Why weddings & portraits?


I got this question a lot when I decided to leave my award-winning career as a newspaper photographer.


And to be completely honest, it was because I love to be around love & happiness.


I share the feelings of what I photograph, the memories and moments become a part of my life too, and I treasure the personal relationship (and friendships) I get to build with all of my clients.


I give every client a friendly experience alongside pictures that showcase their individuality.

Pictures that capture the joy they feel so they can share and re-live it for generations.


I help plan out your vision and prepare - so all you have to do is show up and enjoy the moment.


Whether it’s for 1 hour or 12 - every experience with me is personal, unique, and filled with love & joy!!

My husband and I had a blast with her!"
