Hey there! I'm Hanna. Thank you for taking the time to look at my little corner of the world. I love the lake, traveling, my pup, my family, coffee at literally anytime of the day, and a whole lot of Jesus. I found my love for photography when I was in the 6th grade. My dad bought my first camera before he took me on my first mission trip to a small village in the mountains of Haiti. That trip I found both of my loves. I've never looked back from being able to help people in a real way and capturing all of life's real moments. Since I get to tell so many love stories, here's a little about mine! This past May I just married my high school sweetheart :') We met lifeguarding when I was 15, and I have been hooked ever since! He is my absolute biggest cheerleader for this business. He challenges me, leads me, cherishes me, and makes me feel like the only girl in the world. I could go on forever about how much I love him!

Our love story started long before we were even born! I always say that I have had the privilege of coming from a lineage of love. Mine & David’s grandparents have both been married for 55+ years & are more in love today than the day they met. My parents have been married for almost 25 years, have four children & still can’t keep their hands off of each other. Ask anyone who knows them. EW, I know right. But that’s exactly how I want to be & how I want our future children to see me & David. I can’t wait to carry on this tradition & I hope you can or start one for your family too! After all, the weddings are amazing, but it’s more about the marriage than the wedding. AMEN!

Love stories are only the beginning of things that I photograph! I love having a front row seat at all of life’s big & small moments as your families grow! From the wedding, to anniversaries, to celebrating landing your dream job, finding out you’re expecting, maternity, labor & delivery, newborn, to your little babies senior photos! I can’t wait to go through all of life’s moments together!

Not until this year did I truly understand the weight & importance of photos. When those big moments, or just doing nothing moments are all you have left of someone so dear to your heart. If time could only stand still. This is a tribute to my brother Luke Jeremiah Davis, forever in our hearts. #LLLD
