My passion for beautiful photography makes me jump out of bed every morning! When I photograph a wedding, I get excited and nervous all over again; ready to give it my very best. I realize that the moments I capture are the very first records of a marriage, a heritage, a new family tree. These are the moments that will be passed down from generation to generation – all in the form of photographs. I count it an absolute privilege to know that when I am long gone, my photographs will live for generations to come in many homes of many families. My hope is to give you an experience you will never forget and to show you how beautiful your love truly is. This is the one of the most wonderful times of your life and I can’t wait to get to know you. What lights a fire in your heart? How did you fall in love? What will your wedding celebration look like and feel like? Nothing makes me happier than meeting a new, unique couple with a love story all their own.
