for the in love -
and those they love.


Photographing your intimate love story has evolved into an extension of who I am.  As your photographer, my philosophy is centered around capturing the essence of the two of you as you truthfully are. My biggest goal is be a fly on the wall and let you genuinely enjoy every moment of your day without feeling like the main purpose is posing for the camera. Above all else, I seek to honor your individuality, the in-between, I want to be there through it all with you. Let me be the one to help harbour your dearest memories of you and those you love. 

When you look back at your photos I want you to remember exactly how you felt in that moment and to be able to FEEL the emotions.


"She captured our day exactly the way we had hoped and envisioned. There was no detail missed.  She made us feel so comfortable and like we had known her forever! We can't even begin to tell you how amazing she is and our wedding day truly wouldn't have been the same without her."
