The big moments, natural portraits that feel and look like you, and all the unscripted moments in between. This is my life's work.

I provide a comprehensive wedding photography experience based on ten years of experience and an inherent passion for weddings.


Celebrate your love and document your life at all stages.


Whether you are dating, engaged, celebrating an anniversary, or expecting your first baby, I would love to create a collection of candid, lightly directed, and timeless portraits for you.

Family photography unlike anything you've experienced before.


Unposed, nostalgic, and candid family photography experiences that preserve your family exactly as you exist together.


Photos that you and your children will love is my goal.

I am not the type of photographer who will just show up to take photos and tell you to say cheese. Our relationship is more than a business transaction. Working closely with you and taking a collaborative approach to your photo session or wedding day photography is important to me, and this approach creates the best conditions for creating authentic images that document those you love and the moments you share together. 


Love is love, and this is a safe place for yours. I continually work to educate myself to be a better ally and the learning will never cease because I am committed to creating and sustaining a safe space for you to express your committed love. Because all human beings are created equal and free to love regardless of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, culture, religion or ability.


Being photographed is a vulnerable experience for couples and families alike. Creating images for others that capture the intimacy of your love and life is also a vulnerable task. This is why it is so important that our collaboration is founded on trust. The more we trust each other, the more vulnerable we can be with each other and the better I can create images that you will love.

Photographs are meant to be printed, displayed, and preserved. 

Technology will become obsolete, and cannot be passed down from generation to generation.

This is why I believe in the importance of high-quality printed products.


Whether you've hired me for your wedding or to document your family, I include album or print credits as an inherent part of every photography experience I provide.
