After nearly 10 years as a professional photographer, I still wake every day feeling blessed. The trust my clients give to me to document the biggest moments in their life does not go unnoticed; neither does the importance of this gift. Growing up in an artistic household, I found my place behind a camera. There I found a deep love for being able to tell a story with frozen moments. The sentimental attachment to the past can be brought back by one photograph. That is powerful.

In my journey to document the honest and real of life, I use a photojournalistic approach to weddings, allowing the day to unfold around us. I document it as it happens; the emotional embraces, the stolen glances, the happiness, and the joy. There is a beauty to a sweet couple madly in love with one another. And beauty in the loved ones who are there to celebrate them.

From the first consultation to the day of your wedding and beyond, I am there to answer any questions and offer any suggestions to make your experience the best one possible. We discuss options to make your day flow easily and make the day YOUR day. Your wedding photographs should be a reflection of how your day happened, from the vows to the tears to the smiles.
