Photography is about telling stories. A simple glance, a quick smile, I live to capture everything as it happens in the moment. Whether it be as profound as your wedding day or the excitement of a new baby, I love to make your story come alive and be remembered forever.
I began this journey with a love of the arts in general. I had always carried a camera along with me wherever I went to document everything I came across. After I graduated college, I was ready to embark on the world of publishing. After a few freelance jobs, I got caught up in the world of photography.
My brother's wedding was coming up and knowing my love of photography, my brother wanted me to shoot his wedding. I had such a blast following them, catching little intimate moments along the way. I was shocked I loved it as much as I did. Being creative has always came easily to me. I get excited about new ideas and am constantly looking for the next 'it' thing. I truely appreciate where I've been and I believe it's helped me become who I am today. Fast forward to over 10 years and here I am doing what I love every single day.
The ideal wedding day experience that I strive to create for each couple is one that is authentic, organic, unhurried and bursting at the seams with joy, laughter and love. My job is to be the mirror that reflects the beauty that is already present in the connection you share with you future spouse, your family and your friends.
Also, as a wedding and portrait photographer, it's important that you get to know me (and kind of like me) since I will be tagging along with you on one of the most important days of your life. ;)
So... to sum it up, I'm pretty fun. Honest. And my favorite thing ever is when clients turn into friends. So let's do that.
