Drawing inspiration from my background in fashion and graphic design, my take on photography is viewing it as journalistic art. We collect our memories in moments unposed, but as a former bride and mom of two, I understand how quickly a fleeting moment can pass.
Being a bride before, the most important thing to me was having the moments captured that I missed. I also wanted to look and feel like a million bucks without having to say a word.
So I decided to always create that experience for my couples. I call it Editorial Storytelling, a carefully curated blend of classic editorial images and candid captures to showcase your whole story. Because you want to look & feel glamorous on your wedding day.
My approach is more than just delivering precious heirloom galleries –it’s also about creating a high-end wedding photography experience. I’m invested in you, in your story.
I aim to document something more. Every moment, preserved in time.

Get to Know Me
I am a documentary wedding and lifestyle photographer. I thoroughly enjoy creating visual journals of your love for one another.
I believe the littlest details make the biggest impact. Your images will reflect that. I want you to relive this day for the rest of your life. More than “just being your photographer” I’ll give you my time. I’ll pin that boutonnière if no one else in the room knows how to do it. Whatever it is, I’m here for you.
Slow and simple is my preferred way of life– my approach to weddings is the same. A thoughtfully designed timeline lets you enjoy the little moments, experience deeper connections with your friends and family, and allows me to document your wedding day with intention.
I am a wedding and portrait photographer who loves capturing ALL the candids. Laughing, crying, happy or sad, I'll be sure to capture every emotion, so you can look back and re-tell your story. I guess you can call me a visual storyteller with a hint of glint. I will capture all the details that matter the most to you. I am at your service and will do what is necessary to help you breathe and relax on your love day.
