Hi! I'm Annelise, but you can call me Annie. I currently live in Nashville and have been here since 2012. I grew up in Rockford, IL. 


I started shooting with a DSLR camera when I was 10 years old. I really fell in love with photo and video in college when I started shooting live music in Nashville.


You might notice a have a wide range of types of photography and may be wondering what I really specialize in. The truth is, when I was just starting to shoot professionally, I took any and every gig that came my way. The result was that I got good at shooting a wide variety of shooting styles. I don't like to limit myself and I have a hard time sitting still, so that's just the way it is!

I will say, though, that I have a special place in my heart for working with creative people in the entertainment world, and working on music videos is where I feel the most myself.




People who know me usually describe me as "chill," which used to bother me but I'm learning to appreciate it. And it must be true! I am pretty easy to please. I love a good old regular cup of coffee, traveling with friends, and just enjoying my life. Good storytelling gets me PUMPED UP and I've found a natural ability in directing. I'm obsessed with any movie that has intentional visuals and a great story. 


Some clients and artists I have had the pleasure of working with include Apple Music, UMG Nashville, Red Light Management, Peermusic, River House Artists, BMG Nashville, Red Creative Group, Maren Morris, Parker McCollum, Larkin Poe, Gabe Dixon, Patrick Droney, Lucie Silvas, Daniel Donato, Emily West, Heather Morgan, Noelle Scaggs of Fitz and the Tantrums, Jordan Rowe, Kasey Tyndall, Paulina Jayne, Texas Hill, Catie Offerman, Tyler Dial, Lilly Winwood, Canaan Cox, and many more.


Let's create something together - or we can just get in touch! Shoot me a text or email and I'd love to chat.
