It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love and for your dreams,
for the adventure of being alive.
-Oriah Mountain Dreamer
I have one rule on your wedding day and that is that you HAVE FUN! This is the happiest day of your life as a couple and I want you to feel that. Blending into your wedding while capturing the joy and little moments is what I do. Your day is meant to flow organically and that is how I photograph your wedding. I won't take you away from family and friends for hours... because that's no fun for anyone. When it comes to photos of the two of you, I'll take you away no longer than twenty minutes. This isn't a magazine cover shoot. Time spent capturing the two of you is simply a breath of fresh air and a time to relax in each other's arms.
As I enter 2018, I am beyond thankful and so in LOVE with my job. Sharing your day with loved ones and friends make my heart swell and is something I do not take for granted.

What is YOUR story?
What is YOUR story?
Since I was a little girl, I always remember my Mother having a camera in her hand. I have inherited boxes and boxes of tangible photographs documenting my family's & my journey through life. My Mother captured everything just as it happened. Real life. Real moments. Real time. Those photographs are priceless. They tell stories and capture emotions that words cannot express. One could say she passed the photography gene to me. I've always needed some form of creativity in my life (i.e., sewing, playing instruments, singing, dancing, painting). The bug bit me as a twelve year old girl scout needing to earn a photography badge and then again in high school. The feel of film. The darkroom. A blank piece of photo paper one minute and then a tangible, developed print minutes later.
For me, photography is about capturing the moments in between the moments. It's capturing life, love and light from different perspectives. It's printing your photographs and filling your walls full of sweet memories. It's a tangible statement in a visual form.
Patient. confident. humorous. adventurous. spontaneous. outgoing. determined. focused.
