Passionate about turning your most heartfelt moments into your legacy of love

When I was first getting to know my husband, Michael's, family, I loved hearing the stories of their marriages— the good times and bad, better and worse, joy as well as sorrow, and always love.

But the very first time I saw his grandmother’s collection of family wedding photos perched atop her mantel I had to stop and take in what over 200 years of marriage looked like on display. As I looked on at the images framed on the mantel, immediately all of the stories shared by Michael’s grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins came rushing through my head, and it was so easy to trace them all back to the days they said “I do.”

In my role as a wedding photographer, I capture all of the raw emotions of your big day, so when you look back at those images you are reminded of the fullness in your heart and you can see how that first day of marriage created a legacy of love.


For this grand celebration of your love, I believe it's importance to strike a balance. My approach is a mix of both traditional portraiture and candid imagery. I strive to capture the biggest moments and the smallest details to provide a full picture of what the day looked and felt like, with a signature edit that will allow your memories to endure for decades to come. Most importantly, I want to create space for you to fully be present in the moment, with a peace of mind in knowing you'll be able to revisit these unforgettable memories again and again.

AUTHENTIC IMAGERY TO last the  test of time


They find joy in the simplest moments together, and strive endlessly in their continued pursuit of one another. They believe in the beauty of the wedding day, but are most looking forward to marriage and a lifetime of partnership and togetherness.

my clients are seekers of beauty, lovers of connection, WITH A TASTE FOR romance AND awe-inspiring moments.
