Hi! I'm a wedding, engagement + lifestyle photographer based in Brooklyn, New York. Originally from the burbs of Ohio, I've been living in New York City for the past 7 years with my husband and our rescue pit bull, who we are obsessed with, Poppy.
Heck yeah! I love to travel, and shoot in new locations. If you have a destination in mind, let's chat about it!
If you’re interested in hiring me to photograph your wedding, I’ll send over a short questionnaire that will help me get to know you as a couple and I’ll be able to get a feel for the style of your wedding, the kinds of photographs you’re looking for and any other expectations you have for me as your photographer. If questionnaires aren’t really your thing, a chat on the phone is great, too, or (my favorite) a face-to-face meet for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Q: What should we wear for our engagement session? Is there anything we should avoid?
A: I always recommend tailoring your color choices to your skin tone, eye and hair color. Wear the color that looks best on you. I suggest coordinating colors and patterns together, for example, if one of you has chosen to wear a print/pattern, than the other should choose a solid. Hats, accessories and layers are great for adding diversity to your images. Feel free to keep it casual, or glam it up in formal wear, whatever makes you feel confident.
Q: What time of day is best for photography?
A: I prefer to shoot within two hours of sunrise or sunset when lighting is soft, and best for skin tones. The best light, in my opinion, is the beautiful golden glow right before the sun dips beyond the horizon- it really does make everyone look good.
Q: Do you edit all of the images?
A: Yes! Every last image you receive from me will be carefully and creatively edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. In fact, I spend more time editing your images than I spend physically at your session or wedding, and production is really what makes my style unique. You will receive your edited, high resolution jpg files via a beautiful online gallery.
