…is a passionate photographer since day one. I’ve been shooting weddings for over 15 years. When I first started out I wanted to be a part of something bigger through my talents. I wanted to be a war photographer, but then I realized I didn’t want to die so quickly, so in college I was led into the path of wedding photography. It’s one of the best things that ever happened to me. In my free time I love to play with my toddler, spend time with loved ones, and go to the movies. I’m also madly in love with anything Jane Austen…and on a cold, cloudy day a little Bronte soothes my soul. Christmas is my happy place, and yes, I am that person who listens to Christmas songs in June. You mean you don’t?! In all seriousness, I do love to photograph people…the ones in love most of all. While there’s nothing more noble than growing old together and spending a lifetime with the one you love, I think there’s something so pure and beautiful about new love and I hope to capture every moment of yours. I oana be the one who gives you that timeless portrait that hangs on your walls until the two of you celebrate your 50th anniversary together…and beyond. To me, that’s being a part of something bigger.
