After being in photography for 15 years I still get excited about being around my cameras. Over that time I saw myself evolve from a photographer to a storyteller. That’s truly what all of this is about. How your story can be told in the most honest, exciting and creative way through my eyes, after we get to know each other. One of my favorite times is getting to know how and when you fell in love with one another. This helps me make sure that I do not miss any of the small things on your wedding day that are in fact the true moments you will remember forever. I love what I do. But even more so, I love that what I do will be around years from now so you will always have the memories we create to treasure forever.
I am a passionate artist in many forms but having the opportunity to be the one to tell the story of two souls in love with my camera is where I find my sweet satisfaction. My heart swoons at a the sound of film winding, movement of beautiful gowns, dashes of calligraphy, sweet emotions unraveling, and every little detail that brings a wedding day together. My style is very romantic and passion-driven with an editorial influence. Nothing makes me happier than to know my brides cry and laugh as they see all of the precious memories captured on their wedding day. I know that your wedding day is more than just the dress, the cake, or the flowers. Nothing makes me happier than serving couples who want a marriage more beautiful than their wedding day.
