It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera...they are made with the eye, heart & head."

I am so happy to meet you! I am so glad that you discovered my little corner of the internet.  I am so lucky to get to work with wedding clients and vacationers across the United States & Europe to curate and document their very own, special love story. 

I am an enneagram type two- the helper. I have never related to something so much in my life. I strive to allow for the best client experience and I am always ready to help no matter what. Sometimes that looks like steaming a bridesmaid dress, finding extra earring backs, fluffing your veil, or even bobby-pinning a rogue hair back in place. Don't worry guys, I got your backs too. I know it is important to find the ice to keep the drinks cold on the wedding day, attach a boutonniere, and even help the best man with his last minute speech. (Hey, I was a communications major in college- I know how to pull off a last minute spew of words!) I am always here to make things go seamlessly.
