Hi, I'm elizabeth!

I’m a photographer who specializes in weddings, elopements, and engagements in the Hocking Hills region of Ohio. I use the sandstone cliffs, waterfalls, and Hemlock groves as a backdrop for documenting real connections and sweet moments. If you are planning a wedding, elopement, vow renewal or are interested in scheduling an engagement or portrait session, please get in touch! I’d love to chat with you about your plans.


▪︎ I'm a Hocking Hills-born photographer and educator.

▪︎I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography from Ohio State University and am working towards a Master in Art and Visual Media (expected graduation 2024).

▪︎I am an award-winning photojournalist and have also received many recognitions within the wedding industry. Fun fact: I photographed three former POTUSes.

▪︎I have taught photography at community colleges and non-profits.

▪︎I reside in Logan, Ohio, with my husband Ryan, two adorable boys, Huxley and Elan, and three sweet kitties, Oscar, Willow, and Goldie.

▪︎I am an avid reader and love lo-fi music, exploring nature, new food experiences, and sci-fi/fantasy film.

▪︎My favorite epic adventures have been camping on Cumberland Island National Seashore with wild horses, backpacking the continental divide in Colorado, and hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina with my family.

Elizabeth was spectacular! Our engagement and wedding photos are so beautiful. We had photos taken at our lodge and at Hocking Hills State Park and she knew all the right spots. She was very kind and helpful every step of the way. Every perfect moment was captured and we are so glad we had Elizabeth!
