I document unique love stories for those heartfelt, adventurous and carefree souls. I truly vibe best with those who don’t mind getting their dress a little dirty, enjoy living in the moment and truly appreciate the beauty Mother Nature has to offer. I am a huge extrovert, and love making new friends. You’ll find me spending my free time sea glass hunting on the beach, sipping on a coffee or paddleboarding in nearby coves. 🙂
