The girl behind the gold hairpin…

I started Gold Hairpin Films almost four years ago. Since then I’ve been a part of a crazy awesome amount of weddings.  I have witnessed some just plain magic over the years and I was lucky enough to be there to capture it. My hope is my love for sunlight, deep tones, and small details come across in my films.  I dig spontaneity, the non-traditional, and just basically capturing what makes you, you. I love to write. I love music. I love visual media. And I have a thing for combining the aforementioned.

A few other random facts about me:
