feel very comfortable and had all the ideas for shots while also incorporating our preferences. – Kept the flow going the day of… we were not rushed taking pictures but also didn’t waste any time getting family portraits – Online photo album – Shared McDonalds with me and my husband before the ceremony :)”

“David was a blast to have along our wedding journey. He exudes talent, and we feel so lucky that he was able to capture our wedding day. We knew sitting down at our initial meeting that we wanted David to be there with us through the many stages of wedding planning. I was nervous to be in front of the camera for our engagement session, and David’s easy going personality, humor, and ease behind the camera made that quickly vanish. He remained patient as we navigated the many challenges of planning a wedding during COVID-19, and I am so grateful we will get to work with him again next year when our loved ones can be close again. I would wholeheartedly recommend David to anyone looking for quality photos that truly capture personality, and I am grateful that I get to fill my walls with his work!”
