You're engaged! Congrats!! Selecting a wedding photographer is not only an important decision, but also a very personal one.  I encourage you to browse my port folio and blog posts, read the F. A. Q., and to visit my social media pages (links at the bottom of the page), so that you become familiar with my style of wedding photography. I want you to feel completely confident in your decision, so that you can fully enjoy your wedding day knowing that your memories are carefully tended with thoughtfulness and integrity.


As a creative storyteller, I strive to capture the details and raw emotion of your wedding day.  A strong intuition, a watchful eye, and a unique artistic vision allow me to create authentic photographs which beautifully document your story. My low-key, unobtrusive approach allows you to fully enjoy the day as it unfolds. While I am comfortable posing and directing formal portraits at your request,  I will spend most of the day documenting your event from a journalistic perspective, so that your wedding remains rightfully about you and your closest connections. 

Inspired by light, shadow and emotion, each time I pick up my camera I strive to create something memorable by pushing my creativity to a new level, while maintaining artistic integrity through a cohesive story. I will collect the moments, big and small, that will bring you right back to all of the anticipation, love and joy you felt on your wedding day.  Get in touch and let's chat about your plans!
