I am a photographer and storyteller. For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by stories and traditions. I am passionate about documenting real human connections and I love learning all the meanings behind details at weddings and celebrations. When I’m not photographing, I can be found spending time with family and friends, exploring new places, and craving tacos. I love meeting new people, making new friends, and connecting with my clients. I can’t wait to get to know you, so let’s talk!

My love for photography began through the inspiration of a life-changing trip to Luxembourg. I made incredible friends and spent a summer exploring the city, only to return home without any photographs to share from the experience. My mom, a school portrait photographer, introduced me to the basics of photography and I quickly fell in love with the medium.
In high school I was able to develop my skills further with the help of some wonderful art teachers and many hours spent in the darkroom. I participated in two photography internships in high school; one with a celebrity photographer and one with a wedding photographer.
Following graduation, I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City to study Photography and Digital Media, with a minor in Art History. While at FIT I honed my technical skills and learned to more thoughtfully capture moments by shooting analog 4x5 and medium format film. I developed an appreciation for not just taking pictures but thoughtfully creating with intention and much of my work focused on learning and documenting love stories. For example, I would talk to and photograph strangers at floral shops and learn why and who they were buying flowers for. I also made a documentary and photo series on gay marriage in New York, meeting with couples in their homes and listening to their stories.
While attending FIT I learned about the editorial process through an internship at Cosmopolitan and gained insights into the process of choosing projects and being true to your vision and aesthetic while interning with Danielle Levitt. After photographing a friend's wedding, I realized that while I loved all of the experiences I had had so far, this was the direction that I wanted to take my career. I loved the non-stop rhythm, and the opportunity to photograph people in a natural environment.
After college, I worked at New York Magazine covering many fashion weeks as well as working with established photographers Evan Kafka and Melanie Acevedo during the week and shooting weddings on the weekends. After a few years I was able to transition to shooting weddings full time. I am lucky to have made a career doing what I love, and can’t wait to tell the next story- yours!

The gear I use allows me to take the best possible photos in a wedding environment. I primarily shoot with a Canon 5D Mark IV with Canon L and Sigma Art series lenses. This allows me to capture your day in natural, romantic light while never missing a moment! For a complete gear list see my FAQ.
