I've been taking photos my whole life. I started with my mom's Canon A-1 (which I still occasionally use!), and graduated to a purple digital point-and-shoot in high school which was heavily featured on my MySpace and Facebook. I'm originally from San Francisco and have a lot of pride about that, but did all my real growing up in NYC where I've been based since 2007. I went to Gallatin School of Individualized Study at NYU, where I was able to study whatever I was interested in (which, let's be real, was 99.9% the arts). After I graduated, I started my photography business. About 4 years in to shooting mostly portraiture, a friend asked me to shoot her wedding, and the rest is history.
I'm a New York City, California, and Destination wedding photographer, and I love love. Photographing love is what sets my soul on fire. Love is at the core of everything we do; it's what moves us and brings us together, and my ultimate goal is to capture all of YOUR love as authentically as possible, to the best of my ability. I want to tell your love story through photos.
If you're searching for a photographer who will befriend you, let you thrive as your weird selves, and make you feel comfortable and cool, HELLO, you've come to the right place. I genuinely want to forge a connection, hang with you, and earn your trust. I'll be there for you whether you need a safety pin or someone to wipe away your tears. I aspire to inspire freedom, adventure, and fun. I'm not into stiff prom-like poses, I deliver the movement of the day; little giggles to raucous laughter, stolen kisses, badass dance moves, and teary heartfelt moments. We'll DREAM BIG and make beautiful images together that will last you for forever. I'll create photographs that will bring you back to the joy of your day over and over again. I want to freeze all the feels and document the raw moments that can be missed in the blink of an eye. I love capturing the big moments AND the moments in between. I also love coming up with unique and creative portraiture. I'm the photographer who if asked or inspired will direct traffic around you to bring vision to reality.
Some extra notes about me: I'm a dog mom to my "influencer" pug Moose (@allhailthemoose), I cry when I laugh, I love afternoon tea, I'm slightly obsessed with Lady Gaga, and I'm a diehard Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan. I write music and do music production, and I love to lay down in the grass and stare at the sky, blasting beautiful music into my headphones. I always have some sort of creative project I'm working on at any given moment, like my quarantine project, Bloom!
