My first dream job was being a National Geographic photographer, and throughout many career paths of journalism, social media management, nonprofit communications, storytelling has been at the center of all I do. I've been practicing photography for 10 years, and officially launched my wedding photography business in 2020.

I'd love to be your guide throughout your wedding day, helping you relax and enjoy each moment with your partner with no forced smiles and rushed family photos! I will share your wedding vision and will be your ally in walking with you through a day you both enjoy, and have beautiful images from.

My style is a mix of documentary photojournalism, and authentic moments captured in portraits. My photography is crisp and natural. I like to say that my editing is to honor the "true coloring of the day" with a slightly warm tone. When you look at the images from your wedding, my goal is that you feel like you're reliving every moment and emotion as they really happened.

I work with you both to create joyful images through fun prompting, so your wedding portraits include with lots of laughter and joy. (Plus, some classic portraits). I capture the rest of the day capturing moments authentically, with a photojournalism eye. (Like the look of your family watching you say vows, your best friends dancing, a sweet in-between moment of you two).

Because I am in my first year of business, my prices are affordable starting at $200/hour. I'd be honored to be trusted with your story!

All couples are safe, welcome, and affirmed with me.

I'd love to talk, and hear about your wedding!
