Behind the Lens

I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection and beauty wherever I go.

behind the lens

I'm gabbie

A wife, former nurse, and full-time wedding photographer. I have been blessed with the sweetest career, and I am my best self behind the camera. I love capturing and preserving meaningful and beautiful moments all while meeting new people and building lasting connections. I aim to create images that are light, timeless and make my clients feel joy. 

I love nothing more than spending my days slowly, carefully, with intention. Read on for a little more about me and my favorite things.

Hopeless romantic, lover of light, travel, food, and the soft, glowing colors brought to life on film. 

my favorite things:


places i've been

Cancun, Mexico, with the Bahamas as a close second. I also love Charleston… and New York. 


guilty pleasure

drinking too much espresso and buying too many pairs of shoes.. 



Spending time decorating my home, or mornings in my garden.



I could literally eat sushi every single day of my life. (Cocktail hour? Martini, please!) 



My husband. My rock, my best friend, my love. He plays a huge part in making my dreams come true. 


part of my job

Those moments right after the ceremony when the "just married" feeling sinks in!!
