I capture genuine moments and emotions so that when others view your photos, they will immediately connect to your experience or your brand.

I've had a camera for as long as I can remember. From the early days of “fashion shoots” during middle school sleepovers, to losing track of time in the dark room at high school, taking photos was a natural interest and talent I’ve continued to refine. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Photographic Arts from the University of Central Oklahoma, and a literal lifetime of photography experience. Side Note - I originally majored in English Literature, because "real job" vs "hobby" mumbo jumbo and I eventually couldn't deny what I was meant to do. So, I minored in it because I wasn't about to let all that work go to waste. (And mad love to high school teachers, because I.could.not.)

As an introvert that prefers deep connection to frivolous small-talk, photography lets me connect with others in a way that’s enjoyable for me while putting everyone else at ease. Comfortable clients make the best photos, so it’s a win-win! Read more about that on the Working With Me page. 

 

Things I love: 
Anything glittery and gold, baking (or something like it), tending to plants with equal parts hesitance and enthusiasm, Harry Potter, dreaming of a simple and quiet farm life — but with more Gossip Girl marathons, 19th century literature, and being a homebody at heart with my husband and our wild child Jax.

I'm Bekah, and I'm Courtney's office manager.

I have a passion for people and for storytelling, which is what makes this job so exciting for me! I can't wait to meet you and work with you.

A few quick things about me:

I'm currently an online journalism student at the University of Oklahoma with a minor in women's and gender studies.

I'm passionate about rescue dogs. I have one of my own named Toby and he is my world, honestly. 

I like to sing show tunes loudly in my car. 

Naps, fuzzy socks, and The Office are a few of my favorite things.
