I love what I do, I love the people I work with, my clients become my friends and I am so incredibly thankful for that. I am not the quiet sit in a corner type, I am loud, outgoing and slightly obnoxious, but what I have learned over the last few years on this journey is by me being myself during the time spent with my clients is how I get them to be themselves. So, if you are looking for the reserved photographer to show up and tell you to say cheese then I may not be your girl and that’s totally okay, but if you want to gain a friend who you can have an experience with and have beautiful memories to take from it than id love to hear from you!

What I have curated in my wedding photography style is so special to me, I have a directive approach, I am very hands-on with my couples... I love capturing the candid, playful moments with a mix of modern + editorial. At the end of the day, I want to capture your love in its purest form throughout the wedding day - with all of the moments from start to finish. It's within the chaos of the wedding day that your love can have a chance to really shine bright. I can't wait to learn all about you!

My Style

My travel expenses vary depending upon different locations. 

The cost for traveling to and from the destination as well as possible accommodation and meals is very individual.

If you are traveling for your marriage, you can always discuss your ideas and requirements with me.
I will be happy to create a customized package specially tailored for you.

I recommend that you also opt for a second shooter if 100+ guests are attending your wedding day. This is the best way if you don't want to miss out on any candid moments or special details. For example, when we are off capturing stunning bridal portraits, the second shooter can take candid pictures of your guests!

What are your travel costs?

This is my first time taking photos. Any advice?

Do we need a second shooter?

HELL YES! I love to travel, I mostly travel throughout the east coast but I'm game to go WHEREVER your love story takes me!

Are you available for travel?

After a phone call meeting, I will put together an individual wedding package, where I can specifically address your wishes, needs, and ideas.
As soon as I have received your signed contract and the 40% deposit for your wedding, your big day will be reserved for you.

First off, congratulations on taking the most difficult step! There really is no pressure whatsoever in front of my camera. I work with you to find a comfort level that makes your photo session feel more like a day out with a friend. But, I know someone will say, "that's not really advice" so heres one for my people in the back, confidence is key. So on the day of your session I encourage you to look your best so you can feel your best. If that means wearing a new outfit with a fresh haircut, or getting your nails done - by all means do it. I want you to feel your best because that personality will reflect in the photos. Ultimately my job is to guide you and thats exactly what i am going to do!

How can we book you for our wedding?
