Whenever I pick up my camera, I'm searching for the dreamiest light and to capture moments that feel like YOU - whether that's goofy, joyful, romantic, sweet or a little bit of everything. My heart is to capture images that bring warmth to the walls of your home, reminding you of how it feels to be with the ones you love most.
Close those twenty-six open browser tabs, you've found your photographer.
My years of wedding experience have honed my ability to sense when my clients need some enthusiastic direction and encouragement, or when to become a fly on the wall to capture the precious moments naturally unfolding. Other than dreamy romantic portraits of you two embracing or sharing your joy, my personal favorite moments to capture are sweet moments with your parents, the look your grandpa gives when he sees you in your dress the first time, your maid of honor tearing up during speeches.
I have been married for almost 5 years to my best friend, Jay. I learned SO much when becoming a bride myself, it's my passion to help couples have the best wedding experience! Our little family also consists of our two rescue dogs, Hank and Belle. They fill our lives with a ridiculous amount of joy! We are also expecting our first baby in April 2023! We can't wait to experience all the joys and challenges of parenthood.
In our free time, Jay and I love to make a good meal at home (he’s a MUCH better cook than me), get wrapped up in a new show, have friends over for a bonfire and drinks, or spend time on the North Shore!
I have been doing photography full-time since 2017 and every year gets better and better. I grew up on the other side of the camera - my mom is also a photographer and she passed along the same passion. It’s been my dream since I was a kid to photograph weddings and I do my best to never take the opportunity for granted! I’m a little type A...but FUN! I pride myself on being organized, assertive & a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my work, but I also value real over “perfect” every time.
A little about
Bauer is my maiden name, and I chose to keep my business name the same after getting married (my married name is Werness, pronounced "whirr-ness") as a nod to my love for photography and creativity since I was a young girl!
The main reason that I cherish my role at a wedding photographer is because of my love for marriage, family and the legacy that each new married couple creates. Two of my favorite people in the world, my grandparents, recently celebrated 65 year of marriage. Looking at their wedding photos is so precious to me, seeing how young and in love they are. All these years later, they've created a legacy of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren that are beginning families of their own. Documenting your story from engagement to babies is my highest honor.
