[  a little bit more about me ]

When I married my husband, it gave me amazing insight as a photographer and helped me understand what moments and experiences were truly important to couples. For you, I strive to be a calm presence in the noise, capturing the beautiful, emotional connections between you and your partner, all the small moments you won’t remember in the rush of the day. I want your photos to help you remember how it felt to be at your wedding, not just how it looked. I shoot through all the action, never putting my camera down. Your hair might be wind swept, your dress might get dirty, and if you're a crier, your make-up might smudge. I'm there to capture it all, because that's the good stuff.
