The Girl

Behind the

Camera

I started off my photography journey hiking to mountain tops and traveling with a point and shoot camera in tow. And I took so many photos because I knew that I could only be at the top of a mountain for so long, that my trip could only last so long, but that the photos I took would last forever.

Looking at my photos reminds me of the happy times, the amazing people I have met along the way, of how much I miss them of course, but mostly of how much joy every single experience has brought me. Which is why I have developed a photojournalistic approach to my wedding photography. We will spend time creating beautiful, timeless bridal portraits, but I will spend most of your day acting as an observer with a camera in hand. Just watching all of the happiness unfold, while clicking away to make sure that, when your wedding day is over, you have your photos of all of your happy memories forever.
