Capturing your true self, raw emotions, one photo at a time.

Inspired by your stories and your life, I document wedding days in a way that is authentic to you and the way you love. No two galleries are the same, which is why my clients fall in love with their wedding photos. When they look at their photos they see their wedding day with their emotions captured as they happened. They see themselves, they see their love, they see their loved ones, and they see the moments that mean the most from their wedding day.

After photographing over 300+ love stories, I have a full understanding of what matters: YOU, your love, your dreams, and your values, is what matters most on your wedding day.

I'm here for the couples that want to experience their wedding day by being present and authentic with the ones they love the most. I'm here for the couples that want to prioritize themselves and their dreams in whatever way that may be.

Whether you want to elope in your favorite Italian restaurant in Brooklyn, or plan an intimate wedding on a beach on the Oregon coast, I will be with you every step of the way. I will help you to craft a wedding day where you can be present with the one you love while documenting the raw and authentic moments that matter most.
