I started photographing weddings because witnessing and capturing the love between two people on their wedding day gives me a feeling that I can't quite replicate. The first wedding I photographed was booked a week beforehand. The couple had moved to Texas but was from the Hudson Valley. They decided to have an intimate courthouse ceremony followed by a small dinner with friends and family. After speaking all week leading up to the wedding and meeting the couple the day before upon their arrival back to New York, I felt like I had known them forever. On the day of their wedding I felt like I had become a part of their family, not just their photographer. Getting to know all of my couples & seeing their form of love is one of the best parts of my job. From then on, I knew that wedding photography was something I had to pursue and I would always hold close to my heart.


Couples love us! See our reviews on The Knot.

why do i do this,
 you ask?

Since then, I feel like I have joined a lot of families and have been able to meet so many amazing people and experience love in so many forms. It’s important to me to capture the candid moments & the spirit of your wedding day. This could be during an intimate elopement with just the two of you or a large wedding surrounded by all of your friends & family. I try to create an environment where you don't feel the pressure and uncomfortable nature of being photographed and are able to be yourself. This allows me to photograph your day encompassing who you are, as well as creating artistic photos that tell your unique story, for you to look back on forever.

In addition to weddings, I offer engagement, maternity, family photography.
