I have been a fine art and photo journalism photographer for over half my life. I struggle, just like every human on earth does from time to time. Our lives aren’t perfect. But what makes it feel closer to perfection are the moments that make up all that life around us. I want to hone  in and help you see them. Create them and be able to reminisce about them. I could talk about how perfect this or that is and come up with some trendy fufu and frills lingo that makes everything sound wonderful. But to be honest there is so much more. Sometimes the fufu is legit. Your flowers are gorgeous because who doesn’t like flowers. And yes you do look amazing as F and I seriously do think the light is magical, really magical. But there is the emotion of the moment, the subtle looks between you and your partner.  How it all looks is wonderful but the magic is in how it feels. I can be shy and introverted in my observations, seeing details that many people miss. I love to make prompts and inappropriate jokes to make you laugh and feel even more awkward than you probably already do to grab your organic personality.  I want to be silly and laugh and cry with you. Because, let’s call a spade a spade: I’m the photographer in the corner crying to the “sister of the bride’s” speech. And yes. I’ve probably never met her and said literally two words to her all day, but her words remind me how much I love my own sister.  My cheeks are always hurting from smiling behind the camera. I just can’t help it!



What I love!

  • My Husband! He is my Best-friend and confidant, not to mention a killer second photographer! He’s the tall guy in black hanging with me. 

  • Food! And I am still searching for the perfect gluten-free pizza! When is NYC gonna step it up!?

  • My family, animals and nature, of course!

  • Travel, because it makes my heart sing. 

Things you may never have
guessed about me!

  • I have been to every state but Hawaii and visited over 18 countries. 

  • I went to cosmetology school, and although I don’t work in a salon, I can fix that do on your wedding day and give a mean haircut if needed.

  • Give me some charcoal or any artistic medium and I could make you something amazing to put on your wall.

  • I have eight tattoos. My mom did not approve, at first. 

  • I canoed down the Mississippi when I was 16.
