WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER & PHOTOGRAPHY EDUCATOR 

The Perfect Blend of Professional and Personal

While I cherish inviting my brides into my bridal tribe and getting to know them personally, I never let my professional role fall to the wayside. My clients know they can trust my team and me to perform the same top-tier wedding experience for them as I have to their friends and family in the past.

I work with couples of all ages, colors, and lifestyles because I am not an asshole.

Over my years as a wedding photographer and photography educator, I have learned that I will never treat my clients like they are just another business transaction. My clients invoke so much joy in my life, and I am honored to call them family. 

That is why I conceived my Client for Life experience, where I celebrate my client's lifetime milestones well beyond a wedding day. Staying with the ones I cherish and choose to be around is natural to me. In fact, it creates a continuity that joins our lives together in a profound way.

It was then that I became even more connected to my purpose as a photographer.

While I would have loved to begin my photography education and vocation in the glamorous studios of a household-name magazine like Vogue, my story started out discordantly. Like many of my peers and students, my artistic career started as a fantasy while I was plotting my great escape from the corporate world. 

As I felt uninspired and overwhelmed in my insurance-sector 9 to 5, I resolved I needed something more… something that would empower me to develop meaningful relationships with my future clients and serve them from my heart. 

Recognizing the potential in my future, my mother proffered a loan for my first camera in January 2015. She understood the impact I could have on other lives by capturing photos of moments, places, and people that would become more than just a fading memory. 

When my mom passed away in the summer of 2019, only two short months after my own wedding, I turned to those photos of her beaming smile, and I felt unexplainable comfort. 

I thrive on pouring into my community and creating magazine-worthy images for my gorgeous brides.
