I love to capture whatever is around me because every moment is fleeting. Photography is one of the best ways to make those "moments" permanent. I love adventures, traveling, ethnic food, ice cream, and a good wine and cheese night. My favorite person is my sweet husband, and I look back at our wedding all the time! Getting married helped me to realize the importance of wedding photography even more than I could’ve imagined. We also have a 15 month old daughter who is my little sidekick. I am a geek about printing photos, quality, and capturing raw and romantic emotion.
Weddings & portraits are my favorite thing to photograph! They keep me on my toes & help me to always see beauty in every person and place. One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to know a couple, and feeling overwhelming joy as I photograph them, knowing that they'll get to look back at the photos and love them later. Then I get to go home and look through the photos afterward and just smile til my cheeks hurt as I see the magical day I was privileged to experience with them. What can I say - I just love capturing people’s love and then showing people how beautiful they are in it.
