PHOTOGRAPHER & OWNER
When people ask me what I do for a living I tell them I am a photographer who gets to witness some of the most wonderful moments on earth. I show my gratitude by bringing out the best in others at every milestone and celebration that I am commissioned to cover.
With over 15 years of experience as a professional photographer, my journey began as an RN in the emergency room where I learned how deeply powerful love can be. It was there that I witnessed the priceless nature of the bonds between family and friends, and now I capture those bonds in a special and meaningful way. With respect, empathy and kindness interwoven into our customer service experience, my team and I treat your family like our family and deliver heritage artwork and collections of photographs that will make you smile, laugh, and remember every touching moment you spent together.

From the moment we meet, we take the time to get to know about you. Your choice of location, the ambiance of your wedding, and the way you want your loved ones to feel are all important elements in the luxury experience we provide you. We welcome your celebration to unfold naturally while you leave it to us to find the ideal lighting, the perfect angles, and the wonderful real story of your love without getting in your way or asking you to fake it.
To us, your wedding is a sacred celebration and we expect you to laugh, cry, and be overwhelmed with emotion. We won’t do anything to change that; in fact we will encourage you to be authentic because life is beautiful exactly how it is. Capturing unscripted moments is what we do, and when you need a little direction to get that fashionable shot you’re looking for, we are happy to gently guide you.
Last and definitely not least, we provide you with hundreds of gorgeous, timeless photographs and stand-alone pieces of artwork that will look lovely in your album, stunning on your walls, and impressive on social media.
