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 learning how to use a DSLR when I was 10 years old. In high school, my musical theater director asked me to take headshots for the cast and crew of a show I was in. I had a lot of fun with it, but I really fell in love with photo and video in college when I started shooting live music in Nashville. I shot my first wedding in 2015, and I have been a director and photographer full time since 2018.
People who know me usually describe me as "chill," which I'm learning to like about myself. I am pretty easy to please. I love a good iced coffee, being creative in every aspect of life, traveling with friends, and taking pictures as I go.
Every day is different and I've gotten to meet so many amazing people through my job. 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.
